...Is being able to hear all the other announcing teams around the country. I was watching the Dodgers/Padres last week and I gotta tell you, it was really cool to hear Vin Scully again after all these years. All I could hear him say was, "Behind the bag to Buckner..." over and over in my head.
Of course for every Vin Scully, there's a Skip Caray on Turner South. Can't win 'em all, I guess.
I'd be surprised if Smoltz wins it. He's got something of a high ERA for a closer, and it may even be higher than Schilling's. I also think Schilling's control numbers are far too good to ignore. Right now, no pitcher in either league is touching him.
