This is just wrong

Herb Carneal died yesterday. The Twins broadcasts aren't going to sound the same at all, even though for the last few years Herb only did the home games, and only the first and last three innings. For the last fifteen-plus years that I've been following the Twins, Herb's voice was the team, and whoever they have filling his shoes, well...it's not going to be Herb, and it's not going to sound quite right to me.

It's a hell of a way to begin the season.

I was going to post something about it yesterday when I found out, but I just couldn't find the right words to describe how much he WAS the voice of the Twins, and the only name and voice of the team anyone ever knew.

Seems the Twins can't start a season anymore without losing someone close.

My enthusiasm all drained out when I read that post.
