Everything is Up-to-Date in Kansas City


I’ve found myself watching Met games more often this season because I enjoy the company of their announcing team, especially Keith Hernandez. Ron Darling and Mex are smart, cultured guys as well as good baseball men. I don’t always enjoy the company of the Yankee announcers but I really like watching a game when David Cone is in the booth. (He’d be a scream paired with Mex, wouldn’t he?) He’s funny, has a student’s knowledge of baseball history, and is keen on the modern analytical part of the game, too.

Cone is what I liked most about last night’s game. Oh yeah, it helped that Brian McCann finally got a big hit, Chase Whitley pitched 7 innings and that the Yanks won, 4-2, but Cone is why I didn’t flip the channel.

Agreed about the Mets' booth. And yes, the two of them would be a romp.

Except for Cone and sometimes Leiter the Yankee announcing is competent but bland. And we can really do without that third inning break for Meredith. She seems like a nice kid but forcing her into the telecast then is unnecessary. And don't start me on the radio. Every word is brought to you buy someone. And when the dialog gets through it is John and Suzyn.
