I completely agree. But he's not above criticism.
At this point, Uecker most definitely IS above criticism. Yeah, maybe he's not as sharp as he once was, but who is? Almost all of the criticism I've heard regarding him has seemed to come from younger fans, who are accustomed to every game being televised, and up-to-the-minute stats, replays, and commentary in the palm of their hand. I'm not saying this is you, btw, just an observation I've made. Most younger fans have no idea what it used to be like listening to radio games before the internet age. We live in a fast-paced world now, but baseball is, and always will be, a slow-paced game that leaves plenty of room for storytelling and improvisation from a radio broadcaster - the things that Uecker excels at. He's a living legend who be greatly missed when he's gone.
