I think buck's okay. I wouldn't say he's the best, but he's better than average, baseball wise. As for football, him and aikman are one of the better duos, and certainly the best among the top duos trotted out by each network.Maybe I am the minority, but I think Buck and Costas are the best. As for football Buck is the best and it is not even close. So I am curious for those who do not like Buck, who would you rather have doing play by play for baseball?
I had created a thread for this, but then realized it was already being discussed here, so I removed the content of said thread since I figured it would just be pointed out that it was being discussed here anyway.Am I the only one who finds it annoying that this is an old thread, retitled? I just wasted some time figuring that out. Start new threads, people!!!!
I just heard part on a MLB Radio interview with Smoltz and was somewhat disappointed. He came off at times like an old guy who doesn't approve of them newfangled statistics and how they're impacting the game, particularly the newer models of shutdown bullpens as constructed by the Royals, Yankees and others (he brushed off this trend as unsustainable). He also complained that current team-building and managerial tactics are turning players into 'mini CEO's' who only care about their next big contract and are getting away from the goal of winning championships. Must be something in the water at Fox - I really thought that Smoltz was a guy who is more in line with the new trends in baseball.
