MJH on accountability
Earlier this week, I mentioned that Rangers radio play-by-play man Eric Nadel undersold a walkoff grand slam call by Nelson Cruz. I don't want to pick on Nadel, who readers have said is excellent behind the mic, but again last night he had no juice in his call of another late inning homer by Cruz. I can respect Nadel not going homer on the call, but give me some pepper. You can hear the call at the 48-second mark of this clip.

What do you guys think?
I think several things.
1) This thread would have been less confusing if you would have indicated you were quoting the SI guy.2) Never put much stake into someone who titles their articles "Poo Poo and Pee Pee Cards" and,3) As some guys said on Joey's Clubhouse post last night, Cruz's shot last night wasn't clearly out in a rainy Comerica park until it edged over the fence. Also, we still had to get 3 outs so it's understandable why Nadel didn't go balistic. Fwiw, I thought Nadel's call was still the best of the three on that clip.
