Thankfully, I didn't stay up and watch Scott Baker implode last night (still recovering from the long weekend), but I did tune in long enough to witness former Twins utility man, Denny Hocking's audition for an announcing gig.
I wonder if Bert Blyleven gave him any pointers...like adding unecessary adjectives to player descriptions - ie. "He's a young 22-year-old" or "He is a strikeout-type pitcher." Or better yet, did he learn the secrets of the mysterious "Circle Machine"? I'm sure that would make Dick Bremer jealous.....
