Ron Cook is so anti-A.J. Burnett, it's disgusting.

In a related note, Ron Cook continues to prove he is a moron.

But he's a 5-7 pitcher. Pirates have had a bunch of 5-7 guys over the last 20 years. I just don't see what's special with him. :pop: :pop:

When you say ESPN, do you mean ESPN Radio 1250 970 or like, actual ESPN?

Ron Cook is the kind of guy who would inherit a fortune from a relative he didn't know and he'd complain that the relative didn't make the effort to get to know him.

this can proven by wasting a few minutes of your life and reading his ridiculous piece in the Post Gazette on how Walkers brilliant baserunning was just as responsible for the Pirate win yesterday as Martin/Burnett, huh Ron? Bases loaded and ground ball to third...3rd baseman steps on third and throws home eliminating the force at home....Walker gets in a rundown and the Rockies get confused at third base, if Torrealba throws to third and the third baseman tags Walker coming back you have the DP, but it was Cutch that confused Torrealba by standing on third instead of heading to the dugout after the force. Walker just ran until he was called out or safe, which is what he's supposed to do, this was Torrealba's fault for not knowing the situation.

Agreed. Maybe I'm wrong on this and he has a lot of contacts in baseball, but I don't see what he would bring to a national broadcast.

I used to love Dejan, but he has turned into a jag since he started at the Trib.

Crap. Stuck at work. Listening to the FAN, and Pony's show is on, first time in a long time I am listening. It still sucks. But other stations just get bad static.

I'm listening to da Fan for the first time in several months. Their playbook is out:

Bring up a topic that they know will intentionally antagonize the audience and then berate them for expressing the expected opinions.

I caught da Fan last week not on a commercial for the first time in long while last week. First thing I hear spoken is Ron Cook say "you can definitely feel it, its almost throbbing" and I quickly shut of da Fan.

This was in the middle of the Cardinals series and I'm going to give ol Cookie the benefit of the doubt and assume they were discussing the buzz around the city after the first 3 wins, but I will never know for sure :?

So I had to come into work early since our new VP arrives today, like pre-6 AM early, and the discussion is basically mocking the fact that there is so much obvious hatred between Vinnie and Cook and that it's noticeable when each one does the show solo. The afternoon show knows it, Dunlap knows it and has made a segment about it, I'm guessing Fillaponi has mentioned it, and now the Morning Show has mentioned it. Doesn't the station see anything wrong with this?

Cook misses his BFF Bob Smizik. That's why he hates Vinnie.

No publicity is bad publicity. People are talking about the show.
