FOX Commentators for the World Series.

Recommended Posts

Alex Rodriguez, who was made to sit out a full year of baseball for taking steroids.

Pete Rose, who is banned from admission into the Hall of Fame for betting on sports while in the MLB.

Am I the only one who thinks that it was possible for FOX to find a big name player with a knowledge of the game who has not brought shame to his profession?

Sorry if this was discussed before, but I just found out about this when I tuned in to the game.

Controversy= ratings.

Funny I don't recall anyone complaining when Brian Roberts was on MLB channel, or Harold Reynolds for that matter.

They rank about 17 orders of magnitude on the fame and player quality scale than Arod and Rose. A lot of casual fans probably say, "Who?" when they hear Brian Roberts' name.

That said, I don't really mind seeing Arod on TV, but Rose is one incredibly strange looking guy. The attempts to hide the effects of aging are very scary.

I was talking about them "bringing shame" to their professions.

I can't stand Rose in any capacity but Arod seems just fine in his new role.

Arod is auditioning. He's probably going to try and be the MLB equivalent of Troy Aikman. Pete Rose just smells of something so bitter and spiteful it's painful to watch. He's a jackass too, which doesn't help.

Pete Rose is w quite possibly one of the most arrogant people I've ever had the displeasure to meet.

"Why would I tip you? Do you know who I am? I'm Pete Rose, the all time hit king! How dare you even ask for a tip when you had the honor to serve me food and bask in my presence!"

He probably tips in casino chips. I had an uncle once who would give me chips when he saw me during the Holidays. I thought he was cool, but in retrospect I suspect he also tipped and tried to settle bar tabs with them.

But more germane to the topic, I can't stand postseason broadcasts. First, it is a pain in the butt to watch most of them since I don't have cable. But the broadcasts themselves are insufferable. I hate crowd shots (unless it involves someone stuffing their face, getting jiggy with it, or a baby), celebrity/spouse/mom shots, dugout interviews with the manager or players, God Bless America, and random commentary by former players.

I do like blimp shots, bizarre experimental camera angles, and long stretches of simple insane frenzied crowd noise with no commentary.
