A Mets Classic Telecast The Other Night

It was Mets-Yankees from 05/21/05. It looked like a Classic Pitchers Duel, with Kris Benson for The Mets and Randy Johnson for the Yankees:

Usually, SportsNet NY(SNY) would have their commentators, Gary Cohen, Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez. But, this was a different duo doing the game. They tended to talk more. Blah, Blah, Blah, was the order of the day;

It was the Bottom of the 7th Inning with the Mets leading 2-0. Up comes Korean Reliever, Dae Sung Koo. One of the Commentators made this observation in regards to Koo "In my mind in this early part of the Season, this is the Biggest Give Up At Bat";

Koo swings and the Lead Commentator exclaims "Ohhh and rips one into right center field. Take your words back. Up against the wall and Koo who's thinking about a triple, holds with a double". The Other Guy, often referred to as a Baboon, exclaims "You led me into it, I didn't say a thing";

My Goodness, SNY was repeating a FOX Telecast, replete with whooshes and chimes;

One thing about THIS Telecast-THIS Duo never lets a good game get in the way of their braying on and on. How many times could the Lead Baseball Analyst say "You Led Me Into It"+this Classic Line, "They Needed a Derek To Get Jeter Out";

Mets won it 8-1. The Duo on SNY, looked like THESE TWO. No Wonder The Duo caught fire from The Professor Thom's Red Sox Regulars during The 2007 World Series-they don't let the Game speak for itself;

"MLB ON FOX" Season Premiere is Saturday, April 11th, '09 at 3:30PM, EDT(1930 GMT);

WHERE is Vincent Scully, WHEN you need him?

So many television commentators feel the need to speak when silence would be so much more eloquent. Sad.

True, Jim:

These Two Doofi, talked on without silence;

It was the 10th Season Premiere of "MLB On FOX";

During the whole SNY Repeat, they never shut up even once, and Tim babbled on like a Baboon;

-uck never stopped talking, either.
