For Dodgers playoffs, we only get Vinnie on radio

The Dodgers haven't played in the post-season since 2009, so some fans may have forgotten how it works. Vin Scully doesn't get to do national TV broadcasts. This year all the postseason baseball games will be on TBS and Fox. Scully will be relegated to the Dodgers radio broadcast. The plan is for him to narrate the first three and last three innings of every playoff game, including on the road apparently. During the regular season Scully rarely travels beyond California and Arizona. Rick Monday and Charley Steiner will handle the middle three innings on radio. From ESPN LA's Arash Markazi:

MLB postseason games will air on TBS and Fox, but Scully said he has no plans to call any of the Dodgers' games on television, even if they advance to the World Series.

"I'm just going to be on radio," Scully said. "I have no reason to be on TV. I don't deserve to be there. I'm not going to intrude on the fellas who have been working TV. No, no, I'm not going to go near TV."

Semi-related: Mayor Eric Garcetti said this weekend he's weighing whether to push for renaming a city street for Vin Scully.
