ROCKIES ANNOUNCERS TAKE TIME OUT OF THEIR BROADCAST TO SHAME JOSH HAMILTON

During Wednesday night’s Rockies-Angels game, Colorado’s Root Sports Rocky Mountain broadcast crew of Drew Goodman and Jeff Huson provided even more of those hot takes, dressing Hamilton down for not thanking the Angels for paying him tens of millions of dollars *and* for not apologizing to Angels fans for… not playing well? ...

Here’s a transcript of their comments.

“Howie Kendrick is gone. You can focus on that certainly. Also, the whole Josh Hamilton situation. A lot of guys around this club have said that they haven’t fully reconciled what went down in their minds. And a lot of players, not just at the top with Arte Moreno, are upset with Josh Hamilton that he never publicly thanked the Angels for paying him a ton of money. And he obviously didn’t hold up his end up the bargain, I understand he has demons, but he never publicly acknowledged his teammates or the Angels organization at all.”
 
“And the Angels are still on the hook for about $71 million of the $80 million still owed to him. So yeah, if you want to thank anybody, that’s who you should be thanking.”

“It became more about the Rangers bringing him back, and I don’t know if Josh Hamilton didn’t think it through or got poor advice, but in his situation, in my opinion, you need to spend some time apologizing to the Angels fans, to his teammates, and thanking the organization for what they ended up doing, not only initially, but sending him back to Texas”

Feisty Bert Blyleven Trashes Detroit

Circle the Fox Theater, Bert!

While today’s Twins-Tigers game was in a rain delay, former Twins pitcher and current analyst Bert Blyleven updated his Twitter followers with photos of the field, and took some cracks at Detroit’s expense in the process.

Guess I ruffled some feathers with my last tweet about download Detroit! Guess all you that responded haven’t seen how ugly your downtown is
