Who the hell is Jim Powell? And how do we use him to replace Chip Carey?
Reports today that the Braves have stolen free agent broadcaster Jim Powell away from the Brewers and Bob Uecker. The Braves are trying to pair him with longtime Braves announcer Don Sutton, but are having trouble securing him from the Nationals.
Question #1: Why the hell did the Braves let him leave in the first place??????
Question #2: What do you think Uecker would say to Chip Carey after about 7 innings of his inane ramblings?
Nobody could ever replace Skip Carey and Pete Van Wieren... but Joe Simpson and Don Sutton are enjoyable to listen to. Somebody tell Chip to shut the hell up. He's no Skip.
And how the heck can I get the Braves on radio here in Calgary? Any of these stations broadcasting on the internet???
