    Chip Caray had a bad Play by Play Night

    Does anyone else agree? He rambled on and on saying nothing. He was WISHING someone on the Angels would finally hit a homerun. He said Dice-k gives up "his share of hits". As Ripken pointed out, the hits are not the problem, its the walks. He would talk about a reliever being made into a pitcher from a shortstop during the most important at bats of the game. A couple of his other calls were strange, as well.

    Carey and Martinez were horrible. Normally Buck Martinez is not half bad but last night he didn't know when to shut up. He repeated the same points over and over. Carey was clearly rooting for the Angels. When the Sox came back in the ninth Carey sounded very disappointed and during the lasty of the ninth he wrote off the Angels competely much like a disappointed homer. Terrible job! Of all the analysts on the TBS broadcast, Harold Reynolds is the best.

    I particularly liked when he called out "GOT HIM" coco crisp when the angels tried to pick him off. Maybe he could wait until the ump made the call before giving his opinion.

    Dog, you are right. I forgot about that one! And Martinez was non stop talking. All of these guys over think the whole thing. Blah, blah, blah!

    i agree. both guys were more than terrible. in fact, they got worse from wednesday night when they were certainly not good. if this is a trend, just think how bad and how disappointed they will be on sunday especially if the red sox win.

    maybe they learned some lessons on how to call a red sox game from buck and mccarver. for some reason none of them like the red sox, and worse is that they all let it show.

    I agree. Listening to Reynolds and Orsillo doing the White Sox vs. Rays games is actually enjoyable. I like Buck Martinez, but I finally had to put my tv on mute for awhile, just for a breather!

    I found it hilarious when his he go so excited for a routine fly ball that jason bay easily caugh, moving texeria to 3rd. They were ridiculous. No one likes a winner, the yankees went through this. No one can stop and say that theo epstien is a genius and the sox look to be the favorites for the next 5 years. There is only a handful of guys that are over 30 on this team....oh yeah...and the sox have bay signed through next year. brilliant!!

    Didn't anyone else catch when he said something about the Angels' third-base coach "redeeming himself" last night by aggressively waving home Teixeira (I think), making up for his "mistake" the previous night with Guerrero?

    He didn't make a "mistake" the previous night! He had a stop sign up for Guerrero at second base! Guerrero just ignored it and was out at third by a mile!

    Yeah, awful color commentary.

    Jim, you took the words right out of my mouth. Martinez was no prize, either, but I'm amazed by the errors that Caray continues to make.

    Anyone else hate the way Martinez mispronounces Ortiz' name?

    You would think a guy with a Spanish last name like Martinez would know how to pronounce Big Papi's last name. Buck keeps accenting the 1st syllable of Ortiz. It's annoying.

    Chip proves there is something to be said for anti-nepotism rules.

    i agree with all you guys, they certainly are terrible, and sometimes it seems like the don't even know what they're talking about. But i think i figured out why, but i may be wrong of course. Im betting TBS has them act like they dont know anything and say all the simple and idiotic stuff so that the guys who never watch baseball can actually understand whats going on. Its the playoffs so tons of people who never watch the game watch it now, i swear thats what it seems like. Like yesterday when Caray, i think, said well they've got 27 outs to get back in this one. I was like...DUH! its a nine inning ball game! But ya i think its for the laymen non baseball watching fans...can't really call them fans tho.

    "Another hit by David ORTiz..."

    Something like that. Maybe he should just stick to "Papi".

    Carey also said "low throw" from short to first when the throw hit Tex right at the chest. Also, Ellsbury's ball in game one was clearly hit well but Carey acted as if God intervened and pushed the ball off the wall...rather than Carey just not knowing what he is looking at.
