Yes, the idea of baseball without Vin Scully is difficult to compute. Although I have never been a Dodgers fan, I would often listen to their games on the radio just to listen to Vin. He had a neverending store of interesting stories.

Tom was born near L.A. and lived there until he was 15, so he was a Dodger fan from the start and he cannot imagine listening to a Dodger game without Vin Scully. Some of his earliest memories are of those games.

Can we please fire the writers for 2018 and hire whoever is scripting the Oakland Athletics season?
