I personally like the Rays announcers, everyone seems aware of them now that they talked trash about Schilling. ;-7 :-b

Jon Miller is THE BEST. He can make the worst game interesting. IMO Vin Scully is the worst. His monotone delivery is boring at best.

Love jon miller. I enjoyed him even before he came to the giants. McCarver, Morgan, and Buck are for sure my most hated. Wild card: Rex Hudler. I live in Central California so I have to listen to him every night if I want to watch baseball, but it's fun to hear what this guy is going to say next. Remember, he was caught with weed at an airport, so I don't think it's a stretch to say he's high about 50% of the time.

Scully's the best.

Michael Kay, Morgan and McCarver are the worst.

Ever seen him on the Just For Men commercials? Reeeeejected! :-b

Pirate guys...I really do not like Lanny Frattare. He just sits there and says nothing for several seconds half the time. When he does start talking about the game, there's no excitement in his voice. It's just like he's accepted that crappiness of the team and carried it over to the booth. Greg Brown (their other main announcer guy) is really good. I wish he would just do all the games. At least he gets a little excited when something good happens or if we win a game.

Color guys - Bob Walk is sort of a dullard also, but I don't mind him. He's a telestrator wizard! :-D Blass is OK, but he and Frattare together is like sitting and watching paint dry at a retirement home. John Wehner is still trying to learn the job. He's not real enthusiastic either, but I can stand him.

Waldman is the worst. She actually knows her stuff, but is a disaster to listen to. Carrey & Scully are the best.

Scully is probably my favorite simply because of the history he has with the team. Denny Matthews here in KC reminds me alot of Scully. A broadcaster who is a staple of the team but can be pretty dry at times. Ryan Lefebvre is going on me slightly, but I do miss Fred White.

Tim McCarver and Joe Buck. They almost ruined the Red Sox postseason for me last year. Each game, it was painful to listen to those two. I still don't understand why they can't have one FOX announcer, and one local announcer. I listen to RemDogg ALL YEAR, and then I can't listen to him during the playoffs? Doesn't make much sense.


you know what got to me?
alcs game 4, before the sox rallied...
9th inning, they had this graphic on the screen about some medical website (they did that a couple of times during the alcs to show what was wrong with the injured pitchers), and they showed a broken heart for the sox fans

BOY WERE THEY WRONG

UP YOURS BUCK

Hawk & DJ are awful announcers. In between all the dead air, Hawk leaves the impression that he has seen it all and gives you little reason to take interest in the game.

Toss in a ho-hum story or two about when Hawk played and you have yourself baseball's worst broadcast.

Put in on the board, YES!
