Saw this clip in an article about the switch from Boone to Arod. The lean back after the foul-off and the jog to first are perfect.

Jon Sciambi would've been good as well, but that's a good booth.

I was really hoping he was going to be the guy to get the job as well, but overall should be a solid booth. I feel like Vasgersian is going to try to be the show and talk over A-Rod and Jessica though.

The three-person booth concept is a mess, though. I don't know why they insist on it. Two-person is cleaner

It's a non-issue if it means Boone won't be there to mansplain Jess Mendoza

Mendoza is great. She'd be more qualified to manage the Yankees than AFB.

Man, I miss Grantland so much and The Ringer is just some weak imitation at this point. The articles written by R. Jazayerli on the Cubs for Grantland are some of my favorite articles of all-time. He continued writing for The Ringer, but I haven't seen an article from him in a long time.

Simmons has really fallen off as well. His mailbag used to be somewhat funny and enjoyable. I have no idea what happened to him...

Whatever it was it happened a decade ago. He was unique and fun in the late 90's early 00s. But he was neither by the time the Red Sox and Patriots were winning every other year.

The Score’s first Bulls broadcast will be Saturday, when the Bulls visit Los Angeles for a matinee with the Clippers. Chuck Swirsky still will handle play-by-play with Bill Wennington as analyst and Steve Kashul on the pregame and postgame show.

Thank God, I always forget what station the Bulls are on when I'm in my car and too lazy to program it.

who was that local sports anchor/reporter who was on CLTV and got caught up in some creepy sex scandal of some kind in the mid-late 90s?

Was it greeny? He interviewed me when I was playing high school football and I've always thought he was creepy.
