Dave Raymond. Is very likeable, sounds good, a big upgrade over Busby. Problem: he doesn't love this game it seems and not that familiar with this franchise. Exhibit A, granted this was the first game or two, Elvis makes an error and he says something about how peculiar or rare it is for Elvis to misplay a ball. mKay. Definitely rare if you don't watch any Rangers games. Exhibit B, CJ says, number 2 on the franchise list of HR rate against our franchise is Mickey Mantle. It's brought up in comparison to #1, the amazing Khrush Davis, and CJ didn't say anything about how obv Mantle never played vs Texas, they were all against the Wash Senators. CJ literally says Mantle hit this many HRs "against the Rangers" twice in two phrases. Long pregnant pause. Not a word from Raymond in light-heartedly mentioning that Mick, whose last year was 1968, last played four years before the Rangers' inaugural season. It's just the kind of thing you say if you're the play by play man. "Of course Mantle never played vs Texas." But no. Man that was weird.
