Ben McDonald was on again tonight and he was really enjoyable as were the others, including Eddie Murray, Mike Boddicker, and Brady Anderson. I am no fan of Joe Angel and could take or leave Fred Manfra. I would love it if they would hire any combination of the players listed above as the full time play by play men. Or even just have 1 of them on for all the games. They really added to the radio experience.

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.
