Hey TBS finally listened to me! I told them to pick up HR for the Playoffs last year but they were probably (and understanably) waiting out the whole lawsuit thing. Reynolds and current NESN analyst Dennis Eckersley will join Cal Ripken and Ernie Johnson this Sunday at 2pm for the unveiling of the All-Star teams....
“We are excited to add analysts to our studio show with the on-air credentials and on-field experience of the caliber of Harold and Dennis,” said Jeff Behnke, SVP and executive producer for Turner Sports. “We look forward to providing their insights and opinions as fans and players around the country learn who will be representing their teams in the 2008 MLB All-Star Game.”Random but certainly interesting. As far as "Selection Shows" go, the MLB All-Star Game doesn't really top the list, but with that many different personalities involved I might have to check it out. Hopefully this leads to HR getting a role in this year's playoffs because I'm not watching his random interviews on MLB.com.
During the telecast, TBS will exclusively reveal the All-Star Game starters elected by fan voting, as well as the player selections and manager picks to round out this year’s AL and NL squads. Throughout the hour-long telecast Reynolds, Eckersley and Ripken will provide in-depth review and analysis.
Oh and TBS, no Tony Gwynn is a good move.
