Palmer reminds me of Tom Seaver when he did Yankees and Mets games; he doesn't suffer fools gladly. Which is why both were Hall of Fame pitchers.
The worst offender of all has to be the Giants. They have a 30-something woman who talks like a seventh grader as she fantasizes about clipping a lock of Buster Posey's hair or having Matt Cain over for her next slumber party. It is truly sickening.
i think that I was extremely fortunate to listen to Vinny during the spring and summer and Chick during the fall and winter.
I used to love the Celtics' Johnny Most for many reasons**, but nobody but NOBODY could top his whining when the Celtics had a foul called against them.
I will agree with this. Her name is "Amy G," and I completely fail to see her purpose.
I think I am also in the minority with regards to the Giants broadcasting team as I like Fleming and Kuiper is fine but Krukow with the homerism can be grating at times. Also I think Miller has lost his fastball as there are times that he ignores the action on the field while in the middle of a story.
I also like Korach for the A's but the other guys are interchangable as far as I am concerned with the exception of Fosse who probably needs to go at this point.
The Mariners have a version of this called Amy Mentink and she has all the same shortcomings. She also does this insufferable thing on EVERY bumper piece she does from the studio where she says something that does not even border on humorous, then does this over the top act of trying to hold in her own glee over her cleverness. It angers me that she makes the idiotic comment to start, that she thinks its so funny, and that she makes an act of showing us how funny she thinks she is.
I've got to say that as an A's fan, I feel insanely lucky to have Ken Korach on the radio. He's right up there with Jon Miller, Bill King and Hank Greenwald for Bay Area radio legends. Just a great PBP guy, with just the right touch, enthusiastic calls in the right place that will make the hair stand up on your arms, but thoughtful and accurate. Really balanced in his coverage. He's just a gem.
She's a relatively recent phenomenon (maybe since 2012, because I don't remember her that year), and she makes the games noticeably worse.
A guy like Don Drysdale could come along, and he was quite good after a rough first year or two with the Angels, but he sounded totally ordinary in that town.
What I do remember is Scully criticizing Hojo and Davey Johnson in game 6, including when he thought he was off camera going into break. It wreaked of a lack of knowledge on his part of how the Mets played all year long.
