Chris Berman is simply awful. In other news... the sky is blue and 2+2=4.

Last night was one of the most boring home run derbies I've seen. Chris Berman's coverage during these derbies is almost as bad as him stumbling through sentences during the NFL draft.

His excitement after every home run hit in the home run derby is annoying, forced and takes away from the excitement of an actual meaningful home run.

I understand the guy is a legacy but I really wish ESPN would let him go or make him retire.

Where can I comment?
