    TBS: Is the crowd not miked?

    Is it just me, or is the crowd not miked at ALL?

    In none of these games, can I feel the electricity of postseason baseball.

    I don't know about that, but the stupid little half pitch tracker was annoying as all get out.

    The Twins crowd seems louder, so maybe they got the place miked up.

    Seemingly, they had no mikes in Citizens Bank Park.

    They have even done the same thing with other sports. I remember games from years ago where the announcers seemingly had to shout, in order to be heard over the crowd. Not the case anymore.

    It was laughable at how bad the pitch tracker was. It was the most in-accuarte Ive ever seen one

    I thought all of the sound was off. It sounded really tinny to me, and every time a ball was hit, it sounded like a broken bat.

    I noticed this too. Had my surround sound on and it sounded like crap--and you're right, every hit ball sounded like a broken bat.

    I think the TBS broadcasts are just bad in general. They're bad in the regular season, and apparently no improvements or changes were made for the postseason.

    Too much so. I could hardly hear Marty, Jim, and the Cowboy at times.

    Crowd didn't really seem to exist.

    I heard the atmosphere was awesome. Wish I had been there. Listening to the radio on my way home from work, the crowd was really loud.
