Reportedly, MLB is now taking bids for its other TV package -- the games that currently are split among Fox and TBS, including most of the post-season.

Fox wants the whole package and would split the games between the Fox broadcast network and the Speed motor racing channel (which would become a general all-sports channel). TBS's bid would split the games between TBS and CBS. NBC apparently is an underdog, but might submit a bid.

According to this writer, MLB is looking for $800 million a year for the package -- double what Fox and TBS pay now.
