Geez, now we will have to listen to the announcers squawk and whine about hating Sunday night baseball. For guys that have one of the greatest jobs in the world they sure do complain a lot. “It’s past 11 o’clock…this game is over 3 hours old…and on and on and on.” Sometimes I wish they could experience really working for a living.

Plus they (except for Smoltz maybe) will go on and on about the Angels and Trout while running down the Braves. Last week the first 4 innings was spent talking about the RedSox and their losing streak, and the last 5 was used to denigrate and blast every Braves player except Freddie Freeman. One would never know ESPN is located in the Northeast not far from Boston !

Sorry, thought I saw Smoltz name in the article, but guess not. Just as well, he would probably have gotten embarrassed too having to listen to them.

Anything’s better than listening to the Braves’ butt-kissing broadcasters. Problem is, the national stage pretty much ensures an ATL loss–as it does with all the city’s pro teams.

I was actually commenting on Atlanta announcers leading up to Sunday. Tonight in 2nd inning Skip Carey was complaining about 3 1/2 hour games being a turnoff to young adult fans.
