MLB Network has a head start on Jan 1

On January 1, the Major League Baseball Network will debut.  And unlike the NFL Network, it will already be carried on major cable systems throughout the country. 

The very first thing viewers will see is a show called Hot Stove which will (of course) discuss trades, signings, and other off-season moves by teams. 

MLB Network will also air a show called MLB Tonight, a seven-hour evening show which will consist of highlights and analysis.

A couple other points:  At this point, MLB Network has NO plans to have any programming specific to the fantasy baseball audience (boo hiss).  Interesting, since that angle has been so integral in their MLB.com programming. 

Oh, for any of you Bob Costas fans out there, MLB Network isn’t making any promises yet that he’ll be part of the network but they’ve been talking.
