That's right. Houston may have just lost 100 games, but they've still got one of the top five TV broadcast teams in the business.â†µ
That's thanks to a recent reader survey done by FanGraphs, where readers were asked to rank their team's broadcasting team and provide comments on it. What were the Astros fans saying about JD and Brownie?â†µ
• "FanGraphs and other analytical blogs have been mentioned on the broadcast before. While the team may suck the Houston fan base is lucky to have such a good broadcasting crew to get through the season."â†µ
• "We, as Astros fans, are lucky to have these guys. They can be quite funny and informative at times. Maybe not the sharpest at play by play, but very entertaining."
• "They are the only reason I will watch the Astros lose over 100 games again this coming season."
My favorite part is JD's Seifeldian references. Can't get enough of those! Oh, and Houston topped both the Yankees and the Red Sox, along with all four other teams in their new AL West home next season. So there!â†µ
