Different strokes, I liked Kubek but when I am stuck with the Rays broadcast down here Staats grates on me.

Different strokes is right. There must be 20,000-25,000 pitches thrown during a season. The last thing I want to hear is someone analyzing every pitch. Save that stuff for the postgame show.


"He left one over the middle and it got clobbered" is plenty descriptive.


"Well, his arm angle was off 1/16 of a millimeter and let's compare his release point on that pitch from a pitch he threw four years ago and don't forget his middle finger pressure" is overkill.

"O'Neill is quite possibly the worst announcer I've ever heard doing Yankee games.  He brings absolutely nothing to the broadcast.  Even his comic relief is not so funny.

I guess I just don't need anyone "bringing anything to the broadcast" except honesty & clarity. O'Neill is fine, they all are. Except Sterling. He's a clown and totally uninterested in bringing an honest call, rather than his goofy schtick. Gets at least 4 calls wrong per inning.  Suzyn there only to make excuses for mr Magoo.   

Staats was good once but has morphed into such a belligerent Rays homer I wouldn't allow his John Oates lookin arss back in the stadium.
