Be Careful What You Ask for in the Booth


Two letters were printed regarding the possibility that the Dodgers might not re-hire announcer Ross Porter, and unfortunately both were dripping with misplaced sarcasm and absurd negativity. These two guys don’t know how fortunate they are.

Baseball fans I know have great appreciation for Ross and his considerable knowledge and announcing skills. Have you heard some of the other announcers around Major League Baseball? Ouch!

I’d hate to see the Dodgers dump Ross for some way too hip 27-year-old hotshot with too much Physioc and not nearly enough Ross, or another former player with limited broadcasting experience.
