    He's no Mark DeRosa, but from what I've heard he's pretty good.

    Just happy it's not an ex-player. I even lost steam for Glanville once I realized how terrible most ex-players at at this so soon after retirement.

    Wanted Karros, but haven't heard this guy before so maybe he's good.

    I'm just so relieved it's not Plesac.

    Couldn't have done better. Deshaies is one of the best in the business.

    As far as this particular job goes, this is a home run hire.

    Haven't heard him personally announce a game...but everything I read says he's very underrated and extremely good. Have to wait a few months to find out for sure!

    Abide!
