    Default Pirates Broadcast teams...

    I think they have to go. Pirates wants to change fans' attitudes, I think it's a good place to start.
    Monday while the Bucs were scoring runs in the third inning Steve Blass is blabbering about a bunch of his friends that just died. Thanks for brining these down, Steve. In case you didn't notice there's a game going on.

    Just now in the top half of the fifth as the Pirates are giving up a three-run lead the cameras find a fan in the crowd who caught two foul balls in a game last year, and Brown and Blass talk about that as Ohlendorf works out of a jam.

    From the Producer and the director to the guys in the booth... enough with all the filler. There's a **** game on.

    Sorry, had to get that off my chest.

    I don't know. Sometimes I think they're bad then I hear another team's broadcast team and it's just insanely bad. I'm convinced that good broadcasters are nearly extinct (not that many of them existed to begin with).

    They all seem like decent guys, but the are pretty tough to listen too.

    I think Walk is about the best in the game.

    Actually, I completely agree with you on Bob Walk.

    And Blass actually gave the number of runners both teams stranded in between ramblings about god know what, so I'll give him a point for that.

    But the team gets deducted two points for Greg Brown calling Garrett Jones- Garrett "GI" Jones yesterday.

    Walk is great, but, I could do without all of the predictions ("McCutcheon's going to homer here") and begging / stating the obvious (though Blass is more guilty of this), "Wouldn't a two run double down the line by Cedeno be nice right here ?"

    I do agree that Walk is great, but, I think the rest of the team is painful, especially Blass. I do have to give him credit for calling left/center "The Dread Zone"

    Blass is awful. Greg Brown, assbag.
    Bob Walk is a fantastic color man. The new guy that used to do Rockies games is ok, but he's no Frattare.
    BRING BACK FRATTARE.
