Bad News For Fisting Fans

Chip “My father and grandfather were legends and the only reason I have a job in baseball is because of them” Caray and his long-time employer, TBS have “mutually” agreed to part ways after a post-season marred by miscalls, inaccuracies and a whole slew of balls fisted all over the field.

“Since the end of the 2009 MLB Playoffs, we’ve had several discussions with Chip Caray regarding 2010 and beyond. Both sides agree that now is the right time to move ahead on different paths,” the network said in a statement.

Make no mistake, this was NOT a mutual move, he got shit-canned. I can’t think of a single time Chip Caray has made a baseball game better. If his name was Chip Fister, he’d be managing a Home Depot right now.

That’s the way love goes.

The Sun Doesn’t Want You to See the NLDS

Due to normal solar activity, TBS’ airing of today’s Rockies/Phillies game could be disrupted. Apparently every February/March and September/October there are certain days where the position of the sun can interfere with TV satellite broadcasts.

The period of interference is supposed to occur during 4:10 pm – 5:10 pm EST. Any disruption of service should only last two-five minutes. Let’s hope this goes better than last year’s horrific Steve Harvey disaster.

I’m still not over that. Not very funny TBS.

TBS NOT VERY FUNNY

WHAT THE FUCK TBS! So glad you bid to get the playoffs on your podunky shit-ass channel. This is the biggest crock of shit ever. Because baseball fans would much prefer to catch up on Steve Harvey episodes that they probably missed.

FUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Joe Maddon Has a Crush on Sager

Courtesy of the folks over at Sox and Dawgs comes this video of Joe Maddon checking out Craig Sager and even blowing him a kiss as Sager walks by before last night’s game in his purple velvet and blue shoes ensemble. How gauche!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The one thing I love about Craig Sager is that thanks to him after every game he’s involved in you hear men obsessed with sports talking about fashion and what someone was wearing. He’s like a gift to all the girlfriends and wives who are forced to sit through sporting events that they don’t care about.

Also, I really enjoy that Sager knows seemingly nothing about baseball and all of his post-game interviews feature him asking bizarre questions that are at the most basic level. It almost seems like he is just being fed the questions by the producers and he has no idea even who he’s talking to. They should have just left him on the NBA beat where at least he knows what’s going on. Where’s Tom Verducci? Sure, he wasn’t great on TV, but at least he knows baseball…

TBS Tortures the Mets

As if their late season collapse wasn’t bad enough, TBS decided to rub some salt into the wounds of Mets fans with some of their billboards in Times Square. That’s because TBS decided to feature on their ads Mets slugger David Wright as an enticement to watch the playoffs. OOPS! Well, at least it was Josh Beckett with D-Wright up there as opposed to like Derek Jeter or something… However, if I were TBS I’d watch out for firebombs from angry Mets fans.
