There is something about this guy--I know people worry about his age but I think he ages like a fine bottle of rare chardonnay.

I think Scully has the chance to be the best he's ever been for 162 games this year. Every time he's on my television I'm happy. Hats off to Vin Scully, the best in the game. The best there ever was or will be. His draft position certainly wasn't high enough in any league format.

I had to pass on him this year. I reached for James Andrews instead. He just racks up the points, especially in visits league.

TRIED to rep/like both of these x 1000, but I have met my quota for "likes" for the day.


I actually would have drafted Marty Brennamen but he gets surly and often puts me in a foul mood.

I'm using a NA spot to roster Rob Dibble. My team needed some snarl, picked him up so he could tell all injured players they aren't injured to to "tought it out" & "stop being such a baby"

Look at that technique as he eloquently describes Yonder Alonso's life history. He even gives you the backdrop of Alonso's parents over in Cuba.

When Dodger Stadium is the canvas, and Scully is the man holding the paint brush, Scully owners begin to steal league categories. It's uncanny.

He absolutely factors in my nightly game decision - like you said, he just puts you in a good mood. Love sitting on the porch, few cold ones, nice west coast sunset, with Scully serenading my eyes.

The lady isn't big on him, I get a lot of - "Does that guy ever stop talking?" or "What the hell is he talking about?", haha. That's when I have to put her in check, lol.

as much as i hate the dodgers i'll admit Vin Scully is definitely a great broadcaster. but i'll never go out of my way to listen to him. i'll stick with Kruk and Kuip.
