Can We Please Get a New Crew?
« Topic Start: August 13, 2019, 05:50:14 PM »
Carpenter is the most moronic, useless, sound machine of inanities in the big leagues.  Can we please get rid of this loser for some talented insight?

At least Carpenter rarely uses, "jammage" and "jam job" nowadays.  He does however call every fastball a "challenge fastball."

This ranking is moronic. Anything that ranks the Mets crews as third best in baseball is a joke. But whatever. It's all so subjective. And though I don't think the Nats crew is all that great, they are by far from the worst.

Carp and FP being voted the worst in MLB should come as no surprise to any of us.  I think they have cross-over potential...they could be the worst at most anything they chose to do...

At least we don't have the formalin-preserved corpses they have to suffer through on the other MASN channel.

I'm of the mindset that if people watched Laurence Olivier read Shakespeare 162 times a year he would get on everybody's nerves. Familiarity breeds contempt, right?

I was given an upgrade to First Class on a USAirways flight from Charlotte years ago...the last such seat on that flight. 

Jim Palmer was standing behind me in line at the gate counter, expecting to get an upgrade as well.  What followed was not pretty...  :D

We did not make eye contact as he walked past me to the rear of the plane...  :hysterical:

exactly! Ron Darling is a joke. Alex Chapell is more eloquent that that joker. :crackup:



I rip on our crew a lot but to say they're the worst is asinine. And the birds are 4th. :hysterical:

In that vein, I'm still incredibly happy they haven't sold naming rights for the park itself. Dunno if they haven't found the highest bidder or if the city put something in when they agreed to finance saying, 'You can't rename for X years.' Anyone know, please feel free to educate me.

I'm probably in the extreme minority in this, but I liked Darling's commentary. Not sure what the consensus is on Mel Proctor, but I liked him too.

I liked Proctor. Darling is as bad today as he was in 2005.

Darling with Cohen and Hernandez is awesome, maybe without them he sucks but the three of them together are the best broadcast team out there.
