I agree with most of where he was going with it-- most talk show hosts won't even go there and unlike a guy like Skip Bayless, I don't think Cowherd says stuff he doesn't believe just to get a rise out of people.
Cowherd is very, very smart. He knows marketing and he knows his audience. He is also exceedingly arrogant, which leaves a bad taste for many fans. But his show is good.
For the most part I like Cowherd. More than anything else, he is honest in his takes and backs them up. He has long talked about how on a national show he needs to talk about the national teams. He couldn't do an hour long segment on the Reds because most of his listeners don't care.
I don't think he is very knowledgeable when it comes to baseball. He knows his stuff when he talks football or basketball (I don't listen to the NBA stuff). But when it comes to baseball he doesn't know much outside of what Buster Yankee talks about.
