    Who's the wannabe imitating Eck on TBS?

    Watching the Tiger;s-A's game, and one of the commentators is throwing "piece of cheese", "punchouts", etc all over the place! Who does he think he is? Let him get his own lingo! It's a disgrace!

    It's a quite subdued version of Orsillo and Eck on a national broadcast.  A very muted version of their personalities when they can't cut loose like they do on NESN.

    I have noticed that the audio engineers have also done some filtering and modifications to the sound... Don or Eck do not sound like they normally do on NESN. The high end of the audio spectrum has been reduced.

    FWIW, I thought the LAD/Atl crew were worse.  It is completely monotone, and filled with nothing but platitudes. 'He swung at a bad pitch, but he can file that away for future reference'.  Besides being stupid, since he won't be seeing Ryu against this series, what does it even mean.  On McCann, 'you can see why he hits so well with the bases loaded, so calm and collected'.  Something vaguely nice about each player.

    It really needed someone exploring each pitch.  What the pitcher and catcher are setting up, what the batter is or should be looking for.

    It feels like we skipped a generation in announcing talent.

    MLB needs to work with the networks to get some new and fresh anouncing talent.  How many years have we had to deal with the intolerable duo of McCarver and Buck calling the big games?  Likewise, there are so many other local annoucers that are as dull and boring and need to be replaced.  If MLB wants younger fans to stay interested in a sport that is often label as too slow, they need to get rid of these aging has beens droning on about playing in 1965 and get some exciting, fresh young talent.

    It's Orsillo, but not Eck; that's the point.

    I thought they did a nice job.  Doing the tigers games takes away all Eck's personal stories.  It was nice watching this game with a Boston connection.




    Trouble is, that was Orsillo, but it was not Eck!

    I watched every Sox game, this year, on Xtra inning. Often, when available, I would switch to the opposing teams broadcasts. None are anywhere near as good as the Orsillo-Eckersley pair. Also, none of their camera coverage even approaches what Fenway has. That, of course, includes this TBS coverage, which is really bad. Not quite as bad as the Ray's home coverage, which is worse than bad.
