My Favorites:

Ken Singleton (YES) - Very knowledgeable; great voice. Very hard to find someone of his quality.
Vin Scully (FSN) - I would listen to the Dodger games on Extra Innings, and believe me, I wish he could do every game in America. One of my all-time favorites.
Jim Kaat (YES) - Before he retired, I have never seen anyone else has as much depth of knowledge on the game as him.

My Least Favorites:

Rex Hudler (FSN) - He played baseball for over ten years and knows squat about the game. One of the dumbest color analysts I have ever seen.
Ken Harrelson and Darrin Jackson (Comcast) - Homers and beyond. They pretty much ruin any game I want to watch. Just simply awful.
Chris Berman (ESPN) - I just simply hate his guts. He knows nothing about nothing and yet gets to go to some of the most important events on the sports calender. Just put the dog out back and do the rest.

Michael Kay - He's a complete idiot.

1. Joe Moron...err Morgan
2. Susan "I talked to Player X and he feels awful about..." Waldman
3. Ken "The Chalkboard" Harrelson
4. Tim "statement of the obvious" McCarver
5. Keith "Mr. Boring" Hernandez
6. Fran "Mr. Even More Boring" Healy
7. Don't know the name, but he does color for the Angel (Downing I think)...just horrible...like a young Harrelson.
8. Jerry "Butcher the English Language" Remy
9. Al "The mouth that never stops" Leiter. Having to here Al Leiter prophess the benefits of pitch counts and throwing strikes is most amusing though.
10. Joe "Add no value" Buck.

Heh..I guess I'm the only one around here that can tolerate Harrelson.
I haven't heard Stone and Farmer on the radio yet, but I'm looking forward to listening to them.

You can say many things about Keith Hernandez, mainly mocking his mustache, but boring? He said women don't belong in the dugout while ON THE AIR.

Games announced on YES are torture.

David Justice when he's on the YES network...

I agree with the white sox announcers...the goodguys thing gets really old and something about their graphics really annoys me too.

Ummm...mixed on Michael Kay, I don't think he's that great but sometimes he comes to awful conclusions and you know that Singleton/Kaat/O'Neill/whoever want to say something but you just get an awkward silence for a minute. He seems kinda like a suck-up to the Yanks front office.

I like Remy. I think he does a good job talking about the game from a players perspective, but I laugh my ass off everytime he says huge or humid. "that was a 'uge shot."

I think the worst TV combo is George Grand/Chris Welsh in Cincinnati.

We used to watch the whitesox games on extra innings to hear that guy say 'he gone'. That guy is great. He really loves saying 'he gone'.

One of the Cub's guys is just terrible. Ron Santo I think it is? It is just painful listening to him.
