I hope for their sakes that he has gotten at least some of the blandness out of his schtick. A perfectly capable announcer but it was always like listening to a national announcer not taking sides -- i.e. pretty much the polar opposite of Harry. And never shy about pointing out the family heritage.

Nepo baby.

Fun fact, per Wiki: "Chip's twin sons, Christopher and Stefan, attended the University of Georgia, and began their professional sportscasting career with the Amarillo Sod Poodles." Presumably, one or both of them will be calling MLB games by the late 2020s or so...

This is good. I like it when people I hate go to work for organizations I hate. Helps me to keep focus.

What #4 said, better than I ever could.

JFC, couldn't they have just hired that ChatGPT thing?

Cards fans...don't get too excited any time "THAT BALL IS DRIVEN...".

Is there a limit on how old you can be and still go by "Chip"?
   9. Howie Menckel Posted: January 24, 2023 at 11:03 PM (#6114324)
well, how about "Skip?"

Not a fan of this, Chip, Skip and Harry all sucked as announcers throughout my baseball life. (Harry was good maybe prior to 1980, but never really a fan of his when I was old enough to pay attention)

I bag on McLaughlin, but I was kinda hoping that the team would just go with a cavalcade of announcers for this season, and see if he gets his life back on track, and if so, rehire him. (Assuming we weren't able to get one of the actual good announcers out there)

Basically, this is excellent news. When individuals I dislike work for companies I despise, that's good for me. It aids with my concentration.

Well, at least St. Louis has John Rooney on radio. He was great when he was with the White Sox.
