Love Bremer, but Ted Robinson was better. Blyleven used to be amusing, but hasn't said anything new or offered any new insights for at least 5 years. Tired of the "circling". Tired of hearing about his Birthday. Still don't think he belongs in the HOF.
Agree, RB, Carneal was king.
I understand some of the criticisms of Gladden, but I still enjoy listening to him. He may be a homer, but he's no cheerleader. I like that he tells you what he thinks without sounding like he's afraid of offending anyone. He doesn't sugarcoat it.
When Dick and Bert watch Valencia boot a grounder, they'll say things like "Danny did a nice job getting in front of that ball but he just couldn't quite come up with it. I'll bet he would like to have that one back", Gladden will say "that's routine right there, Valencia needs to make that play".

I like this thread and the responses, but think we are debating the wrong question. I find the radio braodcast too cluttered. Why is it impossible to come out of a commercial before missing the first pitch? Does there need to be a "drop in" ad between every pitch? "Get you eye care here! Buy your Harley Davidson here! Prepay for your own funeral here!
Seriously, I listen to almost every team's radio broadcast from time to time on XM. The Twins' broadcast is easily the most heavily cluttered with advertising nonsense. Any response?
It was discovered that Harley Davidson and eye care specialists will spend money for those drop ins. This is money over and above the regular avails.
Also broadcast rights are exclusive. Therefore you don't have to worry about being beat by a non cluttered broadcast. If the other teams are not as cluttered as the Twins... Give them time... They will be.

I think that'd be ideal. Or just have Provus call the entire game. I agree with the comments about Gladden's refreshing willingness to speak his opinions without holding back (the comment from one_eyed_jack about a hypothetical Valencia play was spot on) but his play-by-play is brutal to listen to.
Do you think the Twins would ever go to a three man booth and just have Gladden there for color commentary and not actual play-by-play?
