Everybody's Talking to Keep the Talk Out

October 17, 1987

In Larry Stewart's column of October 9, he stated that Vin Scully, Jerry Doggett and Ross Porter worked separately (in a one-at-a-time-format). I, for one, hope that format continues with Don Drysdale.

When sportscasters talk to each other in the broadcasting of any game, they are not talking to me, us, the audience. It's as though they're at a game by themselves, watching it and talking to each other.

I stopped listening to Bob Starr and Joe Torre (on televised Angel games). Could not stand the "Joe, Joey, Bob" back and forth. Jim Palmer and Tony Kubek talk too much and keep talking through the action and crowd noises. I turn down the (TV) sound and listen to the radio.

Scully's style of broadcasting is a delight. He's always talking to us; making us part of the game; letting us enjoy it with him.
