John Miller...."And there goes Jermaine Dye, he just got the biggest jump in...history." These guys are so horrible.

When did we pick up Tada Iguchi? I mean, I know we had Tadahito Iguchi already. Are they related?

Also, I didn't know that Tada Iguchi was subbed in for Taguchi. And for that matter, I didn't know Taguchi was on the Sox.

Actually, in one of the locker room celebrations last year, Sox players were chanting his name pretty much how Miller is saying it.

Actually, of all of the national broadcast teams, I like Morgan/Miller the most. I think they have good chemistry and they call a good game.

A far, far cry from Buck/McCarver.

Miller isn't too bad he just has problems pronouncing certain names.

As for Morgan, I loved (when C.C. was being taken out) "If this injury isn't serious, then it'd be a good thing."

I am also a big fan of these announcers. I don't believe they take themselves very seriously and they both have good senses of humor.

The ONLY thing that made listening to those idiots tolerable was the fact that the Sox went 8-1 with them in the booth. Otherwise, I think I'd prefer to listen to a dentist's drill in my mouth.

I think those guys are better then normal....I mean consider the Sox on radio now have Dumb and Dumber, but I've heard better teams in my time including on the South Side.

Personelly i love listening to Jon Miller and Joe Morgan because they are the best announcers out there plus we dont have to really worry about hearing all about the red sox or yankees from either of these two

Messing up the names upset me a little, I suppose the ooribe one wasn't as bad as Tada Iguchi and then Taguchi but does Joe belittle every second baseman in the game?

I noticed that. He made some comment on the shift the Sox had on when Hafner was up or something.
"You see Iguchi out there in right field. Personally I don't see the purpose of having him out there at all" (or something like that)

My favorite though, was Miller REPEATING, about 750x, that after 4 1/2 games, it was a complete game.....

LOL I don't know...I just laugh at bad announcers. I don't really hate any of them, but at least they sound so stupid sometimes that it just makes me laugh. I could care less as long as they're saying SOMETHING. Personally the only time I get angry at announcers is when it's just dead air. Unrelated to commentary for games, but Dan Patrick show....the guy has spaces in his broadcast where he'll not say anything for like 30 seconds. HELLO??!

John Miller: "Thome has flied out, walked AND THAT ONE IS HIT A MILE! HELLO CHICAGO!"

And from Jayson Stark's ESPN article today, AJ Pierzynski on Thome's home run coming after the 2+ hour rain delay: "Hey, Thome's a hero now, because he hit a home run. He got a curtain call in front of 40 people."

I know, my girlfriend and I almost started a drinking game. Everytime Miller would bring up a official game, we would have to drink. Thank god I was at the game for the first 4 innings and didnt have to listen to him.

I got the impression he was hoping he could get out of there soon. Those guys are calling the game in San Diego tonight. He probably wanted to get some rest or something before a long flight out there today.

It was "interesting" to listen to Morgan sort of tip-toe around when the subject of steroids and Barry Bonds came up. Him and Miller seemed to be lamenting that it seems that the focus of the investigation was not everyone who may have used, but Barry Bonds. Morgan also said that he questioned the timing of the Game of Shadows book that came out. ("Why now ?") Those segments were embarrasing to listen to.

If you know Spanish (which I'm assuming you don't), that is how it's pronounced. U makes an OO sound.

I got the exact same impression...like he was dying to get out of there. Pay me what he makes to go to baseball games for free and talk about them, and I'll fly a redeye cross country.

"You know, Howard Bryant wrote a book called 'Juicing the Game.' Jose Canseco made a -- wrote a book about it. And I'm trying to figure out why this latest book is so much more important than anything else that we've already known about the steroid era. That's -- that bothers me right there."

1. Why does it bother you?
2. Do you really not know why this book, written by the two investigative journalists who have been covering the BALCO scandal and the leaked grand jury testimony for months and months, is more important than the ramblings of a guy who later appeared on a reality TV show about washed-up celebrities?
3. I'll answer for you. It is more important because it contains like a thousand pieces of until-now unseen evidence linking the greatest hitter of all time to a massive illegal steroid operation, including schedules of drug use, eyewitness accounts, and financial records.
4. Why do you insist on trying to protect Barry Bonds?

Yes, Miller is pronouncing Uribe's name in Spanish. "you-REE-bay" is the anglicized version of his name.

I think it's worse that you're a fan of this team and don't know how to say his name. :redneck


I think Jon Miller's great. The only thing that bothers me is when he gets the "naive voice."

That's right. The proper pronunciation en Espaņol is Oo-ribe with a slight roll of the "r," like Miller does. Although I say "Your eBay" like the rest of Sox fans. :cool:

mind this announcing team but I took note that Joe Morgan was scoffing at Goochs placement against Hafner. Then later that placement allowed gooch to cut down the runner to second on a grounder deep into that hole.

Morgan just said he was surprised that gooch was able to get the guy at second and made no mention that his placement allowed for that play.

I thought back to gooch taking hits away from Ortiz in the playoffs against the Red Sox with similar placement.

I will trust Ozzie knows what he is doing.

I've actually wondered since Uribe first came to the Sox why our local announcers pronounce his name, "Your ee bay" and the out-of-towners use the standard "correct" pronunciation.

I was under the impression that it's basic SOP for the home team to check with their players to confirm how they want their names pronounced by the on-air media. I wonder what the story is with Uribe?

For that matter, does anyone know where the accent falls in Guillen? First or last syllable?

Maybe it's like Podsednik has said about people not knowing that the first "d" in his Czech name should be silent:

"It doesn't matter much to me just as long as it's being pronounced at the big-league level and not Triple-A."

Who could forget the clasic "Oooh Nooo" when Paulie cranked the homer against Boston in the ALDS. Berman puts the "E" for "East coast" in ESPN. :angry:

I remember Harry Caray pronouncing Cardinals pitcher Joaquin Andujar's name as "ahn-doo-jar" for awhile before somebody apparently stepped him aside and gave him an impromptu Spanish lesson...:D:

Wow, that color hurts to look at. I'll excuse the non-teal violation only because I'm sick of seeing those same tags, but you do need to get your Berman stories straight. The "Oooh Nooo" came on Grafanino's error before Iguchi's home run in Game 2; what you're thinking of is Game 3 in Boston, where Berman ho-hummed Paulie's go-ahead blast, but made each David Ortiz or Manny Ramirez homer sound like a World Series Game 7 walkoff.

His eulogizing of the Red Sox while our guys were celebrating on the field is an embarassment to ESPN, if they were capable of such.
