From The Opponent's Feed™: Marty Taunted!!



Ah, the joys of the visitor's radio feed! Not only did the Chicago Cubs broadcast team share a laugh at Marty Brenneman's expense this past week, but the Giants TV team (featuring ex-major leaguers Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow) had some great shares this past series:

First of all during game one, they recounted how they had already seen Marty "yell at his son tHom like he was 10 years old" in public TWICE that day.

Then their cameras spotted a pair of Catholic nuns during the series finale. They surmised that they were in attendance because "somebody's in trouble." The guys in the truck soon worked up a split-screen graphic of Marty and the nuns. This went on until Marty noticed and got flummoxed.

Also, Mike Krukow gave some visitor's insight into Great American Ball Park's infield and mound. He says that the mound on the field and the visitors' bullpen mound do not match. Specifically, the mound on the field is much flatter due to the infield being turtle-backed (which it must be according to MLB rules and from a drainage perspective). Especially on GABP's field, the ground near the mound is so high that the mound itself cannot be what would be termed "normal height" elsewhere without violating the MLB mound height restrictions. The resulting effect, Krukow explains, is that the pitchers coming into the game have a tough time adjusting to the mound differential.

So is this anomaly only found between the visitors' bullpen and the mound (gamesmanship), or is there a similar issue regarding the Reds' bullpen (bad overall construction)?
