Hall of Famer Don Sutton has emerged as the likely candidate to replace Tom Paciorek as the analyst for Washington Nationals broadcasts. Sutton has apparently edged out Steve Stone for the job.
Don Sutton's son, Daron, left his job with Milwaukee to replace Thom Brennaman in Arizona. Thom Brennaman left to go work with his father Marty in Cincinnati. Marty Brennaman's former partner, Steve Stewart, was let go by the Reds. And so ends this tale. Unless the Padres hire Stewart. They need a replacement for Tim Flannery. But one ever hears the Padres TV announcers because they're not part of MLB Extra Innings. And if you did, you would have to listen to Matt Vasgersian, which is a multimedia attack on your senses. Vasgersian actually can make you smell things incorrectly. He's that awful. Well, unless you're talking about Ted Leitner and I better not say anymore.
Oh, and the Nationals brought back Jose Macias from Japan. Because no team is complete without a bad hitting, average fielding, utility infielder.
