Albert and Fratello have a long history working together, and reuniting them in the booth prior to Albert’s retirement at the end of this season was an academic move.
Yeah, neither man has their fastball anymore, but nostalgia is always fun, especially when you get down to a broadcaster’s final games.
Turner hasn’t announced its plans for the remainder of the Eastern Conference Playoffs with respect to broadcast assignments.
