I totally agree. I think Remy is fascinating. His accent is thick and he sometimes pronounces words and names ridiculously wrong as a result ("Renterier"). Sometimes I think he overwhelms Orsillo with absurdity, and the entire half-inning will be off topic and hilarious.
I also agree with whoever said something needs to be done about installing transplanted Yankee broadcasters (McCarver) on nationally televised games. ESPN is awful and Joe Morgan is the primary culprit. During Sox/Yanks games they say the most base-level, rudimentary facts about players on each team, like none of us has been following all year (e.g. "though Mark Bellhorn leads the league in strikeouts, the front office seems to like his OBP")
This is an awesome thread. Mostly non-partisan and happily nostalgic.
