2012-11-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you talk about the insane awesomeness of the final Romo World Series pitch to Miggy?! I was sitting at work with the tv on above my head and I squealed like a little Justin Bieber fan after seeing that pitch. Everyone looked at me like I was bat-shit nuts (which I actually might be). So what is a Romo? And what makes him so terrifyingly awesome?
(Will from Rochester)
He's an enigma wrapped in a paradox stuffed into a Doritos Locos Tacos shell!

Nah, it's no mystery. It's all about that ridiculous slider. I've never seen anything like it. Mike Krukow talks about it every game, but he's somehow able to throw it without the "red dot" appearing. Hitters can identify a slider by the red dot, but if there's no red dot, their brains say "that's not a slider," and they swing at it -- and miss. So if you're a RHH and you're looking for the slider, Romo can throw an 87 MPH FB over the outer third and you just sit there looking like a big dummy. Like Miguel Cabrera did. And when you do that to one of the best hitters in baseball, you're a pretty, pretty, pret-tayyyy good pitcher. (Ian Miller)
2011-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite broadcasters to listen to/watch on TV? Let's say top three.
(Staufferinthetrunk from San Jose, CA)
1. Jon Miller
2. Mike Krukow
3. Duane Kuiper

and that's not to slight Dave Flemming, the fourth member of the Giants crew. I'm a Giants fan, so that's an easily discounted opinion, but the Giants have had such great broadcasters for the past two decades (Hank Greenwald before them) that I can hardly listen to other broadcasts.

Of course, I do listen to other broadcasts, five or six some days, and my favorites outside of those guys are probably Ron Darling (Mets) as a color guy and Len Casper (Cubs) as a play-by-play guy. Among announcers without jobs, I really liked Josh Lewin before the Rangers fired him, and I thought Dennis Eckersley did an tremendous job filling in for Jerry Remy earlier this year. Dennis Eckersley should have a full-time job.

The Rangers have the best reporter-in-the-stands guy. The Red Sox have the on-field microphone most likely to pick up profanity. Minnesota has the best center-field camera. The Giants don't use a pitch-tracker, ever, which is obnoxious, but they have a particularly good Coors Light Freeze Cam. The Angels' announcers are the best in a blow-out, because they get silly. The Rays have the best announcing crew if you want to pretend that Mark McGrath is describing a baseball game to you. The Phillies have the most fans who wave at the camera from behind home plate. The Marlins have the lowest production values -- I wish I'd recorded the time that they interviewed John Dewan in the middle of an inning to talk about the Marlins' defense, but it was a phone interview so he had no idea what was going on in the game. It was about unfollowable as a pre-taped call-in talk show.
