    Rangers announcer suspended 2 games after 5th base, robbery, and henchman rambling...

    AN DIEGO (AP) Texas Rangers television play-by-play announcer Dave Barnett will undergo an evaluation and miss at least two games after he gave a rambling, incoherent description of game play that confused viewers.
    During the eighth inning Monday night in San Diego, Barnett said a runner was on ''fifth'' base after a ''botched robbery.'' He then mentioned a ''henchman'' before the broadcast went silent for several seconds.

    In a statement Tuesday, the Rangers said Barnett would be evaluated over the ''next few days'' and miss the rest of the San Diego series. The team says Barnett believes he's had a recurrence of migraine headaches.
    Los Angeles TV reporter Serene Branson was diagnosed with migraine-related symptoms after a similar on-air incident during the Grammys last year.
    Radio announcer Steve Busby will take Barnett's place.
    Here is the link to the rambling...

    Sometime rants like that are a indication of something much more serious...

    Hopefully he is ok.

    I don't think you can call it a suspension... more like a break.

    It's also possible he just had a brain fart, or was confused temporarily, or was distracted and trying to keep play by play by going while not paying full attention.

    We don't really know.

    If this was still the 1930's they would probably cut out a piece of his brain for doing something like that

    A lot of people think it's a minor stroke.

    I wouldn't call it a suspension. A leave of absence perhaps.

    This can be signs of something like alzheimers or dimensia (sp?) really hope it isn't though for his sake.

    That was tough to listen to. Really hope Dave is ok, but I will say I love Busby as his replacement.
