Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

I don't think John Sterling has ever been more annoying as he has been tonight. (I am blacked out from watching the game live, because the Royals are involved and I live in their territory. So it's radio-only tonight.) Some snippets of Sterlingisms from tonight's game:

- "Something short of Grand-ish"

- TWO instances of "An A-bomb from A-Rod"

- Probably the first baseball announcer I've ever heard who used the expression "béte noire", although not two minutes later he followed it up with "Bless their pea-pickin' little hearts"

- "The bases are bulging with Bombers".
