    Yeah, that's my biggest issue with him. I know he gets paid to talk, but every now and then, I wish he'd shut up for just a little bit. He's constantly trying to engage Larkin or Welsh about something and it sometimes feels forced. I think he has a fine personality overall for broadcasting. But like you said, he needs to learn that it's ok to sit back at times and let the game itself do the talking.

    Yes, the greatest failing so far is this, I wonder though calling games from the home field when your team is on the road will create more empty sound when you try and allow space into the broadcast. No fans to fill the space makes it hard, little fans in surrounding seats at home games as well. Hopefully that will change over time, space to breath is needed and I'm betting that Sadak will be a pro and study his tapes and adjust

    I don't mind Sadak getting excited at all.
    I've heard too many guys calling games the past few years that sounded like they would rather be anywhere in the world other than a baseball game.

    As I mentioned upthread, Welsh isn't easing back. He's going to be working just as many games as he has in previous seasons, about 135.

    Brantley is contracted to work 25 games on TV. Welsh will work the other 55 road games on TV. (One road game is slated for FOX)

    Welsh will work on radio when Brantley is on TV and when Brantley is on vacation.

    Welsh will also sit at the TV pre-game show & TV post-game show desk for select home games taking the seat of Sam LeCure, which we saw during the first homestand. I'm guessing this will be for about 30 of the 81 home games.

    This will give Welsh about 25 games off to equal the number Brantley has off.

    He will work just as many games as he did last year, he just won't be in the TV booth for nearly as many.

    Here is a summary of where I predict Welsh will be working this season:
    TV (all road): 55 games
    Radio (half home, half road): 50 games
    Pre/post-game desk (all home): 30 games
    Vacation (all home): 25 games
