I like baseball. Specifically, I like the Atlanta Braves. As often as possible I am watching or listening to the games. I think the announcers that the Braves employ are superb and they actually know something about baseball so their chatter is usually interesting. However, there is a problem. The Braves are under contract with ESPN and Fox Sports to air a certain number of games on their stations per season. This annoys me to no end. The announcers on these two stations are the lamest most annoying people I have ever had the displeasure to listen to. ESPN is especially annoying. They constantly put the game in a small window and show random stuff like people in the crowd or the damn television control room (and they don't always show the game in a small window). They also incesently try to sell just about everything imaginable; they love trying to sell HDTV stuff. No, I can't tune in to the radio broadcast for the commentary and watch it on television because the telecast is delayed and it is really really weird knowing ahead of time what you will being seeing on screen.
Oh, and the Braves are owning the Marlins this year. Five for six against them this year now. They just owned them seven to two.
