I thought he was good tonight. Definitely had a lot of excitement for the back to back homers, the Rodney DP and the final out.

He had a little slip in the opening. But I think that was more opening day jitters. I liked him.

Not because I wanted to see Hud, but this team was dull. I might attribute this snoozefest because of their work with guests in the booth but the rest of the game zzzzzz, too.

I really like Victor. He had emotion on the homers. I've said this before but he's nice to listen to. He's not too over the top, and frankly he makes me hardly even notice Gubi.

Victor is a little bland, the broadcast seems generic to me, sorta like if I was watching a marlins game, victors voice isn't familiar. Maybe in a few games but as of now the conection people had with wonder dog is gone and I think maybe they should bring him back for angels live.

I like Victor, he's a good mix between obnoxious and dull. I liked how when Gubi guessed Dean Chance for the question Rojas was like um, are you retarded? I don't think he got the inside joke.

I know, nobody wants to hear it anymore...BUT Rojas and Hud would be an all-star pair in the booth. I'm very happy with VR, but Gubi is just horrific. I'm sorry, but he is terrible.

I completely disagree about Gubicza. The only thing he was missing IMO was the right partner. Rojas is that (as Rory was).

i have to give Rojas some credit, the guy has a pretty good knowledge of the Angels for being on the East Coast the last year and a half. I like the way that he even stated there was east coast bias in baseball in his opinion.

Nice Adam.

Honestly though, I agree the broadcast was a little bland. Gubicza benefited before by interacting with Rory Markus, who had a pretty interesting yet calm voice, and he had a lot of little quirks / stories more typical of a color guy, while doing excellent play by play.

I liked Victor, but I liked Physioc and so many of you hated him.

But, Hudler brings an enthusiasm not shared by Gubicza, and as I said before after hearing his love for the Phillies on Mason and Ireland during the World Series, I want him gone. He isn't a lifelong Angel, playing only one or two seasons with the club. He has zero connection to the fans and his voice is boring. He doesn't add an extra dimension to the broadcast.

Hudler may not have been the best color guy, but he was fun. And Rojas I think would be able to keep him in check a bit more than Physioc did, Phys just laughed when Hudler said something absurd.

I thought Victor was great - great voice, great play by play - but Gubi... I'm just not feeling it. Just don't think he is the right man for the job. Came across as boring. Of course, this is just my opinion. I'd love to see Hud and Victor. (Hey, it doesn't hurt to hope)

Do you hold it against Rojas for liking the Royals? I don't have any problem with Gubi being a Phils fan, he is also a big Angels fan. I used to not care for him but now I don't mind at all. I think as time goes on he and Victor will work really well together.

he was good, but it just felt different to me. but i want to like him and will as he grows on me.....i really like the straight forward regular guy types like matt vasgersian or for duck fans, i really like the ducks broadcast team. none of these lame animated gimmicks or childish antics.

rojas has a good and listenable (is that a word?) voice that is great for us fans. his final out call seemed forced but overall i like him and glad to have him on board.

i like that gubi is straight forward in tone, but he seemed off last night...like he was trying to throw some random jokes and bring some hud into the booth since he took his job. hud was too much for me every day, but i really liked his insight and stories. i wish gubi brought some more of that aspect with him, i like the behind the scenes stuff.

it's their first gig together, im sure the chemistry will come around. i look forward to it.

Plus Rojas will get to know the Angels player more and more as the season goes on, which will help give it a more Angels vibe than a national telecast vibe.

It was great the way Rory would pick on Guby and joke around. That was good chemistry. For me the two we have now are just placeholders until they find someone better. They're good enough.

I'm trying to see the positives here, after all, this IS Angels baseball, and ther season is finally underway with one of many wins.

I do enjoy Gubi's techincal analysis of the game, especially the pitching. But he is not very colorful

Rojas is composed and a good play-by-play man. But together, they are BORINGGGG!

Please, please, please, bring back Rex the wonderdog. He was entertainng, colorful, passionate about the Angels and the game. Except for Joe Garagiola, Hudler is the best color commentator the game ever had!

THIS. I didn't hear them last night being in the stands, but watching Friday vs. the Dodgers I thought they were the best team in an Angels booth since Mario and Darren on the radio. Rojas ripping on the dude in the Halos onsie was hilarious.
