2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day OneCan we just bring back Vin Scully, Joe Garagiola, Bob Costas and Tony Kubek and put all the post-season games back on NBC? (John Perrotto)
2009-10-15 17:00:002009 NLCS Game One (Phillies/Dodgers)strupp (Madison): Too much to hope we get an inning called by Vin Scully while these three idiots are... you know what, I can't even think of a punishment I'd like to see these three have.

One of the great things about MLB.com having out-o'-market games available on the net is that one gets to tune in Dodgers TV broadcasts. I really enjoy that. I feel very bad that I took Scully for granted back in my teenage years when you could hear him weekend on Game of the Week, but I blame that on Joe Garagiola, who always made me feel like nails were being driven into my skull.
