    Marty To Be Off A Few Days (Nuxie to fill in)

    I heard on the Tracy Jones Show tonight that Marty will be off a few games after the All-Star break. It looks like Joe Nuxhall will "PINCH HIT" those games. Maybe he will change the Reds tide for the better. Tracy did not say how many games Marty B. will be off.

    Besides "Rounding 3rd Heading For Home", my favorite Nuxhall line is when a pitcher bats he says, "If you swing the bat, you're dangerous".

    Marty will be back after the Rockies series.

    He and M. Lancaster discussed each other's vacation plans during the 2nd inning last night because there was nothing else to talk about.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    What happened? Did he tear a rotator cuff patting himself on the back?

    I knew it was not so good concerning Joe's fill in record. Things even out.....

    The Reds also play .200 ball when I go to GABP, but that's not my fault, right?

    Marty's had this break planned for awhile.

    Do most team's play by play guy take week off somewhere in the season or is Marty just a prima donna?

    I think Marty just did it to give Joe broadcast time. Marty does not want 3 people in the booth.

    No one wants three in the booth. No, I think Marty wants the time off for golf. Despite what Steve Stewart says publically, he's really irritated that Joe won't go away and I can't blame him.

    John Allen also told Marty last year that if he would like to start taking some vaction time off, then go ahead. He'd never done it previously, so he decided to do it. He's earned it.

    He likes taking his vacations during homestands because he still enjoys travelling to the different cities during the season.

    Is this typical of other announcers Marty's age? Do most teams give their 60 something guys breaks from the 162 game season?
