Fox Sports Net adds web features to Reds TV broadcasts

Like Brennamanna from heaven…

Here’s something that could make your experience watching the Cincinnati Reds on TV even better.

No, it’s not a guaranteed 10-game winning streak. Or even three, for that matter, which the Reds haven’t done since June 15.

This comes to you courtesy of Fox Sports Net Ohio, the Reds’ TV broadcast network. It just launched Game Connect.

It features live stats for each player, including batter vs. pitcher career info. It also offers a built-in Twitter feed, so you can satisfy your craving to talk baseball with your fellow fans. And it has a setup that allows fans to interact with the broadcasters doing the game. So if you have a problem with one of Thom Brennaman’s comments, you don’t have to limit yourself to shouting at the TV anymore.

I have a feeling that feature will be disabled shortly.

Does it have a whine feature so that the Reds fans can whine along with the Reds players and announcers?

Heck, Babylon 5 had that feature 15 years ago! Rookies.
