    Lux's ABs have been very unimpressive tonight, putting it mildly.

    Nice start Julio. Great to have him starting every 5th game.

    I know one championship is not enough and we all want and expect more, but I've got to say, three consecutive (non covid shortened) seasons of 100 wins is pretty damn cool.

    Considering the injuries to the pitching staff it's more than cool.

    Wish he could remove the "we" from his vocabulary. Orel does some of that as well.

    If you're going to attempt to fill the Vin shoes at least act like a professional, not a fucking homer.

    Absolutely no one is trying to fill Vin's shoes.That would be more than a complete fool's errand.
    The fact that Orel and whomever else uses "we"gets that much vitriol out of you ?

    Wouldn't call it vitriol. Just an annoyance after years of objectivity in the booth.

    Well, the "we" in sports reporting has unfortunately become commonplace now. Gone are the days of the professional sports announcers who are able to remain objective. Not sure who started the "homerism" approach, but guys like Krukow and Kuiper have done their share to push it along. I don't mind it so much on a TV broadcast, because I can still see for myself and make up my own mind, but when I'm listening to play-by-play on the radio, I'm counting on the announcer to give me an unbiased account of what is happening on the field, and I know that's no longer the case, so I have to take their words with a grain of salt. It's really a shame.

    not a fan of announcers using “we”
    they’re supposed to be professional and impartial
    at first i thought it was just watching other team’s home broadcasts, but i hate it even more when orel and karros do it
    that said, definitely like orel and what he brings to the games
    karros is a bit less refined, but i really like him being unafraid to call it as he sees it and/or call someone out
    i also like nomar and dontrelle, and think tim neverett is underrated as the lead guy
    and as i’ve said ad nauseam, kirsten is fucken horrible

    How much of a shame is it, really ? Everybody's gotta be who they are, and if saying " we" is the way they express themselves and they feel that loyalty, so what?
    You've got a team that's been in the post season ten years in a row, and lost 90% of the time.
    I guess it might be under apples and oranges, but the relentless failure ultimately is much worse than saying "we".
    But that's in my world.
    On the other hand, perhaps they should be torn apart by a pack of ravenous wolves.

    " Fucking homer" isn't vitriol ? OK. Sure.
    And really, is the first person or third person that important ?
    All the world's a classroom, eh ?
    It's baseball, for crissakes.

    No sense comparing Orel and Karros to Vin since they are not tasked with play by play or facilitating the broadcast. They are color (racist) commentators. Even the good ones are unnecessary, as are in-game 'sideline' reporters. A 1 man booth is best for baseball, but there is a limited supply of broadcasters (if any) that have the knowledge, experience, perspective, voice, and storytelling abilities to handle it.

    LA media seems to fawn over Joe Davis, and I admit he's as competent as any of his contemporaries, but he's just another generic 'announcer voice'. Guys like Vin Scully, Jon Miller, and dare I say the idiot Charlie Steiner actually have distinct voices for baseball and are not made in a factory. Plus, Joe's stories and talking points with his booth partner are cringe.

    As for being homers, baseball is now a regional, if not local, sport. There is little national appeal anymore. So the RSNs are going to play into that. I don't like it personally, but that's the model.
