miller is very underrated. i like him.
i love kalas, but i cannot stand to hear him doing baseball because of his work with NFL films.
everytime that i hear him doing baseball play-by-play, i expect to see the player run in slow motion and while listening for an orchaestra to chime in.
one of the braves announcers (pete van ieren) said that when you do radio, you need to paint a picture that is capable of turning into a visual for the listening audience.
if there is the smell of popcorn in the air, then tell it. if the grass is so green that it looks like it's neon, then say it. if there are some kids in the stands having a good time, then say it.
