The MLB championship series is finally here and if you're as excited as I am that the best teams in baseball are going head to head, then you'll put your baseball cap on and "catch" all of the MLB games in high definition on your Dish Network satellite television - you can probably leave your baseball glove in the garage...or not. The National League Championship Series and the American League Championship Series can both be found on your satellite TV provider, Dish Network, via the TBS or local FOX affiliate channels for complete postseason coverage.One of the best matchups in baseball this season will air on TBS tomorrow, Friday, October 14th via your Dish Network satellite television on the TBS channel. The New York Yankees will visit the Texas Rangers' home stadium in the first game of the series. Should be an entertaining series to say the least with the Rangers' super star pitching by Wilson, Lewis and Hunter and the Yankee's unstoppable offense with consistent heavy hitters like Jeter, Teixeira, A-Rod and Cano. Even with the Rangers' strong defense, the Yankees have a history of post season domination that could prove intimidating to the Rangers, where power players rooted in traditional New York "winning" style, like Mo and Andy Pettite, bring their 'A' game to the championship series, having fans, including my dad, saying "hip hip Jorge!"...again and again.Viewers can watch all of the MLB American League Championship Series or DVR the games through Dish satellite on TBS during the following dates/times:Game 1: October 15th, 8:00 PM ET, NY Yankees @ TX RangersGame 2: October 16th, 4:00 PM ET, NY Yankees @ TX RangersGame 3: October 18th, 8:00 PM ET, TX Rangers @ NY YankeesGame 4: October 19th, 8:00 PM ET, TX Rangers @ NY YankeesGame 5: October 20th, 4:00 PM ET, TX Rangers @ NY YankeesGame 6: October 22nd, 8:00 PM ET, NY Yankees @ TX RangersGame 7: October 23rd, 8:00 PM ET, NY Yankees @ TX RangersThe postseason story for the National League is all about pitching this year including a total of six all stars on the mound from Roy Halladay on the east coast to Tim Lincecum on the left coast.
