One way to fix the PC nature of the show would be to have a week long residency for these guys, so eventually the bs would reside and baseball talk would get better. So far the only guy that could hold down the show for a full season would be Rose, IMO.
Finally, I'll admit to not having much fatigue with Rose due to less exposure to his career. I didn't want to bring up any of the bad vibes surrounding him, but that seems to be the first thing on many minds.
This show isn't about that and would be a way of moving past that stuff, and getting closer to the game for Pete. He's in Siberia as it is. Maybe he could make the broadcast HOF, haha.
That's a lot of talent for a AM radio show, what is the actual audience for such a show?
I know I watch the games, skip pregame and post game noise myself, who watches these shows and do they care about Pete 23 years after he was banned?
That's a whole generation.
