I haven't read everything in here, but if you want to listen to the absolute worst announcers in the history of any sport, turn on WGN right now.

The ChiSox announcers seem to be universally hated, even by Chisox fans.... Besides being WAY TOO homerish, they don't really seem all that informative about the game. I like announcers that tell me something I don't know. These guys seem like just two guys who don't know the game beyond the average fan level.

I'm a Red Sox fan, and I think their announcers are pretty much average play by play guys. Not great, but not from Chicago.

Vin Scully is pretty good, along with Joe Miller (that's the name of the ESPN Sunday night baseball one, right?) but Joe Morgan annoys me.

Blame it on bias or not, but Sterling, the Yankees announcer sounds really obnoxious. Like some Bronx teenager who is overexcited. "See ya!" :-b

The Braves broadcasts are what most people think of baseball... boring. I don't know if it's the team itself, NL baseball, or the announcers. And don't hate on me here, I do like the Braves.

And to bring up my point about Chicago again, why did I have to learn that someone so obnoxious exists! Hawk. Kill me :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P

John Miller has one of the best voices to be a announcer but sometimes get on my nerve. :-D

I dont even know why the white sox announcer still have a job. :-[

Joe Morgan is annoying :-t

If you ever get a chance to listen to a A's game. It's awesome. The announcer's dont think every A's player is the best like the Angels announcer. And they are funny. dont talk too much, and have relaxing voices. Keep up the work guys ;-D

I like when John Miller and Morgan call a game. Mainly because Morgan will say something, Miller will disagree, and then Morgan will get mad and argue. If anyone saw the game a few days ago where they were arguing about whether Soler stayed in too long you know what i'm talking about.
