Awful Announcing: Jonah Keri melts down over a concert on his flight

Alas, the knee defender is useless against annoying rock bands:

rantland’s Jonah Keri is one of my favorite baseball writers working today. On Wednesday, Keri was on a Southwest flight to Denver. The band Lifehouse was on the same flight.

All hell proceeded to break loose.

Keri - Wayward Marlins Take Aim at Sustained Success

How did the Marlins go from a frequently penny-pinching club that couldn’t find the money to sign future first-ballot Hall of Famer Miguel Cabrera to a team that just paid Giancarlo Stanton $325 million before making a slew of other offseason moves intended to turn Miami into a consistent contender? After 22 tumultuous years for the franchise, why do the Marlins now believe they are financially secure enough to pay their best player a third of a billion dollars and talented enough to compete for a playoff spot — not only in 2015, but also for years to come?

These and other pressing questions on the next exciting episode of Miami Nice!
