    Only guy worse than Brownie is the other PxPer who takes radio when Brown's on TV, and vice versa.

    Don't know if they really belong on this post (perhaps Royals fans can enlighten me), but I got really pissed at Ryan Lefebvre and Frank White (well, actually just Lefebvre) while listening to them last week and again tonight on the mlb.tv package.

    First a little background: I was listening to the games because Danny Duffy, who had his second start tonight, graduated from the same high school I did (and currently lived a couple blocks from) and is the first Major Leaguer to come out of said high school.

    Anyway, last week in Duffy's debut, Lefebvre mispronounced the name of the city in which he was born (which is about 50 minutes away), mispronounced the name our city and had him graduating from the wrong high school.

    Rockies homers on, appropriately, Root, at bad. Drew Goodman with George Frazier or Jeff Huson and the dreaded and talentless Alanna Rizzo from the stands.

    One nice thing about Cubs broadcasts - both WGN & Comcast - no "sideline" reporter.

    And if anyone (still) listens to the radio, you know how Mike Shannon cuts away to commercial when the Cardinals lose? Farmer makes that move a calling card.

    "Sox lose, 3-2, commercial next (saying it in total disgust)."

    mpcincal, we are talking about "The Beaver" in K.C. He will always butcher it, and White just sits there, wishing he wasn't there next to Ryan.

    WGN knows not to fuck up what Arne Harris has built with the Cubs telecast, and thankfully the White Sox.

    Hawk and anybody.

    I don't mind Steve Stone. In fact, I think he's really good. And I feel for him. He wet-nursed Harry Caray for years, and then he gets stuck with a braying jackass like Hawk.

    Hawk's the best.
  8. I never minded Wimpy, although Hawk is insufferable.

    I thought they had a falling out a few years back. Maybe they've reconciled.

    Dan McLaughlin and Al Hrabosky not only call Cardinals games with all of the muted enthusiasm of a championship chess match, but they have no chemistry at all.

    At least there's the Dirt Cheap Liquor commercials to spice things up!

    I was getting ready to say McCarthy and Wheeler on Phillies telecasts, but then you all thankfully reminded me of the White Sox.

    There are so many bad ones. It's a golden age for terrible announcers.

    Sadly, we get Dan O' doing a lot of Mo Valley basketball out here. Just horrific.
