Dan Gladden, PbP/Clr, MN – Rookie Year: 2006. Sounds half in the bag during second inning of a Thursday day game. Middling former player bonus points galore: A career .270 hitter known as “The Dazzle Man” with a World Series Grand Slam. His voice is strained, stilted, and tainted with years of greenie usage. Ups the professionalism when burdened with the responsibility of a play-by-play inning. Really spreads his wings as a color man. Strong aversion to using Twins players’ given surnames in favor of y-ending nicknames (Gibson -> Gibby).
