Mike Flanagan Replaces Buck Martinez in the MASN Booth

I was happy to see this release from MASN:

MASN, the television home of the Baltimore Orioles, announced that Mike Flanagan will join the Orioles broadcast team as a color analyst for the 2010 season. Flanagan will make his MASN debut in the broadcast booth for the Orioles game against the Oakland Athletics on April 15th.

I was no fan of Buck Martinez at all and nearly anyone would have been an improvement but I always thought Flanagan did a pretty good job in previous stints doing color for TV.

Reportedly, MASN will also have other former players rotate in for color analysis including Eddie Murray and Brady Anderson.

And how are Martinez's new fan's embracing him? I'll include this photo of Martinez from Birdland Banter and their caption.

Cito and some old gray haired woman watch players workout. What? That's not an old woman? That's Buck Martinez? Buck, time for a hair cut man.
