The MLB playoffs are here, and that means more eyes than ever are on baseball broadcasts. You'd expect TV networks to be on top of their game at this point, but that was clearly not the case for TBS during their broadcast of the ALDS Game 1 matchup between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays.

Just check out this ridiculous blunder, where they had no idea which Rays player they were showing on camera.

Rays first baseman Ji-Man Choi has been an absolute menace against Yankees ace Gerrit Cole over his career, so it makes sense to want to showcase that — especially with Choi batting cleanup on Monday.

Unfortunately, that's not the Korean infield Choi they're showing on camera. That is Japanese utility man Yoshi Tsutsugo, who was not even in the lineup yesterday, and who hasn't played since Game 1 of the Wild Card series.

This is a bad look for TBS, and they've gotta clean up these mistakes before Game 2 on Tuesday.
