Or will they?

This news story makes it sound like they will sell back some of their rights to ESPN:

Makes sense since with the tiny # of households that get TTC, they couldn't sell the ads for enough cash not to take a huge bath. I think the partnership is the best idea. TTC should let ESPN show Andy, Serena, Blondie, and a little Fed - and TTC could show all the good early round matches.

I wish ESPN would let Luke Jensen work the booth with Cliffy. Couldn't be any worse and 99% sure it would be better. They might have to give Luke a downer - he might be a little too hyper for Cliff.
