    It's just a cold. He'll probably be back in a couple of days. It's not the first time he's missed games due to colds and flu.
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.

        Exactly. That's why he should stay at home for a few days, rest up and get well.

          I was watching him do the game on MLB network the other day and it reminded me of how much I really like him. He truly is the best broadcaster today. Get well soon Vin...

                He should take all the time off that he needs.

                I'm already having bad Chick Hearn flashbacks.

                    So Hearn stepped in for Scully in the past?

                    Being a great basketball announcer does not necessarily translate to other sports, no matter how many movies Hollywood puts you in. I remember when he did boxing, and generally was unprepared to talk about fighter backgrounds, possible strategies, etc. Kind of makes you appreciate it more when you've got a skilled person doing what he's suitable to do.

                          No, Chick never did baseball.

                          The Dodgers always had other broadcasters besides Scully to fill in for him when he did golf, football, game-of-the-week, or illness.

                            No dude, the whole dying thing.

                            Obviously you're not a golfer.

                              Vin Scully is Exhibit A over why I hold on to my radio/boombox. And BTW, I don't even live within the range of Dodger broadcasts. There will never be another.

                              Get well and soon.
