      I listened to him for nearly 90 minutes this evening.


      Eh.

        Small sample size and all. Listened to a few innings of Ricardo and Justin Shackil the last couple of games.

        My take: Ricky is good, but he entertains Suzyn too much and is strictly play by play. In what I listened too, Suzyn was still talking about what kind of pitch was thrown, and that would lead to her doing the Suzyn ramble. Ricky and Suzyn were also more likely to talk about things other than the game. Could be because they know eachother better than Justin and Suzyn do….

        Justin could carry the game by himself, doing somemof the analyst side and play by play. He didn’t really leave much for Suzyn. I commented in another thread that he barely acknowledged her at times. Honestly, it was a much more enjoyable broadcast.

        Again, thats just what I heard which wasn’t really too much…definitely prefer Justin over Ricky but both are better than Sterling.

        If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

          Word is she dressed up like Suzyn Waldman, but gave herself away when she used Vitameatavegamin as the lead-in to the injury report.

            In the past I've been able to get them to synch up by pausing the audio for those 10 seconds. It works!

              Good take on Ricky. He tries to be similar to Sterling, same kind of inflections, a bit of the same shtick on big plays. He's not terrible. The issues is Suzyn. She just goes on and on saying the same thing and she gets in the way of the play by play for no reason. She tries to explain the play and just can't. Ricky gets caught up in her and ends up stepping on her (because he needs to). Sterling seems to be so used to her that he just saves the play by play for after the fact when she winds down.

              I think it's great that Justin just did his own thing. I wish I heard a bit of him. Of course, he probably knocked himself out of the running for any long term gig since the idiots in charge of Yankee broadcasting go for, well, the wrong type of broadcast.
