Awful Announcing: Lucia: MLB is Urging iTunes to Pull Team-Related Podcasts (UPDATE)

In one of the more disappointing things we’ve seen out of them lately, MLB is reportedly requesting that iTunes pull several team-related podcasts from their service. Among the affected podcasts are Twins podcast Gleeman and the Geek (hosted by Aaron Gleeman of NBC Sports), Pirates podcast Pirates Prospects, a second Twins podcast in Talk to Contact, Mets podcast Mets Musings, Cubs podcast Bleacher Nation, and Yankees podcast It’s About the Yankees, Stupid, among many others.

Tweets from Aaron Gleeman:

- “Gleeman and The Geek” was removed from iTunes after 144 episodes because we’re told MLB requested several team-related podcasts be removed
- Hopefully it’ll get resolved, but it’s scary that MLB can just tell iTunes to remove a three-year-old show with 15,000 listeners an episode.
- OK, so MLB won’t get back to us and iTunes won’t get back to us. Not sure what to do other than make a big stink about it. So let’s do that.
