To me what he has to say carries more weight because he has been around for so many "eras" of baseball. Just my opinion. Listen to the new, polished announcers if it floats your boat.
You said yourself he was stuck in his own era of baseball and hasn't or doesn't want to change as the game has. Why oh why would you trust what he says as being accurate to the game as it's understood today? How is that "value" of his seen as a good thing to you?
