Twitter is more of a conduit for criticism than praise. My source? Two minutes of surfing the website. So when you're trending, it's usually not good. The first pitch of the 2014 MLB All Star Game is still yet to be thrown, and social media is already knocking play-by-play mainstay Joe Buck. Here's a very brief sampling, though it's kind of hard to keep up with 100+ tweets a minute:
The All-Star game is going to be painful to watch because Joe Buck is going to constantly blow Jeter aka Captain Overrated.— John steudler (@john_steudler) July 15, 2014
Joining pretty much every "10" in New York.
Remember when Joe Buck plagiarized his dad's "Tomorrow night" call rofl— Jake Roberts (@sinatrafan28) July 16, 2014
The only reason Joe Buck seems pretty decent is because we were subjected to hours of Chris Berman yesterday. #ASG— Brian (@ZonaFan29) July 15, 2014
More of a Chris Berman slam, but it works.

So. Is everybody ready for the Jeter lovefest? I think Joe Buck got his supply of dental dams ready. #ASG— Derek Cabanaw (@bowlernumberone) July 15, 2014
When he announced Jeter's name... Joe Buck came— Zach Attack (@zlehrbaum) July 15, 2014
We're guessing this trend will continue throughout the night.
