Yep...I was just gonna point that out.


We have to wait for the rosters to expand before George can be called up :cool:

haha, i wonder if we can call up the play by play guy from lousville to do the reds game, he has to be better. But that might not work if Keels is out of options.:)

I'm not concerned about that, Keels would easily pass through waivers.

I heard about this on the radio from Marty. He never seems like the most worried or caring father even when he talked about his son getting a broken leg. If I didn't know Marty was Thom's dad I would swear he didn't like Thom at all.

Well at least now we will not mind if he says Edmonds goes back and "he got it, he got it!"

The timing couldn't be worse with the team heading to the west coast, I'm afraid Keels will put me to sleep by the 3rd inning. :sleep:

Bring Grande back early. Keels is human NoDoze when doing baseball. "The Creeper" would be happy.

Isn't that actually where they got Kelch from?

New Reds TV duo

Reds fans will see a new TV team when the team plays in Colorado Sept. 6-8, as analysts Chris Welsh and Jeff Brantley call the game. So far this year, each has worked only with play-by-play announcers Thom Brennaman or Paul Keels.

I hate Keels, literally hate him. BTW, anyone noticed we get swept when he calls games? Seattle, Philly, StL, even though we swept FLA

i think he called the pirates series that we got swept in earlier in the season as well.

I am not a fan of Thom, in fact I think he is the worst of all the Reds announcers, Keels not included. The worst is when Father and Son are on the radio.....unlistenable.

Yes if you want to here about the game do not listen to Mary and Thom. That was the worst radio broadcast I've ever heard and I have broadcasted for a school station before.

I'm with ya. Thom isn't a shade on his dad's legacy and Marty ain't the announcer he used to be.

Oh, I know. If they're coming back from a break, Marty often forgets to mention the score. It's not a problem when I've listened from the start but if I'm just tuning in? GIVE ME THE SCORE!

Personally, I'm tired of the glut of broadcasters this team has. I'd be pretty happy if they'd just make Kelch and the Cowboy the radio team and pick up Steve Stewart again to work with Welsh on TV.

While I'm at it, let's send Gapper into retirement. There's no reason we need Mr. Redlegs, Rosie, and that furry abomination.

Why do announcers go on vacation DURING the season? Isn't the other 6 months of the year enough time to work in a month or two for vacation?

why all the hate for Thom. I subscribe to MLB.TV and Thom is by far one of the best in the business. Other teams announcing duos do not come close to Thom and Chris IMO.... Also I get mlb radio on xm and Marty is the best out there. Marty and the guy that does the Cubs play by play are the best on the radio IMO... Trust me, we are lucky to have Marty, Thom, Chris and even the Cowboy.

I think for a family man with a wife and children, a couple of weeks off during the Summer is acceptable.

Better get used to Thom. He will replace his dad as PBP one day

Thom is great. He really speaks to me, the fan who hangs on every pitch.

He's very intense, and very into the game. I can tell that he's very passionate and knowledgeable.

Thom is fine when he's doing what he's hired for, and that's broadcast the game. I don't give a crap about his opinion on teams/players/etc. I'll form my own opinion, thank you. He's a little bit of a blowhard at times, he sometimes reminds me of Joe Buck, but not as bad.
