Vin is a class act. But somebody from the Central will take the pennant this year, and it won't be the Cubs, the Brewers, the Reds, or the Pirates.

Here it is. BTW, Giants and Dodgers fans don't agree on much, but we both generally agree that the two teams have the best two announcers currently working in baseball.  Giants fans hate the Dodgers but we all like Vin Scully, and Dodgers fans hate the Giants but they like Jon Miller.

As an Angeleno & a life-long Dodgers fan, and an unmitigated, unapologetic baseball fan in general, I have been truly privileged to listen to Vin call games for over 45 years (yeah, yeah - get off my lawn). Vin is without peer in the broadcasting industry. His ability to call the play-by-play and tell stories - about the game, about life, about anything - is far and away the best in the business. He respects the intelligence of the audience, he respects the game and its traditions, and he knows when to be silent and let what's happening in the field and in the stands play out without unnecessary comment. One day, Vin will decide to retire. The lives of the people of Los Angeles will be poorer as a result. And baseball will be just an

A lot of you are disguised as empty seats, then.  If you click the link to order the table you posted by percentage of seats sold in the stadium, the Dodgers, at 81%, aren't even the top-attended team in the L.A. area--that honor would go to the Los Angeles Anaheim California Angels of Disneyland or whatever they're calling themselves these days, at 81.9%, far behind such teams with truly devoted fans such as the Cards, Red Sox, and Tigers. And, of course, far behind the team who is #1 in filling their stadium every night, in good years and bad, your World Champion San Francisco Giants, at 99.4%.

Not necessarily.  Attendance figures are calculated on tickets sold, not asses in seats.

The one redeeming thing about the Kirk Gibson home run is seeing all those tail lights beyond the outfield wall suddenly get brighter as all those fans that left a CLOSE WORLD SERIES GAME were filled with regret and self-loathing.

No, I'm a Giants fan, and you would've seen that the point I was making was that it's 99.4% versus 81% if you had bothered to read the next sentence--I bolded it and everything, so even the Dodgers fans could understand it!  But assuming you're a Dodgers fan, I can understand why reading two whole sentences might be too much of a strain for you.  I'm sure your lips were moving when you struggled through that one sentence you managed to almost make it through!

skrame: I retract my "Oh snap". Dodgers have the highest number of tickets sold. They shouldn't be penalized for having the larger stadium.


Dodger Stadium has a seating capacity of 53,275, of which they've averaged 45,365 paid attendance per game (this year, when they've been good).  The Giants' ballpark, AT&T Park, has a capacity of 41,915 (including standing room tickets), of which they've averaged paid attendance of 41,647 (there hasn't been a has been a sellout for the last couple of years, so I don't know what the deal is with the other 250 tickets per game that they list as "unsold"--giveaway or promotional tickets, maybe?).  I'm sure that if AT&T seated the same number of people as Dodger Stadium, those extra seats would fill up each night too.  There simply are never unsold seats by gametime at AT&T, and there wouldn't be even if another 10,000 seats existed.

Of course, Los Angeles has a population of 3.8 million.  San Francisco has a population of 800,000.  (And there's a comparable difference in the size of the respective metropolitan areas.)  Proportionately, wouldn't Dodger Stadium have to seat over 200,000 people (and sell it out) to compare to the Giants level of fan support?  Not to mention that there's another MLB team so close to the Giants that you can actaully see their ballpark from AT&T Park, yet the Giants still fill the place every night..

The things that make Vin so revered are not found in simple highlights posted to YouTube. Vin calls the play-by-play of the game, yes; he's not flashy; he's not a homer; he does a good job of the PBP, but it's nothing spectacular (although "In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened" is a truly great call). YouTube clips don't include the stories, anecdotes, life lessons, history lessons, literary references and civic-mindedness that Vin displays on a nightly basis. You have to listen to a full broadcast to hear those things. Once you've done that, you'll begin to appreciate the fluidity of his work, the appreciation for baseball, for learning and for life itself that he imparts to the listener, and the absolute mastery of his craft that he possesses.

Wow, Grandpa, since we're talking about ancient history, can we compare the Brooklyn Dodgers versus the New York Giants?  Tell me, do you still carry that grudge from when Durocher abandoned "Dem Bums" to become the Giants' manager?

If we're going to talk about history that took place in most Farker's lifetimes, it's more like this:

Since 35 years ago: SF Giants' WS trophies (2) > L.A. Dodgers' WS trophies (0)

Seriously, I expected better trash talk from Dodgers fans.  You guys are in first place and are probably heading to the World Series, and the World Champions are in the cellar and headed nowhere.  Nobody has even mentioned this yet.  I know you're out of practice talking smack to Giants fans since the Dodgers have been the Giants' biatches in recent years, but you guys really need to step up your game.

Well said, and very true.  As much as I hate the Dodgers, I still listen to his broadcasts of Dodgers games whenever I can catch them, for just these very reasons.  Yes, I have to admit that the nasally tone of his voice has never been pleasant to me, but the content is so good that it's not an issue.

Plus, I'm old, and it's comforting to hear a ballgame called by the same guy I remember listening to as a little kid.  The voice of virtually every other person I remember hearing from my childhood (except my mother's, fortunately), I'll never hear live again, because they're all dead and gone.  This includes virtually all baseball announcers, too, and that was a big part of my life as a kid.  (Though I was surprised to learn that the Giants' announcer from that era, Lon Simmons, is still alive and well at 90 years old, though not still working obviously--the Giants had a day for him on honor of his 90th birthday earlier this year, and the old guy still looks and sounds great!)  I know it's silly, but so much of the world has changed in my life and so much of my childhood is lost that it just makes me feel like the world is a better and more familiar place to hear Vin Scully's voice.  I still feel like that 10-year old kid, listening to the game with his dad on the car radio (picked up on KFI through the static from 400 miles away) while driving home from a Little League game.

Damn, I'm old.

I'm pretty sure I was alive in '88 and I'm not 35.


Don't forget 1981, either...

So: Since 35 years ago:  SF Giants' WS trophies (2) = L.A. Dodgers' WS trophies (2)
 
I'm looking forward to changing that on or before Halloween to read:

Since 35 years ago:  SF Giants' WS trophies (2) < L.A. Dodgers' WS trophies (3)

Yeah, as mentioned above, I totally farked that up.  You're obviously correct there.

LessO2: D-Liver: Cyberluddite: Lt. Cheese Weasel: It's gonna be a Dodgers/Rangers World Series. My two fave teams, called by my most cherished radio voice/announcer.

God, I hope not.  Seeing the Dodgers in the WS would make me almost as sad as seeing the Giants in the WS 2 of the last 3 years made me happy.  Though I have the depressing, sinking feeling that it's gonna happen, dammit.

Hey, if there's a World Series game in L.A., do you think the fans would show up before the 3rd inning or stay later than the 7th--for a change?

At least we show up

Not necessarily.  Attendance figures are calculated on tickets sold, not asses in seats.

Not saying people aren't showing up to Chavez Ravine, they are, but it's not that many.

Chavez?

D-Liver: Bottom line: 5 rings to 2,


Let me guess Steelers fan too?

I enjoy my teams as well, but if you go 10 years between today and your last championship, it is over. You are a regular also-ran
