    The Old Lefthander to Be More Involved in 2006

    http://www.daytondailynews.com/sport...edssights.html

    I'm very surprised I had not seen this anywhere yet. If it's buried inside of a thread, please lock this up but I looked all over the current threads and did not see it.

    BCast has talked to Joe and asked him to get more involved. It makes it seem more and more likely that Nuxhall was right when he said he was run out a little bit before he wanted to be.

    The article said he will be doing about 30 games this year which is a lot more than last year. It said he will probably even do a few road trips.

    I for one, love this decision. We all know Joe isn't the best with words, and doesn't always keep track of everything, but he's a Cincinnati legend and the emotion he brings to the game is what I love about him. I really have missed hearing him with Marty. Don't get me wrong, Steve Stewart has done a decent job but he just doesn't get into a game like Joe does.

    I can't wait to tune and hear Nuxey's voice a little bit more this year.

    I am not in favor of this...If he comes back I hope he simply adds a story or two bout the good old days and leaves the announcing to Marty and Steve.

    As far as I know, it won't be a 3 man booth. For any given game, it will either be Marty and Joe or Marty and Steve. There will probably be a couple Steve and Joe games too, because I'm guessing, like last year, Marty will take a few off.

    I have mixed feelings about this - I love and have loved Joe (+ he's from my hometown). But like TB - I really like Steve. When I listen in the car or if the game is not televised I want someone to paint a picture and especially tell me what is happening on the field. I'm sorry, but most of the time Marty and especially Joe do not perform this duty anymore.

    I just feel so sorry for Steve - I'm sure this isn't what he signed up for. We, as Reds fans, can feel sorry for Joe for what happened a few years ago, but Steve is now being pushed around. CE is right is stating that a MLB radio position is a gold standard but it doesn't make what is happening now acceptable IMHO.

    I admit his being baffled during interviews with latin american guys, his slurred speech, and other broadcasting fumbles were a bit tedious... but it happens to the best of them.

    Sometimes, I'd rather hear a legend babble about nothing, than a young up-and-comer tell it like it is. Not everyday of course.. but every once in a while.

    I don't think that's the case at all. Most love Joe, just not his inability to broadcast baseball anymore.

    It happens to all of us, which is why there is a mandatory retirement age at most companies.

    Go out on a high and know when to fold 'em.

    Venom?

    What are you talking about?

    I like Joe, love what he used to do...love to hear him stop by the booth sometime but please do not stay the entire game...spend a little time going down memory lane and leave on a high note.

    Just my thoughts...but I have NO venom towards Joe...just respect for my memories.

    Like watching a ball player after their time is up...You still appreciate what the guy did but it's sad to see them...same thing for me with Joe...his time to leave was probably about 5 years ago...the last 5 years he was in the booth was horrible to listen to.

    He's a legend but he's not a PBP guy anymore and hasn't been for years.

    Like continuing to run an aged player who can't hit out in the cleanup spot.

    Don't care for this at all, I fear Steve is gonna leave, unless (hopefully) Marty takes those 30 games off for Joe.

    My concern as well...I really like Steve and if he leaves I hope the Reds go after Paul Keals (spelling) the play by play guy for Ohio State Football/Basketball.

    Baseball radio positions are the gold standard for sports broadcasters. I doubt you'd see someone like Steve Stewart voluntarily leave the position unless he had something else already lined up at another team.

    Personally, I can take Steve or leave him. I don't think he brings anything spectacular to the table, and I'd place his VORB at 0. He's not offensive to the ears (see: Sterling, John -- who can shove that "Thaaaaa Yahnkees win!" someplace painful) or annoyingly stupid (see: Johannsen, Brad -- whenever I listen to a Bengals game, I just hear that line from Billy Madison in my mind: "We are all dumber for having listened to that") but I don't think he's particularly amazing either.

    But, that's just my take.

    I'm glad. Last year, I listened to some of the games he did instead of watching the tv broadcast.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I would like to hear SS do the play by play, and Marty/Joe do all the other stuff.
