I was listening in the car, and he initially called Torres' double as a walk off homerun...then says Estrada stops at third. Uttter confusion there for a minute and an absolute brutal call by Sterling.

I assume Gleyber's shot was at least close to out?

+1

I had to run to the store and had the game on in the truck and heard the same thing. Not the first time he's fucked up a call like that and won't be the last but to call a walk off homer that turns out to be a double is about as bad as it gets for any announcer.

He's horrible at describing the action on the field and a real tough listen as far as that goes. He's all schtick, and might be good on TV, but sucks as a radio announcer.

yeah, I was a radio fan in the car tonight as well, and it's hard to take. I know he and Suzyn both have their shticks but for actual fans trying to follow the game they're a disaster. We're getting robot umps, I think I would actually prefer robot announcers who just call the game to Jon and Suzyn.

Jon calls the game like we're watching it and either forgets or just doesn't care that we depend on him to be our eyes.

My favorite is when he messes up then says "we don't have a monitor here in the booth" and I'm like yeah no shit, I don't have one here at the beach, or on my deck either asshole!

I just watched the replay of Gleyber's hit on MLB TV expecting it have hit near the top of the wall...it didn't even hit the wall! It hit the warning track near the bottom of the wall, bounced off the wall right to Pham. Not even close to a home run. What an absolute brutal call.
yeah Eman. Very true.  
Del Shofner : 5/17/2019 11:52 pm : link
Facing a LHP tomorrow in a day game after a night game, I'm guessing:

DJ 2B
Hicks CF
Voit 1B
Gary DH
Gleyber SS
Frazier RF
Gio 3B
Romine C
Maybin LF

Gardy and Kendrys are subs along with Their.
This is where the ball actually hit on Sterling's home run call  
BH28 : 5/17/2019 11:59 pm : link


Warning track, base of the wall, not even close. Even after he tried to correct his goof, he tried to say that it hit between the scoreboard and the State Farm sign. What an ass clown
Sterling really isnít to blame here.  
Hsilwek92 : 5/18/2019 12:11 am : link
The Yankees are for continuing to employ him. Itís been obvious for years his depth perception is lacking.

Haha, I'm not surprised in the least it wasn't close. I probably listen to about a third of the games on radio and maybe more. I hear him blow calls all the time or just not mention things like a runner moving up a base or how many outs there are.

He never fails to manage from the booth though and if anyone thinks guys posting here about moves Boone makes are bad, they need to listen to some Yankee games and hear Sterling give his opinions as facts about what should be done or what wasn't done.

I could go on and on about his shortcomings but it's futile. The Yanks evidently love him and I don't expect him to be forced out of the booth until they cart him out in a box. It sucks, such a storied franchise deserves the best announcer there is but goes for the schtick master instead.

Gio Motherfucking Urshela. What a ride it's been so far...

No quit. Ultimate resilience in a scenario where about 90% of the other teams in the league would have folded or been unable to keep "thriving rather than just surviving," as Kay usually puts it.

I love this team.

1st place.

That at-bat

From a 22 year old Gleyber was excellent. He fought off some really tough pitches there (even if he went outside the zone to fight a few of them).

Heís been looking really good lately.

LOL. Thankfully this Yankee team has a bigger pair than a lot of fans do.

Amen to that AB by Torres. Brilliant. And pretty sure not 2 weeks or so ago one of our resident twits declared him an overrated part time player or something like that.

Tanaka-Snell round 2 today should be a good one, letís go boys!

Try listening to Sterling for a third to half of all Yankee games for a season and get back to us.

Scooter was completely different. He rotated between TV and Radio, and wasn't responsible for calling every pitch of every game. Plus he was beloved for more than just his "Holy Cows" he was a Yankee legend on the field. He also made far far less mistakes than Sterling IMO, and if you had to listen to Sterling as much as some of us do, you'd realize that.
Sterling doesnít bother me

if anything the potential for him getting it wrong increases the entertainment factor. I canít imagine being upset at him for it.

Honestly though, do you listen to a lot of the games on radio? His mistakes are one thing, and last nights was a biggie but it's more the normal happenings of the game where he's bad.

He's one of the worst at actually describing the action. The Yanks could be in a defensive jam and he'll say something like "popped up" then go on to finish whatever point he was making before the pitch, al the while listeners thinking the "pop out" to be an easy out, only to have him finish his point and then tell us the ball landed foul about twenty rows back behind the dugout.

Honestly, that's just one of his typical calls. As someone who grew up with a transistor radio practically attached to me, and visualizing baseball,hockey, basketball games being described to me by greats like Messer,, and Marv Albert, it's hard to enjoy a Sterling called game because it's near impossible to visualize the game or count on him to accurately describe what's happening.

It's easy to say waiting on him to make big mistakes is entertaining but when he makes a call like last night with Gleyber, and we're going hell yeah Torres, great AB and walk off win for the Yanks, to find out it's only a double and they didn't even tie the game it isn't entertaining at all. Maybe after the fact and once they won we can laugh at him for it, but in the moment it's deflating and a cardinal sin for a radio announcer.
Glad they pulled it off  
Carson53 : 5/18/2019 10:29 am : link
I missed the rest of the game after another damn rain delay. They bailed out their manager as well, why bring
in Green in a tie game in the 8th. They sent him down to the minors to get straightened out, one appearance in a 7-1 game doesn't change that. Britton wasn't available.
You have Ottavino finish the 7th, and bring Kahnle on in the 8th.
The Gio magic continues, enjoy the ride.

When you think there Yanks hit a walk off two run home run only to still find them down by one run, it's not a fun experience. It's not like the ball was even close to gone either.

Vin Scully ??? I wasn't going to comment on this thread, but now that the name of that overrated shill has been mentioned I feel compelled. As I read to this thread I was thinking to myself that Sterling is being justly criticized for blowing the home run call, but the worst blown home run call I can remember was Skully's. He was doing the radio play by play in the '96 series when Leyritz hit THE home run. First he misjudged the fly ball, then when it went out he announced it as casually as if he was talking about the weather. Then he goes on about how Wholers ( the pitcher ) should have done this and should have done that. Not only did he blow the call for one of the greatest moments in Yankee history, but he totally disrespected it. Sterling is a better announcer at age 80 than Scully was when he was 50
I listen to games on the radio a good bit while driving  
mfsd : 5/18/2019 1:07 pm : link
generally Iíve considered Sterling to be pretty silly but tolerable, but the degree to which heís losing it has gotten much worse lately. Itís not uncommon for him to say the wrong name of the batter or forget how many guys are on base or how many outs there are. Add that to the silly schtick and not tracking balls in play, and itís become a very tough listen.

I think Suzyn Waldman has actually been staying silent more often than before, bc she canít get herself to correct him
