Baseball Postseason and the Two-Man Booth

2016.10.20 14:53 phitter72 Baseball Postseason and the Two-Man Booth

My Great Aunt Edna always used to say, "If you don't have something nice to say about someone, come sit and tell me."
Last night though, I think it dawned on me...maybe Joe Buck isn't the worst. Despite the fact he'd rather watch the Bachelorette than a baseball game, i think that his call of the NLCS has been buoyed by two things: (1) John Smoltz is awesome as a colorman and (2) there are only TWO PEOPLE in the booth.
In watching the ALCS, on the other hand, I find Ernie Johnson to be a capable play-by-play guy but Ron Darling is offputtingly overbearing and Cal Ripken just seems to add little interesting insight.
But maybe the three-person booth is just too much of each broadcaster trying to get their voices heard and not enough of letting the game speak for itself.
Sorry Aunt Edna, but I think the two-man booth has made Joe Buck much more palatable as a play-by-play guy.
Please baseball, assuming Joe Buck gets the nod for World Series coverage, keep it a two-man booth and partner him with John Smoltz.
