    I like the option on MLBTV that allows for the sounds of the game -- no announcers, but i don't think it was available last season.
    As long as you aren’t stuck with an annoying fan all game, it could be ok.

    Remember that clown at The Trop that yelled "DAMON, DAMON,DAMON" the entire game?

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    His name was Robert Szasz. Haven't seen or heard him in several years now. Often there were so few fans at the game you could hear him the entire game.

    Some of you may be old enough to remember when the NFL 'listened to the fans' and televised a game with no announcers. (I think it was a Jets game, but I have no idea where that thought comes from.) It was a disaster.

    Nobody wants to listen to Jets fans for 2 plus hours. Horrible.

    I remember it. It was indeed the Jets, vs. Miami.

    I don't remember it being a disaster, but it was certainly weird. And the weirdness was to be expected, since it was such a radical difference.

    I don’t really care about Mendoza. The only announcers that annoy me are the ones who are really biased, loud and annoying. Michael Kay, Hawk Harrelson, Mariners play by play, Gary Thorne.

    The Hawk set a homer announcing standard that can never be equaled.

    The ChiSox games are unlistenable.
