MLB Broadcasters

Uecker has lost a lot of it, but he's still awesome to hear call a game. One of the only times i'll listen to the opposing team's broadcast is if Cincy is playing the Brewers.

I like the team of Marty Brenneman (not Thom) and The Cowboy Jeff Brantley. Radio announcers still have the tv boys beat.

Have to love Uecker.

Hawk Harrelson and Steve Stone

You're being sarcastic, right?

Hawk Harrelson is the worst broadcaster I've ever heard. Can't stand him. Steve Stone is a major improvement over Darrin Jackson though.

The Hawk Harrelson/Darrin Jackson combo was the epitome of bush league. They are the biggest homers to ever put on a headset. It's fine to pull for the home team, in fact, they should pull for the home team. But the White Sox crew does it with as little class and professionalism as possible.

I remember a game a few years back where the ChiSox lost to a walk off, after blowing a good size lead. Harrelson wouldn't even call the play. He didn't say "Home-run", didn't mention the players name, didn't say the score of the game, didn't mention who the WP and LP were. Just went dead silent for about 15 seconds and then awkwardly cut to commercial. They regularly will just not call plays that are bad for the white sox. So often, when something bad happens they just go silent. It's ridiculous.

They will continually say the Umps made a bad call after replay clearly shows the call was correct and vice versa.

And nothing is worse than "He gone!" I cringe everytime I have to hear it.

I love Hawk, because he is a fan of the Sox. He is passionate about the team and when something happens he doesn't like he sounds off. He makes for good entertainment and he has a good history of the game.

Dibble is awesome.

I can't stand watching Sox games. "YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOOOOOOOARDS! YEEES! YEEES!"

so annoying

damn Damn DAMN!!! Can't I get a friggin break? Come on, man! I loved Dibble!

Rob Dibble Fired After Stephen Strasburg Comments

Can't insult the golden boy. But if you ask me, we could afford to lose Strasburg a lot more than Dibble. A win every 5th game isn't going to make the Nats a contender. Dibble made Nationals games watchable, and their viewership will suffer without him.

Now we have to listen to Ray Knight, whose contribution 90% of the time is, "That's exactly right, Bob."

Well d*mn....I loved listening to Dibble and his homerism but I can understand where this is coming from especially considering that he just got in trouble for the sexist comments also (I hadn't heard about that). Hate to see him go. MASN was painful to watch/listen to until he came along.

Staats is excellent.

Uecker is very very good.

Hawk is....a homer and really needs to lay off the umps. Not every call against the Sox is wrong.

Scully is a living legend and a fun listen.

The Cubs team of Len and Bob have blended nicely, to the point where Len's somewhat high voice has become less grating to me. Bob really knows his stuff and is now comfortable enough as a broadcaster to be mildly entertaining even.

The cubs radio team of pat and Ron is almost unlistenable thanks to Ron Santo.

Cub homers love the guy. I think he is a doddering buffoon that needs to retire ASAP.

When Moreland or Dave Otto fill in for him, the braodcast is EXCELLENT because Pat Hughes is so damn good. Pat and ANYBODY would be damn good, Ron just sucks so hard it makes it a tough listen.

Vin Scully has no peers.

In the worst category: Tim McCarver.
