Of course. Of those recently in the booth, Kaat was also excellent.

Singy is all class with a voice as smooth as butter.  Wish he didn't retire.

Yes Kaat was great. His recent comment about " Nestor the molestor" was comically playful....unfortunately some didn't see it that way.

i've noticed that everyone's first year broadcasting is rough. Just way too much blabbing. They make the mistake of thinking it's important to fill up airspace when it really isn't. After that first season, most of the announcers figure out that perfect balance.



I think Maybin & Beltran will get it.... by next season.

maybin's improved. gotten ridden of the some of the superfluous bs.


have yet to warm up to beltran. agree about captain obvious. both are former players and can certainly provide  in-depth insights. just find beltran less insightful. there's also his accent and language issues. still not sure why there was an urgency to put him in the booth. it's one thing to have signed someone like correa (who i didn't want). but once he got some big hits, he'd more than likely be accepted. with a broadcaster, i have no real reason to accept him particularly if he's not great.

I think YES should give Meredith a chance with Kay....She can definetly hold her own against anyone.....

she's probably more suited for play-by-play so she wouldn't be paired w kay. generally players are the color commentators. o'neill, cone, maybin, beltran etc.

  With all dute respect to both Maybin and Beltran, I wish they had given the job to someone with "more pinstripes" running through his veins.
