I am listening to him right now and within the last 2 innings he called what happened before it happened. Example -Nate needs to look for a curve down and in. Next pitch -curve down and in and Nate struck out.. That comes with time and maybe Hatty will get there, especially if the A's keep bringing him back for 20 games each season. Looks like he will be the guy to replace Ray -hopefully when Ray decides it's time to retire.

Why settle for "OK" when you already have "great" ?
Bring Ray back. He is the ultimate professional and is so much better that Hatty.
I am listening to him right now on the radio for the A's radio only day game against the Blue Jays. The more I listen to him the more upset I get that the A's are benching him for Hatty on TV games. Bring him back !
Robert, we actually agreed on 90% of what we both wrote. You wrote "I like Hatteberg as a sub". I wrote" Use him as a pinch hitter" which if you really know your baseball then you know that a sub is a pinch hitter and a pinch hitter is a sub.
I've never watched judge judy ....I'm too busy watching or listening to the A's games. I wish Hatty the best. Get a kick out of the new commercial with him and I was at games 18,19,and yes 20 when Hatty got the best walk off homer of his career.
I try to focus on what people have in common rather than their differences.

Robert, I hear ya about hitting the mute button when the ads come on, but I am glad that the A's decided to mute Hatty and bring Ray back. Maybe Hatty can be used like Money Ball when he was in the A's 20th consecutive win---a pinch hitter.
Is Hatty's 20 game broadcasting job a reflection on the A's 20 game record breaking wins ? Who do you thin was calling those games ? Answer: Ray Fosse.
After the 20 games are up, get Ray back in the booth, got it ?
Why bring Hatty into A's broadcasting ? Money ball answer..."because he can get on base" . But this is broadcasting and, if anything, maybe they could start him on the radio side to see what he has.
Bring back Fosse to the booth. He is one of the best in the business. MR Bean please trade Hatty to radio ans get Fosse back in return.
Get Fosse back today. He was a true catcher and catchers make great color commentary's. Hatty never made it as a catcher. He can't possibly think he can match Fosse's insight, especially about the pitchers.
Come on Oakland - do the right thing and bring Ray back.
