2k had the best team, Gary Thorne, Steve Phillips and John Kruk. Very conversational, really felt like a tv broadcast. Sign that team!

We need Hawk Harrelson to do the commentary. I could hear “he gone” every time I struck somebody out. Only half kidding....

My suggestion has been somewhat similar, especially for Matt because he calls games often:

Take real life audio of what he's said (you can apply video context so he can see it), and ask him to repeat it with every bit of nuance and emotion (or lack thereof) involved as well.

What SDS needs to do is find a way to shorten lines and include more variations of saying the same thing, even if it's the same words, but just another way of delivering it. Diversity of different ways to say "strike one" even matters to me, IMO.

Re: Play-by-play/Commentary

Do you all think play by play commentary will improve with the power of PS5?

It's funny that the last gen with Rex Hudler and Dave Campbell dealt out more unique commentary then any game on the current gen.
