Never want to see anyone lose their job, but this was way overdue. Hunter was just too much of a cheerleader for my tastes. I always got a kick out of his postgame interviews with Buck after road games. Hunter would act like a hyper puppy dog and Buck would be clearly annoyed by it😂

More like an insincere Top-40 DJ spinning all the hits.

I thought Bordick was worse than Hunter. I dont know how he kept his job for 9 years.

I think Bordick improved over the years and I like that he has been critical more in recent years but I agree he wasn’t good overall.

I did like his defensive perspective on things though.

I thought he was better his first two years then started to rely on catch phrases and homer-isms the longer his tenure went, but I'll admit to not watching many of his broadcasts the last 3 years.

The Hunter-Bordick team was deadly.  The mute button one of the great inventions.

I can think of an Oriole announcer who, it always seemed to me, would lose all enthusiasm any time the Orioles fell behind in a game.

If Hunter's career with the Orioles lasted 24 years, that means he was there for the entirety of the 14-year streak from 1998 through 2011 when the Orioles finished with a less than .500 winning percentage every single year.

And Hunter maintained his enthusiasm throughout that whole period.

That's what I'll remember about him.

No matter what the Orioles did. You were in for a rough night with that tandem.
