So, Mike's been out and the FAN's gone to the bullpen for help. Wait, help? That doesn't seem right. They brought in Joe and Evan, right? The worst two regular guys on the station, correct? At least, that's what I thought. Looks like I was sorely mistaken. It appears that these clowns get some positive feedback here. Let's hash this out and see what we can unearth...
I do think this is the worst show on the FAN. I realize that that's only really comparing them to B & C and Mike but still...I mean, I suppose you could make an argument that a potential combo of other hosts could be worse (Neer and The Bull; Eddie C. and Somers, etc.) but now, they're horrible. Kinda like a cleansing of the palette between the morning show and Mike. Look, neither one of these guys have any sports knowledge at all. Their arguments/opinions, to me, seem echoed and each one has in some way or another adopted components of other hosts (Mad Dog > Joe and Mike > Evan). For a young guy, Evan has an impressive repertoire of sports history. Clearly he's read. Good for him. However, someone mentioned this week, via comment, that Evan brings a youthful flair to the air. I strenuously object. He rolls out tired old stats and opinions that are taken from curmudgeonly baseball scouts/writers/Mike Francesa and stands behind them. The exact opposite of "youthful" or "fresh". Joe, well, Joe is still pinching himself. He got himself a dream gig and just like us, he's trying to figure out how that happened. I mean, he has no fundamental knowledge of anything useful at all. Ask him to explain why an NFL team made a move for cap purposes and his head's liable to explode. To put it delicately, he's limited.
The posters here seem mixed. Some seem to like these guys for some reason or other. Let's hear it. Why? Are they better than the Big Fella? Will I ever find true love? Will David Wright ever be clutch? These are the questions that need answering today.
Oh yeah, I have long disparaged Kay's show because it's terrible. In all ways, a horrible listen. When pitted against Evan and Joe, however, it comes a little closer to entering the possible set. Wow.
