Schilling and Kruk not on Sunday Night Baseball in 2016

Postby Banedon » Wed Jan 13, 2016 10:25 am

Jessica Mendoza and Aaron Boone are teaming with Dan Shulman in the Sunday Night Baseball booth next year. Schilling I guess is moving to Monday night, and Kruk to Baseball Tonight.

The cool kids all hate Schilling, but on air Kruk sucked far more. Glad to see him go. Should be a much more entertaining product now.

Kruk is unpopular with everyone. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all despise him. They think he's a moronic dude.

They both made a program that was unbearable to watch. The % of blame to each is meaningless. I felt bad for Shulman. He must have hated being in the booth with those two neanderthals.

Isn't there at least a little value in hate watching Krukie and Schill Walking Dead style?

no

the only time I would hate watch sports is if I heard an Alabama/NYY/BOS/Dallas type team was in the process of losing a big game. Then I would turn it on. Other than that, why would you hate watch a sporting event?

Nooooooooooooooooooope. Kruk is just a breathless, sweating turd and Schilling is just infuriating. Joe Morgan they ain't.
