ESPN2, ESPN Deportes and ESPN Online Add New Series

SportsNewser was in attendance at ESPN’s annual upfront presentation in New York, as ESPN unveiled a slate of new programming for ESPN2, the Spanish-language ESPN Deportes and for the network’s digital properties.

The centerpiece was a new afternoon lineup for ESPN2. The channel will add two new half-hour programs in “Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable,” hosted by Miami-based sports columnist Dan Le Batard, as well as “Numbers Don’t Lie,” which is designed to appear to fantasy players and stat freaks by looking at the sports stories of the day in a new way.

“Numbers Don’t Lie” will run at 3:30 PM, with Le Batard’s program airing at 4 PM. To make way for the new shows, “SportsNation,” which has become ESPN2′s signature show, will move to 5 PM.

Mike Mayock Replacing Matt Millen, Joe Theismann

According to Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated, the NFL Network will shake up their broadcast booth next season by hiring analyst Mike Mayock and getting rid of Matt Millen and Joe Theismann.

The NFL Network declined to comment when asked by SI.com and no formal announcement on Mayock is expected for several weeks.

Clippers Announcer Misses Game Due To Traffic

I’m sure you’ve heard stories about how bad traffic is in Southern California.

(As a Los Angeleno, I can tell you it’s all true.)

Los Angeles Clippers play-by-play announcer Ralph Lawler fell victim to the traffic on Wednesday night, missing a rare Clippers victory as a result.

A series of fatal accidents on Interstate 10 made the freeway a standstill, making it impossible for Lawler to make it to Staples Center in time.

In case you’re wondering why Lawler couldn’t take the streets to work – he lives in La Quinta, Calif., 135 miles east of Staples Center.

You have to really love the Clippers to commute two hours each way for work.

Don Larsen to Appear on MLB Network Following Roy Halladay No-No

Yesterday Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay became only the second man in Major League Baseball history to throw a no-hitter in the postseason. Today, MLB Network will have the other man: Former Yankees pitcher Don Larsen, who pitched a perfect game in game five of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Larsen will appear just after noon to talk about Halladay’s feat with MLB Network’s Greg Amsinger, Al Leiter, Barry Larkin and John Hart.

Tonight, MLB Net will air an interview with Halladay, conducted by Mitch Williams.
