I knew I wasn't the only one who thought those graphics were horrible and that your eyes have to work harder for the game status

Yeah, well the problem is this: TBS is a rinky-dink operation, but they are the biggest network that is willing to bid on carrying the watered-down playoffs that so few people care about anymore. And even TBS isn't even carrying all the games, leaving MLB to figure out a way in-house to get the telecasts out to the viewers, when no commercial networks want them at all.

This is a far, far more serious crisis for Baseball, than the graphics.

So all the games won't be on FOX until the world series?

I have no problem with the graphics. Maybe you guys should go to the eye doctor.

Maybe you will luck out and something else will be on another channel, perhaps a "Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman" marathon or such.

Perhaps you could just ignore the graphics and watch the game. Or even better, turn off the TV and turn on ESPN Radio. All of us, and especially your psychoanalyst, anxiously wait to hear about how you handled this perplexing problem.

Well I guess the only solution is the put tape on the left hand corner of the TV screen and mute the sound since the TBS announcers suck.
