Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Astros Could Make A Case For Eschenfelder On The Airwaves

Posted 06-19-2021 at 08:47 PM by case44


I know that he's just filling in while number one guy Robert Ford takes a few days off, but I think Kevin Eschenfelder handles these radio duties very well on the Houston Astros broadcasts.

What really stood out more than anything is his handling of the post-game show, what has easily been baseball's dullest and worst. Ford tends to get a bit disoriented during those post-game shows, but Eschenfelder's initiative makes listening a lot more palatable. This is something that the Astros need to consider if they make future decisions with their broadcasters. Perhaps they could have Eschenfelder in the mix with Steve Sparks and Ford, or they could have three new guys. While Ford is capable of calling a good game, maybe that post-game show (and, perhaps, even the Astrolaunch pre-game) could use a new calling card. The Texas Rangers have retooled their radio broadcasts a couple years ago, so maybe Houston should do the same.

Eschenfelder? Radio? I'd lobby for it.

    Case, what do you think about Correa going to the IL again? He's trying to make a statement to get himself re-signed in Houston, but he's not going to convince the brass with another stint on the injured list.
