    Re: Cardinals at Reds 9/20/05

    When I heard Marty read two of the best emails ever I knew that they were sent by members of RedZone.

    Marty always does well with the PBP in the first and 9th innings. My gripe is that he stinks at doing his job in the innings in between.

    Marty was once one of the best PBP Announcers ever.

    If he was anywhere as bad when he first started as he is now, he would never have made it into the HOF.

    It's my opinion that if Marty did TV for FSO and George Grand did PBP on WLW radio Andy Furman, Segman, and Matt would spit the bit with Marty and fight each other to get a jaw full of George.

    So. He's the poster child for 2 phenomenons. BA driven OBP and the extreme example (Coors field'esque) of a player that's game perfectly matches his home ballpark.
    So....ummm..does he have a hot wife that Matt Belisle sleeps with......

    Sorry....this Major League reference is getting out of hand...

    I get annoyed by Marty, but only as it pertains to baseball knowledge. All of the other complaints seem to be so much nitpicking. There is a lot of dead time in a baseball game, and a lot of folks like the small talk about personal matters. I suppose he could go the route that Grande and Welsh do and repeat the same info about the opponent throughout a series, or talk ad infinitum about what the Reds FO should be doing.

    If nit picking involves missing 2 out every pitches thrown or not once mentioning the score in 3 innings then I'm guilty as charged.

    It would be nice to hear the Reds radio team talk about the type of stuff a pitcher has not the type of stuff that a golf bag has.

    I may live in Portland, but I'm from Cincinnati and the Reds are my team. It's so typical of Marty to belittle my comments because they didn't come from someone in Cincinnati. Being that he's a megalomaniac with a provincial worldview I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
    If you had mentioned white dogturds, Marty would have loved you.
