I thought it was a great opening to the game last night. The way they pieced together the soundbites of Murphy and Buck was simply awesome. I am glad I have it on tape. Great job.

Tough however listening to two St. Louis boys, McCarver and Buck. Thought Gonzales did a pretty decent job.

It really is painful listening to Buck and McCarver.... more so now that the Mets are playing the Cardinals.

Example one from last night: When Beltran doubled Pujols off of 1st base, it got a ho-hum response out of Buck/McCarver..... like that play is an everyday occurrence.

Example two: The HR by Beltran, Joe Buck sounded deflated when he made that call.

anyone have the intro uploaded? i was at a bar and couldnt hear anything

McCarver is horrible.

He only states the most obvious and even then makes a bunch of mistakes.

Example: calling Albert Pujols, Luis PUjols.

You've gotta have seen that Family Guy clip about McCarver. If not... to you-tube with you!!

I don't mind Joe Buck, I actually think he's ok, like velvet mixed with peanut butter, er something... :)

McCarver, on the other hand, is awful, just awful.

It's almost a blessing watching these games at a bar with no audio.

I couldn't agree more. Buck sounded pretty deflated after that HR.

Also, they need to cut down on the graphics and music big time...especially the music. This isn't MTV.

I liked Luis and he probably will be retiring soon so this is his second career.
