It was a nice touch this season to see the older Orioles rotate the 3rd man color commentator. I especially took notice that none were true "homers", but fair and honest.
Love hearing that about Ben, he was my favorite O for years. Don't agree about Thorne though. He is a hockey guy, he is still learning baseball, and it shows in his coverage, when he tries to explain why people are doing certain things and he has NO idea what he is talking about.
