    He gone. Where? Probably to Minnesota () for another promising arm the Twins have given up on.

    I don't know what it is. Just that I feel that this team has consigned itself to losing. It's been a losing team for going on eight years now, but one of the reasons last year's (losing) team was so fun was because it didn't seem to have that air about it. Lacking talent, yes, but lacking a desire to win...not quite. I can't explain it, I probably shouldn't try.
    Winning just enough to lose... or no "killer" instinct. And it has been going on for 6 seasons... well ever since 2000.

    Well, for starters, I don't think anyone ever positioned the idea that every other broadcaster was baseball nirvana. Also, the big difference here was the Mets crew was belittling their team's opponent, not their own squad. Brenneman berates his own team on a regular basis.

    That is interesting, isn't it?

    Plenty of people have bragged about how Marty is "unlistenable" and other broadcasts are on such a higher plane. Sure, no one has typed the exact words, "Marty suxx, every other broadcast team rulz!" but over and over it's been positioned that the other teams feed is 100% better than Marty. Well, I just don't hear it. And I've been listening to plenty of other teams feeds lately just to check them out. (well, that and I got MLB.tv premium without reading the blackout rules. Since I can not get any Reds games I figured I better watch a lot of other teams ballgames to make up for it). I've listened to both TV and radio feeds to check out a range of different folks.

    Guess what? Everytime I listen to another teams feed I hear the same things. It wasn't just that the Mets team last night was ripping on the Reds. They were just as condesencding and snotty as Marty can be. They made factual errors. They made goofy comments that had nothing to do with the game. Guess what, they even dared to focus on batting average (gasp!). You are telling me that Keith Hernandez isn't every bit as egotistical and opinionated as Marty? Please. Keith even commented that finding statistics on baseball is "difficult". Huh?

    Look, there's already a couple of threads banging on Marty and we've been around and around about it. There's never going to be changing anyones mind because it all boils down to subjective tastes in what people expect from a broadcast.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I have to admit, I wasn't a fan of listening to Hernandez last night.

    Flyer, obviously my reply is late in coming, but I think Ross did about as well as could be expected on that play. His left foot is on the correct side of the plate, pointing toward the runner--just like it should be (IMO). It was a great slide by Milledge; I had to look at it several times to see that he actually touched the plate on the back side. Just an excellent slide.

    Oh yeah, Hamilton throws him out by about 10 feet.
