Awful Announcing tells the tale of some announcers mad at Gary Cohen. Is it because Gary mails in home run calls and often sounds checked out (hey, who can blame him with this loser team that has won one playoff game since the Wilpons left) – no…you see…
Monday night, New York Mets broadcaster Gary Cohen wondered what the Arizona Diamondbacks were thinking when they let the potential winning run steal second base in the bottom of the ninth of a 4-3 ballgame.
Wednesday, the Diamondbacks let Cohen know exactly what they think of him.
Diamondbacks pitching coach Brent Strom defended the decision to let Locastro steal second on behalf of manager Torey Lovullo, saying that the broadcasters were “idiots” for thinking it was the wrong move.
“I think Torey made a very, very good choice of playing behind Locastro, despite what the really smart Cohen and (Keith) Hernandez group had to say, because I think they’re idiots for what they said,” Strom said. “What if we’re holding him on and (Nimmo) hits a 22-hopper, a left-handed pull hitter with a right-handed pitcher, if the left-handed hitter hits a 22-hopper into right field? Now we have first and third again. It was just worth it to roll the dice with it.” (via Awful Announcing)
