TBS Broadcast

I have not been impressed by what I have seen from TBS. It's sad to see that money dictates the channel we have to watch and not quality of the broadcast. These announcers are terrible butchering the names and there is some annoying "hiccup/pause" every couple of minutes. Also, the quality of "analysts" is very bad. Frank Thomas won't even look at the camera when he talks/stutters over a sentence. Not to mention that TBS didn't come out in HD until right before the playoffs, so my stupid cable company doesn't offer it. I am completly annoyed tonight. I feel sorry for the people that have to work with me in the morning after this all-around poor display of baseball.

Also, did anyone else notice that idiot of a Cubs fan behind home plate that spent the first 6 innings talking on his cell phone, waving to the camera and holding **** up? That just goes back to what everyone on here always brings up about being around ignorant "fans" they are forced to sit next at games. Just ridiculous. I will be surprised if I don't hear or read something about that tomorrow.

That idiot I am talking about just got busted for having a lighted Cubs sign while the pitch was about to be thrown and the umps said something to him. WHAT A FREAKING TOOL!!!!!!! How does he not get kicked out of the game?!?!

Dick Stockton

I agree the coverage by TBS has been disappointing. Dick Stockton is an old NBA guy and Ron Darling, wtf has he been doing the last 10 years? The local weather>? And Ernie Johnson with Cal Ripkin and Frank Thomas. Boring.

I finally had to turn the TV to mute and turn on Pat and Ron. I couldn't stand to hear them praising the Diamondback team while finding every little thing negative about the Cubs to bring up! Man, for a minute, I thought i had ESPN on! And, did you guys notice Soriano limping around the outfield???? I sure didn't, but the TV guys sure did! Idiots.

Damn, I missed that. If I wasn't so pissed right now, I would go back and look for that, but I don't want to be reminded of the outcome.

Yeah, Ernie Johnson sucks, he mis-pronounced Augie Ojeda's name AND Soto. How do you screw up those two names? Ojeda was with a long E on the pre-game show and Soto was pronounced like Otto... Do you homework gentlemen!!! It reminds of when Ramirez first came to the Cubs and they kept mis-pronouncing Aramis like Air-a-mus. TBS sucks...

All of these same thoughts crossed my mind at these exact moments. I had to rewind the DVR for the Soriano thing 3 times and I still didn't see the "limp". Is it just too much to expect any sort of excellence in a playoff broadcast? How does TBS not get ANY regular season games other than the Braves, yet they are awarded sole possession of the first 2 rounds of the playoffs?
