    Olbermann is scheduled to serve as a host for the Turner Broadcasting System's coverage of post-season Major League Baseball playoff games.

    The move is a logical one for Olbermann, who began his television career as a sportscaster for almost 20 years before spewing his venom on politics for the liberal MSNBC and Current TV channels.


    According to the Hollywood Reporter, Olbermann will lead TBS's Atlanta-based studio show with Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley and possibly a second analyst. This season, the channel will cover both Wild Card playoff games, 18 of the 20 League Division Series contests and even has exclusive rights to the National League Championship Series.

    Its well known that Keith is a fan of the game, and when you combine that with his studio experience, keen insight and passion for baseball and its history, hell add a new dimension to our MLB post-season studio shows," David Levy, president of sales, distribution and sports at Turner Broadcasting, said in a statement.


    We're excited to have him join Dennis in studio and look forward to Keith sharing his in-depth knowledge of the game, MLB teams and players with our viewers for three great weeks in October.

    At least he's doing sports and not politics. I always liked him as a sportscaster before he went insane on MSNBC & Algore TV.

    He knows less about sports than he does politics.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    He's actually incredibly knowledgeable about baseball but that doesn't mean he's any less a giant douche.

    TBS's baseball coverage sucked before he joined now it's going to suck 10 times as hard. I have no idea why MLB gave (or renews) them the contract. Must be about the dollars.

    He's a huge baseball fan and quite insightful. However, still a giant douche.
