Almost anyone could have been hired and I'd have been happy about it. Because ANYONE will be better than JJ. Standing next to the bench with your hands on your hips looking confused/upset is not coaching.
I think some of the hate for him is a little overblown. He isn't as bad as many people here would like to believe. He's not the greatest, obviously, and sometimes he ask stupid questions or drags things out too long, but a lot of other radio host do the same. I'd take him over someone like Finebaum any day.
I think when he first started, he was a lot more humble and it made for a better show. Since he's become syndicated, it does seem like he's gotten a little bit of a big head.
However, that being said, he's probably the best in BR out of the current sports show host. His voice isn't too bad for radio either, IMO.
It's hard to talk for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, so of course some things will get old. It's better than having to listen to someone like T-Bob for even 30 minutes. I could go without his "callic hiiigghhh" bullshite, but all things considered, he's not that bad.
Refusing to listen to an interview because Moscona is the one asking the questions is a little overblown.

The only way I can stomach that show is to catch some of it "On Demand" where you can scroll through the annoying commercials and all the uninteresting nonsense.
Just give me the meat and discard the rest. Don't have time for all the BS.
BTW, no way I ever patronize any of those sponsors. Those commercials are too annoying. (Same thing with all those that companies that totally crap up Tiger Stadium and Alex Box with the tacky permanent advertising) Not getting my money!............
