You are 100% wrong in my opinion. Before the show began I would have agreed with you on Mazz, I would have thought he would add nothing to any sport other than baseball. But to be perfectly honest he has been fantastic on the show with Felger. He plays off him so well and calls Felger a fraud when he doesn't believe what he is actually saying. Mazz actually helps keep Felger from going off the deep end on a lot of topics, and they disagree so much that it actually creates good discussion instead of screaming like it does on the Big Show.
I totally agree. You can tell that Mazz has spent a lot of time "brushing up" on the other major sports.
And I also agree that Felger and Mazz have very good chemistry with the whole crew. I like how the producer and the sports update guy interact with them on a regular basis, and actually add something to the conversation.
Edit: One more thing, as you mentioned, Mazz is a great foil to Felger. As proven towards the tail end of his 890 days, when Felger doesn't have a co-host, he can go "off the deep end" and involve himself in irrelevant arguments. Massarotti does a good job in reeling him back in, and keeping that stuff to an acceptable level.
For example, yesterday they spent the first few segments talking about Manu Ginobili attacking a bat in San Antonio. It was entertaining for a few segments, but I wouldn't have been able to take 3 hours of it. Mazz did a nice job in changing the topic when he needed to.
