    I think she would be terrible at PbP.

    Wouldn't know until she got the opportunity to do it. Wouldn't be hard since the bar is set so low with Sterling.

    I appreciate the fact that she has worked her tail off for decades but her voice is one of the worst on radio and always has been. If they're going to make a change with play by play, for God's sake make a real change and bring in new blood.

    Thanks re: the Avatar, dude. Go right ahead.

    She’s terrible at what she does now.

    She did play-by-play on YES for the Yankees when YES initially began. She was awful. (everything was a "line shawt" at someone)

Its nothing major like his voice or anything. It’s a bunch of little things that made listening to these last two games so rough.

    Yes. I agree. His play-by-play isn’t all that bad. It’s mostly the little catch phrases. They seem so forced.

    In response to both of you, I feel like Suzyn should have been given the chance to do play by play. Is there a reason either of you are aware of that she’s not? All these years of being the sidekick. She’s earned it.
    I honestly don’t think I could handle Suzyn doing play-by-play. I don’t like her voice, and her little “ticks” wear on me during the game as it is. That said, I think she gives a good interview, especially if she has a little time to prepare. She can also sing the National Anthem, which is not easy to do. It’s really nothing personal, I just don't enjoy listening to her .

    Back to Riccardo, I agree the “guilty of putting the Yankees in the lead” or whatever he said, was pretty bad. Maybe he is trying too hard at times.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    She tried it at the beginning. It was painful...."LINE SHAWWWT!"

    It would probably be worse now...

    EDIT: Just saw Tom's post....sorry for saying the same thing.

    He’s trying to emulate John but with his own spin. We don’t need another one

    I don’t recall ever hearing her do play by play. I guess her voice doesn’t bother me as much as it does others. To be honest I like listening to her more than John when I listen to games on the radio. Her stories are far more interesting. As crazy as that sounds.

    If you had, you would not forget it.

    Oh. You mean like now? I thought you meant when Sterling is there.
