You are an idiot. You are bordering perilously close to the Billy Packer-esque level of forcing me mute your call of a game and listen to it via another medium. Do you get that? I would rather endure a 5 second delay between action and verse simply to avoid listening to you spout banal generalities of baseball knowledge and references to your far from stellar playing career.
You and your overly dramatic co-host spent far too much time going over the minutae of Manny Ramirez’ home run walk/trot. So he walked halfway up the baseline. That was the biggest hit of his career in an emotional and tense situation. Perhaps it was a little disrespectful, but given the moment, I won’t fault a guy for acting like a kid on a playground.
In the Cubs series, you spent a couple of minutes talking about the baserunning acumen/baseball knowledge of Kerry Wood because he got a great jump off of second on a possibly catchable single and scored. Of course, in all of your glowing platitudes, you failed to mention that there were two outs and anyone other than an Oakland A’s player would have managed to leave on contact and score.
Those are but two examples of how I loathe you. Spill your coffee tonight while you befoul yet another broadcast of my beloved Cubs. Spill it, electrocute yourself, and spend the remainder of the series not calling games from the comfort of an acute care facility.
