    Merged: Marty says Nux will work Monday (3/27) / Marty Deserves Credit

    Marty: Nux will work Monday
    BY JOHN KIESEWETTER | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

    Joe Nuxhall finds out Tuesday if he’ll return to the Reds radio booth for Opening Day.

    “That would really be a thrill,” says Nuxhall, 77, forced into retirement after the 2004 season. He missed his first Opening Day broadcast last year after calling 38 consecutive openers.

    Nuxhall meets Tuesday with Reds COO John Allen to discuss his 20-game broadcast schedule. Nuxhall says nobody has asked him to participate in Monday’s broadcast – but long-time broadcast partner Marty Brennaman says Nux will work with him again and Steve Stewart on Monday.

    “Joe’s going to work Opening Day. Steve’s going to do half the game, and Joe’s going to do half the game,” Brennaman said.

    That was news to Nuxhall – and Rob Butcher, Reds media relations director.

    “If Marty says Joe will be in the booth on Opening Day, I believe him,” Butcher said.

    A WLW-AM (700) promotion saying Nuxhall will be part of the Opening Day radio team also traces its way back to Brennaman.

    Darryl Parks, WLW-AM operations director, says “that’s what we’ve been told from Sarasota” by Dave Armbruster, the station staffer who has been producing Brennaman’s spring training game broadcasts.

    Nuxhall’s return to Opening Day fits the “power of tradition” theme of Robert Castellini, the Reds new chief executive officer.

    “The Ol’ Lefthander” has been associated with the club for 62 years, making his debut in 1944 at age 15, the youngest player ever to appear in a Major League Baseball game.

    Twenty regular season games will be significantly more than last year. He’ll do at least one game in the new St. Louis Busch Stadium, which will be the 59th ballpark he has played in or broadcast from, he says. He will do 10 games with Brennaman, and 10 games with Stewart, Brennaman says.

    “Right now Steve and I are scheduled to take off 10 games each. I really don’t want to take off any more than that. I couldn’t stand it. I’d go crazy,” Brennaman said.

    Marty deserves a lot of credit

    I think Marty deserves credit here for letting Nuxey do the Opening Day broadcast. Step aside and let the ole lefthander have a little fun. Good job Marty.

    Nuxhall to work opener?
    Ol' Lefthander to be back in the booth for 20 games this year

    So is Marty taking the day off or are Steve and Joe going to rotate that middle innings position that day?

    Steve and Joe will rotate. MARTY isn't really sacrificing much. Big suprise there.

    But of course, he hates his job and doesn't want to do it anymore....

    Re: Marty deserves a lot of credit

    OK, really, I'm not a huge Marty fan, but the bashing of him around here is getting out of hand.

    I didn't find anything in that article that warranted criticism. When he makes a boneheaded comment on the air, have at it and call him on it. But this? Come on, it's a bit much.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Shouldn't Steve received the credit instead of Marty? What the heck is Marty sacrificing?

    Nevermind. I re-read the article. I'm stupid.

    That's not Marty's fault, it's the writer of the article's fault.

    But someone will probably try and turn it into Marty's fault...

    I find this telling. I guess Marty does what he wants.

    That's kind of what I was thinking too, which totally goes along with his attitude on the air.

    If Kiesewitter wanted to convey that all three would be in the booth on Opening Day, which I think will happen, he did a poor job of it. I think all three will be in there because it would be a bigger story if Marty didn't do the game.
