I actually think the broadcasts have been better this year than last season. They seem to be making more of an effort to engage each other in conversations about the game and the issues afflicting our team. I don't sense nearly as much tension between them as I did last year. One thing I do know is that Hawk, Stone, Farmer, and DJ are all earning their money this year. Those four guys need to describe 9 innings (sometimes more) of a truly awful and dead ass baseball team just about every single day.
