Every baseball producer and director should be fired immediately. Baseball on TV has become one long, tedious cliche.
To me, it's very obvious that the directors of their broadcasts are not baseball fans
I'd love to see a schematic diagram of how the defense is aligned
I figure they are after the marginal watcher - casual fans who might tune elsewhere if they aren't interested. Serious fans will watch in any case, but some folks need diversions such as the human angle to keep their attention while the game moves along slowly by 21st century instant gratification standards.
Even in football broadcasts, it seems like there are fewer Xs and Os nowadays than there were in the early days of John Madden or whoever drawing on the screen with his magic pen. I guess the emotional interest does trump the tactical one, but I always reckoned that the "thinking-fan's" diagrams & such actually drew people into watching football. No more, perhaps.
Oh, sure, there's nothing evil at all about montages. It's just that they reflect a visual style that has crept into every kind of video narrative.
Including, God help us, weddings and memorial services. JUST STOP IT. STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT.
I remember they abandoned the "home plate" camera installed in the ground just in front of home plate incredibly quickly.
