With Scott Graham out, and former Phillies outfielder Gary Matthews in, the announcer’s booth is going to look mighty different in 2007. Harry Kalas, Chris Wheeler, Larry Andersen, and Scott Franzke will return. What does all of this mean? More Wheels! More play-by-play for all us Wheels aficiandos out there. More laughing, more banter, and more Wheels-isms. The updates coming in to the Chris Wheeler Glossary are going to overload their email system.
The jury’s still out on Gary Matthews. We don’t know whether he could actually bring something to the theoretical table, so why assume he won’t? Still, it would be great if he just plain sucked. It would give a lot of blogs a lot of cheap and easy material (which I live on).
