Yea, Thom is the weakest link on TV. When the Reds make a mistake or things are going bad, he's very annoying.
That said, since we are stuck with his contract, he needs to be on TV. When Marty and Thom are together on radio, it's absolutely horrible, as they feed off each other's bad attitude.
Chris Welsh is an awesome broadcaster. I respect stats, but I'm not hardcore about them as some people are. I think Welsh does a great job at introducing stats in small bites so people can understand and not get overwhelmed/bored. Kelch is fine.
IMO, the TV broadcast is much better than the radio broadcast.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
