    Marty Brennaman

    Is Marty still considered a full time employee? Have the Reds have tired of his act and are phasing him out? I don't know why but the revolving wheel of radio broadcasters just drive me crazy.

    I prefer Marty, but why does the revolving wheel drive you crazy? I don't know why you'd let it affect you to that extent.

    It was comfortable to turn on the radio and listen to Marty and Joe, now you never know if you get Marty and the Cowboy, Kelch and the Cowboy, Welsh and Mary, Marty and Flynn, Kelch and Flynn, Casey and Marty, Kelch and Casey and the worst of the worst Marty and Thom. I

    He's getting older, so he is working less.

    Don't matter,the ''Voice of the Reds'' should work.Vin Scully was calling the Dodgers when they were in Brooklyn,and still calling them fulltime in L.A.Alone too nonetheless.

    He is getting older and working less.

    Personally I think Marty makes the best calls of any baseball broadcaster I have heard, including Vin Scully. I also love it when he gets angry with the Reds. Usually he echo's my feelings.

    Oh yeah, "And This One Belongs To The Reds!" is absolutely goosebump raising when Marty says it after a 9th inning dramatic win.

    Marty is the best in the business. I wish it was always Marty and the Cowboy. I don't care what anyone says, I love Brantley on the radio.

    We're spoiled and it's always going to be that way.

    We had Marty and Joe for all those years. How do you top that?

    I can tell you Chris welsh is ok on the tv but is terrible on the radio. Had to turn it off last night. Cowboy and Kelch are pretty good together on the raido. I agree though I don't like the constant changing of the guard. Let kelch cowboy and marty stay on the radio let the rest on the tv and be done with it.

    I like that the Reds have multiple personalities in the TV and radio booths. I enjoy different perspectives. I long ago tired of Marty's act though.

    I shouldn't let the cat out of the bag but all of those voices are done by one computer by the name of Sybil.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
