I think the Reds have gotten to the point where they have too many announcers. No way Welsh should be doing any play by play. Just because Marty's a prima donna and refuses to do more than 6 innings a night doesn't mean that such ridiculousness should be continued when he's not there. Welsh should not have been at the mike there
Yea, at least he got something out, Brantley would still be describing the play, on about word 4 by now I figure.
