    I think all the great announcers were radio announcers first.

    Wow....pitching, pitching, pitching....that's what we have seen. Unreal.....Would love to see some more offense, but you have to admire the studs that have been on the mound for all the teams.
    Looks rough for the Dodgers.....used their aces and have nothing to show for it.

    Thats because the real good radio announcers new how to be colorful and creative in their descriptions of the games in order to fill the voids of our imaginations, thus providing us with the missing pieces we needed in order to visualize our own personal images of that game being played.....do we really need TV announcers??

    some TV announcers make the game for me
    i loved hearing Dick Stockton do baseball the other night
    when Joe Buck and Tim McCarver are doing a fall baseball game, it just brings something to the game

    football, will watch Sunday Night Football just to listen to Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth

    in the same breath Mike Mayock and John Gruden almost make Thursday and Sunday night football unwatchable for me

    Always tune in for MLB this time of the year, and was excited with the Pirates reaching the playoffs. Still recall that dismal day in 92 when they lost in the last game to the Braves. Francisco Cabrera who?

    Only watched the occasional game during this season, but Detroit pitching seems awfully strong.

    That obstruction call was ridiculous. Even though it is the rule. The guy slides into the 3rd baseman knocking him over. And then the 3rd basemen is called for the obstruction the slider caused?

    I agree.....when I first saw it, I immediately thought it was interferance...but after looking at the replay..it was clear to me that if anyone was at fault it was the runner...the rule needs alittle looking over and restructuring

    plus Jim Joyce wasn't even looking! the runner was already stumbling
    plus Jim Joyce said Middlebrooks was "right on the chalk" and he wasn't

    someone summed it up real good
    no one would be up in arms(even Cardinal fans) if they didn't call obstruction. People would have just thought it was a play at 3rd and contact

    At Least Jim Joyce Had A Good Look At the Most Important Call of His Miserable Life Barstool Sports: Boston

    by the way
    doesn't excuse Farrell letting Workman hit with one out on the 9th with the game tied

    or Salty throwing down to 3rd in the 1st place, that is a little league play. he should never have thrown it
