The LDS on TBS have been somewhat of a disaster. The only thing worse than the production of the games are the shows advertised in between innings. We decided to put our money where our mouths are (which is gross if you think about it) and came up with our own baseball themed TBS show ideas.
Cuban Mistletoe Crisis
Premise: Oh no! It’s almost Christmas, but Yoenis Cespedes and his countrymen Yasiel Puig, Jose Fernandez, Jose Dariel Abreu, and Jorge Soler don’t have any mistletoe to hang up at their Christmas dinner.
Pitch: The rise of Cuban players has been one of the biggest stories in baseball this year. And everyone loves Christmas!
Mike Trout Highlights
Premise: Baseball Jesus just does things while we watch.
Pitch: Would instantly be the best show on television.
Spelling Xander Bogaerts
Premise: The top 10 finishers in last year’s National Spelling Bee have to spell baseball’s unspellable names.
“Can you use that in a sentence?”
“Sure. I went to the grocery store and was promptly robbed by a cross-faded Jarrod Saltalamacchia”
Pitch: Who doesn’t want to watch 10 Indian kids disappoint their parents while Adeiny Hechavarria and Matt Tuiasosopo laugh at them?
House Hunters Oakland
Premise: Billy Beane and his fat assistant Jonah Hill search the Oakland area for a brand new home for all their kids to live and play in.
Pitch: Housing shows are extremely popular and the Athletics have a strong fan base in the fall.
Live Feed of Nolan Ryan’s Sad Face
Premise: It’s a drama. It’s depressing and hard to watch.
Pitch: It’s better than whatever TBS has to offer.
