Ahhh, just like when Ernie Harwell used to do his poem about spring on opening day on WJR, the posters come out to bitch about Jim Price on the Michigan Radio and TV Buzzboard. I'm still pissed that Cumulus couldn't seal the deal to get the games on WJR again as 96.1 and 97.1 both suck severely in the East side of Toledo. So you're stuck buying a higher level SiriusXM Select sub if you want MLB games now (thanks for nothing Howie Stern)

All that plus his compulsive need to constantly interrupt Dan Dickerson.


Stepping into the broadcast, even with what Jim then offers hopefully being appropriate, that's not wrong. As the game begins, it's not the time for a Doctoral dissertation, which Dan seems to be offering so far this season. Feel around on mlb.com and see what else there is to hear, because Pat Hughes with the Cubs is light years better than Dan. Hughes also has more time in the bigs, but before he was Chicago's lead announcer, he was side man to Bob Uecker in Milwaukee and his abilities were evident then. (I blanch the most at "that young man" from Jim, which he offered four minutes into a game this week)

It's not munch, munch, munch. He's been using lozenges since his cancer to prevent dry mouth.

I’m really sick of Jim Price eating on the air. He can’t wait until the damn game is over before stuffing his face with hot dogs and popcorn?!? How unprofessional.

He has chronic dry mouth after 2 separate bouts with cancer and is essentially keeping his mouth in shape to broadcast by using lozenges and whatnot. It might even be an ADA-type accommodation that's made for him.

I do find it interesting though that they keep bringing him back, but only because he doesn't really bring much actual insight to the games any longer. He's basically just a series of interchangeable worn-out cliches that is now more parody than actual game analysis.


Wellllll... la de frickin da

I did listen to a variety of broadcasters a few years ago on satellite radio on a long trip. Almost everyone I heard was better than Price and Dickerson at exchanging comments without stepping on each other. I do agree that Dickerson can talk too much.
