New York Yankees

During the fourth-inning of the AL Wild Card Game between the New York Yankees and Houston Astros, ESPN decided to bring Chris Archer in.

As fans of the New York Yankees watch their ace, Masahiro Tanaka, consistently struggle to find the plate against the Houston Astros in the AL Wild Card Game, they had to deal with the most ridiculous thing in the world.

During the fourth-inning ESPN decided to basically conduct an interview. Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer appeared on the pregame festivities with Karl Ravech and the boys. This wasn’t good enough though. He actually entered the booth of a playoff game between the Yanks and Astros.

Who the hell wants to hear from Chris Archer at this moment in time? This is a game where both fan-bases are cheering for their baseball lives.

This is the MLB Postseason.

Please ESPN, nobody wants to hear your booth essentially conduct an interview in the middle of a highly pressurized, hotly contested playoff game.
