Sources telling me this afternoon that the Texas Rangers will today fire rookie play-by-play voice John Rhadigan.
We knew Rhadigan was off to a rough start, but this seems unfair. He went into the season with zero play-by-play experience and it showed.
Not sure what the Rangers expected. But not even half-a-season as a learning curve?
Update: Dave Barnett to replace John Rhadigan. Unfair Park has the details.
