I read that the radio and Fox would be in sync for the WS, so at least we can now listen and not hear the play 3 seconds before we see it

When the Fox lineup consists of Buck, Brennerman and, uh, Chimp (or has he been canned?), Buck is good.

Good.Being as this is John Rooney's swan song with the Sox,
I want to hear him call each and every moment of these games.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, Buck is so monotone that his homerun call is the same as a walk call. I don't mind McCarver and I think Lou adds some color and is funny even though sometimes what he says is obvious.

Whatever happened to the Vin Sculley, Joe Gargiolla sp? days? That would be awesome.

I would even prefer Costas over Buck, no doubt about it.

Is it just me or does the same thing happen on TV? It's almost like they are calling the plays like a 1/2 a second before they happen.

That does happen sometimes when the broadcast is in HD or something. The picture is delayed just a hair behind the audio. I noticed it during the last superbowl....Gumbel was constantly jumping the gun, for instance calling a catch while the ball was still in the air.

I plan on watching FOX while listening to XM. It will be slightly delayed, but at least I won't have to endure McCarver.

Hey, I hate Buck as much as the next guy, but he's better than Berman.

I can't say I agree with that comparison. That ranks right up there with comparing cow turds and horse turds. I don't care how you look at it, bottom line they're still TURDS!!!

'Nuff said!

Whatever happened to the Vin Sculley, Joe Gargiolla sp? days? That would be awesome.As a desert dweller (and NL Diamondbacks fan), I get to listen to Joe Garigiola do TV every once in a while, usually on a Friday night at home. I could listen to him every day, all day long. Greatest color guy you ever want to hear. Great stories, a lot of knowledge, never boring.
I've said it once and I'll say it again, Buck is so monotone that his homerun call is the same as a walk call.On the other hand, I also have to listen to Thom Brenneman. All I can say is, thank God Mark Grace is in the booth with him...or I'd fall asleep. Mark (even though an ex-flubbie) is a great guy to listen to. Enthusiastic and funny, and without a doubt knows his stuff too.

Well, the problem is sattelite and cable are completely different anyway. I used to have both cable (Comcast) and sattelite (Dish)... one upstars, one downstairs. If you put the same thing on, the cable came through 1-3 seconds earlier.

It makes sense... the sattelite is beaming the content down to you from space, through the air. The cable is all electric current from a few miles away.

WMVP synched the ALDS radio call to the broadcast TV signal, so if you were watching the game using the old rabbit-ear antennae it was all good. I think the braintrust at AM1000 realized that most people watching the game are watching via cable. For those of you watching on Comcast HD, there will likely be a delay.

I don't mind the delay, actually - I like hearing that something good happened so I know exactly what to look for.

Kinda "streamlines" the viewing experience.:D:

Now, the 7 to 10 second delay between the broadcast and the Sox N Roll broadcast......THAT's priceless! It gives me 7 to 10 seconds completely free of F-bombs to enjoy the play.

Say it with me now...

Joe Buck has no bias against the White Sox.

Keep repeating that to yourself in case you start to actually believe otherwise. What do you think, Lou?
