Braves Broadcasting Crew Getting Worse

Ugh! (big sigh) I was somewhat excited a week ago when it was leaked that a few other ex-Braves would be joining the Braves broadcast team. But now my excitement has turned to sheer anger, then helplessness -- it's the however many stages of grief. Grief over the death of quality and tolerable play-by-play broadcasters and color analysts.

I got a press release just now from Fox Sports South that said Chip Caray will be returning for ALL 105 games on the Fox stations and some Peachtree TV broadcasts. Luckily, Joe Simpson will be there as well -- he now becomes the best TV broadcaster the Braves have, by far. Tom Glavine will join Simpson on Sunday telecasts; he is also pretty good.

But the ex-Braves we're getting in the booth for Peachtree TV games are going to be Ron Gant and Brian Jordan. Gant I can somewhat handle, but Jordan is complete waste of air time. He has nothing informative to say, and is quite often flat out wrong -- and he played the game! If any of you listened to him last weekend on the CSS televised spring games, you'll know what I'm talking about. He didn't know things about players who spent all season at Gwinnett -- when he was a broadcaster for Gwinnett!

Come on Fox, get someone in the broadcast booth who is actually good at what they do. Not broadcasters that make fans angry and turn them off watching games. I can tell you that the mute button on my remote will be in heavy use this year.
