With the exception of Kenny Albert there's not much to look forward to this season on Fox.
Albert should move to NBC. They appreciate his talent much more over there. Fox doesn't even bother to give him a good analyst, yet he's demoted in favor of Burkhardt, who sounds too much like he doesn't want to make a mistake.
And please. The minute I notice Kutcher is doing a game I want to watch, I'll switch off Fox forever.

@MattGalvin I would think we'd have Karros in west coast games. More probably it'll be Santangelo.

Fairly more interesting teams to listen to here at CBS. I'm particularly looking forward to listening to Harlan and Gannon, I know it'll be a thrill.

The talent at FOX is very diluted, what they consider A and B teams is a joke.

@jpk0721 There was a post in AA some time ago about Edwards twitting to McGuirre "Shut up Pierre" with that picture. So I took the pic and added the text.
No way in heck I'm a Bruins fan. I like Edwards though

Yeah , McGuirre might be well prepared, be passionate about the game and all that, but he just can't stop talking whenever he sees a chance, even taking over from the broadcasters during a game, like he did in a women's medal game during the sochi olympics. It's just that: he talks way too much. And the NBC networks is not doing us any favours by feeding us with him every single play off game. We don't need that.
@LegendOfVinnyT John Forslund is the guy for the west coast teams, he knows them inside and out. He should be the one.

Wow, I'm surprised someone caught it, seeing Caray barely raises his voice when the Braves are not doing something.

@tonyc I would as well. Seems that Nantz and Simms won't be doing double duty, since Eagle and Fouts were promoted for this season, they will call the Sunday games that would be assigned for Nantz and Simms.

I was fortunate enough to find a stream with the ESPN international tv feed. I started watching the game by the 4th inning and Gary Thorne and Rick Sutcliffe barely mentioned Jeter until the end of the game. By the 7th inning they presented a graphic and some video to honor Gwynn and they also presented a graphic with the names of Zimmer, Coleman, Welch, Kiner, Fregosi, and after Thorne read those names and mentioned some of their achievements, they headed back to the game, but Sutcliffe said "wait a minute, put that list back on" and proceeded to mention some other achievements of the individuals listed.
It's clear that FOX only cares about the business of baseball, not about the sport itself. They do not even bother to assemble good broadcasting teams. I hope that whatever little talent they have left (hard to think of anyone besides Kenny Albert, who I imagine is not very pleased to work there anymore) migrates to CBS or NBC soon.

@gordonsolie1 Add to that announcers mumbling all through the game like they were in a funeral and you have a recipe for falling asleep in no time.

Man, if team Mexico is capable of achieving any level of success that is superior to what they have accomplished in past tournaments, the media frenzy will be unbearable. It would be "La Selección" here there and everywhere every day every hour. The obnoxious bald guy who calls games for the main Mexican network would appear even in the soup. So far they've had nothing to sell (the media) yet everybody in Mexico loves the team. What if El Tri really succeeds?

As lame as it gets.
I understand the Kings visited Dodger Stadium when they won the Cup two or three seasons ago. Why didn't they show Mr Scully the Stanley Cup then?

Never a dull moment indeed ...
Nobody even reacted.
I enjoyed those games so much, the match against Mexico and the one against Germany. He also did a great job in the Final. And JP Dellacera and Tommy Smith were a lot of fun too. They called a game between two African teams that was defined in overtime or whatever it's called, a striker scored a hat trick and I still remember the call by Dellacamera, such a thrill!

I almost jumped out of my seat when I read JP Dellacamera's name, only to fall to the floor reading he's on radio.

When he says he's "full time NBC" he really means it, because the network sends him to Every Single Game during the play offs.

The first ever NHL game I watched was on FOX. I don't remember the teams or the score, I only remember it was Kenny Albert and Craig Simpson calling the game, I was hooked immediately. John Kelly, another great pbp man. Great analysts like Micheletti. Davidson I never really liked, later I noticed Matt Millen was the same style. ESPN had a great pbp team too: Thorne, Levy, Strader, Ryan. They would later add JP Dellacamera and even Jack Edwards. They always had different and talented analysts for their play off coverage, unlike NBCSN who wants to feed us Pierre McGuire in every game they can.

WOW Melrose got a lot older from 2008 to 2010! I'd figure he'd be the kind of guy to dye his hair. Levy is a great play by play man, I enjoyed his calls more than those of Thorne's. It was a lot of fun when he did play off games with Pang too.

What would NBC do without McGuire if he's hired by any team? NBC would have no one left to send to the games they cover.

This is good news. No disrespect for Dave Strader, but Kenny Albert works hard, and calls the game in a concise and emotive way, only problem is he lets his partners get too much in the way. Joe Micheletti is good too, I enjoyed his work with Howie Rose when they were with bad Islanders teams. I hope he does not start calling each goal like it's the Stanley Cup winner. Englom, well ... The best of all that: No Pierre McGuire for the West series!

@jplsd44 Edwards was a very good announcer when he called NHL play off series for ESPN. I guess he's more free to be himself working for Boston.

Years ago ESPN also used to shuffle their announcers all over the place. However they had a habit of choosing several very good analysts for their series, as opposed to the NBC networks who want to feed us that McGuire guy every day
