Games We Play
This FOX coverage gets worse and worse. I'd heard of Erin Andrews before but not seen her 'work'...I guess long blonde hair gets you far in the side-line 'reporter' business cause it's certainly not her voice or speaking style.
Timmah with the great 'analysis' there too on whether it's better to be called a 'gamer' or a 'winner'.
 These are great games and the announcers are actually spoiling the experience for me.
How are these guys selected?
Why does baseball have such horrible national coverage?
Where are the Summerals, Costas. Alberts and Maddens of baseball?
For the record, Timmah has never said anything half way intelligent, and he stumbles over syntax and semantics like a first year ESL student.
I almost chimed in earlier to bitch about the booth talking about Perralta I can't spell my first name right Jhonny and his miracle hitting. They are as bad as a booth can get. To hell with 'em both! Last year for timmeh at least.
Buchholz looks like he should be working the Tilt-A-Whirl at a summer carnival in Indiana.
 You remember though back in the 80s Timmah was really good on the WOR Mets games..maybe there's just an expiry date for most announcers?
 Boat, I was interviewing this jazz-rock trio from Norway who all had burly beards and messy hair. I said they looked like the Red Sox..just got blank stares in return. Need to work on my interview technique I think.
4) Clay is so freaking scrubby.
The Duck Dynasty Sox.
 I remember that. He was good and brought good insight to the game. But he's either gotten lazy or reached his limit.
Busy week, night all.
 Amen to that.
 I thought he was a blow-hard back then, but he did make a lot more sense, in that he could actually speak in complete sentences.
 Maybe you should have gone for a Viking reference.
Oh, good. Pony is such a gamer.
Not caring about Buck and Timmy (they could be beagles on the farm). But enjoying this game. The name Scherzer comes from jester in German. Sox not enjoying his act.
Not to count chickens, but if this plays out; the Sox down two games facing Verlander in Detroit? There must be a lot of ugliness going on in basements in Southie right now.
I wonder if Johnny Gomes will have a comment on that one.
What a brutal pitch. Absolutely right down the pipe.
I think Hunter overran the ball. He could have made the catch.
 Yes. He could have caught that or at least touched it if he took the correct route.
If Hunter catches the ball and goes over the wall, is it still a homer?
 No, it's an out.
Notice to all American media professionals: It's pronounced "Weigh-hara." Get it right fer chrissake!
This changes everything. BOOOOOO
FFS, Prince! You got to catch that.
What a fucking waste of one of the best starting pitching performances. Head pounding.
Man, I hate it when those fucking people are happy. There, I said it.
It looked to me like Hunter took a bad route to the ball. But it also looked to me like I was on a couch 500 miles away from center field and should keep my opinions to myself.
Well that sucked.
