TBSAs the postseason approaches, TBS will become a new player in the television broadcast field for Major League Baseball after a new national television broadcast agreement was reached this year. With that, the network has released who will be in the booth for NLDS, ALDS, and the NLCS series. As reported by USA Today:

Friday, [Turner Sports President David Levy] says, TBS will announce that its game analysts will include Steve Stone, who has worked at WGN and ESPN and won the 1980 AL Cy Young Award, and Bob Brenly, at WGN after calling games for Fox in 2004 and managing the Arizona Diamondbacks to a World Series win in 2001. They'll join previously announced Joe Simpson, a longtime TBS Atlanta Braves analyst, and Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn.

Also joining: Play-by-play announcers Ted Robinson, an ex-San Francisco Giants and New York Mets announcer, Don Orsillo, who calls Boston Red Sox telecasts, and Dick Stockton, who calls NFL games for Fox and NBA games for TNT. They join Chip Caray, who'll work with Gwynn, the only pairing TBS has revealed.

With the postseason nearly here, make sure and check our 2007 Postseason Broadcast Schedule to see what games are on what networks on what days.
