    Padres @ Cardinals Broadcast last night

    Was anybody else watching the FS Midwest feed last night when it gave up? How sweet was it to get to listen to Dick Enberg for 5 or 6 innings? As a kid that grew up listening to him call just about every major sporting event back in the day, I've gotta say it took me back. McGlaughlin (sp?) and Al/Rick do a nice job, but it was a nice change of pace to get to hear a true legend call a Cards' game. I'm sure Fox Sports and their advertisers were none too happy with how it shook out, but I can't imagine that too many fans were complaining.

    For me, this comes on the heels of listening to Vin Scully do a Dodgers' game on the MLB Network last week, and listening to Uecker do the 13 inning Brewers game vs. the Cubs on the radio when I was up in NE Iowa the Friday before last. That's quite the trifecta for a guy that reveres the game as much as I do.

    I was, but we were playing board games and not listening to the broadcast much.

    Loved it! Tyler Greene had himself a game!

    Can you imagine being 12 games under .500 on May 21st?? On the top, the Cards are in for a fight to win the division.

    It was sure nice to end our 4 game losing skid last night. Hope we can keep this going!

    Sweet baby Jesus, can you, just one time, post in a thread that involves the Cardinals without referencing the Cubs? I'm not sure that Dick Enberg calling a Cards' game and the Cubs being 12 under could be any less related, yet you find a way to throw in a dig. Honestly, it's sad. In case you haven't noticed, the Cardinals don't have a ton of room to talk right now when it comes to winning baseball.

    If you want to have a ******* match, start your own thread. I have no desire to see this one turn into what is probably coming now.

    Re: Padres @ Cardinals Broadcast last night

    As a Cubs fan who happened to be watching the Cardinals game last night, I was going to comment on how I really enjoyed the "dual" broadcast. It saddened me to see how quick it took to have a comment about neither the Padres or the Cardinals, and reminded me of the things that can make Cardinals fans so distasteful.

    It would be great if Fox Sports San Diego was available to everybody here in San Diego. It stinks that the Padres have a broadcaster like him and only a few can actually watch the games (because there really is no other reason to watch the Padres, they are a mess).

    Seriously? Saddened you. The Cubs suck! You should be sad about that. I will say that I thought it was very cool the way Wood went out the other day. I was watching and it was neat.

    FIFY.

    Also, the key to the Cards winning last night was the fact that I was unable to watch it.
