I really thought that the clip that I posted earlier today was by far the most confused and lost I've ever seen an announcer. I was wrong. Who would have guessed that the same announcer, in the same exact game, would best himself. Ladies and gentleman.....Gary Thorne via SbB....
“Pretty good international team.”- Gary Thorne
Okay Gary....getting confused by players who have never played in a Yankee uniform is one thing, but completely misunderstanding the spirit of the Civil Rights Game is an entirely different issue. See when Steve Phillips brings up players like Curtis Granderson and Jacque Jones being on the Tigers they're not exactly foreign. They're African-American and they were both born in this Country. Both Curtis and Jacque are from America (Chicago and San Diego respectively)......THUS the f'ing reason that Steve Phillips brought the team up in the FIRST DAMN PLACE!!!!!!
I hate to be this blunt, but someone who is this clueless should NOT be broadcasting to millions of people (I also hate to be this blunt....but I actually feel sorry for Steve Phillips for once).

Gary Thorne Is Completely Clueless (Awful Announcing)
Update: Okay, for all of you people that think that Steve Phillips is the one to blame for this transgression you need to watch again.
