    seriously, if Tracy Jones were to get the job, I would not listen to games on the radio that werent on tv. I would follow on mlb.com gamecast first.

    If the Reds keep winning, The Tracy Jones Show will be interesting this weekend. (Friday and Sunday)

    Maybe "Rod" and his son "JR." will make the trip to Pittsburgh.

    I listen to every Reds game, always have.

    That would come to a Screeching Halt with Marty and Tracy calling PBP.

    Tracey Jones would be too busy proclaiming that he "played the game" to actually tell listeners what was going on in the game he was supposed to be broadcasting.
    Jones is such an incompetent egotistical moron that I am surprised he hasn't already been hired by ESPN.

    I think Tracy Jones and the Banana Phone crowd are made for each other. But having Tracy on during the actual playing of the game, eewwww.

    Re: Tracy Jones Makes On Air Offer To Reds

    I generally advocate civility on this board, even when discussing players, management, etc., so I have reconsidered my prior post wherein I called Tracy Jones an incompetent egotistical moron. I would like to amend that post---I left off " pompous jackass."
    Last month I listended to Jones's radio show while I was driving home from a Reds game with my two older sons. I lost track of how many times Jones announced that he "played the game" as the justification for why he believed that listeners should apparently believe whatever he said without question.
    Yes, Jones "played the game" in the majors. He also played the game poorly. Bob Costas and Vin Scully and Marty Brennanman and a host of other announcers didn't "play the game" but they do know how to be a broadcaster and have displayed some talent for the job.

    Back in 1992, I had several opportunities to talk with a sports director of a radio station that carried Reds games. He told me that he had been told that the Colorado Rockies had tried to hire Marty to be their broadcaster. They wanted him to add some credibility to their inaugural broadcasting team. I was told that the Reds counter offered with $750,000 and Marty stayed. If I remember right, he had heard that Marty hadnt seriously considered the Rockies' offer but the Reds didnt want to take a chance on losing him.

    Marty would have loved what the altitude would do for his golf game.

    Wow, life (and baseball) certainly has been good to Marty, you wouldn't be able to tell by the way he broadcasts the games sometimes.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    If you're not good enough get paid $200,000 for playing baseball for the Reds, I guess you try to get them to pay you that for announcing, huh Tracer? He's terrible at both.
