Jim Price wears a cup to the broadcast booth

Recommended Posts

I don't believe autism is in any way hereditary.

If autism spectral disorder is primarily due to genetics, how could it be anything else?

I legitimately think you are in more jeopardy walking down the street than Price is in sitting in the announcers booth. So I guess the question that should be asked Price, is if there is ever a situation that he doesn't' wear a cup?

Except in KC. They need to wear SWAT helmets in there.

Is there reasonable evidence yet that this is the case?

Last I knew, that was the prevailing opinion, and the genetic correlation varied based on placement within the spectrum. They have identified the disorder in fetuses. I guess it could depend on your definition of reasonable, i suppose, but I tend to defer to the experts in cases like this.

Not wander to far OT, as I am doing anyway, but if the shift in prevalence is real, which is a muddled question as well, there would have to be at minimum some set of environmental triggers to go along with genetic predispositions, since the gene pool isn't changing that fast.

I wish I could get the broadcasts on the radio... I would like to listen to Dan & Jim. Haven't been able to hear a Tiger broadcast since WJR quit.

MLB audio available on the web for a full year for the price a couple trips to MacDonalds. Pretty hard deal to beat. Listen live, listen later from the archive, every MLB game, mobile device or PC.

I can get them on the radio but I buy the subscription just for the higher audio quality, availability on my phone, access while traveling, ability to check in on other games, and avoidance of Red Wing and Lions broadcast conflicts.

You can also get the audio for free if you buy the MLB at-bat app for smart phones, which I think is either $10 or maybe $15 at the most.

yes - good point. - In fact that is the way to do it. Unless they changed it since last year (and they should!) buying the app included gameday audio on the web but NOT vice versa. If you bought the audio first and then you bought the App, you had to write for a refund on the gameday audio purchase (which they would do, but why bother with the hassle? - just buy the app first.)

This happened to me because my gameday audio had auto-renewed but I wanted to add the app last year (or yr before - forget which) after I had upped my data plan enough to use it more.

Did laugh at that one. Big fan of Dan, and I've really come around on Jim over the last several seasons. Sometimes he talks too much, but not lately.

Dickerson might be the best in the business. I can take or leave Price, which is probably a compliment since I dislike most broadcast analysts.

I finally got a smart phone this year and I listen to MLB at-bat all the time. I like the convenience, but I find that the audio quality is not very good most of the time. It's not loud enough and sometimes it disappears.

the other option, which costs more per month but also gets you more product (viz, music), is to get an XM receiver and subscription. All the games are on satellite radio, though I don't think you always get both (home and away) broadcasts from every game like you do from MLB.

We've been lucky to go from Ernie to DD on the radio. It's almost enough to help forget Rick Rizz, who has gotten better in recent years, but sucked here. Goodbye baseball!

Rizz wasn't very good, but the paring with Rathbun was an even bigger mistake.

Rathbun had a huge chip on his shoulder. Had no interest on working with ernie after they brought him back. That is what did him in. Rizzs was good and could have worked but I think the tigers and wjr wanted to get Beckman in there. He was worse....

Beckman is OK for football, but I thought he was kind of a fish out of water doing *UM* football. I agree though, I never cared too much for him doing baseball either.

"fastball right down Woodward...."

"Cruze control"

WTF?

Woodward? He said that at TIger Stadium. Woodward's like a mile away.

Really. Maybe Frank was an East-sider, no West-sider would have snubbed "Michigan Avenue" like that....

Woodward runs down the middle of Detroit so I take the phrase to mean right down the middle.

I agree with Oblong on this one. When you are sitting on Michigan Avenue, referring to Woodward when you want to say 'middle of the street' is a needless - almost 'outsiderish' reference.

Yeah.... It was a huge reach for a catch phrase. At that point in time I associated Woodward with the suburbs. Had no connection to the tigers. He just wanted to reference a road. Would make a little more sense today I guess. But yeah... I am from Dearborn so Woodward to me was where they had the dream cruise in Berkeley and Royal oak and Birmingham.
