He has to be devastated.

He went from basically calling every game to this. 

Hunter's performance, or lack thereof, was responsible.  He should look in the mirror.  And for a guy who bizarrely blamed umpires for their faults over two decades, and also suggested poorly performing umpires should be sent to the minors, it is poetic justice that he has been benched as well.

I feel a bit sorry for him, but he’s had a 23-year run and given the long-time general opinion of his TV play by play, I’m glad the team is finally trying someone else.

I feel bad for Hunter as a person getting such a demotion, but as a viewer/listener I’m really glad they made this change. His enthusiasm was admirable but often ill-advised, like the little kid sitting next to you that freaks out over a late solo home run in a lopsided blowout loss. I swear you could almost hear Palmer rolling his eyes sometimes when they shared the booth.

He will get a job somewhere else after this year. He had announced college basketball also.He was told late about all the changes.

Hunter, who has been with the team since 1997 and last year served as the lead radio announcer and backup television broadcaster, is being moved to a new role with the broadcast. He declined to comment on the change.

Joe Angel chiding Hunter over using such hyperbole as "three game hitting streak" was one of my favorite broadcast moments of recent Orioles history .

Also you might see a little more positivity and more upbeat about the rebuild this year.Not Palmer and Thorne but the others promoting the spring camp and how well everyone  feels and how great the camp is this year with Hyde.Want this spin to get out to the average fan.

Seems organization has a history of doing this stuff last minute. They did it with Reghi years ago.

Hunter stopped saying it also after that.

Roy is the biggest Brooks fan their is.

He said with the caveat of still bleeding Orange and Black.  Palmer's with this team every year.  Brooks hasn't been.  And that's ok, it's not a slam on Brooks. But Palmer's ties to the organization as it stands currently and for the past 10-15 years is what Roy meant, IMO.

Didn’t say it was a slam. Thought it may have been an oversight. And I didn’t know you had to be with the team every day to bleed black and orange.

Too much time away from the team and the orange shifts into ochre.

Hey, I just realized.... Are you trying to say you didn’t notice I hadn’t been posting as much because no one cares?

 Well, that’s just hurtful.
