Verizon picture quality TBS

While watching the Red Sox get beat up bad by the Rays the past two days, I can’t help but notice how absolutely awful the (standard def) picture quality is with Verizon FIOS (viewed on a 42″ Westinghouse LCD).  Most of the time I’m only slightly bothered by the bad quality, but for whatever reason (maybe it’s TBS?) the artifacts from an overcompressed picture are just off the scale.  Unfortunately it’s not being broadcast OTA so I can’t compare.

Some of the later games seemed better. Still the quality isn’t anywhere near what “digital” quality should be.
