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!


Yeah, he comes across as very arrogant and bored with calling anything that isn't sox HR. Just because he has seen it all doesn't mean I or the 8 yo kid trying to watch and learn the game have.

Harry was likable but poor. But he was a lot better than Skip. Skip is the worst. Not only is he drunk like Harry but he can't even get the player's names right! Thank goodness that Chip has learned from their mistakes. He is the best of the three. And I liked him and Stoney together. This will show my age. But I liked Dizzy Dean. Garagiola was good too. Nuxhall and Brennamen worked well together. But the best ever was Joe Buck's dad Jack in St. Louis.

I got a good chuckle out of that one too. I had to rewind my Tivo just to make sure I heard him right.

I can't stand the Fox guys. Has anyone ever actually laughed at the stupid jokes Buck makes after every pitch? I think I also get annoyed when a guy gets a job just because of his father.

Another one that I thought was brutal was Dave Justice. Don't know if he still does ESPN games, but he was like watching a train wreck.

Calling Vince Scully boring is giving him too much credit. Why does he feel the need to spell out every little detail of the game? Its TV, nobody needs an in-depth analysis of a routine flyball to right.

He might be one of the all-time greats, but I can't wait till HE GONNNNE.

As a Yankee Fan, Michael Kay :-t He's a gimmicky hack who is way too far on the side of the Yankees in every game and it's ridiculous. Thank god he does about 1/4 the games this year because ESPN was stupid enough to give this guy a radio spot during primetime opposite Mike and the Mad Dog. He even parodied their theme music. His radio show is an absolute train wreck. My favorite Yankee booth was Scooter and Bobby Murcer but that's coming from someone who never heard Mel Allen do games... Holy Cow!

I actually like Jon Miller, but I only get Angels and Dodgers games and Sunday Night baseball...Vin Scully is alright, Steve Physioc is pretty bad, I think Rex Hudker is the WORST baseball announcer by far. May be a good guy, but please stop announcing.
