Leo Mazzone's laugh. That's all.

I like Leo as a color guy. He did a really good job. The laughing was annoying but other than that I really like him.

question is how much money would it take to get him to take the place of our very own Dick Pole

He pulls just a little to hard for the Braves when hes in the booth.If the Reds were playing someone other than Atlanta I would say he would have done a good job.Hes just a little to bias for the Braves for my taste.

He has a completely different personality than I imagined him having.

I have been hoping for that ever since he left his position in Baltimore, especially with guys like Homer Bailey needing some help, not to mention Cueot, and Volquez continuing his run...

He seemed incredibly one sided during the game. I know he was with Atlanta for 100+ years, but c'mon.

He did seem one sided, while complaining about the balls called while atlanta was pitching. I feel like the home plate umpire was bad for both teams. Freel was clearly safe at home however. I didn't mind him in the booth, probably would have liked him better if we were not playing the braves.

it kind of made things even having thom in the booth with him though. I enjoyed the game, and don't really have any complaints with mazzone, i know i wouldn't be able to call a game unbiased if the reds were in it, so it's understandable, i loved the laugh, lol.

That's because we remember him rocking back and forth on the the bench.

He did give some good insight.

It was a strange broadcast overall for what was supposed to be a "neutral" broadcasting team.

You've got Thom roaring enthusiastic calls every time the Reds did something good (Don't get me wrong, Thom is great), and sounding really bummed after the two Braves homeruns.

On top of that Leo kept pointing out the Brave's pitcher's mistakes trying to appease their fans when we hit one out.

Overall it was just weird for a semi-nationwide game to have representatives (former in Leo's case) of each team in the booth together.

Edit: Imagine a Reds/Dodgers game in the late 70's with Vin Scully and Joe Nuxhall calling it together, see what I mean?

Didn't the Reds-Indians game that was on Fox use both Thom and one of the Cleveland guys for it? Maybe that's what they're doing for their national games now...using one broadcaster from each club's team.

I was at the game today so I didn't really hear much from the broadcast but I LOVED Thom's reaction to BRUUUUUUCE'S home run, LOL :D

Thom is still under contract with Fox, he has to do a number of Saturday games no matter what teams are playing.

I loved Mazzone. Actually felt he was teaching me something where as most color guys just fill the air with BS.

Mazzone would be good for our bench I imagine, even better if you could move Pole to bench coach.

Ended up listening to Thom and Leo since I couldnt sync up the radio and TV broadcast on Saturday....was pleasantly surprised--I enjoyed the goofiness Leo brought to the booth and though some points were beaten like a dead horse (low and outside pitches, we get it, Leo)...Leo did bring some good points to the table. Thom and Leo started off a little awkwardly but were enjoyable after the first inning or so...

I am surprised he has not been hired by any one yet. Perhaps Peter Angelos soured him on coaching for awhile.

We should make a run for rockin leo.. he made a few comments on the air about how he 'hopes' to get back in the dugout.. what a pickup that would be for our staff

Dick Pole

The most uncomfortable name in all of sports.
