Interesting Full Draw. I’m going to say you’re probably 100% right. I was watching and listening casually and I’m sure you were watching more closely. Didn’t realize mistakes were being made. I honestly just enjoyed the broadcast more than the other playoff games I’ve seen.
FS1 and ESPN both fall over themselves talking up the team that is down in the series. They want it to appear to be more competitive than it really is. The announcers always pull for the underdog because the networks all want as many playoff games as they can get.
Sorry to hear that you guys couldn’t watch a MLB Playoff game. That is absolutely ridiculous. It shouldn’t take a magic wand or any special cable package just to watch an MLB Playoff game. You want more fans? Give people access to the sport at its highest level. It’s complete garbage and bad for MLB.
It’s funny when the Cubs were in the playoffs I found it painful to listen to the broadcast. Couldn’t stand Joe Buck or anyone on ESPN or FS1. Now I’m seeing the exact same complaint from Brewers fans regarding the announcers.
All of that complaining stops when Bob Costas is broadcasting. He still does a very nice job. Wish he did more playoff baseball.
