Not sure how I feel about Reynolds on-air, but Verducci is pretty good.
Verducci has a nice voice, but he waxes poetic about whatever random bullshit pops into his head. He and Reynolds will just pop up with the most inane opinions. Verducci's bad, real bad.

Enjoy endless meandering platitudes in place of actual analysis, I guess.

What's with the recent trend of three-man booths? Is the extra guy really needed?

We've had that already since 1996. So how will this be any worse than Tim "Mojo" McCarver?

Tim has an album out, by the way. God, how I wish I was kidding.

Yep. Old man McCarver used to go on and on especially with the Cardinals and Phillies. I didn't mind all the love for the Cardinal but when it came to the Phillies

Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014

Kris Medlen exits a game with a "forearm strain," which is generally code for "oh, shit, he might need Tommy John surgery again."

In response, Fredi Gonzalez literally said, "Thank God we signed Freddy Garcia."

Those words were a thing somebody said in the year of our Lord 2014.

Kruk reminds me of a cross between a border collie and those "What's in YOUR wallet?" guys. My favorite memory of him is being pwned by Randy Johnson in the '93 ASG.

Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014

Medlen's MRI revealed damage to his elbow ligament, so he's having further tests. If he's down, that leaves the Braves rotation with:

Minor (hurt)
Teheran
Beachy (hurt)
Wood
Garcia (old, shitty)

Ouch.

Yeah it's ok, they signed Gavin Floyd just in case this might happen. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH

Update: Apparantly they are going to go make a push for Ervin Santana. Santana is only interested in pursuing a one year deal at the moment. I really don't want to pay that guy a ton of money for one year but if they get a manageable deal in place that could help. Beachy's injury isn't very serious but he wasn't exactly lights out when he returned last year. There is always David Hale who might have to put on the big boy pants early.

FOX has announced its baseball coverage lineups. Joe Buck, Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci will be their A-team for this season; they're also going to do their studio coverage in-house again with Kevin Burkhardt as host and Frank Thomas, Gabe Kapler, CJ Nitkowski and Eric Karros as analysts. Ryan Field will be the fill-in host when Burkhardt is working for SNY. They'll also produce a Baseball Tonight competitor in MLB Whiparound Show with the same analysts and Chris Myers and Ryan Field hosting.

Ouch. I almost wish McCarver were back.
I enjoyed McCarver (before his stroke)

Hey, Pineda looked pretty good the other day.

At least he didn't break!

I'm more worried about CC and Nova.
