Only one I actually hate is Steve Phillips and I don't mind the rest, including Kruk. I'd say I liked HR best though and Brantley/Hershiser have been pretty good too from what I recall.

I don't watch BBTN but I will say that Steve Phillips is really good to listen to on the radio when he's on Mike and Mike. Not sure if he's bad on TV but he's really interesting on the radio.

HR gets the nod from me. It's gonna be tough not seeing him on BBTN anymore, very insightful and knowledgable and humorous at times. Ravech is also one of my favorites, as well as Kurkjian and Gammons for pure knowledge. Brantley is the only one I really don't like. I like that he played the game and can give insight on some things but he just doesn't come off as a good speaker, he always seems to be stammering and stuttering and is never really in sync with the on screen displays.

Gammons and Kurkjian are two of the most knowledgable on there. Kruk is completely incompetent.

Gammons knows about the highly publicized media-hyped east coast teams (Red Sox, Yankees, and to a lesser extent, the Mets), but he sounds like a complete idiot when he talks about every other team.


I'll take the recently fired HR, with Ravech and Kurkjian following closely behind.


Gammons is the man. He is the only guy on that show that has any real knowledge of today's game or personal decisions (steve Phillips is useless, if he knew anything he wouldn't be at ESPN),

I think Tim blows everybody away. He understands the deeper side.

I like Gammons with Buster Onley being a close 2nd.

If you picked Kruk, please scroll up and to the left of your screen and click the majestically colored yellow lettering engraved "Football."
