Is ESPN's Postseason Graphic the Worst Illustration of All-Time?

When I saw this, i thought it was something being shared that was drawn by some high school kid in Alaska or something. Nope, this is just what ESPN went with to hype up the 2020 MLB Postseason.

There's so much going on here, I don't even really know where to start. I guess we'll go with Blake Snell.

Like … what? If I was Snell and saw this shit shared by ESPN, I'd have my agent on the phone with somebody immediately. It's not like this was sent out by some rinky dink operation.

Then there's whatever in the world is going on with George Springer.

What the hell is going on around his hand? I like to pretend that rather than this graphic just being genrally terrible, it's an asterisk for Houston cheating its way to a World Series with no punishment.

But at least Springer's illustration looks like him. Fernando Tatis Jr. looks like he's higher than a Georgia pine and Mookie Betts looks like the failed Cristiano Ronaldo bust.

And then you have the issue that five teams were left off entirely, which I don't really care about because mine is on there, but I understand other people being upset about being snubbed. The whole thing is just a mess.

This entire graphic gave me very Bleacher Report 2019 Women's World Cup vibes. Never forget those guys put Michael Scott and Iron man side by side with the USWNT.
