    But it was OK for Larkin, over the last several years, while being paid darn good money, to pull shenanigans and stunts to try embarass and slam this orgainzation? And some of his and Jr's antics together were numerous.

    I agree with most everything Marty stated.

    The caller asked Marty a question, and as Marty said... did he want the PC version, or how he really felt about this situation? If you don't want someone's honest opinion, regardless who it may be, then don't ask it.

    I guess some wanted the PC version.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    "I guess some wanted the PC version."

    Is it "PC" to say, "I don't want to comment on something that's in the past and doesn't involve the current state of the Reds"?

    Seems to me that that's a good personal policy to have. Not talking about things that aren't germane to the current state of the team; otherwise, you look like Marty does--a bitter jilted lover who can't stop talking about an ex. Bad form, it's embarrassing.

You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Larkin's exit, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me in that broadcast booth. You need me in that broadcast booth.

    We use words like play-by-play, promo, segue...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent blathering about something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very broadcast I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a microphone and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!

    I like Marty doing Play By Play.
    I just wish he would stick to the game.

    Seems like since he made HOF he'd
    rather be anywhere than callin' the game.
