Was last night not the silliest crap you have every seen? What % of the viewership did they think wanted to see Josh running around being a dumbass?
I really think having Tom Grieve there is a neccesity and I like his insight when Josh allows him to talk. But I challenge the network or the powers that be change the format.
I really like what they are doing tonight and hope its a success. We live in an internet world and having interaction with a fanbase during the game is the future. I swear I've noticed topics on the gameday threads come up an hour later on-air.
I propose putting on a guy like adam to bring the internet interaction into the broadcast booth. I also think the booth needs a stat/video guy that can show me the pitcher against and how he pitches against us. Tell me what we did to get Thome out when he's going on a tear. Same with Vlad. I'm sick of hearing how this guy is unstoppable against us because thats easier information to provide. I'd rather have information like Padilla got him out twice by getting 2 strikes then pitching him low and away.
I know this is the format that worked for Harry Carry and WGN. But after last night, I think its really past time to change to something new. Getting JD on with an online chat is a good start.
