Is This the Worst Home Run Call You’ve Ever Heard?

VIDEO HERE. MLB WON’T LET US EMBED THIS ONE. OH, THE HUMANITY!

It has to be close, right? We really shouldn’t pick on the Marlins, given their current organizational state. And we hate to rain on Adeiny Hechavarria’s parade (Three run homer and a win on your birthday?? NICE.). But…come on. Guys? Come on.

From the screeching voice begging to “Get it ready!” (of course, in reference to the awful eyesore of a home run structure in centerfield that lights up every time a Marlins player hits one out), to the faux excitement of another meaningless game in south Florida to the admittance that it was their first home run in Marlins Park in their 14th game…it’s just painful.

I may be overreacting, but I have an aversion to blinking lights and strange, fake fish. I think I was haunted by something like that in a nightmare once.

Anyway, whatever happened to “Get up, baby! Get up!” or “You can put it on the boarddddddddddd…YES!”? These young whippersnappers in the Miami booth need to take a lesson from the legends. Or from Taiwan, even. It seems that so far, the Marlins can do no right, even when they win.
