Other than the Dodgers I can't think of another team who builds around their main radio guy the way the Reds do.
So if he wants 15 more years I am all for it.
One reason is that radio's not the main way for a team to promote itself anymore. When a team is figuring out its media "team" the television guys are much more of a commercial for the team. The radio team for most teams now is the guys who weren't good enough to do television.
This is a shame for me because I really like listening to baseball games. I like listening to all sports, but baseball's really the one that can come through the best.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
