Well, this is a little surprising. I'm certainly no huge fan of Harold Reynolds - I always get sort of pissed off at myself whenever I agree with something he says - but he was still among the best of the Baseball Tonight crew. Damn that's a sad comment. And with Gammons out, it's now Karl Ravech (a perfectly serviceable announcer/questioner guy), John Kruk (unable to form a cogent argument to support his strongly-held beliefs), Steve Phillips (put in the "former GM" role, but no one seems to understand he's an ESPN analyst because no one wants him anywhere near their front office), Jeff Brantley (blah), Buster Olney (a smart guy and good reporter who should not be on television - and knows it), and Tino Martinez (terrified of the camera, or never has anything interesting to say, or both). Way to go ESPN.
