Vin Scully is my favorite, and from what I've heard this year, the Phillies' TV announcers are just brutal to listen to.

I think Joe Buck does a great job. Don't really like McCarver though.

man Scully is great-but I like Morgan. With Miller that is, who is just a gem.

i'll tell you who gets on my nerves-is it Buck Martinez? The ESPN announcer?

Best I've ever heard is Scully. The worst Hawk Harrelson. On a side note, when Jery Coleman did the Padres games. He said some pretty funny stuff.

I like Jerry Remy. Of course I'm biased, but it just sounds like he really enjoys his job, and you don't know how many times I've heard him just start laughing, and not be able to stop for the entire inning. He makes each game different, and interesting to listen too.

And in the ninth inning of Wednesday's contest, Crede leaned into a pitch, but was not awarded first base because he made no effort to avoid it (yes, it's in the rulebook, but rarely enforced). He popped out on the next pitch, slammed his bat down, made a colorful comment and promptly got the boot. So in comes Dye, who has never played shortstop as a pro and has played nothing but outfield and DH as a major leaguer. Of course, by this point, White Sox announcer Ken "Hawk" Harrelson was spewing nothing but criticism of the umpires, saying they effectively "decided" this game in favor of the Athletics and offering little in the way of play-by-play.

Yea but he's OUR Hawk and we love him!!!! Heee Gone!!

I like Buck, Scully, and Tom Grieve.

As for Keith Jackson, I can't stand the guy. He was great in his heyday but now he's too old and senile to be allowed on air. I can't count how many times he said stuff this year that another commentator had to correct. That and he's probably about the biggest West Coast homer you'll ever hear. Rodney Peete over Barry Sanders for the Heisman anyone?

Totally agree. And it's not dead air for effect either, like a Scully or Harwell would give you, it's just booth awkwardness. From what I understand Hawk is pretty much a running punchline in the Chicago baseball scene.
