    Dusty's smart enough to keep his mouth shut. Morgan, on the other hand...

    It should take more than a bit of notoriety in Baseball-Past to get an announcing job. Joe Morgan? Crap. Steve Lyons? Crap.

    Hell, the only guys I can think of that were former players who are any good at broadcasting are Euker, Sutton, and Monday. Jerry Reuss is okay, too.
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    I'm actually a fan of all of the Dodgers color guys. Whether it's Mo or Psycho doing color for Charlie or Reuss doing color for Mo (which I HATE because Mo is NOT a good PBP guy), I have no problem with either of them. Joe Morgan, well. If he just stuck to calling & reacting to the game more often, I'd pay more attention.

    I think Monday does better PbP than Steiner. I really enjoy listening to Monday and Reuss together on the radio for the out-of-town games.

    Really? I love Charlie. He's no Ross Porter, but if I can't have Vinny, I love listening to Charlie & Psycho.

    Steiner's humor is absolutely moronic, and his verbose (and often obscure) references are more often wrong than not. He mispronounces names CONSTANTLY (saying things like "Encanarcion" instead of Encarnacion). "Nothing-and-xxx" drives me freakin' batty. He's nasally and he looks like hell in shorts.

    Charlie Steiner was the play by play guy for the New Jersey Generals of the USFL, I remember him from when I was in high school. Then he did the NY Jets on radio for a while in the mid/late 80s before going to ESPN.

    A little piece of trivia nobody needed. :D

    I'm another of the minority that actually likes Steiner and Lyons. They are COMPLETELY different that Vin, and I like the change of pace. Personally, I don't care for Monday, but he's alright as a color guy with Steiner. I can't stand him when he's on play by play. He's better than he has been in the past, but he rarely updates the score and that drive me nuts. If you turn on the game in progress, you could listen to Monday FOREVER before getting an update on the score.

    Has anyone heard who is getting the radio contract for next year? I can't stand listening to the current station because the signal is so bad. I will actually listen to the out-of-town broadcast on XM Radio before listening to the local station.

    At first I didn't like Steiner but he's grown on me. He laughs at some pretty wacky stuff and 30 seconds later, he'll erupt in laughter again. Oh well, it's 10X better than listening to Rory Marcus (sp?) or Brian Gayward.

    In regard to the radio contract, the last article I read had ESPN 710 as the front runner for the contract. I guess the Angel's contract ends after this year. I'll be sooooo happy if they land that contract. The station is much much clearer than 980.

    Edit:

    I found the article in the LA Times.

    A change in the air?
    Contract with 980 expires this season. With Angels leaving 710, that station is a possibility.
    By Bill Shaikin

    June 13, 2007

    The Dodgers could have their fourth radio home in 11 years next season.

    The team's contract with 980 expires this season. Three radio stations — 980, 710 and 570 — are bidding to sign the Dodgers for next year and beyond.

    The Dodgers face a different issue in negotiating with each station, aside from how much revenue each deal might generate.

    On 980, the Dodgers' current home, the pregame show mixes news and traffic reports with baseball coverage. The news focus there has left the Dodgers unable to air most weekday spring training games.

    The other two stations offer the all-sports format ideal for spring broadcasts and extended programming before and after games, but the Dodgers could be bumped elsewhere on the dial in case of conflicts. The Lakers have priority at 570, and USC football has priority at 710.

    The Angels plan to move their broadcasts from 710 to 830, a station bought last year by Angels owner Arte Moreno.
