Re: Hard to Listen to
Thom knows a heck of a lot more about baseball than he lets himself comes across. He intentionally asks rhetorical questions and says things to provoke a response and an intelligent answer from his analysts. Sometimes he simply plays devil's advocate.
In reality, he knows a fair amount about the sport. He sacrifices his perception to magnify the interaction between play-by-play man and color commentator.
