I don't know if this is the place for this gripe, but I hate how every time a Philly batter gets on base (no idea if other local broadcasts also do this), the announcers say, "Chase Utley is safe and secure at second base. Safe and secure. Metlife."

have any of you guys seen the commercial featuring the skeezy foreign-seeming dude who tries to sell you totally bogus sports paraphernalia? and at one point he says, "want minnesota?" and he snaps his fingers and two twins appear, one wearing a "mini" shirt and the other wearing a "soda" shirt, and he says, "twins!"

If you were a car dealer in the NY market creating a radio spot for Mets games, why would your script include the phrase "home base"? Maybe let someone who likes baseball read it first?

reds radio broadcast: 'if you reach base 96% of the time, you're in the hall of fame. if you have a 96% customer satisfaction rating, you're guaranteed rate'
