    You mean to those listening for a while?

    Again, it's radio. The count and score need to be constants. I was taught in school at least once every three minutes, unless there's a reason to give it sooner. I had heard the egg-timer story, too, and I think that's a good barometer

    Think of it this way: How often, when watching on YES, do you look up at the scorebug, because you've forgotten the count? When you're at the game, how often do you look at the board for the count?

    That's roughly how often Sterling needs to give the score and count. I was also always taught to give the score whenever you're wondering what the score is. Because, if you're wondering, you probably have a few listeners that are wondering, too.

    Seriously. I heard much of yesterday's 1st game on the radio and I must have heard them say how bad their view was at least 8 times.

    I just thank god that phones exist that are able to give me sports updates. When listening to sterling, I rely on the MLB At Bat app to give me the score, who's on base, etc when I turn on a game late.

    That's my biggest peeve about Sterling - he doesn't update the score often enough.

    That's our point, though. You shouldn't have to do that. Again, his target audience are people driving in the car. You have to give those people everything they need.

    Let me guess what he said next, "just about in every other park in the majors was that a HR".

    I sat in my driveway on Saturday afternoon in the car waiting for a score update that never came. He told me that a scoring play was changed to a 7-4-3, but no update on the actual game score. We are halfway through the last season with him & her.

    He doesn't update the score because on some level he knows that a significant percentage of people tune in to hear the score and will leave once they hear it.

    He's the most bad-faith media person I've ever heard. He announces solely for his own benefit. I guess the silver lining is that it's only baseball.

    You know, I wonder if WCBS tells him not to tell the score too much... there are so many damn ads on the broadcast that the longer people have to tune in to hear the score, the more money CBS gets from ads

    No, this is just John being an awful broadcaster. No sales/marketing person is instructing the broadcaster to intentionally screw the listeners.

    In 2009, the Sterling /Waldman act was broadcast at top volume in the AUDI club. Thankfully they switched over to YES in 2010, even with the 5 second delay it is still better than listening to the radio. It was at YS in person where I realized how fake the 'it is high, it is far' stuff really was.....the ball was over the wall before he began his call.

    "Tex's Two-Step."

    I'm surprised ESPN beat Sterling to the punch.

    Speaking of Met announcers, how can anybody enjoy listening to Josh Lewin and his annoying lisp? He sounds like Sylvester the cat calling the game: "Johan Thantana went the disthanths for the Meths, giving up thix runs while striking out theven and walking four."

    Sterling might not need a home run call for Ichiro!

    I'm thinking with Sterling's love for Broadway he'll work in a Pacific Overtures reference but I haven't figured out how yet.

    Actually, it's more like Sterling's love of his own voice.
