    If you get a chance to read Mr. Mushnick's column on John Sterling in today's NY Post, please do. It is outstanding and, if for some strange reason, you happen to think Sterling does a good job, sorry. I don't.

    It is amazing that the most famous franchise in the country's biggest market has Sterling and Waldman as its radio team.

    That story about the kid getting stomped is horrifying.

    I am convinced that the high HR totals in New Yankee Stadium are being caused by the hot air emanating from the Yankee Radio broadcast booth.

    Here's the top of the column, I think spnited's link starts on page 2.

    Thanks, 21.

    The kid getting stomped is an old story he was just updating what the stomper was doing now.

    Of course, Sterling sucking is an old story, too. But he's ony getting worse

    Sterling is a travesty, much more interested in perpetuating his awful schtick than calling a clean game. I listened to a game this spring for about two minutes ... until he uttered the phrase "Tex message" for a home run. I refuse to listen to Yankees games on radio.

    Thing is - there aren't a lot of great announcers out there. Without cable television, I don't think 90 percent of the mediocrities doing radio for a MLB team have a job.
    Twenty years of Stirling? Jheezsh.
    Is there anyone (aside from Scully - and maybe John Miller) that can tell a story between pitches any more - or is all the dead time devoted to shilling for an advertiser now?

    Don't blame the announcers for that. That's the club jamming in as many sponsor messages and promos as possible.

    And BTW, Scully's stories repeat more often than "I Love Lucy." He gets a fun fact about most opposing players (and usually just one) and uses it every time the guy comes up.
