The MLB Playoffs on TBS!

TBS PostseasonThe MLB Divisional Series was kicked off today, and the most exciting game TBS has covered so far was the last game of the regular season. Not to say if your a Philly (won 5-1) or Yankee (won 7-2) fan it wasn’t a good day, but it just wasn’t all that exciting for the rest of us. The Dodgers game is the only one that’s been interesting so far. The Dodgers are currently up 3-2 going into the bottom of the 5th and are surprisingly ripping Carpenter. So this game could be promising! Watching the playoffs and the amazing last game of the regular season it has made me realize I just don’t enjoy any announcer combos baseball has to offer. Maybe they’re dumbing it down too much for the people who don’t know what’s going on, but I rarely hear anything remotely insightful. Maybe they use the sideline reporters too much, I think Craig Sager always scares me a little the first time I see him everynight. He gives me that hide your kids because I don’t know about this guy vibe, but at least we don’t have to hear them more than five or six times a game. One thing I’m a HUGE fan of TBS for having, is the pitch-by-pitch K zone up they throw in the corner for every batter. It almost makes up for the weak announcing crews that are scared to make anyone sound like a bad person. I’d love to hear them call guys out, and stop playing the soft story line. We need some more Charles Barkley’s on the air!

You can vote for more than one combo of announcers if you really think they are equally good… Is that even possible?

    For me the ALDS NLCS are just precursors as to the main course. This is but an appetizer as far as I’m concerned. I was a bit worried by Torre choosing to walk Pujols. I think he’s going to make the Dodgers pay for that in Game 2 ! It’s never a good thing to get a player of his caliber riled up for all of the wrong reasons.

      I think losing the game will get Pujols more riled up than the walk. I was pretty impressed with the sudden offensive firepower the Dodgers showed! They haven’t strung together that many hits in weeks! If they somehow beat Wainwright tonight, they have a great chance of winning this series…

        If they should beat Wainwright then you consider the series to be pretty much over. It’s what makes a best of 5 game series all the more tantalizing . Win those first two and you’re essentially have just take one of the next three and that’s it.

        I don’t know whether or not you’re politically active . But I did the following op-ed piece . Speaking as a military vet (British Royal Marines). I’m somewhat aghast as to the indifference being shown by the present administration as to what’s now going on in Afghanistan. You’re by no means obligated to leave a comment. But should you wish to do so then by all means let me know what you think as to the merits of the piece ?
