What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
No offense to Dave Barnett, but I miss the Josh entusiasm and animation. Josh and Tom were perfect. Nolan made a bad call on this one. I turn the volume down and listen to Eric and Brian. Dolgan has something. Listen to him on the post-game show on 103.3.
Side note: Congrats to Doug Melvin and his Brewers.
Josh isn't coming back, no matter how many of his fans write posts lamenting his absence.
Listen to lewins show on 105.3 the fan
Nolan has made some really bad calls on the public facing part of the Rangers. The Josh part, the Rhad's hiring, the most frustrating thing still beating us down during games those stupid advertisements.
I agree. And Rhads is a good man. He is funny. I know. That said, I get that Josh won't be back. He called the Fox game today and I watched just to hear him. Bad decision.
I agree. My family misses him and knows he won't be back. My 3 sons still yell "BALLGAME!" when we win one.
As do I. That, and "Hello Win Column!". Mark Holtz is rare company. I think Josh is there.
I don't get this line-up. Are we trying to win or lose the West? Tea, Quin, Gentry? I am lost...
I heard Lewin calling the Cardinals-Cubs game this afternoon...It was nice hearing him again, and he is ten thousand times better calling games than he is at daytime radio. Hopefully someone puts him where he belongs, which is in the booth calling ball games.
Speaking of the Cubs... I bet Thad gets that GM job. Hate to see him go, but he deserves that opportunity. Very sharp man.
Stupid line-up, stupid substiutions, stupid! And if Kinsler is gonna hit 20 plus HR, he ain't a lead-off hitter. Chavez hits over .300.... Duh! Damn Ron frustrates me!
I certainly do not miss Lewin, not one bit, had not thought of him in months until seeing this thread.
I miss Rhads...like I miss hemorrhoids.
I like how people just definitively claim that "Josh isn't coming back."
It reminds me of the early-season posts stating, "Texas isn't firing Rhads."
Well I am glad the Rangers got rid of Josh. I was tired of listening to him. Rhads was a horrible choice to replace and I am ok with Barnett. Would like for them to look around and get another PBP guy.
The last Angels series reminded me of how much I miss Victor Rojas. I still have not got over the fact that he works for the Angels as his voice will forever be associated with the rangers in my head.Every Time he yells 'Light that baby up' I'm thinking 'really, man?'
Yes, Lewin isn't coming back. Just as Rhadigan would be given two years on the job.
Oh wait...that didn't happen.
You gripe enough, they will make moves. Bring back Lewin.
I think Josh isn't coming back, because one of the folks I heard that was happy to see Josh gone was Grieve.
I assume the people who miss Josh Lewin are those who also enjoy fingernails dragged across a chalkboard.
I always see people saying that Grieve was happy to see Josh go, but I've never seen a reason why. Did he really dislike him that much and, if so, how do you know that?
Wow. I absolutely HATED Josh Lewin...he was an amateur mascarading as a professional. Good riddance. Rhadigan was a clown IMO. Don't miss either one.
Rhadigan was an absolute joke. Lewin is a premier talent in broadcasting... there's a reason he's calling games on Fox - he's really good. He's exciting, spontaneous, and calls a good game. Nolan went cheap here and got Rhads as a virtual no-namer with zero experience. Nolan should've ponied up the cash and kept Josh. And to those who say Tag didn't like Josh... erroneous. Erroneous on all accounts. Every time Josh and Tag were together, they were giggling like school girls.
BRING JOSH BACK!
Thank you, Chaboi!
It's been three months since Rhads was fired, and his name still comes up.
Josh Lewin was a gameshow host masquerading as a play-by-play announcer.
