I have not listened to all of the Brewers tv broadcasts, but it seems to me that for most of them Brian Anderson is MIA. I don't mind Lepay, but where is Anderson?

He's working NBA playoff games.

You can listen to him on TNT right now calling the Warriors/Blazers game.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

Lepay's great doing football and basketball on radio, but he's not good doing baseball on television. I'm thankful to have access to out of town telecasts.

Yeah, he's ......adequate for baseball, and that's really about it. Sometimes his homerun calls are strange.

"He lifts a flyball to left..............AND IT'S GONE!"

I understand that you as the viewer can see the action and the flight of the ball, but the tone of Lepay's voice usually provides very little information or indication of drama until it's already happened. I realize he's not a "baseball" guy, so often the things that are going on are probably not processing until they've happened, but it's still a (minor) gripe.

I really respect Lepay. He's never been a baseball guy, but from his very first game he has been a professional. Does his homework on Brewers history, whats going on the league, and yes even knows how to pronounce the players' names. His delivery isn't as polished as BA, but that's to be expected.

First game back and he talks endlessly about how long the game is going. I get that a five hour game is long, but he couldn't get off the topic last night (5/14). He makes it sound like it is such a chore for him and others at the ballpark to be there. I came home at 10 expecting the game ( and post game) to be well done, but I was excited to see some baseball with the Crew hitting in the bottom of the ninth (tied). Every two minutes he's bringing up how long the game is going with a burdensome tone.

Just now, while typing this (bottom 5th 5/15) he talks about last night as another "long night at the ballpark". First game back? Stay home, Anderson, or remember that your viewers are trying to enjoy the game, even if you have mailed it in early.

Do you think you were so eager to enjoy the game because you got to miss 3-4 hours of it? I think you're nitpicking what he was saying quite a bit, especially if he's been there for the entirety of a 5 hour contest while one of the complaints about the game today is the game is getting too long.

Rock brought it up as much as BA. They were half joking about it, I think you read a bit too much into it.

Now that he's back I'm reminded again of why I don't understand how people can enjoy him. He does nothing well other than not be annoying. Vanilla would call him bland

Shouldn't the play-by-play guy be bland? [wink]

The radio team talked about it a lot as well. There were several jokes about the west coast games all being done before a 6:10 start in Milwaukee. And Andy Grammer having to wait forever to start his post-game show.

Quoting myself from roughly a year ago....again, first game back and he keeps talking about length of game! He couldn't stop if he tried! Seriously, keep track of how much he talks about pace of play, length of game, breaks in play, mound very sits, etc. I know there is horrible weather at the game today; still, I don't need to be reminded how awful it is to be working a long MLB game. It's like it's small torture for the man to sit thru a 3 hour plus game.
I am not calling for a replacement, just change of talking points.

I don't understand it either. Anderson is total snooze. Let the national broadcasts have him. Actually, no, he's brutal on NBA playoffs too.

I like Brian Anderson and think he is a very good announcer but I actually think Matt Lepay is better

Religion, politics, and baseball announcers. We'll never all agree, and not everyone has to love our guys, but listen to some other local or even national broadcasts and many will appreciate that the guys we have are pretty darn good.

Yeah I had to listen to the Padres broadcast on Thursday and wasn't particularly impressed. Their color guys is especially annoying.

I hate that whenever Brian Anderson comes up it comes down to "everyone else sucks" so Brian is good.

My bar for liking an announcer is not high. It begins with the announcer actually liking to be at the ballpark.

Last week I was in Michigan for business so I had the Tigers broadcast on. With men on 1st and 3rd, the analysis was "..the guy needs to put the ball in play so the guy on first can run this way and the guy on third wants to run that way." Even used the teleprompter.
