Well this is really stupid. And they have Joe "Braves Homer" Simpson doing the Braves game. What a joke.
Well, Smoltz would have just as big of a Braves bias if he'd be doing that game. If this is the normal crew you were going to have that issue regardless. There are so many local guys who also do national games that you're going to have this fairly regularly. If Kirk Herbstreit can do Ohio State games nationally, Ripken should be able to maintain some professionalism in the broadcast too.
