I've watched a few games with Shep announcing. Sounds great to me. Knowledgeable, interesting conversation. Not sure what you're looking for, but I'd say so far, so good. I was thinking about starting a thread on the subject myself. You saved me the trouble. Thanks.

You expect a team broadcaster to not be a homer?

I used to call his WDFN show for years,and he sounds so anal retentive (he's a right-wing-nut,so what you expect ?) that he must be a fun partner for Terry Mills,and now for Gibby!!!!!

I think he's fine. I've watched a few games, I don't have a problem with him. I much prefer the local broadcasts over the National guys any day of the week! The Sunday night crew at least last year would try to over analyze every damn pitch and then if the game is a blowout try to bring their "fun" stories out to try to keep you tuned in. The girl former softball player that now works for the Mets and ESPN is so damn annoying. Just bring me the damn game, I don't need to be entertained!

Yeah that is the woman. She is competent but I find her annoying.....she is over eager in that broadcast booth and her over analysis of the game in my opinion

Mendoza was awful, so bad that I had to watch the games on mute and try to find the radio feed, which of course didn’t synch up.

My thought too. A local guy should be a homer. That doesn't mean they can't be critical when the time is right. But everybody knows the Tigers are in a rebuild and winning a bunch of games isn't on the table. So I'm not sure how much criticism is fair at the moment.

Yes. I have done the same thing when she was in the broadcast booth with Arod and can't remember who the other person was....maybe Aaron Boone. She comes off like the 3rd wheel, perhaps it it was just a "two man crew" she would be better? She would over analyze pitches, hits, discuss these stupid stories when the game gets out of hand. They come off like they need to "entertain" the audience......no thanks. I'll stick with the local guys

Shep really makes me miss Mario doing play by play. Mario’s play by play runs circles around him...
