As I've stated many times, people are highly entertained by drama.
This is a ratings boosting gimmick

Music is my life.

Shepard, by shrieking about the successes is only walking through a door jamb that had the barrier blown off its hinges by Dan Dickerson.

DD's first preseason Tigers broadcast, a journeyman named Mike Kinkade hits a homer against Detroit and you'd have thought a Triple Crown had been secured by the play. It's still that way.

Media is a "gushy" kind of business these days, and we'll have to accept it, or take it in with the mute on. Loving the work of Bruce Martyn will not bring him back.

Dickerson went nuts today over the Tigers turning a double play, despite being down at least 8-0 late in the game. A tie or close game, I can see some excitement, but not when you are getting blown out.

DICKERSON AND Price are shills who offer little insight .(Well,SOMETIMES Dickerson,an announcer with no discernible major sports background,is more illuminating than ex-big-leaguer [though a cruddy one ] Price, when Double D isn't jabbering about unassisted double-and triple plays involving multiple fielders and giggling at Jimbo's unfunny "jokes," horrid "singing," and cringe-worthy cheerleading .)

Shepard isn't really a baseball announcer;he's good doing the Michigan basketball games with ex-Wolverine and ex-Piston Terry Mills .

What's interesting is that DD has been good on the TV broadcasts when he and Mario would "swap." Maybe these guys are just misplaced.

I'm still cracking up over how the morons at the News and Freep thought the new Tigers play-by-play man was going to someone with a nationally renowned resume. :rollin

Absolutely NO ONE with highly regarded MLB play-by-play credentials wanted to touch the gig with a 100-ft long pole!

I am unsure how anyone can stand watching or listening to Tigers games; the team is an absolute dumpster fire.

Memo to 760 WJR: Your audio sounds like distorted horse shit. FIX IT!!!
