    He's terrible, I know that much.



    I can't believe he actually 'jinxed' the Perfect Game last night by talking about it.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I love Paul Keels' work at Ohio State but he is just brutal as a baseball play-by-play man.

    I dunno, but I'm going to explain the difference between a perfect game and a no-hitter to him if I ever see him.

    And he tempts fate again by suggesting that Rollins hasn't been hitting well since coming off the DL.

    All I know is that I was listening to Marty for the beginning of Wood's start Saturday because I wasn't near a TV. Around the fifth inning I finally got home, but I asked myself, "History could be in the making here. Do I want my memory of it to be narrated by Marty Brennaman or by Paul Keels?" The TV stayed off.

    I just hope Keels gets better. He had Votto struck out for 30 seconds on a 2nd strike. He also mentioned twice how great a pitchers duel this was in Cincinnati.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    These are my feelings also. I enjoy Keels for the Buckeye games (both hoops and football), but so far have found him sorely lacking for Reds broadcasts. I am pretty open to our different styles of announcers the Reds employ (it seems there are about a dozen of them!), but Paul's work so far has disappointed me. I went into the season thinking he would certainly be OK, and definitely was not looking to nitpick his perfromance (I generally don't as a matter of course) but for some reason he has not jibed with my "listening preferences" for baseball games and his mistakes seem to bug me more than others'. It is now to the point where I am honestly a bit disappointed when I find out he is in the booth. The positive from the TV side (admittedly completely unrelated to Paul) is that I finally got Fox Sports Ohio in HD!!

    George showing that you don't know what you got 'til it's gone!

    Cowboy and Welsh seem to be the most knowledgeable.

    Think about that for a minute!

    I dont mind Keels. He has a cozy feeling when he talks but he does say "....excuuuuuse me..." when he makes one of his oft mistakes.

    Agree, I love Keels on the Ohio State broadcasts, I think it comes down to the fact that basketball and football, don't allow the down time. The color guy comes in and breaks down the how between plays, and then he is back to PBP. In baseball, he really struggles in the time between plays. He does fine with the PBP, but he grates on me when he starts to interject. Stick to the PBP, and let the color guy add the flair.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Keels is awful. I wonder how long they signed him on for.

    I had never heard Keels until this season. My first reaction was that he was another Buckeye shill, and I've heard nothing from him to make me change that opinion. He obviously knows Reds trivia (though no more than many of us do), but his work on the mike is wholly uninspiring. Mark me down for one who prefers Thom and George over him.
