Baseball Tonight has jumped the shark

John Kruk used to be funny when he was kind of a secondary guy on the show, taking a back seat to the others and then intervening for comic relief. Now, he is argumentative, obnoxious, and annoying, and he's just not funny. Steve Phillips is an incompetent idiot, the things he says are just terrible and its no wonder he traded Scott Kazmir as he made one of the worst trades in the past 30 years. He is truly an idiot.

Karl Ravech needs to go, too. His stupid nonsensical nicknames, that he seemingly pulls out of nowhere, are annoying and distracting.

The worst thing, though, is that a freakin' NFL show comes on after it. ESPN is too NFL-centric.

Sportscenter just spent 10 minutes doing a mock spelling bee with Mike and Mike.
they have reached new lows.

I was half expecting Steve Phillips to jump in and say ..

Haha. I actually thought that was pretty funny, though they definitely wasted too much time on it. It was either that or have Sportscenter again tell me that Donovan is going to the Magic.

But then again, I consider Mike and Mike one of the only reasons to have ESPN on anymore, so I'm biased.
