I'd also prefer if he didn't rail hard on players, especially the young guys when they aren't perfect.
A little criticism is fine, but constantly bashing the same players all year is tiresome.
Again, on the clinching game day, Marty made a huge stink about Bruce asking Dusty to play, and then when Bruce started the game with 2K's and grounding into a DP, Marty rode his rearend so hard, saying he needs to back it up, etc. Then when Bruce hits the HR, Marty makes the game call nicely, but where's the apology for dogging Bruce the entire game?
That's not going out on a limb. That's just being a grouch and bashing people.
Every year I find myself listening to fewer and fewer games. I used to listen to every game on the radio. Even last year, when they were contending, Marty was so bad, I could only stomach about 180 innings, spread out over multiple games.. Marty makes me turn off the radio. If other people enjoy listening to him criticize young pitchers for not "Trying hard enough" to locate a pitch perfectly, that's their choice.
