Baseball on TV

In reading some of the responses to a thread I posted elsewhere at AN, I realized it's been too long since soliciting  "state-of-the-state" opinions from this blog's readers on what they like and don't like about baseball on television.

As I have said previously on AN,  we in the sports TV business do these games for you, the viewer,  not each other.  And we're always looking for ways to not only bring new fans to the game, but increase our viewing audience as well.

Having been a Major League Baseball television producer and director for over 30 years, I understand the need to connect with our audience.

Thus, I'd appreciate your thoughts about A's baseball TV coverage.  Please keep in mind that I am just the producer/director of the TV36 broadcasts.  Though I am a great fan of the game and am able to respond to "broad brush" comments and questions, I cannot respond to comments made about Comcast's coverage. What I will say is that the people who do their games are very talented colleagues for whom I have the utmost respect .  Those of us who live in Northern California are very lucky to have such a high quality regional sports network as Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area available to us.

OK, so have at it.  Let me know what you think.  I value your opinion.  In fact, in years past responses from this post have lead to changes in our telecast.  I eagerly look forward to your input.
