FP just tweeted that he’s back tonight.
Had to promise not to be mean to Dan.

what's weird is that I thought they got along and that it was mostly just some ribbing that got out of control.

Alex is cute but fumbles her words quite a bit.  Maybe she will improve with experience.

FP and Kolko smiling on the pre game but no mention of what happened with FP.  Don't ask and don't tell.

Was never that big of an FP fan but he is miles ahead of who they have had as stand-ins.

That's precisely why they put those two clinkers on the broadcasts.  If they put someone on who we all enjoyed, no one would want FP back...

The closed captioning guy doesn’t even know Kolko’s first name.

All that is fine. Here's whats bothering me: Kolko and Paulson are not nearly as good as Dave Jaegler. Jaegler has experience doing TV. He's more familar with the team than Maxwell or Paulson. He's better than anyone else that is available. And Pete Methurst is more than capable of doing baseball on WJFK with Charlie.

MASN is intentionally producing an inferior broadcast, likely in an effort to devalue the network in response  to the rulings against them.

Charlie and Dave work so well together, I would vote for keeping them together either on radio or TV, rather than splitting them up.

Theyve split them up before.

If your goal is to put the best possible product on TV with your key broadcast members out, then you use the best people you have available. Dave Jaegler on TV is exponentially better than Kolko. The TV broadcast goes from unbearable to actually pretty good. The radio broadcast goes from outstanding to very good with Charlie and Pete.

They work for different entities. Who knows who's in agreement, who is squeezing who, etc.

Personally, of the four regular broadcast guys, Dave is my favorite.

I'm guessing some kind of broken COVID protocol.  Like he was out doing something he thought was ok vaccinated but broke DC or MASN or team rules.  Fits with the original story from Grant's show.

She looks healthy to me. Not like that one who used to be on with the emaciated arms.

There was an exchange yesterday during Trea's second AB to start the 4th where FP jokingly said don't get me angry (when talking about Trea's defense) and then went into something about everyone will criticize you for something.  The FP said "just go on Twitter", and Dan said "We found that out the hard way"... and FP quickly changed the subject to talking about the sunset.  FP and his son were both off Twitter for those same 3 days, and his son is back very active when FP returned.   I don't know how you get in trouble on Twitter without it being public unless he lost in on someone in DMs.

I know. They are better when they are together. Them together on TV will be better than any other combination.

Honestly, who would want to work for MASN these days?

Unpaid summer interns would be appropriate for DC.
