It feels kind of nit-picky, but there were a couple of cringe-worthy moments on MLBN last night that had me shaking my head.
First, the production value is definitely
below ESPNs. Somebody behind the camera there needs to explain to these guys how microphones work and why it's not a good idea to talk over eachother and INCREASE THE VOLUME OF YOUR VOICE because someone else is talking.
Secondly, you can tell a few of these guys aren't quite 100% comfortable in front of the camera yet. Amsinger was actually quite strong here, saving a few of these guys a handful of times last night when things just got.... awkward... The number of "ums" and "ahhh" that came out of Reynold's mouth surprised me with his experience, although it wasn't as bad as Mitch. This will likely get fixed quickly, but it definitely stood out to me last night. It's quite easy to pick which parts of the program are prompted and which are supposed to be "off the cuff".
Again, this is kind of nit-picky, and easily worth putting up with due to the better content. I look forward to seeing how this program polishes up. With a couple of neat "idea" type segments and a bit more production value this program will continue to be head and shoulders above anything on ESPN.
