How did Cameron Maybin become an announcer?

In all honesty, I do have a problem with Cameron and Beltran and I am going to tell you my truthfully honest opinion.


It's there accents and/or dialects.


Beltran's spanish or latin (or whatever you call it) is so heavy. It's hard to understand him. His baseball commentary is very helpful and useful, but it's not understandable. 


Almost the same with Cameron Maybin. His accent is very heavy and he also talks very fast. 


I'm sorry, but that's...


NOT PROPER ENGLISH,


especially for someone who is in in the practice of "communication" as people do in the television industry.


Maybin and Beltran would be fine, in say......a MLB talk tv show because the viewer can focus on what they say, as we look at their face. There we can see their mannerisms and gestures, and other stuff like that. However, when it comes to a baseball game, we the viewer, are sorta multi-tasking as we are hearing what the broadcasters say and watching what is going on in the game. Though the brain can easily handle both, listening to Beltran and Maybin, makes it work harder....much harder.


Ya know...people pay a lot of money to improve their grammar and phonetic english. It's true!

Interesting that Beltran often mispronounces Spanish names.

Since they were willing to bring in Beltran as an announcer I wonder if they tried to hire Arod as an announcer. I know a lot of you don’t like him but I feel he’s a great announce, full of baseball knowledge and he loves the game.



    I don't know if I would rate him as a great announcer, but I fully agree with your last points.

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.




uh....No. 


First of all, I don't hear it that way. 


Second, Michael Kay is not just the play by play guy, but also the veteran, and the "host" of that broadcast team. It's up to him , and ALWAY HAS BEEN up to him, to direct the topic of conversation among his partner(s). 


LOL...there is no such "first year broadcasting is rough" kind of thing. 


Lastly, when it comes to blabbing.....perhaps nobody "blabbeled" more than Phil Rizzuto, then Bill White, and Frank Messer. They just didn't talk baseball, but they told stories not relating to the game, as well Birthdays and Cannolis.




The cannolis were the best part.  LOL




No announcer could make me laugh like Rizzuto did. Many times Bill White couldn't control his laughing about something Rizzuto would say. There was that on going joke that Rizzuto would look to leave the booth early and go home. I remember the time he was announcing the games and said he might have to leave early because he had a cramp in his leg. lol
