Fairly and Hendu both gone!

So as painful as the upcoming Mariner's season is going to be, at least it will be a little easier to watch.

Ron Fairly already retired and today the Times is reporting that Mike "Little Rickey" Blowers is replacing Hendu and Valle on the broadcasts.

In the studio, Blowers seems like the typical ex-player analyst. Loathe to criticize the players and quick to attribute seemingly random events to heart, guts, and grit. He has a Bloomquist man-crush, but most broadcasters do, so....

At least we won't have to hear about what "the pitcher is saying" with every pitch or how stupid it is that the A's don't ever run (because clearly their 5 playoff appearances in the last 7 years show how flawed they are) and hopefully we will never hear Rizzs referred to as Rico ever again. Ever again.

Now can we call him Dave "I'm not paid to speak" Valle? He's two of the world's worst broadcasters all by himself.

I don't know what you are talking about. Dave Valle is a tre-mendous broadcaster, with tre-mendous skills. Isn't that right, Rico?
