Re: MLB Season Discussion - 2013

Normally I think Keith is a pretty good color guy. And he has awesome comic chemistry with Gary (some of their banter in the booth is absolutely hilarious).

But this "dead soldier" remark is going to bite him in the ass, as well it should. Not only is it a pretty fucked-up thing to say in general, there's more: 1) He said it on Memorial Day, and 2) Keith's own father was a soldier (in World War II)!

And while we're on the subject of dickish moves by announcers: Anyone who listened to the Indians/Reds game the other night knows that the Indians radio guy really needs to lighten the fuck up. Sure, Chapman threw at Swisher's head, possibly even intentionally (the first one was WAY over Swish's head, the second one came thisclose), but the Indians announcer sounded like he was gonna burst a blood vessel...
