Yeah, that's what I do, pretty much. Some days he's okay, and the melt downs can be entertaining, but over all? Meh. Not my cup o' tea.


I am in the Chicago market and I watch the Twins/Sox with the sound off. Then if the Sox have an error or give up a homer, I rewind the DVR and listen to the sound on so I can hear Hawk moan. When Thome won that game a couple of years ago for us, I must have listened to Hawk say "Dadgummit" 5 times.

Really, really nice fielding plays from Florimon and Dozier in this inning!

I don't have mlb tv.

But I live in Iowa and get the broadcasts for the Cubs, White Sox, Royals, Twins, Brewers and Cardinals (plus others from time to time on MLB TV).

Bremer simply talks far too much. But most of all, we've seen and heard Dick-Bert for so d*mn many years, there just isn't anything new any more.

I LOVED the Provus-Gladden broadcasts in ST but synching the TV and radio is difficult.


I'm in Hong Kong right now, TV feed from MLB.tv is always dropping out, so I've got Dazzle and Provus on instead. I think Jon Miller w/SF and Scully w/LA are the best going. Not sure how MLV.tv works for those in Iowa (know you're in a hole w/TV) but, if you get it, one of the best things is that you can listen to both feeds for any game. Love listening to how the other side sizes up the Twins...
Feel free to pile on about Suzuki.

And Florimon cleans up Plouffe's mess, effortlessly.

His defense more than makes up for his .241 OPS?

Clearly
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Florimon's hitting this year has been non-existent so far. I'll be the first to tell you that. It's almost like he's fighting Bartlett for worst hitter on the team. However, it's still early in the season, no point getting too excited. His defense has pretty much looked mid-season form since day one. Not saying it makes up for his lack of hitting. He needs to start hitting and soon.

I am loving all of the new faces in the game threads, and still love all of the old ones. You are all making this fun.

Really nice play there by Plouffe. I am very happy with the infield defense today- it's very sharp.

I'm cheering for good at-bats, Hicks & Florimon. Wanna see these guys with .300+ OBP.

Overall, the infield has looked pretty good this year so far. No complaints from me. Dozier and Florimon look fantastic, while Mauer and Plouffe are getting the job done.
