  • mike shannon's call

    got this from botb:


    Mike: Mr. Pujols, the Cardinal clutch man, is at the plate. The potential go ahead run.

    Hagin: You're favorite individual in the history of baseball just showed up again....Little Abner.

    Mike: Ole Abner is always on duty, and I wanna tell you little David Eckstein....you talk about a tough, key guy, he's been the the inspiration all season long, he got the 2-out, 2-strike hit. Edmonds, the walk, and you can't ask for anything more than this folks. The Cardinals have had their chances, they haven't been able to execute or capitalize. Well, their big man is in. Berkman, I think he's their best hitter, and he came through with a 3-run home run.

    Well, here's Albert Pujols at the plate right now. And I could tell you this, it couldn't come down to a better situation than this. One for eight lifetime is Albert against Lidge. And tonight Albert has popped to third, he struck out, he's grounded out to the third baseman twice. He's 0-for-four. And that doesn't happen very often either. He hit 41 homers during the regular season.

    Good speed on the bases. Eckstein at second, Edmonds at first. 2 on, 2 out, Houston leads four to two. 9th inning action.

    The pitch to Albert.....swing and a miss! He went after the curve and he was fooled.

    Burke deep in left center, Tavares pulled over in right center. Lane pacing in his right field position.

    Albert digs back in. Open stance, deep in the box. Bends at the uh, knees. Holds it down on the end. Lidge is ready. With 2 on and 2 out, here's the 0-1 pitch. It's coming....

    Swing and a long one! There it is baby, the Cardinals take the lead as Albert Pujols comes through in the pinch and the Redbirds lead this baby 5-4! What did I tell ya folks? David Eckstein The Man. This could be a CRUSHING BLOW, A CRUSHING BLOW to this Houston club!! Albert Pujols, you talk about a Most Valuable Player, how is that baby??!! Whoo!!! That thing left the ballpark in a hurry. A 3 run home run and the Cardinals lead 5-4!!

    Little (sic) Abner and Ole Abner are not one and the same. Wayne needs to get his shit together.

          I've noticed that, too. His comments to Mike are just a tad off-kilter, too ingratiating maybe.

          Wayne came up big with Jed's 12th inning blast last year -- it was his best call, I think -- and hopefully he can retire "kissing it goodbye" for the truly monumental postseason home runs.

          KBF, you're expecting Shannon to be Jack; in many ways, they were the perfect compliment, one all heart, the other more lyrical.

                  I was joking about the choo-choo call. I definitely don't expect Shannon to be Jack. Mike's great in great moments. The only thing that bugs me is when he forgets to say what's going on the field because he's selling tickets to the next homestand.

                          Isn't that the singular Mike Shannon moment, though? You hear the glove popping several times while he's off talking about Willie McCovey.

                            I was not near a tv during the ninth so I had the radio on.

                            As soon as Albert hit it I still held my breath waiting for it to fall short on the warning track.

                            He said it was gone as soon as it hit the bat and I knew it was too soon, a typical overreaction by Mike, his exaggeration was going to piss me off.

                            And I waited.

                            And then he talked about how far it went and I was happy as hell. I could not wait to see the highlight to see if it barely cleared the wall, which I still figured it did since I knew Mike was loaded.

                            For once, he got it right about the distnace it cleared.

                            Shannon gave me chills.

                              Terrible, inarticulate call by the worst announcer in Cardinal history. Awful and unmemorable. He's from CBC, what can we expect?
