    Almost a Sunday Special lineup, but not quite. Close, though.

    I don't see anything wrong with the lineup, I kinda like it.

    Today I'm watching the TV broadcast, and yesterday I listened to the radio broadcast as I was travelling home from Athens after watching the Bobcats thrash the Kansas Jayhawks.

    I have to say that my preferred broadcast duos are:

    TV: Jim Day & Chris Welsh
    Radio: Jim Kelch & Jeff Brantley

    I'm ready to completely separate from the Brennaman clan.

    Jim Day is likable enough but his PBP chops need improved. Odd phrasing and pacing and a lack of smooth transitions to Welsh. I'd prefer bland Kelch to Day right now but let's see if Day can improve.

    I have Kelch working radio with Brantley because he and Cowboy seem to have good chemistry. JD is inexperienced, but he comes across as sincere, and I think he will improve.

    The Reds' TV crew only ranks about average when compared to other MLB clubs I've watched. Lots of bad ones out there. On radio, since I cannot see the action, I don't like Kelch because his voice just irritates me so much, I can't listen, and although Brantley is improving his pbp, he is best as a color man. Marty is Marty, but I really know what's going on in the game when he's not pontificating about one thing or another. I enjoy guys that entertain me because I'm only listening when I'm in the car. John Sterling of the Yankees ranks high for me too.

    Took 23 pitches but a scoreless first for Bob with 2 strikeouts and a walk.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.
