:( Mr. Price is the reason I don't listen to the games on the radio anymore. Regardless of the Tigers record, to me, listening to a ballgame on the radio is part of summer. Unfortunately I haven't been able to enjoy listening to a game because of Mr.Prices's habits of constantly feeling the need to add comment when Dan D. had said everything that needed to be said, and what sounds like the constant chewing .... eating, that goes on. And don't get me going on how his reading of adverts is undeciferable to my ear. These advertisers are paying good money to have their ad read on the air. Too bad they can't be understood.

Dan Petry did color on last nights broadcast in place of Price. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Doesn’t interject incessantly with pointless cliches like Price. When he did give analysis, it was well spoken and though out. What an amazing refreshing change!

Realist,Petry is a broadcast pro,NOT someone who spent two generations kissing Mr. I.'s a** and backstabbing Jim Northrup to get Northrup's PASS job,then going to radio when Lary Sorensen had his troubles,which he's happily overcome .

I'm listening to 'Peaches' on the afternoon game now. WOW ..... that's what good color commentating sounds like for a baseball game. Ben a while since I've heard appealing commentary. Win or lose Tigers, looks like I'll be listening until JP comes back.

Detroit News reports that Price has been off the air due to illness (virus). He expects to be back when the Tigers return from their road trip. Too bad. I have not missed him. Dan Petry has been doing a great job. In fact, Andy Dirks filled in as the color analyst last Friday and was not that bad. Both men have good deliveries, concise breakdowns of pitches/plays and are relatable to what I consider todays game radio audience. At 77, Price has become too predictable, routine and does not offer any effective game analysis. It's time to hang up the ol' buggywhip and pass the Ball Park frank to a fresh set of eyes.

In fact, I have seen Brandon Inge and Nate Robertson on Fox TV, and they both appear to be capable. Perhaps they could be considered as possible replacements for Price (or Gibson if his illness ever becomes an issue for him).

I'm wondering how long Shep and Jack are going to last. Jack makes a lot of mistakes and Shep is correcting him and I don't think Jack likes it. Many times during the Twins series Jack kept calling the Tigers the Twins, I'm sure it has to do with broadcasting so of the Twins games. He also makes mistakes on knowing how many outs there are. I'm also tired of Jack trying to predict the next pitch all the time. They still have almost the whole season to correct the things they do wrong.

Those two have had a lot of practice. When they played, they were obviously two of the more accessible interviewees on the Tigers. In recent years, James McCann filled that role very well.

I'm good. Turns out they had just been sitting in the same position for too long. One good scratch and a movement and I'm all set.
