A-Gon? Does anyone in LA really call Gonzalez that?
 
2013-10-11 09:20:20 PM
anyone else getting extremely choppy tbs broadcast with occasional artifacting on screen? Comcast ann arbor.. Been going since before the pregame... Doesnt occur on local ads, and a friend in houston with time warner says its ocuring there too., but i dont see any other chatter

TBS announcers annoy.
 
2013-10-11 09:26:05 PM
Is there a non first row stream? I'm on a mac and can't use their streaming app.
 
2013-10-11 09:26:46 PM
looks like the non HD TBs broadcastis farked nationwide..
 
2013-10-11 09:26:48 PM
Kelly looks good getting ahead of hitters, then he's all over the place.  Molina's getting a workout.

Not tonight, but the other day it happened quite a bit.

I've had a few sporadic issues with TBS on Comcast in the Baltimore area throughout the playoffs. Amazingly, it's the least annoying thing about their coverage

Get Kelly out of there, and put in Miller.

Google "vipbox."  One of their streams is only a couple seconds behind my TV feed.

..and Uribe continues his inexplicable postseason..
 
2013-10-11 09:34:26 PM
After throwing in every possible direction, Kelly throws right down the nose three times straight and coughs up two runs. WTF.

He's like Delmon Young, but without the anti-Semitism
 
2013-10-11 09:43:55 PM
55 pitches for Kelly through 3.
 
2013-10-11 09:46:05 PM
Beltran homer coming up........
 
2013-10-11 09:48:13 PM
Clutch
 
2013-10-11 09:48:25 PM
Oh yeah Beltran!  Missed a homer by a foot, but I'll take it!
 
2013-10-11 09:48:35 PM
the broadcast here is smooth as silk on the hd, but im. On the other side of the poker room from their one hd display. All the analogs are crapped.
 
2013-10-11 09:48:44 PM
I was THAT CLOSE to a wizard hat!
 
2013-10-11 09:48:52 PM
Beltran!  Wooo!

Not quite but it'll do :D

Glad as I am that Ethier's back in the lineup, Schumaker would have probably made that play.
 
2013-10-11 09:56:37 PM
"I don't want to see the spin on the ball" is..... I don't even have words for how bizarre that is
 
2013-10-11 09:56:59 PM
Who is the dimwitted color commentator for TBS?  Sounds like Tim McCarver, which would explain the lack of brain cells.

But the bat.....

Shoepisser is already on record saying he would step down for Vin if LA makes the show.  (citation investigation).  Anyway, just one more, for all of us.  Just one more. It can happen.

All the TBS announcers have been horrible.  Better than Buck and McCarver, but that's not saying much.

All the more reason for the Dodgers to win.. because you KNOW what you're gonna get if the Cardinals make it to another World Series on Fox

the crew is generally Ernie Johnson, Ron Darling and Cal Ripkin, Jr

Have to disagree - Buck is worse than everybody.

My name is Buck and I'm full of suck.
 
2013-10-11 10:22:48 PM
Joe Buck isn't that bad at all. His haters are just more vocal than the people who think he's good. Haters gonna hate.

I bet you believe in leprechauns and unicorns, too

NetOwl: Don Mattingly is good people


Why the fark do people talk like this?
 
2013-10-11 10:25:20 PM
I just wish the internet feed had the rights to the broadcast view.  The single camera view doesn't work, the mosaic doesn't sync right, and the "quad view" thinks what I really want to see the whole game is Mattingly and Matheney systematically touching their faces in a rapid sequence.
 
2013-10-11 10:26:02 PM
Or, and I'm just spitballing here, maybe let me listen to Shannon instead of TBS and give me a functional "Pause" button so I can sync it my dam self.

He's great if monotone average announcers are your thing. That, or you misspelled Jack Buck.

I guess the suits at Fox believe in leprechauns and unicorns. If he's really that bad, why does he get all the big games?
 
2013-10-11 10:28:08 PM
..that's not to say i think Buck is the worst in the world. I'd take 20 Joe Bucks over 1 Hawk Harrelson.

/possibly 3 Tim McCarvers

Okay, it would be nice if he showed more emotion, but he doesn't annoy me.

He does a lot better at announcing football than he does baseball.

He's got pictures of Rupert Murdoch in drag as blackmail

/so does Seth McFarlane

It's still the same base problem though.  With baseball (especially covering games with the Cards) his monotone is understandable to avoid homerism.  He just doesn't have the ability to really bring out the emotion in a game.
 
2013-10-11 10:34:54 PM
I must not be getting the TBS announcers on my feed, I got a stream from BT Sport 1 Live, and there's only two announcers... one of them's named 'Gary'.  So I'm lost.
