OBrien's blanditude probably makes him incapable of anything more than a lukewarm mic.The mlb.tv feed keeps coming back from commercial breaks ten seconds before the announcers are ready. Just now we got O'Brien mumble-singing Build Me Up Buttercup to himself. Before the bottom of the 4th, we came back to Youk saying "too soon?" and OB agreeing "yeah, too soon."
What I'm saying is: we're lined up to get a bad hot mic moment if they aren't careful.
