Moron the Catch

Here's the MASN clip.  Listen to it.  Don't you want to jam an icepick in Rob Dibble's ear? Shut the hell up with the grunting and the clapping and the "Yessss!"ing.  Not only is it embarrassing, it shits all over the moment.

Do none of the producers at MASN realize this?  They're pros.  Why isn't their broadcast team one?

Contrast that with the excitement and joy of the radio booth.  They handled it well.  This is just pathetic.

Of course given the rest of the game -- wherein Dibs rooted for Reyes to pull a hamstring and implied that he was on PEDs -- it's par for the course for the ol' meathead.


  • You may have a point here. When showing the highlight clip of the catch, MLB Network is running the Charlie Slowes audio over it instead of Carpenter and Dibble.

  • Having peeked inside the broadcast industry a bit, I'm not sure who is a lower form of life: used car salesmen or broadcast producers. Tough call.

  • What incentive does MASN have to put good broadcasters on Nats games?

  • Who actually hires / fires the "talent"? MASN or the Nats? Their checks say MASN but I think it's the team that actually makes the decision on who gets behind the mike.
