Coleman Boos Macahdo, Gets Reaction From Jones

“The bit accomplished what Coleman sought to do, the radio host generated a reaction, not only from Adam Jones, but many Orioles fans on Twitter who strongly didn’t agree with the in good fun stunt.”

Coleman Boo

Last week, former Oriole Manny Machado returned to Baltimore for the first time and was received warmly by almost the entire ballpark.  Orioles fans haven’t had much to applaud the last few seasons, so they cheered their former star who reminds them of a brighter time.  

There was, however, one person who booed loudly when Machado stepped into the batter’s box and although he was mostly on an island in that decision, 105.7 The Fan morning co-host, Jerry Coleman tried to rally other Oriole fans to join him.

“He plays for the opponent, he doesn’t care about you!” Coleman told fans in the upper deck of Camden Yards before doing his best Jamaal Magloire  impression, turning a packet of papers into a makeshift megaphone to project his booing toward the field.

Even with his megaphone, it’s highly unlikely Machado heard the boos from Coleman, but they garnered the attention of Manny’s former teammate and current Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder, Adam Jones.

Jones’s tweet led Coleman to explain the art of a radio bit.

The bit accomplished what Coleman sought to do, the radio host generated a reaction, not only from Adam Jones, but many Orioles fans on Twitter who strongly didn’t agree with the in good fun stunt.  One person who Orioles fans haven’t had an issue booing this year is Chris Davis, but the team’s highest paid player didn’t get into the game.

The Big Bad Morning Show with Jerry Coleman, Ed Norris and Rob Long airs on Baltimore’s 105.7 The Fan weekdays from 6 – 10am.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
