I have to agree. Chip Caray is the most annoying commentator of any sport that I've ever heard. He irritates me far more than the Harrelson "put it on the board" commentary, because he is way too cheerleaderish and makes my ears bleed. Steve Stone is an exceptional analyst, but he just can't overcome having to work with such a bufoon. Chip Caray makes me hate the Cubs and want them to lose every game
Rob Faulds (Blue Jays)'s "what do you think about that?" HR call is also very annoying, but people that don't live in Canada have probably never heard him.
