Listen, Charlie, I think you're totally awesome, but when you do an advert and say "I did it right here in the broadcast booth" I don't think you mean ordering a new car.
Same here, every time that commercial comes on I totally think they're talking about something else... I almost wonder if it was deliberate.

Talk about having a face for radio  :lol:

Pretty cool listening to baseball on radio...something atavistic about it, kind of like waking up before dawn and milking cows.

I mean real cows.

Heard their call on my way to work and went nuts in the car. Great call! Thanks Nathan.

that would be cool for the DC area folks, but i am in Seattle.  I'd be bummed losing those guys my XM. 

Maybe a simulcast?

Blasphemy, I know - and maybe it's just me - but I think Charlie and Dave's style is all wrong for TV.  All that screaming and shouting is fine for radio, but when I actually watch a game, I don't need the booth constantly reminding me that they are there.  Maybe this is why I can't understand all the people who talk about muting Carpenter + whoever.  They're so unobtrusive, is it that hard to just tune them out?

I thought that about Bob & Dibble, but FP is like a yippy little dog that won't shut up.

After watching the video on MLB, I noticed how different the two are. Charlie and Dave shout in a good way that their team just won. Bob's call was like "This ones fair. Grand Slam!!!!... how do you like that for a Saturday morning!" I didn't mind the call, I just relate more to Charlie and Dave since I was jumping up and down to.

With radio, they have to talk more to describe what's going on.  I mean it's radio, there can't just be long stretches of silence.  You're right, it might not work as well for TV.

I thought Dave worked great on TV while he was in the booth last week.  IDK if Charlie AND Dave would work on TV, it might be too much, but I think it would work just fine.  I personally like the radio guys because I just think they call a better game.  I think radio guys generally do.  It's never gotten in the way of my watching the game.  The only thing that's slightly annoying is when what they're talking about doesn't match up with what's on the screen because Charlie and Dave are talking about something completely different.  And one final thing, I C&D have a chemistry and repertoire that come with the several years of experience working together that, IMO would translate to any medium.  Carp hasn't been given that luxury with a year of Sutton, a year and a half of Dibs and then this year with FP.  He's had a revolving door of color guys.  I don't think he does a bad job, but he hasn't really been given the chance to really develop something like C&D have.

I'm not asking anyone to change their opinions, just stating mine.  I have relatively little to go on, but I don't think my opinion would change unless Charlie and/or Dave's style did.

Oh I know, just making myself clear.  Everyone here has an opinion about the TV and radio broadcast teams.

Did anyone record the inning of Sunday's game against the Braves (9/25) where Henry Rodriguez struck out the side?  That was one of the greatest p-b-p jobs I've ever heard them do!  Would love to hear it again!  Thanks!

They rock. Does any one else have a hard time telling their voices apart or is that my personal affliction?

I do too!  I wonder who this "Jack of all things" that they talk about?  Is it their producer?  Hung his bathing suit to dry in the booth!  Guy has to be nuts!
