Oh no

Tino Martinez is a new Baseball Tonight analyst. This makes me very sad. Unlike, say, Kruk, or Brantley, or Dibble, or Bowa, or Valentine, I actually like the guy. But he's terrible. I'm hoping it's first day jitters, but I'm not so sure. He had all offseason to work on his very first "Most Important Thing", and he came up with "Any team can win the World Series". Yeah, Tino, like your 2004 Tampa Bay Devil Rays (70-91)? Ugh.

[that said, nice job by ESPN2, carrying 4 consecutive Opening Day games. Hard to complain about that.]


  1. Admiral Ackbar? A baseball analyst? What is this world coming to?

  2. On a positive note - nice matchup tonight Halladay vs. Johan.

    Not sure if ESPN has it, but Extra Innings does. I'll be flipping from the Sox game frequently.
