Normally I would agree that Jon Miller takes the cake as the best announcer, but if last night was any indication on what the rest of the season is going to be like, Sunday Night Baseball is going to be getting TIVO'd a lot and fast forwarded through. He and Joe sounded completely off and I foudn them to be stammering and at a loss for words the entire time.

Actually its Anthony Reyes from St. Louis, not Al Reyes. Al Reyes is a setup man for Tampa Bay.

Tough to win the WS when you get swept by the Royals!
