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.

Had today’s Tigers game on the radio for a moment and couldn’t figure out who was doing color today with Dickerson?

Tivoking, feel free to back it up to the top of the post, where it said "Curly Howard said...", with regard to the munch.

Lozenge, Golumpki (Golumpka, Golumpkai?), regardless, the point is there is noise of consumption, a gnarly distraction.

I’m surprised no one in a position of power tells him to quit eating hot dogs on the air.

Had I been listening, I probably would've barfed projectiles.

Listening to Price is a treat by comparison.


Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)

Price and Dickerson are both awful in my book and have been for years. Price and all his “Price-isms” drive me nuts and I can’t stand Dickerson and his call of the game. Plus it would be nice to be able to turn on the game and have them tell me the score once in a while. You can go 5 minutes before they mention the score.

There are 32 of these jobs in North America, I have got to think the Tigers could do better than these two.

There's a "find the damn score yourself on your phone if you want it right away" trend among fans and critics. I've heard people bitch about the new Bally Sports TV graphics constantly having a ticker at the bottom of the screen. I don't agree with that on radio broadcasts, people have radio on when driving or as background noise while doing something else. Say the score.

I don't know that Ernie H. had an egg timer, but I have heard that concept offered as a way to see that you present the game score on a regular basis.

Not to nitpick on a fellow Detroit radio broadcast sufferer, but there are just 30 big league teams. No talk of contraction or expansion I have heard recently, getting the player$ and owner$ to agree on the next CBA may be a doozy of a story.
