    that's what I do when I'm at work and can't watch. I don't listen(I could) instead I follow on gametracker ... I tuned out the broadcasts almost entirely a couple of years ago.

    Getting excited hoping the Reds succeed is good.

    Getting excited hoping the Reds fail is not good.

    That was my take too. Marty thought he smelled another Reds' collapse and seemed to relish in it. That's what was causing his excitement. He was hoping he'd be able to say the Reds lost the 6th game in a row, and they are pathetic because the Cubs "gave" them 5 unearned runs, etc, etc.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Hogwash!

    Marty's a fan and he knows as well as you and I that 9 runs today and no runs yesterday means a win and a loss. It befuddles the mind that this team can score 9 so effortlessly one day and 0 the next. It's perplexing to many of us, marty included.

    Love how people are ascribing what they *think* Marty is thinking and then reporting it as fact. Good times.

    The people who don't care for Marty will interprete nearly anything he says as bitter and mean. The people who like Marty will likely interpreate most of what he says as just that, what he said and nothing more. No big shock there.

    It was funny last night, however, for all those who complain that they get lost when Marty is calling the game and they just can't possibly keep up. Flipped on the radio last night and within a minute I knew the score, what inning it was, who was at bat, what the count was and who was on base.

    Maybe Marty just did that because he hates the Reds.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    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

    Excellent post and as someone else said, "spot on."

    Yep. I actually disagree with Marty often and don't care much for the times he's over-critical of players, but I still think he does an excellent play-by-play. I've been out of town the last couple nights so I had to listen to the game, yet found it very enjoyable - especially since all to often I've been forced to deal with Grande's PBP/description of the game (seriously, George, not every fly ball is a "bloop").
