@brigidayoung @elantiq Pls reread my comment. Don O was NOT doing the Red Sox Rays game. He was doing the A's Tigers game! I was complaining about the lousy announcers at the Red Sox and comparing them to to great job Orsillo was doing at the A's Tigers game.

@RandyBrown1 Orsillo was not a blabber mouth yesterday; he was very crisp and a big improvement of what we were subjected to for RedSox/Rays game last night.
Couldn't agree more with you about the camera work and the constant pics of Joe Maddon. MLB must have gotten some cut rate pricing on this contract with TBS as they got cut rate announcers and camera men. However, I did tune in early yesterday looking for Redsox/Rays and heard the familiar voice of Don Orsillo who was doing a fabulous job for the Tigers/A's game. Don is our local Boston Red Sox announcer and really knows how to announce a game. Does excellent play by play, and not a lot of nonsensical commentary. I watched that game for a bit and their camera crew was significantly better than the one RedSox/Rays had. Night and day difference in both announcers and cameramen. No excuse for the shoddy handling of RedSox Rays games. MLB should be ashamed of what they put on the TV for RedSox Rays games.
Boring announcers, do not provide info such as who is at bat or details of plays. But I found the camerawork on the Sox Rays games the absolute WORST. Cameras do not follow the ball and zoom in to outfield. Do not follow base runners. Spent lot of time on Joe Maddon. It bothered me so much during game 1 that during game 2, I counted how many times they zoomed to Maddon: 10 times vs 3 for Farrell. I could care less about managers, but I do object to the poor coverage of plays. Did they hire amateurs for the cameras as well as the announcing?
