Hey John-

It is reported on foxsports.com that the M's and O's are very close to getting and Eric Bedard deal done. I have to say I have mixed emotions. I was really hoping Reds management was going to be effective this offseason. Beard really would've helped this team, but not for 3 top prospects and a pitcher with only 2 years left on his contract. I am very happy to see Joey Votto, Homer Bailey, Johnny Cueto and Jay Bruce are still Cincinnati Reds. Sometimes the trade not made ends up being the best one.

Good Point Anon:

Let's go the other way around: What would it cost us in terms of players to get Joey Votto, Homer Bailey, Johnny Cueto and Jay Bruce?

For the A's to get that kind of talent, it cost them their 2 top players...

For those of us not in the Reds' FSN Ohio area of the state, do you know if these broadcasts will be made available on dvd/video anytime down the road? Thanks and go Redlegs.

Have you heard anything on MLB getting their own tv network going? NFl & NHL are okay but I need the baseball fix!

OK, who is willing to tape and trade the Seaver, Browning and the Indians game. I live a few states over and don't have access, but would love to have these three games to watch. You guys in Cincy area are so lucky to be able to watch these, I'm so jealous.

10:18, I'm pretty sure that the MLB is launching a station in 2009

I believe I heard MLB.tv is in the works. Brace for the fight with cable providers.

Why are the TV ads saying the game being shown on 1/14 is the 1972 NLCS Game 5, while the listings here say otherwise? We WANT the 1972 game!

I hope FSN Ohio will be showing the 1972 game & more older games in the future. The older the game, the better!

Sadly they did not show one of the "Holy Grails", the 1972 NLCS game 5 as they advertised. very disappointed already :(
