Palmer Esque

Recommended Posts

Say what you want about Palmer, but he's a legitimate know-it-all.

I appreciate that even more when he's replaced by a guy who works way too hard every AB to try to sound like he is.

Speak for yourself. I need an analyst to remind me that the home team bats in the bottom of the inning. Without Buck I might lose track of which infielder is the second baseman and which is the shortstop.

Doesn't baseball a need a John Madden?

Well, the Dynamic Duo asked AM a lot of nothing questions... let's see if they do any better after the commercial...

Nope, they managed to do worse...

  • How about expanded rosters in Apr instead of Sept?
  • How about the crazy schedule?
  • This weekend in CHI, neither team is at home, what's up with that?
  • With Olson up, are there any other P's at AAA who you're watching?

That may be the lamest so-called interview of a GM I ever heard...

I understand what you mean about Buck, but I'd rather have him or even OldFan#5 calling the game instead of Hunter...he hasnt called many games lately has he?

Was Hernandez running on contact? Ahh, I can't watch the game until the Nats are done. Good job by Roberts to get those guys in scoring position, and way to go to the 2-3 hitters to bring 'em home.

Hernandez was running on contact, because it was 2 out.

Weaver nearly drills Huff.

Different jobs:

  • Thorne or Hunter are the play-by-play guys. Their job is to describe what's going on.
  • Palmer and ole Buckaroo are color guys. Their job is to explain what it means, tell you what to look for, etc.

Thorne is better than Hunter, except for goofing up names.

Palmer is way, way, way better than Buck.

Both of these just my opinion, of course...

I predict with certainty that, with DCab pitching tomorrow, Buck will say that DCab has "more moving parts" just because he's tall. He says it every time, usually more than once. And it's not true. DCab has exactly the same number of moving parts. But I guarantee he'll say it anyway. Anybody wanna bet?

Thanks for the clarification.: Thats what happens when you have a few too many and try to make witty posts on a message board.:) But what I meant to say was, I would rather have Thorne and Martinez as opposed to Hunter drowning out whatever analysis Palmer has to give.
