TBS's Slogan Is "Very Funny," Which Is Fitting Because Its Baseball Analysis Is A Joke

The MLB playoff coverage on TBS has suffered the arrows of critics for years, and it hasn't really shown any signs of improvement. How the same company that can produce the brilliant Inside the NBA drops the ball so terribly with MLB coverage is a mystery, but there's no questioning the wide range of issues with TBS's coverage. From uninformed broadcasters (Cal Ripken, Jr. is especially bad) to lousy/lazy graphics, MLB playoff television on TBS is a chore to sit through.
