FWIW... According announcer's accounts on X/Twitter, Arnold and Hollander will be doing radio this weekend (best pairing that should stay in place) and Wagner will get TV duties w/ Broberts. Very interested to hear how Wagner does on TV bc he has been great on radio thus far.

A quick shout out to Roberts for perfectly cueing up Gunnars Homer yesterday.  He said Gunnar laid off a 3 0 pitch because he was looking for something middle-in to destroy.  Next pitch middle-in. Destroyed.

I really like Brian Roberts on the mike

He whiffed on a lot of his predictions but he nailed it when it counted, lol.

I like Wagner as number two, but Kevin be the man! I guess I'm so partial to Palmer and Ben that for others it's a hard climb. Palmer is in a class of his own. Brian is all right but he needs to slow down and talk a little less for me. Didn't have to use the mute button though.

I really really like BRob on the broadcast, he handles it kind of the way he played he's very well prepared, always relaying conversations he's had with players and coaches and his insights about Norby were interesting and candid, and he really tries to stick to baseball.  I think with more opportunity he'll get even better.

Loved him as a player, but Roberts is flat-out annoying with his over-the-top descriptions of mundane shit. It's also my opinion he went to the same school as Bordick.

BRob should get props for his preparation — has clearly researched the data/metrics and also with his questions to players/Hyde.  There were numerous times this weekend when he referenced both during game situations and I thought was additive to the broadcast.
