Mark Ratner: queezyweezel: Mark Ratner: Joe Buck isn't that bad at all. His haters are just more vocal than the people who think he's good. Haters gonna hate.

He's great if monotone average announcers are your thing. That, or you misspelled Jack Buck.

Okay, it would be nice if he showed more emotion, but he doesn't annoy me.


True...I guess I just like announcers that seem to enjoy the game. Shannon, Jack Buck, Caray, Skully, etc. Joe Buck sounds like he's at work. Maybe he should drink while he announces.

Mark Ratner: I guess the suits at Fox believe in leprechauns and unicorns. If he's really that bad, why does he get all the big games?


Chris Berman calls every Home Run Derby.  Can anyone possibly enjoy listening to his retarded 'backbackbackback' chicken yell on every homer?  And yet he still gets to go out there, year after year.

This umpire is all over the place tonight.

And I do agree, he is not that bad.  But he's not Vin. End of discussion.

vegaswench: This umpire is all over the place tonight.


Agreed.  Lots of copious movement of the corners.....but that part has to stay in baseball.  If you take balls and strikes away from the umps, its not the same game.

probably not a bad idea. Hell, I think McCarver's sloshed half the time anyway

Sure, but consistency would be nice.

Ah, dammit.

The Bestest: ..that's not to say i think Buck is the worst in the world. I'd take 20 Joe Bucks over 1 Hawk Harrelson.


Oh that's a tough call.  I guess I hate them both equally but for different reasons.  In fact, it wouldn't be outrageous to say that they are complete opposites.

Samuel Beale's Ghost: NetOwl: Don Mattingly is good people

Why the fark do people talk like this?


Maybe for the same reason anybody says anything: they heard somebody say it, liked the cut of its jib and picked it up for themselves.

Well duh. Vin Scully is the greatest of all time. Jack Buck is #2.

Vin is #1, and Jon Miller's impression of Vin is #2.

Okay, Greinke, let's go.  1-2-3 inning here.

Read "storied" as "steroid". Most steroid franchises. Just sayin'.

2013-10-11 11:15:18 PM
Good call.It looked like the ump was ready for an argument.
 
2013-10-11 11:15:40 PM

Puig's was great.  The last one was routine.

Nice ball outside as a called third strike. Ridiculous.
 
2013-10-11 11:29:21 PM
Nice pitching! Cards look like they are gonna have trouble with dodgers.
 
2013-10-11 11:30:23 PM
Caught looking.....at a ball. What's with the wonky strike zone? Saw the same thing during the ALDS.
 
2013-10-11 11:30:25 PM
How was that close to a strike lol
 
2013-10-11 11:31:25 PM
Holy crap Geinke save your best game for the playoffs
 
2013-10-11 11:31:55 PM

Nice one...



Our hope now is to hold em...dodgers getting more hits off of us.

mikaloyd: Holy crap Geinke save your best game for the playoffs


The ump must be a Dodgers Dan, too. This game is rigged.
 
2013-10-11 11:33:10 PM
Dodgers fan.

He's definitely on point tonight.
 
2013-10-11 11:34:00 PM

ThrnPhl: Go Dodgers!  I want a Boston-LA World Series.


Who will you be rooting for if that happens?  I wanted the same and hope the Sox sweep the old Dodgers/Red Sox players.
