Default Chuck Swirsky sucks

Anyone that complains about Benetti should have to listen to Swirsky do tonight's game, and then the replay right after. He's not a baseball announcer (although I can't listen to him do Bulls games either), and his voice is grating. He asks Stone WAY too many questions - it's like he knows nothing about baseball. I had to switch it for a minute and watch the freaking US Open match.

Sounded like he wasn't prepared whatsoever to do a broadcast tonight.

I'm gonna say it's safe to say Steve Stone felt the same way. The tension was palpable when Swirsky alleged that Stone and Luis Tiant pitched in the same "era." Steve responded, "He was a little bit before me." Though as far as I can tell, Luis Tiant was pitching in the league for the entirety of Stone's career.

It was like there wasn't even a game going on, as Swirsky spent endless time exploring the inside minutia of baseball with Stone and Garfein. How many innings did he spend asking questions about how scouting works?



Is it really asking too much to ask these guys to pay attention to the game?

Stone must have felt like his partner was an annoying five year old. "Why?" "Why? "Why?"

He was awful. Just a slight notch below Benetti. Like if Jason is a 3, Chuck is a 2.5.
