Marty says "This is a business that breeds egomaniacs, and guys think they're bigger than the business..."
With everything in life, there are things you like and things you don't like about certain people.
For awhile, I thought Marty was getting a bit arrogant, but he seems to have turned the corner. I actually think Jeff Brantley has softened Marty a bit and made him relax. I can honestly say I enjoy Marty and Brantley on the radio broadcast more than even when Joe Nuxhall was there. I loved Marty and Joe, but I think I love Cowboy and Marty better. Cowboy really has some interesting points to make about batters and pitchers and I love when he brings that stuff to his commentary. I also think they like eachother, and have fun with eachother.
I like Thom fine. I think he has a strong voice and is respectful of guests on his show. I do see the complaint most often leveled at him, where he tends to jump on a player who just made a mistake, and will hang onto that for 3 or 4 innings. But as I said, there are good and bad things about everyone.
I've even grown to like Jim Kelch now too. I just hope if they need to add someone else in the near future that it's Dan Hoard. Really love Hoard. Excellent PBP and commentator.
