today the announcers said that Fred Lynn was the last rookie to win ROY and MVP...
said the same thing during the last Angels series...
when announcers can't get the basic info right, they're pretty worthless
I heard that when I was in the other room. If they said that in the other broadcast like you say why isn't that thing noticed or fact checked? Do people in the booth pay attention?
How can they forget all the controversy when Ichiro won? All that debate about him not being a "real rookie".....I'm shocked they've made that mistake twice on the air.
I guess Bremer and TK weren't curious enough to look it up. I suppose the stats people were either not paying attention or they just assume everything said on the air is correct.
All in all I don't mind TK for what he has to offer. He is a very LOW keyed person...that's probably why he had success as a ML manager. For that matter I don't have a problem with Dan Gladden...I like him more Blyleven, Bremer or Provus...Bremer and Bleleven are way too much of a homer and I don't like the way Provus calls the game....just haven't warmed up to him I guess.
I definitely haven't missed Blyleven's absence one bit.
