Maybe I should have went to school instead of being "sick".

1. Lineups don't matter.
2. Moving Griffey out of CF doesn't help the defense "because he gets great jumps."
3. Livingston has better stuff then Arroyo.
4. Griffey should bat wherever he wants in the lineup.

In all fairness he's played the game. He sees things you cannot even imagine, and understands concepts that fan's minds cannot understand. On top of that he's highly successful outside of baseball, yet still allows the commoners the chance to talk with him.

Tracy annoys me as much as anyone else, but give credit where credit is due. Tracy was a pretty damn solid ballplayer from 1986-1988.

Insult his intellect/knowledge all you want, but don't disrespect his accomplishments on the field. 99.9% of the folks who post on Redszone would love to have had his MLB career.

Yes, but this does not compare with the mind of Alan Cutler. Cutler has been watching games for over 40 years. How long have you been watching games? :D

Lets get one thing straight about the Tracer....his on-air demeanor is all schtick....obviously he has learned at the feet of the WLW masters, such as Bill Cunningham...watching Tracy smirk and laugh at the GameDay Cafe during the McConnell show, it is obvious he is not taking himself or the show that seriously....and thats ok with me...

Tracy is hilarious to listen to... if you take the show for what it is. He isn't attempting to provide great insight into the game, and plays off of his "character" and the calls he garners.

Ok so eseriosuly, I have never listened to tracy Jones beffore but tonight -- I understand I am typing fast so I am going toe slow down. Today I ewnt to a baby shower and had about 18 mimosas so obivously I am drunk so we were driving home (none drunk was driving) and listening to tracy Jones and he says ooooh why does everybody hate eric milton (ed note: BECAUSE HE IS VERY VERY VEYR BAD FOR OUR BASEB ALL TEAM) I am rooting fo rhim! Says tracy. I root for theu nderdog! And I say Tracy, that is bull all over and my cousin says call him! Tell him! so I do.

and ai have the great great misfrotune of getting on the air right after some supid dude named NIck. Now I don't know whjo Nick was but he's an idiot and he didn't know anything about sports but wanted to yell at Tracy for not tipping him well and being bad at his retsaturatn.
Wahtever, it was stupid. but he let him talk for five hours and he got really mad and shouted at him. They didn't talk about sports at all. they lobed instults at each otehr.

So then he gets to me and I talked about eric milton. And he said so you're against him? And I said I'm nota tginast him but we have to face facts, he's enver going to pitch well and there is a differnce between rooting for a guy to do well and rooting for a guy with one knee who CAN NEVER do well.

And he cut me off!!! He didn't want me to talk at all!!! he went right back to talking about nick.

Now I know tyhis is probalby all very amusing because I'm not spelling well but seriously, I'm telling you, this is the bane of my existence. i hate to say that he owulnd't let me talk because I'm a girl. and I don't think that's consicously it. but he didn't listen to what I wanted to say (and I don't think I osundddedc this durnk on the phone, I'm very good at talking well that's how I do my living) and more importantly he didn't want to hear me talk because I didn't want to talk about stupid nick. whihc is, I'm very very sorry, such a frat boy thing to twant to talk about. Ooooh he was stupid! he was mean to you! I bet his parents rescued him from sporst!! Oh my god are you people all in junior high.

And everybody after me just talked about stupid nick in continuing classic boy ooooh I bet he was fat and in the band in hgih school (serously I'm not making this up) and suuuuuuure tracy talked to them. While all the meanwhile saying he didn't understand why he let him go on for so long! He said he watned to talk about baseball but the only people he let talk were the people not talking about baseball!!! aaaaaahhhhhhh :bang:

so thehn the NEXT person who wanted to talk about ERic milton he let him go on and on, and eh says so we have one for him and three against and i'm all in the car screaming I NEVER SAID IW AS AGAINST HIM!!!!

Boys you listen to me, and I am dead seirous about this, when you meet a girl who lieks abseball and wants to talk about it, let her frekaing talk about it, dont' a) not listen to her or b) talk about the fact that she likes to talk about baseball ("wow you know a lot for a girl" SHUT THE HELL UP. I will beat the freaking crap out of you.) have a conversation!! don't talk about who played lacrosse in high school. and let me talk about stupid eric MIlton's stupid freaking nknee.

so then carla calls in and he lets her talk bae ause she won a date with him last year. and they didn't talk about baseball at all. people are so stupid.

in any cawse seriously it was the worst talk radio show i've ever heard and now ir emember why i don't ever listen to them.

I'm sure a lot of you are familar with "Richard" from Indian Hill and his many calls to the Extra Innings with Tracy Jones. He's on the air crying about the Reds game time being changed to 1:05 pm today. He said he's calling from I-71 south on his way to the 7:10 pm game tonight. What a goof. WLW announced that change a hundred times last night.

The Tracy Jones show (ummmm, I mean "Extra Innings") has become more about Tracy entertaining himself and his friends, and advertising his financial planning business, and less and less about baseball, unfortunately.

Don't sweat it.

Tracy is forced to take one drunkard call after another on his wonderful show. At the end of the day Mr. Jones doesn't deserve to be lambasted by anyone on this board, ever. And isn't that what every drunk driver says to a cop after being pulled over? "I'm okay, really I am."

Alright, I'll type well so you understand me (painstaking as it is). You have no idea what I said or how I sounded on the phone.

The bottom line is that he went on and on about wanting to talk about baseball and people want to talk about other stuff (ie. Nick from Loveland), while all the while diverting the focus of his entire show to talk about Nick from Loveland. I wanted to talk about Eric Milton (ie. baseball); he wouldn't do it. I don't consider a show "wonderful" when it lets an idiot go on for ten minutes about nothing related to the show, then spends the rest of the show putting him down for the way he may or may not have been during high school. ?

And please don't tell me how he fills out a uniform. I know from people who fill out uniforms well, of this I can assure you.

Tracy Jones is not a "turd bowl". He is highly intelligent, well mannered, and fills out a uniform like nobodies business.

Again, welcome to the board Tracy. No one is forced to take calls on a radio show. Last I heard, they have call screeners to take care of that. You can choose to take calls by fans who have serious points about baseball and discuss them in an intelligent manner, or you can choose to take the calls from the drunks because you think it's more entertaining. The fact that just about all of the sports talk hosts choose to take the drunk calls over those who might have a valid yet dissenting opinion shows that it's not about sports at WLW, it's about making fun of drunks and imbeciles. The only other people who get airtime are the ones who start with "Hi Marty/Tracy/Tom, love you love the show."

I was listening to the show after I left the Teamsters' today and I couldn't figure out who that was on the radio. I thought it was Skinner for a minute then decided it was Piecoro. Then, right about the time I got on 75 he started berating some caller and I knew then it was Tracy and I immediately changed the channel.

Me and Mr. Jones, we got a thing going on,

We both know that it's wrong

But it's much too strong to let it cool down now.

We meet ev'ry day at the same cafe,

Six-thirty I know he'll be there,

Holding hands, making all kinds of plans

While the jukebox plays our favorite song.

Me and Mr., Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones,

Tracy is hilarious to listen to... if you take the show for what it is. He isn't attempting to provide great insight into the game, and plays off of his "character" and the calls he garners.

I couldn't have said this better myself. I think most RZ's listen hoping for it to be overly insightful with regard to baseball, but that's just not his show. There is a baseball element to it though. You have to take the show for what it's worth or you won't enjoy it. And he is a smart guy, don't kid yourselves. He may make some dumb comments here and there, but he has an opinion and it's hard not to respect that (even if it's not one that others agree with).

One can only hope that this is forced upon Tracy via the "Ludovico Technique."

Now that would be impressive... like nobodies business.

Ok so eseriosuly, I have never listened to tracy Jones beffore but tonight -- I understand I am typing fast so I am going toe slow down. Today I ewnt to a baby shower and had about 18 mimosas so obivously I am drunk so we were driving home (none drunk was driving) and listening to tracy Jones and he says ooooh why does everybody hate eric milton (ed note: BECAUSE HE IS VERY VERY VEYR BAD FOR OUR BASEB ALL TEAM) I am rooting fo rhim! Says tracy. I root for theu nderdog! And I say Tracy, that is bull all over and my cousin says call him! Tell him! so I do.

and ai have the great great misfrotune of getting on the air right after some supid dude named NIck. Now I don't know whjo Nick was but he's an idiot and he didn't know anything about sports but wanted to yell at Tracy for not tipping him well and being bad at his retsaturatn.
Wahtever, it was stupid. but he let him talk for five hours and he got really mad and shouted at him. They didn't talk about sports at all. they lobed instults at each otehr.

So then he gets to me and I talked about eric milton. And he said so you're against him? And I said I'm nota tginast him but we have to face facts, he's enver going to pitch well and there is a differnce between rooting for a guy to do well and rooting for a guy with one knee who CAN NEVER do well.

And he cut me off!!! He didn't want me to talk at all!!! he went right back to talking about nick.

Now I know tyhis is probalby all very amusing because I'm not spelling well but seriously, I'm telling you, this is the bane of my existence. i hate to say that he owulnd't let me talk because I'm a girl. and I don't think that's consicously it. but he didn't listen to what I wanted to say (and I don't think I osundddedc this durnk on the phone, I'm very good at talking well that's how I do my living) and more importantly he didn't want to hear me talk because I didn't want to talk about stupid nick. whihc is, I'm very very sorry, such a frat boy thing to twant to talk about. Ooooh he was stupid! he was mean to you! I bet his parents rescued him from sporst!! Oh my god are you people all in junior high.

And everybody after me just talked about stupid nick in continuing classic boy ooooh I bet he was fat and in the band in hgih school (serously I'm not making this up) and suuuuuuure tracy talked to them. While all the meanwhile saying he didn't understand why he let him go on for so long! He said he watned to talk about baseball but the only people he let talk were the people not talking about baseball!!! aaaaaahhhhhhh :bang:

so thehn the NEXT person who wanted to talk about ERic milton he let him go on and on, and eh says so we have one for him and three against and i'm all in the car screaming I NEVER SAID IW AS AGAINST HIM!!!!

Boys you listen to me, and I am dead seirous about this, when you meet a girl who lieks abseball and wants to talk about it, let her frekaing talk about it, dont' a) not listen to her or b) talk about the fact that she likes to talk about baseball ("wow you know a lot for a girl" SHUT THE HELL UP. I will beat the freaking crap out of you.) have a conversation!! don't talk about who played lacrosse in high school. and let me talk about stupid eric MIlton's stupid freaking nknee.

so then carla calls in and he lets her talk bae ause she won a date with him last year. and they didn't talk about baseball at all. people are so stupid.

in any cawse seriously it was the worst talk radio show i've ever heard and now ir emember why i don't ever listen to them.

Everyone here seems to get there jollies out of making fun of Tracy. I can tell you that every time I've met him he's been nothing but gracious, self depricating and an all around wonderful human being. There are millions of people in this country, and there are tons of people who drink from the sickening cup of avarice, so much so that they will drown in their own filth. Tracy is a beaconing reminder of all that is good, a ray of sunshine down into the muck of our everyday exsistence. As we all crawl up from the mud underneath the rock of life Tracy will be there to guide us into Baseball immortality. For it is he who has played the game. It is he who has played with Alan Trammel. And it is he who transforms another weekend into Baseball bliss. Rejoice in this festive season, the baseball god is here.

"Tracy Jones is not a "turd bowl". He is highly intelligent, well mannered, and fills out a uniform like nobodies business."

The cop from the Village People also fills out a uniform pretty well. Check him out.

Tracy is an entertaining talk show host, as long as you don't get sick of his repetitive riffs. "I played the game, you didn't, Girls are morons, Ken Griffey is God (him and Griffey are buds and former teammates, which is why he constantly will nose up Ken's rear beyond any measure of rational thought)."
I hope he is more rational with his stock picks than he is with his Griffey stuff, but I enjoy listening to him anyway.
