Marlins Catcher Tries New Catching Technique

Monday, June 02, 2008

Marlins Catcher Matt Treanor is going to try and catch a ball with his groin (1:00 mark) and it obviously ends badly but I'm much more into Harry Kalas....

Hahahahaha. One ball and no strikes. ZING! On another note, I think I need a Harry Kalas CD where he's talking about Physics or something because I'd be in a deep sleep every night within 5 minutes.

Matt Treanor’s got nards! (The Fightins)

Mr. Misty May has to catch a bad break once in his life, doesn't he?

I guess some people really like Kalas, but his voice just kills me. Why take 5 seconds to pronounce a word when you could just use 1?

Kalas is slowing down and his age is starting to show badly. He still has a good voice for the game, but his time will come at some point. The only problem is that the Phillies don't have anyone decent to replace him. Yes, they just rehired Tom McCarthy, but he is a Mets fan and that hasn't sat well with some of the Phaithful down here.

Stop the hate, Kalas is a legend.

Not as good as the College Softball World Series catcher who took one in the pussy and ESPN showed a slow motion replay.
Booth was silent for 30 seconds.

I'll take care of Misty while he's on the DL.

We call that catching method:

"2 balls and a strike"

While the batter has one ball and no strikes, I think that the catcher has one ball and one strike if you know what I mean.

I'm still trying to figure out how Chris Wheeler has had a job for 20 some years.

The fact that Harry hates him makes me respect him even more.

When people say that Kalas has the tendency to be boring, I dont argue because they do have a point, if you arent into his drawl, his voice is definitely the equivalent to paint drying, but i still like him, especially because I peg him more with NFL Films than with play-by-play.

I noticed earlier this year that Harry Kalas has taken to EXHALING LOUDLY through his nose and into the microphone whenever he's not talking. "Utley is due up next.... hufffffffffffffffff... the runners will be going on the pitch... phhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..."

But I still love the sound of his voice. Personally, I love a soothing voice like that for a baseball game (partly why I love Vin Scully). Baseball doesn't need to be jazzed up by some overly-excited announcer -- it's not football or basketball.

And oh yeah, YOWWWWW!

Anon 1:25, I agree with that shot from the WCWS! What was actually even more funny was before the replay Kruk said "I think it hit her in the leg." He KNEW it didn't hit her in the leg, and still said it just to try to fill some silence.
