    Statements repeated by announcers that drive you bananas...

    For me, it's when announcers say, as if they've witnessed magic, "How many time does a guy who's made a great play to end an inning, leadoff the next!"

    I got your answer guys: roughly one out of nine times a great play is made to end an inning.

    That one has always annoyed me as well.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    "Get 'em on....get 'em over...get 'em in"

    I long for a permanant "bleep" over that expression. Or at least the middle part.

    I really hate when Martys says: "And this one belongs to the Reds!"

    I hate it when there is a runner on second with one out and Grande says the batters job is to hit a ball to the right side and move the runner to third.

    I hate double plays and the announcers saying "at least he made contact"

    I have mentioned that exact thing in several threads. It drives me absolutely nuts. How much does GG really know about baseball?

    I like the call: "Its deep drive to <insert left, center or right> field!", on a ball that does not even make it to the warning track.

    Would not a deep drive be at least to warning track or wall... or maybe a home run?

    Do you remember SI's "As So Often Happens" April Fool's joke a few years ago? They invented all kinds of fake stats about this and made up quotes attributed to baseball experts. A lot of people wrote in to dispute the "research." Classic.

    Welcome to (name of stadium)!
    One out in the inning.
    One run crosses the plate.
    How about that.
