Never cared for wheels, he knew the game but I felt he acted like no one watching knew anything about baseball. Sarge I could tolerate but was nothing special. I believe it had to do with the new tv contract they signed.
Wheels was a master at stating the obvious but you're right, he knew the game. McCarthy, on the other hand, still doesn't know when a ball is gonna leave the park. I'm watching on tv and can tell it's a homer. If he's OUTTA HERE, I won't be disappointed.
Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious
I remember when he first started he was with Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn. Wheels was kind of a side light who Kalas and Ashburn made good natured fun of if I recall. At that time he was kind of grating but Kalas and Ashburn kept him in his place. When he started he didn't take himself too seriously and the three were good together.
Never really listened to him as he got more air time as I had moved out of their radio coverage.
