The MLB Network Gets All Cursy For A Night

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

Matt Vasgersian is a longtime AA favorite, and while some of you don't like him as nearly as much as I do, I think this clip might sway you a bit. There was apparently an editing problem during a segment on Manny Ramirez, and thanks to this random guy's television, we have a clip of a great Vasgersian F-Bomb....

I appreciate the clip, but can we seriously get rid of the captions on the Youtube videos? Thanks. Other than that, not every network is perfect and I personally enjoy a good f-bomb from time to time.

(Thanks to EJ from NESW's for the clip)

There should be a patch to "MLB 09: The Show" with that clip so if, let's say you're playing and you do something dumb, he just says "What the fuck was that!?"

Vasgerian is the best thing going on The Show! I like him myself at least on the game, i don't know too much about him of live events!

And yet, what's going to be inevitably lost in all this is that it was a pre-tape and not Vasgersian's fault that it reached air. (Not blaming you, AA, but the commenters will inevitably kill him over it.)

I'm not a Vasgersian fan. Long, long before he ripped St. Louis a new asshole(and frankly, the city kinda dserves it), I thought he was an untalented hack. But what do I know; I'm just a guy "in my underwear", sitting in my crackerbox-size ground floor apartment(my mom's dead, Costas).

Hey AA, turning off the captions is easy. Click on the box at the bottom right of the video that looks like an upward pointing arrow (it's beside the fullscreen button). When the menu pops up, click on the 'post-it note looking thing' that's illuminated in red to "turn annotations off." Kick your feet up onto your desk and enjoy video.

I think Matt Vasgarsian is a petty good announcer, However, I think when he is doing pbp he can get some of that Gus Johnson-idis. He goes nuts on plays thnat don't deserve that much exciment. And by the way, I think he is doing a great job hosting MLB Tonight studio show. I'm so glad that now I have a choice for baseball news , isntead of listing and watching those nimrods at ESPN and Baseball Tonight.

I actually heard the f bomb live last night.
It was good for a laugh and for once I was actually glad my husband was forcing me to watch my umpteeth hour of MLB Network programming.

Matt Vasgersian is like a box of never know what you're going to get. Yes, I went there, and yes, it's true. Sometimes he's good, other times he's really good, and then there are the times he's downright awful.
