I remember him trying to interview Al Leiter in the Mets clubhouse after they won the wildcard in '99 and Leiter poured a bottle of champagne over his head. Kurkjian was so visibly pissed off but was struggling to keep his composure until he could get off-camera. It was hilarious. (I guess I can understand him being irritated though. His suit looked VERY expensive).[/b]

You can't be serious. Eckersley is the man (especially in interviews and on TV). But I'm not complaining that he didn't get the job. He's awesome on the Red Sox post game show "Extra Innings."

I think Kirkjen (SP?) knows what he's talking about... But sometimes gets a little too carried away with random statistics.

Reynolds is pretty good. I think he's great during the Little League World Series. He predicted last year how the Mariners would tail off and it would be the Sox & A's in the playoffs last yr. when the Mariners had quite a lead in the west. That impressed me.

I think Peter Gammons is great.

Jeff Brantley is pretty annoying to me, I CAN'T STAND Berman on Sunday nights referring to players with those nicknames (ex: Todd "Highway to" Helton & Miguel Tejada "the come, Tejada they fall")

1 name which has not come up (haven't seen him much on it this yr) is Rob Dibble. I'm not sure what I thought of his "Nasty Points."
