As Ron pretty much noted, Marty Brennaman's announcing is a reflection of the game only as a funhouse mirror distortion of what's really there. At minimum, Brennaman distorts reality to the point of absurdity. At his worst, he calls a game only taking place in his own mind. That's "reality creation" in a nutshell and his infatuation with negatively framing young players runs contrary to the needs of the near-future Reds; who'll need to rely on a good number of young players in order to succeed.
Great move for Marty Brennaman. Poor move for the Reds.
