What a shame


That was my reaction Tuesday night, when I read that TBS and the Braves are dumping broadcasters Skip Caray and Pete Van Wieren from the national telecasts. Skip and Pete have been two of the best in the business for quite some time, and unfortunately it’s their longevity that’s probably getting them bumped in favor of Don Sutton and Joe Simpson. Skip and Pete will still be available if you’ve got MLB’s Extra Innings package, but for only a few dozen games (at most). And I’m sure going to miss them.
