TBS MLB Postseason Ad Features David Wright Of The Mets. Oops.
MLB, Dumbass

TBS Sticks It To New York

Occasionally, when you have to get an ad up promoting the playoffs of a sport before the end of the season, you have to take a guess as to who in fact is going to make it.

TBS seems to do this every year.....and fail miserably.

At right is the giant current TBS postseason sign hanging on 7th Avenue in downtown New York. You may notice it features David Wright of the two time defending champions of late season implosions - the New York Mets. Awkward.

But what makes the poster even better is that while it has the embarrassing image of Wright up there, it also features Josh Beckett of the obviously much hated Boston Red Sox.

I'm not sure what else TBS could have done to mock New York, other than maybe having a giant sign up that said "The Big Apple Sucks."

And, as I mentioned, this isn't the first time TBS botched up these postseason posters. Last year they featured the Braves on one of these signs that they put up in late August.

The Braves, of course, were no where close to getting into the postseason.

Anyway, keep up the great work TBS. Maybe next year you can show the Pirates some love on your postseason ads.
