ssreporters, have you ever watched a baseball game? I didn't watch tonight's game but I'm sure Miller said "scoring position" which is 2nd and 3rd. Two runners in scoring position = tying runs in a 9-7 game.

Some of you guys really reach to pick on the announcers...

2008-05-11T23:21:00.000-04:00

How about Joe talking about the Crisp play where JD Drew got nailed at 3rd: "How do you score that?? Because it can be scored different ways." Wrong, Joe -- there's only one way to score it, which was the way it was, FC RBI for Crisp. Not a single RBI -- and you obviously thought it could be scored that way. Wouldn't official scoring be one of the first chapters in "Baseball for Dummies"???

"The possible tying runs are in position." - Jon Miller

Lets break this down:

It's 9-7 after JD Drew's double.

He is on 2nd, another man on 3rd.

Wouldn't a home run give them...the lead?

the about page of aa's website misspells announcing... just thought one of you guys may want to edit that ;)

2008-05-11T22:25:00.000-04:00

I love it...we get a doubleheader of Technophobe Joe tonight and it's only the seventh inning.

First, Joe laments that the technology to measure a hitter's reaction time was not available to analyze Barry Bonds during his playing days. So, evidently, the video camera and the stop watch are very recent inventions.

Next, Joe notes his pleasant surprise that pitches of the same

Too funny. Joe's handjob comment was his most fluid all game.



dammit. sorry, butterscotch.

Joe Morgan, as a foul ball curves into the stands, in re: catching a foul ball in the stands with your bare hand vs. a glove:

"Let's see if we can get a bare hand job right here."

Joe was disappointed that there wasn't a "bare hand job" in the crowd.

Joe can't even wish his Mom a happy Mothers' Day without screwing it up.

2008-05-11T22:08:00.000-04:00

Joe said that you have less time to react to a 95-96 mph pitch than a 91 mph pitch - now that is HOF analysis. He must have played the game. Can someone sitting in a basement in his underwear check the internet to see if his math is correct?

2008-05-11T21:36:00.000-04:00

Great Jon...
Top 4th, 2 outs ... You said the bases are loaded, and after a hit TO THIRD, you tell us 2 runs have scored. Ummm... like, isn't your JOB to keep tract of these little things such as ...oh, the score and how many men are on base? I guess that stuff isn't important.

2008-05-11T21:35:00.000-04:00

Agreed anon, it's like they want to see how sloppy they can be without getting fired...and they'll never be fired.

I hate these pricks.

After Crisp's triple - Miller: "That was eh-heh-xciting to watch him just let it all hang out."

I'm most bothered by how he stuttered with enjoyment in the middle of his statement.

2008-05-11T21:17:00.000-04:00

is it just me, or is the fantasy update above the banner graphic too distracting/meaningless. i'm sure some group is in a bar right now wagering on who comes the closest to guessing carlos gomez's average on a 3-1 count.

2008-05-11T21:14:00.000-04:00

How has it not occurred to ESPN that Miller should only ever be on the radio? If you sat through an actual conversation with someone who talked as much as Jon Miller did, where there was never anything like brief quiet moments, just incessant chatter, you'd either be reaching for the nearest sharp object you could find or already have your own padded room to enjoy.

Um, no shit, Joe?

2008-05-11T20:28:00.001-04:00

A lot of people think it's best to swing at the first pitch from a knuckleball pitcher b/c it's the best one you'll get. A lot of people don't.

A lot of people think the knuckleball moves better indoors...a lot of people think it moves better outdoors.

Hmmmm.....a lot of people think Joe's a moron and a lot of people think.....um, bad example.
