If you listen to say all 3 games of series he'll eventually repeat the player notes he has 2-3 times, it's the pain of being solo in the booth, older than a grandpa and having more names in his head than you can imagine.
That said I listen to his broadcasts all the time, understand him fine (he's not Harry Caray, he isn't slurring) and appreciate his stories, his knowledge and his love of the game. Once he's gone there will be more vanilla in the world.
Why must he be alone in the booth?
And I like vanilla, mister!
