    God no. Dave Barnett's going over from radio.

    That's a good choice. Who's going to do radio?

    DIRT DIRT! CHEAP CHEAP!

    I laugh my ass off when I see those commericals. And with McLaughlin getting bagged for DUI last year, the commerical has a life of its own. Off-topic, I think FSN Midwest and the Cards cut down the games McLaughin was doing probably because of that DUI, methinks.

    The only redeeming thing about the Cardinals is listening to Rick Horton.

    Which was the job he had before moving into the booth. I thought he was OK there, but geez, his brief play-by-play run soured me on him.

    The Rangers had a perfectly good guy in the booth for nine years with Josh Lewin, and they canned him. I thought Barnett would naturally slide over from radio, but they chose Rhadigan instead. And he was AWFUL. Missed call after call and Grieve had to correct him more than a few times.

    Steve Busby will help Eric Nadel in the radio booth to take Barnett's place.

    I miss Mark Holtz, partly grew up listening to him.

    I have never had any intentions.

    Rhadigan seemed like a decent enough guy, but as the weeks went on he seemed to be more intent on creating some signature style rather than on, you know, calling the game correctly. We had already grown way weary of his stumbling. I have to think Rhadigan was a fall-back option the Rangers went to whenever their first (maybe first 20?) choices didn't pan out.

    You must have missed the 19-inning game in Philly this week, as did I due to storms and a power outage. Phillips got picked off 2nd in the 11th and Brennaman was slamming Phillips 7 innings later apparently.

    I do, too. Nadel took some getting used to back in the day. They were a very good pairing.
