DateQuestionAnswer
2011-11-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who was your favorite baseball player growing up?
(Steve from Ireland)
Bernie Williams. Wish I could say my favorite player was someone more obscure, like, I don't know, Duane Kuiper, but unlike Joe Posnanski, I grew up not far from Yankee Stadium in the mid- to late-90s, so marginally talented players were in pretty short supply. The first autograph I ever got was by Clay Bellinger, so I suppose I could have formed an unhealthy attraction to him. (Joe Torre did.) Bernie was a great hitter, graceful in the field (at least until his later years, or until he tried to throw the ball) and on the bases (I miss seeing him go first-to-third), and to the extent that you can determine these things from afar, seemed to have a softer side than the typical ballplayer who spends his offseason huntin' and fishin', which also appealed to me. Good guitar player, too. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite broadcasters to listen to/watch on TV? Let's say top three.
(Staufferinthetrunk from San Jose, CA)
1. Jon Miller
2. Mike Krukow
3. Duane Kuiper

and that's not to slight Dave Flemming, the fourth member of the Giants crew. I'm a Giants fan, so that's an easily discounted opinion, but the Giants have had such great broadcasters for the past two decades (Hank Greenwald before them) that I can hardly listen to other broadcasts.

Of course, I do listen to other broadcasts, five or six some days, and my favorites outside of those guys are probably Ron Darling (Mets) as a color guy and Len Casper (Cubs) as a play-by-play guy. Among announcers without jobs, I really liked Josh Lewin before the Rangers fired him, and I thought Dennis Eckersley did an tremendous job filling in for Jerry Remy earlier this year. Dennis Eckersley should have a full-time job.

The Rangers have the best reporter-in-the-stands guy. The Red Sox have the on-field microphone most likely to pick up profanity. Minnesota has the best center-field camera. The Giants don't use a pitch-tracker, ever, which is obnoxious, but they have a particularly good Coors Light Freeze Cam. The Angels' announcers are the best in a blow-out, because they get silly. The Rays have the best announcing crew if you want to pretend that Mark McGrath is describing a baseball game to you. The Phillies have the most fans who wave at the camera from behind home plate. The Marlins have the lowest production values -- I wish I'd recorded the time that they interviewed John Dewan in the middle of an inning to talk about the Marlins' defense, but it was a phone interview so he had no idea what was going on in the game. It was about unfollowable as a pre-taped call-in talk show.
