The Dodgers' win over the Cubs also brings an end to Dodger fans' suffering through the TBS television coverage. NLCS coverage, and World Series coverage, is on Fox. Sucks to be you, American League fans (who have to suffer through another round of TBS for the ALCS).
I found it odd that a network with the tagline "very funny" was showing the baseball games in the first place. It ended up becoming an appropriate motto, though, after listening to Dick Stockton reference "Hideki" Kuroda, or describe phantom check swings when bats would not leave shoulders. Tony Gwynn is always a fun listen, but I kept thinking I should be watching a basketball game when I heard Stockton's play-by-play.
But the worst part of TBS coverage, now a problem two years running, was the incessant barrage of frank tv promos. I mean, I get it. The guy does impressions. Why thrust him in front of us throughout the game, and then give him the floor for the entire seventh inning stretch?
If TBS really wanted to do it right, they should have had Frank Caliendo impersonate Dick Stockton and Tony Gwynn for the whole game. Think of the salaries saved! Think of the cross-promotional value!
Actually, come to think of it, did they ever do a camera shot of the announcing booth? Hmm...
