The Wilpons jumped on the discount Chris sale gave...which is sad to call it a “discount”...but that’s how it played

I will preface this by saying I don't like ARod. However, I do like that he knows and appears to accept he will be forever linked to PEDs and really tarnished what would have been a Hall of Fame career.

Last night on ESPN's SNB telecast they had Hank Aaron in the booth for several innings. I could listen to him tell stories for days. He is truly a fascinating, outrageously talented and yet unbelievably humble man. So one of the commentators, I forget who, asked Aaron what it's like to be probably the ONLY person in the world who could walk into Cooperstown and say, "where's my locker?". Before Aaron had a change to respond, ARod said, "well I certainly can't!".

He's a true baseball legend. Would've loved to have seen him play, but sadly that was before my time.

#1 on any Braves' fan's bucket list (besides seeing a repeat of '95 ;) ) is to meet and shake that man's hand.

I heard that A-Rod kept mispronouncing Markakis as Markarcass. I really dislike that broadcast team.
As do I. I had the sound down once Aaron left the booth. I’d rather watch in silence. And the Mets are on ESPN again tonight. I am hoping SNY has it too - Google says it will. I can’t do two nights in a row with those 3.
A-Rod mispronounced names, got some names wrong, and mixed up some position players. Horrible telecast by ESPN. And while I did enjoy the Hank Aaron portion, is it necessary to have the camera on the booth the entire time and not on the field? I tune in to watch the game. Not an interview.

I hope it is on SNY for you. Last nights Braves game wasn't on FSS and blacked out on MLB of course. Only choice I had was ESPN.
