True story: a close friend of mine who is a big baseball fan and watches a lot of MLB Network asked me one day what the story was with Chris Russo. Russo recently joined the network after a long career as a New York radio personality, where he formed one half of the WFAN institution “Mike and the Mad Dog.” Russo’s new show on MLB Network has exposed him to a national audience, letting many more people find out what a wacky kook he can be.
In the video compilation above, Russo butchers the names of about 20 ballplayers in 50 seconds. Messing up that many names doesn’t exactly help one’s credibility as an expert, so it’s nice that MLB Network doesn’t mind making fun of its employees.
