    I kind of like it. You have to focus and it keeps your mind sharp. Your imagination helps with the plays.

    Hockey on the radio is just plain terrible.

    I don't even WATCH baseball, let alone listen on the radio.

    I enjoy it on a warm summer night out on the deck or by the fire pit with an ice cold beer and me best gal by my side.

    I have an app on my phone where I can get both home and away radio feeds. I'll turn it on occasionally and skip around between games just to her the different announcers.

    Yup, the national broadcast anchors are terrible.

    I got Sirius/XM so I get the same broadcast as the AM but without all the static and background hum. It's a few seconds delayed though.

    Only problem with this is syncing up the TV broadcast with the radio.

    True. The tv is delayed 10 seconds. The radio gives me spoilers

    When you listen to the games on Sirius online, there's several minutes of delay. Very annoying.

    I listen to the A's when playing during the day. Makes the work day pass quicker. Would listen everyday if Bill King was above ground.
