in the pregame he mentioned the Orioles had lost fifteen consecutive series in Tampa. It got him suspended.

So weird. I kept watching to try to understand what got him suspended.
Why would you call attention to an announcer when your team is in first place? A huge distraction and not necessary.
If the Orioles lose first place, get a wild card, or worse, I hope they look back at this (front office) decision. Totally unnecessary.
Rarely do I agree with anything Yankee related, but Michael Kay (Yankee announcer) said it best:
“If you’re going to be so thin-skinned to suspend Kevin Brown, then you have to suspend the entire Orioles (broadcast) truck,” Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay said during his radio show on Monday, noting that Brown’s comments had also been on a graphic on the screen."
“If John Angelos, the owner of the Orioles, didn’t like that, then he’s thin-skinned and he’s unreasonable and he should actually get a call from Rob Manfred, the commissioner of baseball because it’s unconscionable that you would actually suspend a really good broadcaster for no reason whatsoever.”
"“This makes the Orioles look so small and insignificant, and minor league.”
I’m guessing the announcers got out in force on this one. I found out from the Red Sox broadcast. Dave O’Brien ripped the Orioles organization.
