Most Annoying Announcers Ever

Postby acsguitar » Wed Mar 19, 2008 5:33 pm

I've been listening/watching some Rockies V White Sox spring training lately.

My god the White Sox announcers are awful: Between "He Gone" and "Goodguys/badguys" and their stuck up Whitesox are the bets attitude I think I'm going to barf.

Mark Grace, and it is not even close

I simply cannot listen to a Diamondbacks game on television anymore.

Mute the TV, turn on XM play by play

You mean Ken Harrelson and Darrin Jackson? Gawd. LAWL.
Those guys are horrible ... "Get back, come on naw ... YES!!!!"
The other team hits a homer and there 10 seconds of dead air.
The Jon has trained The Daughter to say "He gon!" to The Wife. The Wife hates The Jon during baseball season.
The Good Guys win! YES!

I guess he would considered the "color" guy, but he annouces Dbacks games on the local station here.

The Hawk is the worst. Ever. McCarver is pretty annoying with his negativity about everything. Morgan goes off on tangents but his voice is soothing so he is ok. Miller is a fool too but I am able to tune him out.

I like Grace a lot actually but the best is Steve Stone. He knows more about baseball than 2-3 people combined.

He's not an announcer, but I despise Tom Caron on the Red Sox pre-game show. Despise.

I don't mind Remy or Orsillo. But listening to Caron makes me want to yak. :-P

Hahah I wasn't thinking about the cable guys too.

McCarver of course wins the worst there. And Joe Buck he's an arrogant jerkface.

McCarver is awful. Buck is a bit of a jerk, but he's got a good voice. It's hard to even imagine playoff baseball without Buck announcing the game. I'm split on Morgan. Like Buck, I don't mind listening to his voice. But some of the things that come out of his mouth are just stupid.

I really hate it when Chris Berman gets the occasional nod for a baseball game (and he usually gets it in late-September for major games or early playoff games that ESPN televises.)
