And Gammons is the best .... he's on every Thurs morning with Mike and Mike, right at the time I arrive at work. I sit in the car for 10 min and listen to the interview finish.

Mr. MacPhisto wrote:I still remember Harold Reynolds always, ALWAYS calling Cliff Lee by the name of Clifford. I guess the guy never pulled up ESPN's own player bios to see that his full name is Clifton or maybe Reynolds never realized that there were other names for which Cliff is a nickname.I've gotten to see the BT crew down here a couple of times live at the ESPN Weekend at Disney and it's clear the show's gone downhill. I loved talking to Peter Gammons, albeit briefly, a couple of times and realizing how much the guy knows about baseball at every level. He was listing prospects in our system that I had never heard of, and while I'm not Tony when it comes to tracking the minors, I'm not a slouch. Kruk was an arrogant ass who seemed more comfortable cracking jokes than giving good analysis.Harold Reynolds was always nice, but I never found his analysis to be all the impressive. He had a good grasp on the obvious (Clifford Lee needs to improve his location if he wants to be more valuable to the team - thanks Einstein). Ravech was okay, but was more of a moderator.Steve Phillips couldn't stop talking about his days as the Mets GM. That's not something to be proud of. There's a reason he's not a GM somewhere else and is an ESPN talking head. I haven't watched BT at all this season and am none the worse for it. It would be nice if a network would create another in-depth baseball show for the more intelligent fan, but I'm not holding my breath.

Showtime: The Indians get some national exposure today and Sunday. Fox (WJW Channel will carry this afternoon's game against the Tigers. Sunday night they're on ESPN. "Maybe we'll get away from Boston and New York being on ESPN and 'SportsCenter' every day," said Borowski. "It's like baseball doesn't exist except for those two teams. "Every other team gets two minutes. Those two teams get half the program."
