Vin Scully did one of the old baseball games, can't remember which. It was a joy to play because of him, though. ;-D

What they should do is resurrect Harry Carey and get Ron santo for a baseball game. Ya they arent very good at calling a game, but youd be laughing too hard from Careys drunken antics and Ron Santos wild ramblings. :-D

That's the 989 game, right? I swore off 989 MANY years ago, but I might have to check it out if ol' Vinny is doing the PBP.

The worst i've ever heard are the white sox announcers. So biased and annoying. You can put it on the boaarrrrrrrrd.



i find nothing wrong with hometown announcers rooting for their team and i'm not saying this bc i'm a sox fan. i think it makes the game much more exciting

many announcers show much more excitement for their team than the opponent (which they should), harry kallis for the phils, krukow and kuiper, etc.

IMO, it's much better then sitting through a braves game, where sutton and carey remain unexcited, even as the braves hit a walk off homerun

you cannnnnnnnnn put it on the board! :-D

The Braves announcers suck, idk what you're talking about. I mean, the Yankees have Michael Kay, who is no good by any stretch, but at least he shows emotion. He'll be going crazy when a homerun is hit, and then you'll hear the Braves annoucners say something like this:

"That ball is hit hard by Andruw Jones. It's going back there. And it's gone. That's Andruw Jones' third homerun today folks."

compared to somebody like Kay:

"THAT BALL IS HIT HIGH AND DEEP!!! DAMON IS BACK, TO THE TRACK, TO THE WALL.....SEEEEEEEEE YAAAA!! OHHHHH WHAT A SHOT...BY JASON GIAMBI!!!!"

There's biased, and then there's the White Sox announcers. Because I go to school in Illinois, I have to watch Indians-Sox games on Chicago TV, and it's just ridiculous. Several times the Indians would hit homers and they wouldn't even say a thing! The ball would go out, and the next batter would come up and they'd say "...And it's 3-2 now."

i also don't understand their need for catch phrases. It's not just "you can put it on the board," though that's the worst. "He gone!" is just stupid. i can't understand how even Sox fans could listen to them.
