  • Daron Sutton mystery

    So sutton has been removed from DBacks broadcast for "personnel" reasons and management will not expand on this...he is a rather professional broadcaster and situation is fishy

    I read that it could have been from the Diamondbacks dress code. I'm sure it had to be more than that though.

        Honestly I never heard of him until today when you posted this but yeah it's gotta be something more than a dress code. What the heck do they want him to wear in Arizona. A suit and tie?

          Well, I hope it works out for him whatever it is. Daron Sutton got his start on Brewers TV and I liked him a lot. Brewers have a tradition of letting their TV play-by-play announcers go to bigger markets.

            Sutton and Brennaman sound alike. Ironically, Sutton replaced Brennaman when Brennaman took the Cincy job. I'm serious. They have the same tone of voice.
            Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

            If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

                Well it looks as though you may ve partially right...get this, you have a dresscode of polo shirts, but you think its more professional to wear suits, so you get suspended? I realize this may not be the whole story, but give me a break

                    Being fired for "insubordination" (quoting the article from above) is different than being fired for a dress-code violation. The term "insubordination" indicates an intentional refusal to not follow the rules of a superior - not forgetting to match your socks a few times. If it is true that Sutton refused to follow dress code rules (or any other rules from a superior) on multiple occasions (again, if the article is right) , of course he would get fired. Who among us wouldn't? I can tell you right now I would be fired if I told my boss that I was not going to follow the dress code. Its not like the bosses walked in on him and fired him on the spot for wearing a skinny tie or something.

                    If the "insubordination" didn't happen, then it really is a mystery.

                      Welp, all I can say, is bring him back to Milwaukee. I'd love to hear him, BA, and Rock in the booth.

                        The media will miss this part, but in 1953, Red Barber went to Spain in the off-season and came back with a boina--a beret. He wore it. The Brooklyn Dodgers objected--their sponsor, Schaefer Beer, which saw it as advertising wine, and Walter O'Malley, who couldn't stand Barber. They ordered him not to wear it. Lylah Barber said if he quit wearing it, she would divorce him. He said they had the right to dress the talent, so he took it off on camera and wore it at other times. The Dodgers didn't try to renew his contract that season, and the boina didn't decide it, but it was part of the clash between the two Walters.

                        I should note that The Vin wears a jacket and tie during the season and no tie in spring training. Also, if the Mets had done that to Lindsey Nelson ....

                          I like BA in the booth. Bring Sutton back to Milwaukee to do play-by-play with Uecker on the radio!

                          Daron, come back to Wisconsin! We have brats and beer!

                          Ironically, the Brewers are playing about as well as they were when he left.

                            From the article linked by Zito75: "Without going into detail, another source said the Diamondbacks have had various issues with Sutton for years." So this could have just been the last straw, so to speak.
                            They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

                              How about we put Daron, BA, Rock, and Ueck all in the same booth. Rock, Ueck, and Daron would be drunk telling awesome stories while BA tries to keep everyone on track.
