I agree!! I like his take that the Cubbies are headed in the right direction under Theo!!He also likes Dale as a manager!! I only wish I had remembered he was singing the stretch!! I would've loved to hear Sutcliffe talk w/ Pat & Keith on the radio side!!
During that clip It was funny to hear Suttclife say the last third strike should've been called a ball!! So, he could throw the next one in the dirt & make him swing!!
// !!He also likes Dale as a manager!! \\
Sutcliffe's appearance in the booth was great. He has made me rethink Sveum as manager. I have been down on Sveum as most have. It was a good guest appearance today...
That works both ways!! For those calling for his head should consider the team he's working with!! He's done a better job with Rizzo on the team!!
// But, how can anyone truly gage his skills with this group of misfits? \\
Well, Sutcliffe seems to think that the Cubs have the right person in Sveum. I may have been wrong about him (Sveum) thinking he was useless. But then I remember bad mouthing Dusty Baker when he was managing and look what he has done with the Reds.
Its easy to be positive when your favorite team is winning but boy oh boy when they are in last place and floundering like the Cubs are, it is hard to keep a positive attitude.....I try....
Every team has at least 4 announcers. We should only allow them and our own announcers to be interviewed and sing. And a least once a homestand a recording of Harry should be played singing, and I'm sure there is enough material to have Harry comment as if being interviewed.
I have no interest in people coming thru town or local celebs doing the singing.
And his shot onto Sheffield was like the highlight in a meaningful game of the last 30 years.
Still he cost us Joe Carter.
A rarity hubbsy. A rarity.
They still need to do away with the guest 7th inning singsong and associated gabfest. Some of the most brutal live baseball coverage/television in all of sports media. Totally interrupts whats going on the field of play during bottom of 7th. B, JB.
"The part that I can't stand though is the usually painful TV interviews they conduct afterward, WHILE THE FREAKKIN' BALLGAME IS BEING PLAYED!"
