re: Pittsburgh Pirates wearing glorious 1979 throwbacks - oilfieldtiger
I like him as part of the broadcast team. The city is pretty excited about the '79 uniforms w/ a lot of pieces on stuff from that era. People love that team, and there's still a lot of stuff from it that's part of the modern Pirate era (like the "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" banner that gets trotte...

re: Francisco Liriano's line of 6IP 3H 0R 5BB 10K was the first in MLB history - oilfieldtiger
He was starting to labor pretty good in the 6th too. Loaded the bases w/ 2 walks and single, and got a pop up and fielder's choice to get out of the jam. Had he looked stronger they probably would have let him come out for the 7th since his spot in the lineup wasn't due up for a while, but I got...

re: Should MLB mandate speaking English in interviews for US markets? - oilfieldtiger
Some of the guys just aren't comfortable speaking English, but that doesn't mean the don't speak it pretty well. Starling Marte supposedly is a really gregarious and funny guy, but the broadcasters have said multiple times that he is not comfortable in his English to speak it live on the air. Greg...
