Comments on Awful Announcing: Rangers’ Announcer Tom Grieve Doesn't Seem To Like Richie Sexson

Grieve doesn't usually go off like that. He is very mild-mannered, and even apologized during the broadcast, saying that he was embarassed by his rant. He even said that he believed that once Sexson thought about what he had done, he would agree that he overreacted.

As far as "homer" announcers, Grieve does a good job conveying insight that the casual baseball fan might not pick up on

Tom Grieve is a huge homer. And considering he played and was the GM for the Rangers, why shouldn't he be? Not to mention this is a regional broadcast so it's not like he was being a huge homer to a national audience.

He may have gone overboard a bit in the heat of the moment...but knocking him for being a homer is pretty weak considering it was the Rangers' broadcast and Rangers'

Seems stupid that people are talking about Sexson and protecting their homer announcers on a site called AWEFUL ANNOUNCING. Jeez people take a clue.

Everyone can see that Sexson is a douche (that's how you spell it if you aren't from Texas). The point is these guys saw one frustrated idiotic act and are now making him out to be the "worst of the worst." These idiot announcers are the

No, Grieve was right on target with his remarks. When you act like a doosh as Sexson did Thursday night, you deserve every ounce of ridicule that comes your way.

@ anon 3:28: That was '03, and this Sexson pitch was even more out over the plate than the Manny one. Thankfully Don Zimmer wasn't on hand for this one.

Reminds me of the pitch to Manny that started the big brawl in I think 04.

2008-05-09T14:34:00.000-04:00

Wow, Sexson comes off as a big pansy in this, because that pitch was nowhere near hitting him. I definitely agree with whoever said he should get an extra-long suspension out of this, because his actions were essentially unprovoked. Regardless of what happened earlier in the game, you can't charge the mound on THAT pitch.

But the announcers have no reason to knock Sexson's career

2008-05-09T14:21:00.000-04:00

depends on your definition of "drilled." the radar gun on SportsCenter read 95 mph on the pitch that hit Kinsler. same for Laird, too.

and for all the Rangers announcers "homer" talk, the Mariners beat writer on mlb.com decided it was crucial to his story to note that "TV replays showed Kinsler never made much of an effort to avoid the fastball."

why should he? if he's getting

2008-05-09T14:05:00.000-04:00

Let's be serious about "drilled" -- Ian Kinsler wasn't exactly hit very hard (although the fact that his HBP came after a homer makes it more suspicious).

2008-05-09T13:53:00.001-04:00

Why are the texas announcers trying to bash Sexson? I mean other than Josh Hamilton, who on that team is worth a damn?

Yes, they went way overboard trying to crush the guy - they failed and looked like tools in the process.

2008-05-09T13:53:00.000-04:00

Seriously, how dare those announcers take up for their team? Give me a break. The pitch wasn't even close to hitting Sexson, and two Rangers players had already been drilled earlier in the night, so if anybody shoulda been pissed, it's Texas.

While Grieve may have went a little overboard, he was basically right and the Mariners need to 1)start playing better baseball or 2)convert into a

2008-05-09T13:52:00.000-04:00

MLB.com's video had the Seattle announcers, who were saying the pitch was obviously intentional.

Sexson is a punkass for throwing the helmet and charging the mound for NOT being hit. TAG and Lewin were right for piling on him.

I like Lewin alot (he also does Charger radio), and Grieve was a player and GM of the team before becoming an announcer, so if he's a homer...well,

2008-05-09T13:30:00.000-04:00

Are all the Texas announcers this big of homer tools? If there's one thing I hate in an announcer its a pep rally douche bag. Boston guys are probably the worst but this sausage wallet is right up there.

2008-05-09T13:29:00.000-04:00

Any chance you've found video from the M's broadcast?

Having not seen the game, I'd like to think there was a little more going on than what the video out of context shows.

At least he said Sexson was formerly good. It wasn't all bad.

2008-05-09T11:44:00.000-04:00

Sexson should be suspended for a while for this- this was obviously a premeditated I am going no matter what type deal, when the pitch wasn't even close to hitting him. The only problem is that would hardly be a punishment for the Mariners.

2008-05-09T11:33:00.000-04:00

Should have said "notably high and not quite inside". Typing is hard, let's go shopping.

2008-05-09T11:23:00.001-04:00

Is it just me, or was the pitch notably high and inside?

Also, "what's the difference between throwing a helmet and hitting a guy with a bat?" Really?

You stay classy, not Ben Grieve.

Even as a peacemaker he still looked like he wanted to kick some ass.
