    no, i'm sure that's true. i was thinking about this after i posted that. they are probably 1 of 2 or 3 "other" broadcast teams that i've listened to this year, so i'm not used to the homerism of a broadcast that doesn't align with my own homerism. so the padres broadcast probably feels homerific to a non-padre fan, but i watch it and it feels "right". i'm sure its the same thing here. i just don't like analysts that can't look at a play that is fairly obvious on video and say "yup, he looks out to me"

    Benetti is the B team for espn national broadcast I think, he does the statcast broadcast with Petriello. He also does about every other sport for ESPN. Steve Stone is a crusty old color guy but really knows baseball. When things go bad he will get harsh. The Cubs pushed him out for it iirc.

    then it's stone i don't like. but again, probably just a matter of not being used to the broadcast

    I don't understand this, but then again I don't understand most things about the Mets.

    What don’t you understand? All the good players currently on the team are because of him, built some of the most successful teams they’ve had this century out of nothing with shitty ownership and only left because he had cancer.

    He's about to turn 73 and has the health issues you mentioned that have kept him from running the organization before. If he's just a figurehead who hires a GM and others who will actually make the decisions, that's fine. But if he's basically going to run the show again, the risk/reward of going with him over any number of other people seems like it wouldn't be in your favor.

    Mets should really hire Matt Klentak, dude's a genius, did you know he went to an Ivy AND played baseball there?

    If Bummer was available all year, Sox have 4 more wins likely. He hopefully ends the Ricky being a fucking idiot with his bullpen saga we’ve been dealing with for the last month

    Boone just said Higashioka will catch game 1 for Cole and the starting catcher will be a day to day decision. Higashioka is starting tonight for the second time in 3 days. What a miserable season for Sanchez.

    Rick Renteria strikes again!! Bases Loaded two outs and decides to bring in Carlos Fucking Rodon, who just got off the DL and to my knowledge has never pitched from the bullpen in his career.

    Makes total sense, White Sox go from up 4-1 to down 5-4 in hurry. Way to go RICKKKYYYYYY

    Might've been a great spot to pitch IDK Aaron Bummer, then let him finish the 8th before turning it over to Colome for the win. But no Ricky is a mental fucking midget who has to do the opposite of common sense. Can't wait to hear him explain this in the post game "My gut said Rodon"

    Correct

    Braves manager didn't go from nearly being fired to winning 3 straight divisions. He's still the same moron as before he just now has elite talent to overcome his short comings

    I just cannot understand bringing in Rodon there, that’s just batshit insane managing

    now the Sox are likely to go from 1 seed to 7 seed in a week. Unreal

    If you combine all major college and pro sports teams, I'd be shocked if more than 20% would get a positive approval rating.
