Re: A new Marty has to go thread
Yep, Marty no longer enjoys doing his job. Well maybe he enjoys reading emails about BBQ, etc and broadcasting "the Marty show", but that's not his job.
I stopped listening to the Reds about a month or so ago. I think that's the earliest point in the season I gave up on them. A large part of that is because with Joe gone, Marty has taken over the booth and now does a HORRIBLE broadcast.
IMO, there is effectively a trivia question every inning, because Marty doesn't shut up about it. It's his favorite dead air time filler.
I listened to just about every game before the allstar break, and I can't recall Marty giving us one interesting piece of information about the Reds or any of their players. Not one. Marty is at the point where a voice synthesizer on an internet game tracker would be more pleasant to listen to.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
