but marty was crushing votto in the snippet
my memory isn't the best but I remember him barking at the guy in the booth with him who was saying votto was drawing a lot of walks, 'he's not paid to walk, he's paid to hit' and basically dismissing any notion that votto was contributing offensively
How Hawk gets continually pegged as the worst announcer alive when these guys are around is a real mystery.
When Marty sticks to describing the game, he's still very good. There's a reason he won the Frick Award.
He's twice divorced, but it's been several years since the second one. Can't say if that's the cause.
Marty Brennaman is really, really, awful
As a Cubs fan, I'm shamed to say I've always liked Thom's voice.
Didn't they used to say similar things about Ted Williams?
Votto has a .526 OB%, and a .926 OPS while struggling at the plate.
It has always, always, always been idiotic.
A question for the Reds fans and HW ... is he hitting a lot of ground balls the other way to foil the shift?
He's getting on base 50% with this approach so anyone faulting him for it is a moron that doesn't understand how runs are scored.
And, yeah, 1 HR in 181 PA is time to panic.*
if you're one of the 5 best hitters in the league, and the guy behind you in a big spot is terrible - do you think that the stud hitter should pay NO mind to who is behind him?
now can we get back to the actual at-bat? should the stud hitter expand his zone by 0.5 pct, or should he try even harder than usual to draw a walk so he can show up his GM? or should he, at that moment, focus more on what helps the team win the game?
