Really glad Lefebvre gained control over his depression several years back. A really great story. Also glad he didn't get the Twinkies gig he was lobbying for when it was open a couple years ago.
Me too. Like everything about the guy as a broadcaster...informative, sense of humor, enunciates very well. Good guy.
TONS of props to Hudler. I was a fan of Frank White's candidness and sense of humor as a broadcaster. Hudler seemed odd and wrong at first. But he's taken off and I'm glad now KC made the change. If people listen closely, he offers up candidness, but does it in a subtle and easy-to-digest way.
As for Denny Matthews, his voice IS Royals baseball. Like his knowledge and he does a good job of entertaining the audience during the slow times of a game, which is most of the time. But his calls in big moments is....is...well, it's not good. Cain hit a double against the A's on Sunday to tie the game. After all the bad blood, feeling like we were on the verge of losing, Cain's tie-inducing hit was HUGE. Matthews' call was not...he called it like he'd call a grounder up the middle in the 2nd inning. And he's more and more the "get off my lawn" guy. Not faulting him. We all get more cynical and grumpy the older we get. But it doesn't work for baseball play by play.
