    Thanks for Tib Tips... I didn't know he was on and I'm glad I got to watch him throw.

    There is a lot to like about this Burdi kid... From that inning alone... I think that slider with a nice downward tilt will compliment that fastball nicely.

    However... That stride has to get straightened out or he will struggle with his command sometime. He throws himself completely open to generate that velocity and that is also not good for the health of his arm.

    I hardly know names of commentators. I listen to what they say, but it's kinda just ambience to me.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I know some don't... But I really like Tom Kelly doing color. He just knows baseball like very do.

    Just drop the suit thing... Don't put him in a suit... You can tell by the way it hangs that he doesn't like it.

    Vin Scully is the best... He's like Bill Cosby calling baseball without the punch lines or funny faces.

    You might be a little younger than the median poster here at TD if you need to look up Vin Scully. Even though your liking of the Jays' announcer has no bearing, the following might be interesting, if only to add to your lore of the game:

    If the Jays' announcer (still need to look up his name) doesn't credit Vin as one of his influences, I'll be surprised.

    I know of Vin Scully. I've never heard him announce though. That I can recall anyway.

    If you listen to the youtube link, you may recognize some iconic moments in history and go, "oh, HIM".

    PS. "I know of Vin Scully." Kids, these days.

    I have heard Scully a couple dozen times over the years. Smooth, informative, knowledgeable, and at about 80, he doesn't miss a pitch.

    Then again, in fairness, I know of Jay-Z.

    Jays announcers getting full enjoyment from that home run a couple of batters ago.

    Especially when the drinking light was on. Howard basically informed the world that John Lennon was shot.

    TK is as dry as a desert, but but man he knows baseball. He doesn't know fashion, he doesn't know dentistry, he darn sure doesn't know comedy, but he KNOWS baseball from the tip of his toenails to the split ends of his curly grey hair
