Lyons Without Claws
Yes! And it counts! Fox finally came to their senses and fired that racist moron Steve Lyons after he made one final thoughtless remark on the air. And better yet, they have replaced him with the superb Angels color man Jose Mota,who is everything that Lyons ain't - smart, insightful, classy. So it turns out Fox, whose coverage of the baseball playoffs is otherwise deplorably thoughtless and low-rent, does have a little horse sense after all. But it's just a good start - if you're going to pre-empt your entire Fall season launch for baseball, for Christ sake, compel your viewers to actually watch. Fox makes zilcho effort to engage casual fans, and that's one of the reasons why the ratings have been to sucky as of late. But dumping Lyons? A very good start.
