Found a random Rich and Tommy thread


Recommended Posts

I got mlbextrainnings this season and all I have to say is that we're pretty lucky to have Waltz and Hutton. After hearing the announcers for the Rays, White Sox, and A's, I really don't care what other fans have to say.

 

 

Yeah I agree... Ive always been under the impression that we have some pretty good commentators.

If people hate on you, you're doing something right. For the record...I don't know how anybody at all could be worse than the Rays duo. Just horrific...

 

Pirates, Mariners, Tigers, Orioles, Nationals and Braves are worse but he worst are the White Sox and Diamondbacks.

 

It's tough for me to pick between the White Sox and Rays announcers. The Sox are just plain annoying while the Rays have the ultimate bore factor.

For what it's worth, I try to play SunSports whenever I go to bed, that crew is great at knocking me out within 5 minutes.

Dewayne Stats' was blessed with the most annoying voice on the planet, how he's an announcer for anything is beyond me.

 

I hated him when he was with the Cubs in the 80's. For the most part our announcers like others teams are homers, that's not necessarily a bad thing, like the White Sox "good guys" crap.

I do like the excitement our guys bring to the both, and I would also say that with the exception of Jay Randolph and Gary Carter the Marlins have been blessed with decent announcers.

Still all in all I'd rather have Len Kasper over Rich.

I agree with this completely.

 

Objectively I think Rich and Tommy are pretty damn good. The biggest criticism I've seen fans of other teams make about them is that they are homers. Honestly, there are far worse homers around the league. Hawk Harrelson (who you mention) calls the Sox the "good guys" and the opponents "bad guys." While he's universally disliked, the Giants guys (I know their names but can't spell them) are considered pretty good announcers. They are much, much bigger homers than Rich and Tommy are. You will see this during this coming series.

 

On the other hand, announcers can be really boring and not passionate enough. I remember thinking this about the Pittsburgh crew and Cleveland (I think).

 

Vin Scully is clearly the best, but I have difficulty in coming up with a crew better than Rich and Tommy.

I think that after the Hawk (Chicago Sox), the Nationals guys are the worst.

 

Rob Dibble prides himself on not doing any prep-work, argues balls and strikes more than Tommy ever did, and is a massive homer.

 

Bob Carpenter is also a huge homer, talks too slowly, and has a terrible voice.
