Bad Announcers

Postby acsguitar » Thu Jun 29, 2006 1:59 pm

So I listen to a ton of baseball on the radio with XM and MLB.COM

I've noticed some announcers I just cannot stand.

Today I'm listening to the Chicago White Sox vs. Pirates.

The whitesox Radio announcers seem like real jerks. They are trash talking Dimaggio about not signing autographs and also talking about how fans are annoying.

The Red Sox announcers on the radio are pretty awful as well. It seems like two old men talking about fly fishing or something. Half the time it seems like they are rambling on about nothing.

The Yankees announcers annoy me too. Susan has the worst voice ever and I can't stand it.

Just wondering who you guys like a dislike.

I like the O's guys

;-D

I love Castiglione and Trupiano (Red Sox announcers)! Trup is hilarious in my opinion...Anywhos on Fox a couple saturdays ago, the Sox were playing the Braves and the announcers were AWFUL! I have no idea who it was but they were soooo bad.

I hate the yankees ones as well though so I guess I'm not biased

I hate Joe Buck.

He always seems to go way over the top in every broadcast the he is a part of. And now he seems to act as if he has to "carry" football games....as if it was a slow sport like baseball.

I don't need to hear anyone singing old songs from the 1960s and 1970s or making jokes about people's hair and nationalities when I watch any sport.

Shut up sometimes....or better yet shut up all of the time.

I don't hear many besides the Cards. McLaughlin and Hrabosky on Fox Midwest are awful and I don't like Joe Buck much either. Wayne Hagin is horrible, although I like his partner, Rick Horton. Shannon and Rooney are good but not great.

The Braves TV announcers sound like they could keel over at any moment due to either old age or boredom - I wonder if they keep a defibrillator on hand in the booth.

The White Sox TV announcers sound like two middle-aged fans pulled from the crowd.

The Brave guys sound bored all the time

Rex Hudler on the Angel's broadcast thinks every Angel is great

The best are Vin Scullly and Steve Stone and of course, the late great Harry Carey

I suspect Bob Eucker is hilarious but I don't get Brewer games
