    Re: 8/19/12 - Reds vs. Cubs

    That's my favorite thing about old time announcers like Vin Scully. Even after being a rabid baseball fan for over 40 years, every game Vin comes up with things I don't know about the game and/or the players in it. Now, THAT's a real commentator. The modern announcer seems to think we want to hear about the announcers lives and what they like and dislike about the world in general. Who cares! We're baseball fans. At least talk about the guys on the field and/or the game we're watching.

    Wow, Frazier swung through a hanger right down the middle. That thing should've been crushed.

    Brilliantly executed
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Soriano cuts the ball off to keep it out of the gap, but then lets Valdez get to 2nd anyway. Laughable Cubs defense.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Yeah, talk about luck by Soriano to grab that one considering how often he botches simple plays.

    Need Cozart or Stubbs to come through here for that 4th run.

    I agree. Although Vin goes a little overboard with what college a player went to, which is relatively unimportant in baseball. He's the model that more announcers should aspire to. We won't have him forever.
