    Those Rays announcers are about as boring as a piece of toast. :lol:

    Don Orsillo & Jerry Remy do a fantastic job for NESN in my opinion. Kind of silly at times but never boring!

    I guess, now that I really think about it, the reason why I like Staats is that I remember I liked his voice many years ago when, as a local voice, he would sub for Uecker in August (I believe) while working on the Mr. Belvedere show.

    Honestly, I like Dwayne. It's the albatross that sits next to him I detest.

    I can listen to Kruk and Kuipe all day long. Always the correct level of enthusiasm, humor, and knowledge.

    I'm curious to know if anyone finds the DBacks announcers to be as annoying as I do. I was really hoping they would not renew Darron Sutton, but unfortunately it appears they did. He, along with Mark Grace tend to be the most juvenille team in the MLB. I simply cannot listen to these guys.

    Favorites are Uecker and Brenley. Worst are Jon Miller, Joe Morgan, McCarver and Scully. Scully has spent a career telling stories that are full of misinformation. He sounds knowledgeable until he starts talking about your home team or any team that you are very familiar with. He seldom has the facts correct and should have retired 50 years ago. Perhaps I should add that years ago I was a Dodger fan and didn't care for him then.

    I am watching the Washington @ Toronto matinee and paying attention to the Jays' announcers Jamie Campbell and former player Pat Tabler as the analyst. Originally I was going to mention those guys are quite monotone and therefore boring. But the more I listened, and should if I am watching the whole game, I noticed they REALLY 'talk baseball' which I can never get enough of. They also go into some detail of the visiting team's players. It never hurts my feelings either that Stephen Strasburg is pitching!

    I will put these guys down as a 'team' that I like (I will grade my announcing teams only as like/dislike).

    Watching the Nats-Rays game and actually have watched Washington enuff so far in '12 to form an opinion of their TV guys Bob Carpenter and F. P. Santangelo. Carp I can take but Santangelo talks way too much for my liking and comes across as a guy who believes he knows all. Carpenter deserves better but person has to play the cards he is dealt & it brings him down in my opinion... So, my 'like/dislike' grade is dislike.

    It has been great watching games with Sutton in the booth. Still can't tell if it is permanent or not. It is quite a coincidence that he will be doing the DBacks/Brewers game for Fox on Saturday. Prior to broadcasting for the DBacks, Sutton was the PBP guy for the Brewers.
