    Thom has always reminded me of the Burt Ward version of Robin.

    Big fan of Thom. I think he does a great job.

    I think Keels would be okay if he actually showed some enthusiasm from time to time. There have been some pretty enormous plays this year and he will act as if they are no big deal. He is much better suited for Bengals pre-season football games, IMO.

    Welsh is the nuts. Love that guy.

    That's my big beef with him. He doesn't need to go nuts but He calls a home run the same as he calls a ground out to 2nd.

    I prefer the lack of emotion to constant righteous indignation and stories about golf outings and celebrity sightings.

    True, although I think it'll be much easier for Keels to inject a little emotion than it will for thom to stop being a jerk.

    I think Thom has been Foxized. He's been doing football and baseball for Fox for so long I think his constant babbling carries over.

    Honestly, I tend to tune a lot of what these guys say out. My biggest criticism of Thom is that he tends to babble on about one thing or another and continues to harp on it while ignoring what's going on on the field.

    Like I said, he makes me want to punch him in the throat just to get him to shut up.

    and I'm a pacifist.
