Does anyone else think he is God awful?
The guy is boring...he gets stuff wrong all of the time...he can't read a play and can't tell where the ball is going or how far...he tries to say one thing, but says another. Ugh. He's painful to listen to.
He's the baseball version of Bernie Federko.
And they have Mike Shannon on for a couple innings each game (which is great)...but that just makes it that much more obvious how bad Randolph is.
I don't know why someone thought it would be a good idea to put both Randolph and Rick Horton in the booth for the games on KSDK. Both are horrible...but at least Rick Horton sounds like he knows what he is talking about and sounds comfortable. Randolph says things, and I'm like...WTF?!?!The "Fox Box" at the top of the screen
I'm fortunate enough to have HD...and this may seem picky, but...it bugs the crap out of me that the score they keep at the top of the screen, has extra graphics and stuff that take up unnecessary space. I'm watching the game in HD and I want to see the field, the grass, the crowd...you know, the game itself with the great picture, not some graphical representation of a metal support beam that is supposed to give the impression it is holding up the scoreboard that goes all the way across the top of the screen. VS does this too for their hockey broadcasts. They have extra stuff to the left and right and above the score at the top of the screen. It's not necessary.
WHY DO THIS? QUIT COVERING UP THE HD PICTURE!!!
Who thinks this is a good idea? Show the score, number of outs, the inning and who's on base. Don't put extra crap up there, especially when it has nothing to do with the stats and info for the game. They are essentially turning my 42" plasma into a 38" plasma.
They could take a lesson from HDNET's broadcast of NHL games. They have a small box for the score at the top left of the screen...and that's it.
Bah. I just felt like ranting today.
