Re: Vin Scully retiring after 2010 season
I knew this day was coming but I'm still bummed to hear the news. I was hoping he'd continue until the end like Harry Carey and others but he is in his 80s even though he doesn't sound like it. With the Reds play of recent, staying up late to hear a game called by Vin is one of pleasures I still enjoy in baseball. His insight really is incredible. He must just hang out in the clubhouse before these games 'cause he can tell you what the siblings of an opposing player do for a living, in what clubs the player participated in high school as well as his baseball skills. Scully is also not negative like Marty. Instead of berading a player for a boneheaded move, Vin will say something like that player was taken to school or so and so learned a valuable lesson.
Vin can teach us all something beyond baseball: class
