Great moments in broadcasting, apparently Sterling did this the other night
1) He called a pitch to Casey McGehee a swinging strike. Wrong; way off.
2) He next changed that to tell us that McGehee actually hit a fly ball down the left-field line, foul and out of play (Sterling went oh-for-three on that one).
3) He next noted that McGehee was on second, being held by the throw.
4) He next reasoned that McGehee reached second on a grounds-rule double (then why/how the throw to second?). Wrong, again.
5) He and Suzyn Waldman then said the ball must have crossed third fair, then first hit the ground in foul territory, thus it was fair (pure nonsense; that’s a foul ball).
One pitch, six wrong radio calls. What really happened? McGhee doubled down the line.
