Tyler Kepner on the one and only, Vin Scully.
[Picture by Bags]
Reading about Scully always makes me a little sad, partly because I know he won't be around much longer and when he goes there is no one around to replace him. With him will die the last of the truly great, classic play-by-play men. But also partly because he reminds me just how much greater he is than what the Yankees trot out every night in the booth. And to think that this organization used to employ Mel Allen...
Mel Allen was a hack compared with Red Barber or Vin Scully.
 Agreed! But compared to John Sterling...
3) Now you are getting perverse...
Its rather unfortunate that this recent biography of Vin is so poorly edited/written (and yes, I met the author, had him autograph it, paid retail, got 40 pages in, and felt ripped off)
