Braves no longer on TBS, LCS on cable tv, I guess it's progress but it's going to take a little while to get used to.

Maybe they'll be watchable now?

Seriously, I hate their announce team. Simply awful in my opinion. Why do you like them? Does it take a fan to enjoy them?

It will take a lot more than a new TV deal to make the Atlanta Braves watchable.



I would not be a bit surprised if the individuals on the team from your area were sexually attracted to members of their own gender. That is how ineffective they are on the field of battle.

I liked Skip and Pete. Could tolerate Sutton and Simpson. Consider Chip to be hideous. And, I've been unable to watch Braves games since they started changing the format around a few years ago and had half the screen taken up for most of the game.
As for the TV Deal: The better have TNT on alert for LDS games, as they have been known to run over regularly. There is no ESPN2 to naturally flow with ESPN in that situation. Still, much better than the ABC Family fiasco of a few years ago. At least this means Joe Morgan and Chris Berman will be moved away from the playoffs, unless Morgan jumps to TBS. Now, if they could only find a way to rid the world of McCarver. He caught Bob Gibson in case you didn't know.

I think for me its more of thats who i grew up listening too all these years, especially Skip, I know they are not the best, but man, they were my announcers, on my team, and they stuck thru all the crappy years and all the great years u know, and now part of that is gone just like that.

They didn't announce for my favorite team but I still enjoyed their work. They wanted the Braves to win but they were far from the biggest homers I've ever heard. My only problem was the whole "America's Team" crap that TBS was doing.

I can't stand the Atlanta announcers either, they are by far the biggest homers I've ever heard. I remember at one point this year they why trying to convince the viewers that Marcus Giles, who was batting .190 at the time, was the best leadoff hitter in the NL.

That being said, as a Mets fan I love watching the Braves play this year with the sound muted. Even if they are up 7 - 1 in the 7th I'm happy because I know the Braves bullpen will blow it, probably before the 7th inning is even over.

You've never tried to listen to the White Sox' guys, have you?

I miss Chip very much. Steve Stone moreso, but the Chip and Stoney combo was top notch. Len and Bob are just now growing on me.



They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

Heh, you stole my line there. I like the Hawk Harrelson homerun call (you can putitontheboard, YES!), but those guys are so over the top it's ridiculous.

Kinda sad to see the Braves off of TBS. I was never a fan or anything, but it was always cool watching a random Braves game.



Yes, you are a troll.
