Thoughts on Kevin Brown?

I find Brown to be boring.  He only talks about the game going on and stats.  I like a few stories and anecdotal information, the way Palmer does it.  Lots of dead air between Hunter and Brown.  Let’s face it these games are boring and I don’t care that the Seattle second baseman takes a 15% longer lead on the bases than the average player and that kind of thing. 

Vin Scully had a few interesting stories.

Thoughts on Kevin Brown? I think he could hold down the 4th or 5th starter spot for this season. Would be a good influence on some of the younger pitchers. Sign him up!

Have you guys heard Eric Nadel?  He's the Rangers radio broadcaster.  

He is 

Awesome

Magical

Awesome

Zealous

Interesting

Not like any other broadcaster

GREAT!!!!

AMAZING.  Eric Nadel is just. A. MAZE.  ING.  

Tony should just turn this to Rangershangout.com and we should all bask in the glow of Eric Nadel's words every day.  We'd be better humans for it.

Dudes that talk to much make me change the channel, on the other hand I love listening to Costas and Kaat.

I mean...he’s a broadcaster. It’s kind of his job.

Yes but it’s not there job to talk right over the action on the field. I was listening to the Mariner broadcast of game two and it was Unbearable. They had 3 guys in the booth and it was like listening to 1000 cats being electrocuted.

Are you talking about TV or radio?  Big difference.

TV it was Ryan rowland smith, Dan Wilson and Mike Blowers. I had to mute it.

Ok. 

There is a big difference between radio and TV. I want my radio play by play to be descriptive. On TV it is not the same. 

Broadcasters like Scully and Summeral had many strengths. Sometimes it was just be quiet or limit their words. We can see the moment unlike radio.

I’m warming to Brown. He’s certainly a different taste – lacks Jim’s enthusiasm and connection, obviously, but that’s been cultivated over two+ decades – but it’s growing to become a pleasing one. A great voice to listen to when lazing on the deck in the backyard on a Sunday afternoon. And the more I listen to him, a pretty good one for the other days/times of the week.

I’ll be interested to see (hear?) how he evolves over the course of his tenure here. Promising thus far.

Brown had a hilarious exchange with Dave Johnson tonight. 

In the top of the 4th he said if Tom Emanski ever makes another instructional video this game will not be used. Then Dave Johnson said it’s always good to see Fred McGriff. Then Brown said you too Dave Johnson could be apart of the back to back to back......

So, I’ve been listening to Brown when he’s broadcasting while I’m driving.    My biggest problem with him is that he sounds, well, homogenized.    Very much like a national broadcaster who is completely dispassionate about who wins or loses.    At the same time, he’s fundamentally sound in other areas.    He describes the action and the setting well, he makes good use of statistical information, and he does a good job of interacting with his color man.    

I think mostly what he needs is more time, to develop a relationship with the team, the city and its fans and project that in his broadcasting.     

Just needs a few lessons...

    • Andrew Luck was dealing with chronic pain.  Chris Davis is injured and Luck is leaving zero guaranteed money on the table. NFL contracts are not guaranteed.
    • I was thinking about this today. How Chris's image would improve if he retired with a buyout agreement favorable to both parties.  Otherwise the general feeling of most people is he is stealing money from the Orioles who have made him a multi-millionaire. Hopefully his wife can get through to him and suggest at the end of the season he retire. I know this is unlikely with Scott Boras as his agent. Maybe Chris can explain to him his frustration with the game and his declining batting skills have caused him to make this decision.
    • This guy is on fire.....I'm wondering if the guys that said he'd be Nontendered this offseason are ready to eat crow?? C'mon gents, we know who you are!
    • I thought I read something about 80 million from MASN a while back. Even with Davis, Cobb, and Trumbo contracts the Os are making a pretty hefty profit just on the national and MASN deals.   So even if the number 0nly 110-120 million in revenue between the 2 deals ...the payroll is only 72 million and certain to ge less next year. A 40 million surplus times 2
    • When I lived in L.A. and often went down the block to Mexican taco and burrito vans for dinner, cabeza was one of my favorites.
    • I was at the Shorebirds vs my hometown Hagerstown Suns where 3,106 showed up for a Low A baseball doubleheader featuring a Mike Mussina bobble head for the first 1,000 fans (unfortunately I was in the 2,106 who didn’t get one).  Of course game one also had Grayson Rodriquez pitching to Adley Rutchman.  I will stick to attendance in this thread and say that the orange and black dominated the crowd in this Nationals affiliate’s park.   Not sure how long the rebuild will take but there is definitely some excitement for the future out here in the hinterlands.
