  • Mets TV announcers are completely unbiased.

    Congrats to the Mets TV team. The Wall St Journal rated each TV team calling a game and kept track of each biased 'homer' call, saying, complaint, etc..or using the term 'we'. The Mets had zero ! So did the Yankees TV, Dodgers with Scully, Red Sox, and Toronto.

    The White Sox had 104....more than the rest of MLB combined ! Mercy ! You can put it on the board, yes.

    They're good - but this year for first time I've heard some light homerisn creep into tge SNY booth - more in form of overplaying the few Mets bright spits. Understandable - it's a business.
    Cleon Jones catches a deep fly ball in F. Scott Fitzgerald's Valley of the Ashes, and a second-grader smiles in front of the black and white television.

        So the all baseball knowing WSJ for you posts a N/A (not available) for both New York market announcers and that translates to a trusted sports publication?

        Rough when they do not even list David Cone or Lou Piniella are Yankee broadcaster and that the local media rips them for biased commentary.

        I remember Ken Harrelson was also a former Yankee announcer.

          Just because they don't have your favorite comics is no reason to bash the leading paper in America. They are not known for sports, of course, but they do have fair objective reporting for sports.

          Five of the broadcast teams made it through their games without a single biased comment: the Mets, Yankees, Red Sox, Dodgers and Blue Jays.

          Where did you read 'NA' ? Newsday? The Daily News?

            Your wall street journal. Seems the person who wrote the article did not do the chart. OB-US150_Announ_G_20120924204102.jpg

              No, it says there were zero homer comments. The N/A is in the examples column.

                Exactly...it means NOT ap·pli·ca·ble/ˈaplikəbəl/
                Adjective: Relevant or appropriate.

                There were no examples of them being shills ! Does not mean 'not available'. Doonesbury was 'not available' in today's journal.

                  Anyone that has ever heard Hawk Harrelson announce a game knows what a "homer" is. My Lord that guy is horrendous. I am hoping the Tigers catch and knock the White Sox out because of that yo-yo.

                  I actually heard one game when the Sox were losing by 4-5 runs and Harrelson said something like - if we get a couple of hits a couple of errors a walk and a homer we can take the lead. I wasnt waiting for the rest of the joke but he was serious.

                      I would not consider the Mets announcer shills of anyone and believe they do an excellent job, but defending the WSJ who failed to even list all the Yankee announcers or point out how many local media call them out for bias just is not consistent.

                      Is Yankee booth for homers? YES!

                      As the Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network’s 10th anniversary on March 19 approaches, it’s a question that must be asked after its president, Tracy Dolgin, described YES as a “homer network.”

                      His description, which appeared in the middle of a feature story on YES in Newsday, confirms what we’ve been saying about Al Yankzeera since it debuted in 2002. Yet by calling YES a “homer network,” Dolgin also cavalierly threw YES voices — who have vehemently disagreed with us for years — under the bus.

                      “I use the word ‘homer’ proudly, as opposed to a journalist fearing that word,” Dolgin told Newsday. “When you are watching a game (on YES), I’m very proud to say we’re rooting for the home team on our air.”

                      We’re sure Michael Kay, Ken Singleton, John Flaherty, David Cone and the rest of YES’ voices (and executive producer John Filippelli as well) are absolutely thrilled to hear their boss say that one of the skillsets he appreciates most is their unique ability to root “for the home team on our air.”

                      And of course there is past evidence of bias:

                        John Flaherty seems very fair and balanced. Maybe because as a catcher he had the toughest job on the field but he calls the game like he is still in that vantage point and does a great job.

                          They didn't fail to list them. The chart says they reviewed ONE game. The Yankees announcers for that game were Kay/Singleton/O'Neill. Listing their other announcers would not be right, since those announcers were not reviewed. Also, this study was about one thing......biased comments during broadcasts. It doesn't matter what local media think of the announcers. Not for this study, anyway.

                          However, for accuracy, it would have been better if they had looked at more than one game.

                            That's kind of the point, they don't have the resources to cover Wall Street properly, why are they guessing about the sports business which has nothing to do with wall street for most teams?

                            It's like the joke Forbes is. One person named Mike Ozanian playing financial expert with no access to any teams books just to draw in sports fans.
