    I, for one, appreciate Wolfman's Braves updates.

    I think they would regret selling pieces to upgrade this team.

    GTFO. All of her softball experience makes her more than qualified to be a MLB color commentator.

    The HR derby is the only place that Berman's schtick played halfway decent but, even there, it had grown tired.

    And her talking the entire game has been awesome on Sunday Night Baseball.

    Shulman's out... it'll be interesting to see who they replace him with. Hopefully they get rid of Mendoza too. Baseball finally has some good up and coming color guys (Smoltz, A-Rod) but none are at ESPN.

    From what I've heard she's better than the majority of the guys who have Baseball experience.

    She's certainly better than some and seems to bring analytics to the table more than former ballplayers who are old enough to be commentating, but I'd rather her role be filled a full fledged baseball nerd. No baseball experience (or penis) required.

    Mendoza is fine as a color commentator. Shes still growing into the role and I think she will get better, but shes not worse than Aaron Boone or Eduardo Perez or anyone else ESPN is throwing out there. It's still a step up from the days of Kruk or listening to drunken Sutcliffe ramble on.

    Lesbianist here though.. Berman was awful at the end of his run. The HR derby from an announcer perspective wasnt any better either though. The whole thing was a pretty basic shitshow in it's first year post-Berman. The only Berman announced HR Derby positive was he such a bigger name than the rest of the commentators everyone else shut up during his HR calls. If they had the same people calling the HR Derby, and just slowed the hell down and let the action run more instead of acting like fans, things would have been alot easier to take.
