Harry Doyle: That's all we got, one goddamn hit?
Assistant: You can't say goddamn on the air.
Harry Doyle: Don't worry, nobody is listening anyway.

That's nice. Compared to Ty Cobb's dad telling him not to come home a failure.

Did Len Barker's kid cover the story?

"HOT SHOT TO THE SECOND BASEMAN WHO MAKES A DIVING STOP AND AN OFF-BALANCE THROW TO JUUUUST BEST HAMILTON AT FIRST!"

"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh, people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come."

There's nothing wrong with that.  I'd rather have excitable over the endless droning of the surf (Nats) or the tipsy, drunken-sounding conversations (Braves).  But the worst team I've heard was the Washington announcers, Huff and Jourgenson.  Goodness, it was hard to tell there was even a game going.

Hey I'm not worried about Cleveland this year. Kevin Costner is handling their draft.

No snark. According to the MLB TV announcers, Francona started him as a gesture. The gesture helped beat the Reds, so all was good for the Tribe that day.

I thought the Indians were good? I don't follow baseball that closely so I could be wrong.

Well they made the playoffs last year. I don't really see it happening this year though.

/They will be in the running for a wild card spot.

They are the 3rd best team in the AL Central. After Det and KC.

He couldn't even get on base? What an embarrassment. No dessert for you, son!

My dad once picked me up on time after a CYO basketball game.

And Mike Piazza was drafted by the Dodgers as a favor to Tommy LaSorda.  In the 62nd round.  We all know how that worked out.

Huh. I could have sworn it was still spring training.

Was I the only one hoping that we'd have a Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland World Series last year?

And yeah, I'll remind Cleveland....

If that was my dad he would probably have some snarky smartass things to say.

"Groppet and his brother took the family car out for a joyride one night and to pick up some girls. Neither of them scored that night either.

Pitcher should have thrown one pitch behind him...way behind him.., just for drama.

Hamilton: Hey, ump, how 'bout a warning?

Ump: Sure, kid. Watch out you don't get killed.

Nice moment. Nick Hamilton is a cool story - legally deaf and his dad is the beloved Tom Hamilton. He'll probably never get to the majors, but it's fun watching him in the minors.

We are so proud of you ... really we are.
