Re: 1975 World Series DVD Set
No, Marty wasn't bitter. He also *stopped talking* and let other people say things. Of course, he was only used occasionally. The main PBP guys (which, interestingly enough, changed constantly over the seven games) would throw to him for fifteen seconds about Ken Griffey's speed or the lineup's hitting approach, and he'd hit the mark every time.
However, I must go on record as saying I like his voice better now. It's much deeper with age. He also has a much better sense of dramatic pacing and timing (which was also the only thing I didn't much like about Steve Stewart).
Just let me be clear: he's only in the games at Riverfront. Some of the rest of the time you get Joe Garagiola and Tony Kubek (also Dick Stockton, the Boston radio guy at the time, and some others I don't remember), and Kubek is the worst AL homer because he'd broadcasted almost exclusively AL Games of the Week for so long. The AL homerism struck me as funny, considering the Red Sox were the prohibitive underdogs going in.
