Terry Francona has yet to lose a World Series game as manager. (9-0)

DOES THE MLB ON TBS PACKAGE REALLY BENEFIT FANS AND VIEWERS?

Quote:
This particular package is an enigma. First, it airs on Sunday afternoons and doesn’t have a consistent stating time unlike ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball which always airs at 8 p.m. ET. The MLB on TBS games could start at 1 p.m., 1:30 or even as late as 2 p.m. The package rarely airs games at 4 p.m., although it could if it wished.

And unlike the other sport to which which Turner own the rights, the NBA, production values and announcers pale in comparison to basketball. We’ve seen TBS try to hit the ground running when it broadcasts the MLB Postseason, but it has to play catch up. There was the silly scorebug which seemed to take up the entire upper left corner of your TV screen and it took a while before fans saw a pitch count graphic.

TBS also has had issues in the broadcast booth. It tried to showcase Chip Caray as its lead announcer, an experiment which just didn’t work whether he was constantly saying “FISTED” or describing a line drive as a base hit. Currently, Inside the NBA host Ernie Johnson is the lead announcer for the MLB on TBS, and while EJ is an excellent host, his play-by-play is not as strong as his studio work.

I honestly forget that MLB is on TBS until the playoffs start.

Not really at home watching TV in the middle of the day on Sundays in the summer.

Well, no celebratory craziness in the city this morning for obvious reasons.

GM of the Cubs Jed Hoyer traded Corey Kluber to the Cleveland Indians for Ryan Ludwick while the GM of the Padres. As a Padres fan I love the fact that it is coming back to bite him. Kluber and Andrew Miller are going to pitch the Indians to a World Series championship.

Cubs in 6. Win games 3 and 5 at Wrigley then come back to Cleveland and win game 6.

Liked the 7:05 PM EDT start time to the game much better. I know it sucks for the people on the West Coast, but being able to watch the full game and still go to bed by 11 is nice, not to mention my boys got to see some of the early innings before bed.

Cubs came back with it last night. This may be a Series after all.

Not me! I had to work until 9:00!


I'm still bothered by the fact that home field is decided by the All-Star game. I really hope they change it back to the old ways.

Bad game last night, but hopefully the Tribe can recover. I have a feeling winning game 3 in Wrigley will be a tall order.

What was the old way? I think it might have just alternated. I agree that it needs to be record based.

We're ready for tonight here at our wacky startup that's really a corporate shill but pretending we're not office.

Yeah they used to alternate between leagues. Rather have that then some silly All-Star game determine home field. If anything, it should be record based.

a grand slam and a 2 run homer will do that.

I'm thinking Cleveland is going to win... home field and Kluber on the mound. I'd rather the Cubs though.

hey Cleveland fans, remember when you made fun of the Warriors for blowing a 3-1 lead in the NBA finals?

For whatever reason I've been rooting for the Indians throughout the post season so I'll stick with them in Game 7. I don't have ties to either team so I can just sit back and enjoy the final game.

That grand slam by Addison is gonna be the one you see decades down the line via media posterity. Like one for the history archives.

The events of Game 6 live on in posterity if the Cubs win Game 7. It's not a Carlton Fisk scenario. If you're a Cubs fans then I wish you good luck tonight.
