TBS Adds A Pair Of Announcers To Their Baseball Coverage

Thursday, March 27, 2008


We already knew Chip Caray was our guy for TBS' new Sunday Baseball games, but he needed an analyst or two. Well those two guys are Ron Darling and Buck Martinez...

TBS announced today its telecast team for its inaugural 26 “Sunday MLB on TBS” afternoon Game of the Week. Former Major League pitcher and Emmy® award-winner Ron Darling will be paired with Chip Caray during the regular season and will also serve as an analyst during TBS’ exclusive League Division Series (LDS) and American League Championship Series (ALCS) coverage.

Caray will also be paired separately with analyst Buck Martinez for TBS Sunday afternoon telecasts. Martinez will also serve as an analyst during TBS’ LDS coverage.
So the two will take turns teaming up with Caray and the season gets underway April 6th with the Sox and Blue Jays. Here's the schedule....

Sunday, April 6 (1:00 p.m.)- Boston Red Sox @ Toronto Blue Jays
Announcers: Chip Caray, Buck Martinez and Craig Sager

Sunday, April 13 (1:30 p.m.)- Chicago Cubs @ Philadelphia Phillies
Announcers: Caray and Martinez

Sunday, April 20 (1:30 p.m.)- LA Dodgers @ Atlanta Braves
Announcers: Caray and Ron Darling

Sunday, April 27 (1:00 p.m.)- NY Yankees @ Cleveland Indians
Announcers: Caray and Martinez

I think ttis are 2 good hires by TBS for its baseball coverage. I thought Darling did a very good job last year duritng the playoff coverage, and Buck Martinez is a good analyst.

Ah. I remember the good old days where Buck Martinez and Dan Shulman used to work the Blue Jay games on TSN. Nice to see Buck back.

How will Craig Sager get past the border? Isn't his suits an explosive substance?

I like Buck and of course I like Ronny but anybody with Chip Caray will be completely unlistenable. Chuck Schumer thinks the most dangerous place in the world is between Chip Caray and a microphone.
