It’s interesting that the networks have gotten better at keeping broadcast teams together longer, and they develop a rhythm (ok, maybe not Al and Herbie). Meanwhile, more local teams are forgetting that fans become tied to their local announcers. The Dodgers have at least five different color commentators working with Joe Davis or Stephen Nelson (and we were accustomed for years to Vin not being there all the time), and the Red Sox have about as many radio people joining Joe Castiglione. It’s unfair to the announcers and to the fans.
