Agreed, especially if you listen to Sterling and Waldman flub their way through Yankees games.

Been awhile since I checked in on this thread. So let me just GO RANGERS!!!! Seven games up on the Angels with one to go for the sweep in Anahiem. I feel another World Series visit in our future.

Yes it does suck. Haven't been able to listen to him since '97 when I left. I used to live on the same street as him in Menomonee Falls. Not a stalker; just saying as I'd see him driving by occasionaly .

Bernie is being very quiet in his own thread. Probably doesn't want to jinx the crew...

Man, I am starting to lose hope for this season. Consistency is such a huge issue with them this year.

Joe said we need to make up a game a week... it's possible, but man with our schedule it'll be rough.

Fortunately, the D-Backs are doing well (with the exception of last night and so far tonight) so at least I will have one team to go for in October. But I would trade this one for the Rays to be in it.

I listen to the dude calling the Tigers game and pretend it's Harwell. No offense to those guys, but we are not all baseball idiots who need a continual lesson in pitching. Sometimes I just want them to shut up and call the game.

I have not heard Uecker call a game, but I have seen him on TV.

I used to go to bed each night listening to Earnie call the games. I learned to love radio baseball listening to the those great Tigers teams of the 70's, and Earnie.
