TBS is having a hard time this October

Chip Caray has taken the brunt of the criticism (not just from me, I might add) but the entire TBS playoff package has not been running smoothly.

Aside from having the overdramatizing Caray in the booth, the network's pre- and post-game shows have been incredibly bland, thanks to the boring duo of Dennis Eckersley and Cal Ripken. Ernie Johnson is one of the best in the business and Harold Reynolds is one of the few analysts that actually analyzes the games anymore, but it's been hard for them to carry the other two.

And tonight technical difficulties experienced by TBS kept fans in the dark for the first inning of play at Tropicana Field.

As our friend Bob Glauber of Newsday would say, "Oy."
