    anybody see John Smoltz call the Red Sox/Yanks game with Bob Costas?

    Am I correct that this was the first game Smoltz ever called? I think he's going to be an excellent color guy, and the pairing with Costas worked well. Hopefully they won't ruin him at ESPN and convince him he has to talk just to fill up space.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    I caught a couple of innings and agree. A wonderful paring and (for at least those innings) a well called game.
    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

    Smoltz might be my favorite on the MLB Network. Insightful and well spoken. He's a natural.

    Smoltz and Costas are a great pairing. MLB Network is the greatest thing to happen to television since cameras.
