Exactly how I feel.
I just can't stand when an announcer acts like a player or team's lack of success (say, the Reds not being able to score with the bases loaded) is somehow a personal insult to them. I still remember last year Tom railing on Bruce who was down 0-2 in the count, and in mid-sentence of bashing him Bruce lines a single while Thom is still talking about how awful Bruce is or whatever.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
