    One Problem:

    National News outlets don't pay their sources (teams), they pay leagues (like ESPN with NFL/MLB), so im not sure how this will work.....

    The Mets and Yahoo together? That's basically the anti-Belichick/Brady combination when it comes to recent success.

    ESPN pays MLB for broadcast rights. They don't pay the Boston Red Sox for rights to do interviews in the clubhouse or to get their best customers on the field for batting practice

    Hahaha, they ‘lured Wallace Matthews away from the Daily News’, an awful writer from a close to dead paper. Quite a coup!

    Agreed that this won’t last long.

    Sure, it's not a 1:1 comparison, but the money ESPN pays to a league it covers gives them access to the teams AND the league. It's just more of the same.

    Not that I'm interested in the product in any way. My point is it's pretty much all incestuous, this is just the next step.
