TBS' Plans for MLB Hot Corner in 2008

Last October in its first year of airing the MLB playoffs, TBS tried something new by supplying online content to compliment its postseason coverage.

TBS Hot Corner, Day 10 or This Is The End

Arizona pulled to within 6-4 in the 8th, but Manny Corpas came on to get a 4 out save and wasn’t it fitting that Eric Byrnes made the final out? As I’ve mentioned, it’s been fun watching TBS Hot Corner. The show got off to a shaky start, but the show overcame that and hit […]

TBS Hot Corner, Day 10 or We're Coming to the End
