Keith Olbermann Gets A New Job, WAY More Basebally Than The Last!

Filed under: TV NewsZportzBaseball

keith olbermann tbs major league baseball mlb postseason show job current tv

Current TV is eating its decision to boot Keith Olbermann, because he's totally moving on to bigger and better things! That's right, TBS has hired him to… wait… really? To host the TBS’ Major League Baseball postseason studio show?

Nevermind, Current TV is probably still happy with their decision! LOLz!

Keith, in his first post-Current job, will be joining analyst and Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley. You might not remember this, but Keith is a veteran sports reporter/anchor in addition to all those years doing just the news! He anchored ESPN’s SportsCenter from 1992 to 1997. He was even recently a guest host of MLB Network’s Hot Stove.

So yeah, he's qualified — it just seems like a step backwards from reporting on big world news!

A job's a job, though! Ha!

Major League Baseball has some of the most intensive drug testing in the world of professional sports.

And it's about to get even more intense.

Starting in 2013, the MLB is going to test each player by drawing all of their blood and holding it overnight. If they die, they're juicing up.

JK! LOLz! We totally had you going.

What they're actually doing is starting in-season testing for human growth hormone (HGH).

The Dodgers Have OFFICIALLY Been Sold To Magic Johnson And His Crew

The Dodgers have kicked off their season with a phenomenal record, but now the new owners can finally start rejoicing because the $2 billion deal is officially CLOSED!

Magic Johnson is now the public face of the major league ball club with Mark Walter running things behind the scenes while Stan Kasten serves as CEO.

“The Dodgers emerge from the Chapter 11 reorganization process having achieved its objective of maximizing the value of the Dodgers through a successful Plan of Reorganization, under which all claims will be paid. The Dodgers move forward with confidence — in a strong financial position; as a premier Major League Baseball franchise; and as an integral part of and representative of the Los Angeles community.”

Former owner Frank McCourt, who drove the team into bankruptcy, didn't make out too bad either. He reportedly made about a billion bucks through the deal and still got to maintain some ownership of the stadium's parking lot.

One would think all this financial turmoil would have affected the team's game, but they are better than ever. Matt Kemp and the rest of the Dodgers crew are #1 in the National League West!

Keep up the good work, guys! Playoffs are a LONG way off!
