    Is Shulman Bad for the Broadcast?

    Don't get me wrong, he's done well on ESPN and generally is good at his job. But for the Blue Jays, is he really a good fit? I find he's knowledgeable but a combination of boring and serious, which is probably what a lot of Blue Jays fans don't want IMO. This is noticeably rubbing off on Buck as well. I'd prefer someone who is a little more relaxed... Tabler obviously, or where is Darrin Fletcher? He was great.

    Buck and pat can't hold Shulman's jock. I would give my left leg to have Shulman for all 162.

    I have MLB.tv and whenever Shulman isn't calling the game, I will watch the other teams feed (unless it's the ChiSox...ugh)

    Same, but then Buck is still there and drunk. Hearing his voice is like nails on a chalkboard.

    Ok so you think Shulman is better than the others at drawing viewers? Sorry but I disagree... he's monotone and boring, tonight's game has been terrible.

    Only the casuals like Buck and Pat cause they're strong and play the game the right way...

    Tabler and Buck, for all their faults, actually have good chemistry. The flow of their broadcast is good and they don't step on each others toes. That said, it's like listening to 2 old guys sitting in the row behind you. And you can hear them babble on about a bunch of stuff that is wrong and it's unnerving but you don't/can't say anything to correct them.

    But like I said, they do have good chemistry- so maybe Schulman upsets that chemistry a bit for you? I think he's pretty good otherwise.

    I loved Fletcher as a colour man, but there's no comparison between Shulman as the pbp guy vs Buck, it's like comparing Usain Bolt to a 1-legged midget in a sprint

    Shulman is awesome. The fact that we might be getting potentially more of him next season is extremely intriguing.

    Shulman is not a Reed Johnson fan.

    Shulman is a God.

    The three man booth is horrendous.

    I do like Buck a lot better as the colour guy. Fire Tabby into the sun.

    I wish we had Jessica Mendoza.

    I'd really like to hear a Shulman/Sidall broadcast. I really don't like Buck and Tabler is just awful.
