The Nats Broadcast Blows

The lovefest over there is sickening. They talk about the players like they've won three world series in a row and can't lose. Gio Gonzalez was asked the following question, "Gio, I here that you are really funny in the clubhouse and everyone loves you, what do you attribute that to?" I guess if you are a Nats fan, its all good but if you aren't, I doubt you could last til the 3rd inning without barfing.

None of them are as bad as Jim Hunter.

Carpenter and Hunter are pretty much the same guy.

I know a lot of people don't like Santangelo, but I've liked him the few times I've heard him (which is basically when they do that weird dual-broadcast thing). He's a bit of a homer for a color guy, but I like his enthusiasm.

Hunter would be annoying even if the Orioles were a perennial winning team.

And Carpenter wouldn't be?

They both are extreme shills for the home team. That's why they're there. I will say that at least the O's moved Hunter to the post-game show, where IMO he fits a little better.

    • Integrity?  I don't like Aaron Judge making us his ***** for 6+ years.  Let him hit it against someone else.  He's had a great, historic season, it's been plenty fine for MLB.  I like the MLB just fine, but they still can't overcome their issues when Judge is hitting 60+ homers and you have a guy in Anaheim doing stuff no one's ever seen before and they're having a hard time getting people out to the park to see it.  MLB is declining in popularity whether or not Judge hits 1, 2 or 13 homers this weekend.
    • You pitch to Judge if it makes sense in the game to pitch to Judge and you walk him if it makes sense to walk him. The Orioles are "essentially" out of contention, but you still play to win the games. If Judge comes up with a runner on second and 1 out late in a close game, I'm walking him to set up the double-play and go after a lesser hitter. But I'm not walking him to walk him. If he hits 62, 63 or whatever against us then congratulations to him....hopefully we win anyway. 
    • Thank goodness that PED using Ruth lost the record!   Baseball players cheat, they just do. Folks need to grow up about it. Lots of your favorite players growing up were probably cheating. Bonds was just better, better at it and better at baseball.
    • Yes.  I enjoyed the recaps and the video clips.   Thank you!
    • That's fine, I guess.  I dunno, I don't feel the need to re-hash the steroid arguments and who the "real" record holders are, or should be. Find it odd that he'd want that to come at our expense though.  You and I can disagree on Judge hitting a record breaking homer against us, I'm good with that as I recognize my stance as being petty, I also just don't care about being petty when it comes to the Yankees.  Petty is also their fans crying a f'ing river last week at the prospect of Michael Kay not calling the record breaking homer because they had a Friday night game on Apple TV and We DeSeRvE tO hAvE a GoOd AnNoUnCeR CalL tHiS!   That said, at least you qualified your statement with you're okay with him doing it against us as long as it's in a loss.  Which, being realistic, is what I'd hope for, too.
    • I think any late game situation where he comes up as the tying or winning run you walk him.
