    There's nothing better than Thom calling a walkoff win, he's great at that. Listening to him for nine full innings (especially when losing) is a different story.

    His over the top groaning and complaining gets a little old. It's a lot different when he's calling a Fox Saturday game though. He has to be indifferent, so he's a lot less dejected or excited during plays.

    IMO, no one calls a better moment than Marty.

    Last night, Marty seemed nearly at a loss for words, and even forgot his "this one belongs to the Reds" signature. I think the suddenness of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat really snuck up on him.

    Thom made a great call on the Choo HR, he was surprised Mez's HR went out.

    I have never been impressed with Thom. Easily the worst of the Reds broadcasters in my opinion.

    Thom supporters should have heard him going on with Marty today on the radio about how much he disagrees with the notion of MLB teams condoning strikeouts. He's very much convinced that strikeouts are an important indicator of a team's chances for a successful season. When discussing how appalled he was that the Braves and Reds don't find them objectionable, you'd have thought he was discussing the decriminalization of bank robbery!

    When we hear newbie RedsZoners staking out that same position, keep in mind where it's coming from.

    Thom is more amazed by modern baseball than any man who has watched thousands if games over the last decade

    I seriously believe he doesn't think about the game beyond the announcers booth

    It's weak analysis and it produces semi dramatic BS moments throughout the game and distracts from what's really going on down on the field.

    Easily? Cmon... There's a reason he's featured as a PBP man on the Fox national broadcasts.

    Um. Fox also has employed Tim McCarver since 1996. So I don't really equate Fox with quality broadcasting.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Not to mention Joe Buck, who is the absolute worst. I cannot listen to him.

    McCarver was once pretty good.

    I liked McCarver until he began announcing every game as though his audience had never seen a baseball game before.

    I liked McCarver basically in the pre-Fox era. So he hasn't been good since 1995.

    But that could just be because I wasn't such a jaded fan yet. I was still young and innocent.

    McCarver was insightful and good for quite a while. But the SABR and the internet happened and then wasn't as smart.

    Pay attention to the open sky
