    I'll agree with you about the lack of needless side-stories during the game. It definitely was refreshing to hear them focus on the game.

    And while I'm not a fan of hyperbole, I still like to hear them put a little emotion into their calls. It was like they weren't even at the game. Their impartiality was good, but their delivery was bland.

    Anyway...the game itself is the most important thing.

    I understand the bland comment...Orsillo and Simpson arent going to inflate the "wow" meter...but during the playoffs, I must admit I view it like umpires...as long as they dont screw up and dont make the game about themselves; theyve done a good job....I must admit I am interested in what announcing combos the other series will bring....

    Yeah, the sidestories, or nuggets are really stupid in my eyes. I love watching a game, for just the game. I don't care who will be with a team next year.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.
