I love Sam too. But he has those days when he just miscalls the action or mis-IDs players (even the Ranger guys!) left and right. His performance has definitely slipped. And if the slide continues, then this will eventually become an issue that MSG Network can't ignore.
Doc mixed up players the entire game when we played the Devs on NBC. Yet apparently he's the best in the business.

Sam still has a lot of velocity left to lose on his fastball before he has to hang 'em up.
