2010-12-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Shulman, Hershiser, Valentine on ESPN Sunday Night baseball .... infinitely more watchable than Miller/Morgan, but would still love to see Steve Stone get a(nother) chance. Opinions?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Hi Diana! I think my Steve Stone man-crush is pretty well-known, so of course I'd like to see him get away from sharing a booth with Hawk. Believe it or not, I didn't mind Miller and Morgan as much as most folks seemed to -- Joe is what he is, and anyone that inspires a web-site as entertaining as Fire Joe Morgan was can't be half bad. But, that said, it's a definite upgrade. (Ken Funck)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which baseball annoucers are your favorites? I enjoy the rapport between Hawk Harrelson and Steve Stone quite a bit and the Red Sox guys (Orsillo and Remy) are fun too.
(JG Ballard from Vermillion Sands)
Vin Scully is my favorite, hands down. Great bit from the Sons of Steve Garvey site yesterday (http://www.sonsofstevegarvey.com/2010/03/vin-scully-on-bill-veeck-and-colored.html) about Scully telling a story about racism, Bill Veeck, and the flight of major league spring training facilities to Arizona.

I'm no Michael Kay fan, but I really like Ken Singleton on the Yankees games, and enjoyed David Cone while he was around. Al Leiter is decent too. I don't mind Krukow and Kuiper for the Giants, even though they're "the enemy" to a Dodger fan. For national games, I'm really eager to hear more of Jon Sciambi on ESPN, because he's a friend of BP and because I like what I've heard. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Isn't Steve Stone the bee's knees? I love the guy. He and Hawk are a lot of fun. Are you a Sox fan now?
(Erich von Manstein from Sevastapol)
Stone's been the best color man in baseball for decades; the way he was treated by WGN after how he'd helped Harry Caray along to the very end remains a disgrace. That we were ever robbed of having him in the booth was just bad news. That said, Hawk Harrelson remains Hawk Harrelson, the best Hawk Harrelson in baseball for decades; no amount of color-commentating goodness can change that, let alone turn me into a Sox fan. ;) (Christina Kahrl)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-10-27 16:30:00World Series Game FiveMountainhawk (Salem, MA) notes, "You think it's chilly now, just wait until next year when we play November baseball!"

And here I didn't think we had enough reasons to dislike the WBC. At some point, the conceits of the Selig era are going to have to draw wider censure.

As often as McCarver predicts pitch sequences incorrectly, I'm left that much more in awe of Steve Stone when it comes to color commentary. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-10-10 13:30:00Friday LCSChip once defended me -- ironically, Steve Stone was chewing me out -- so I will not criticize him tonight. Buck Martinez is fair game. (Will Carroll)
2008-09-29 10:30:00Tigers/White Sox Play-In GameHawk Harrelson and Steve Stone. Matter and Anti-Matter? Is the Sox '09 announcers the baseball equivalent of the Large Hadron Collider? (Will Carroll)
