Yankees fans need to listen to one of their most hated before and after Game 2 of the ALDS against the Cleveland Guardians.

The broadcast crew for the New York Yankees against the Cleveland Guardians ALDS series isn’t bad at all. Bob Costas is on the play-by-play, and Ron Darling is the color commentator. No one has any complaints there.

TBS had to ruin its goodwill with Yankees fans, though, when a guest commentator was announced for the pre- and post-game. Former Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa.

Correa was a member of the Astros team that was accused — and found guilty — of using improper means to steal signs and relay the information in real-time to batters en route to a World Series win. Fans speculate that Jose Altuve’s epic walk-off home run against Aroldis Chapman (which sent the Astros to the World Series in 2019) included some foul play, too.

Yankees fans will never get over Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal

It’s bad enough that Yankees fans had to suffer through listening to Carlos Beltran — also complicit in the sign-stealing scandal — this year on YES Network. Not only was he part of the scandal, but he was just… bad on the mic.

Now they have to listen to Correa commentate on a game he has no legit tie to before and after the game.

Yankees fans threw a fit and some thanked the heavens that they have YES Network for pre- and postgame coverage.

It’ll be extremely awkward if TBS decides to take him further and bring him back for the ALCS, where the Astros and Yankees may meet.
