I think I should start reading The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Roger Brown more, because our taste in sports broadcasters
line up almost perfectly. Look at what he wrote today.As the baseball season winds down, here's our list of the best and worst baseball analysts in 2006:Best
Joe Morgan (ESPN): The no-nonsense Morgan remains the gold standard for baseball game analysts - he's insightful, informative and, at times, controversial.
John Kruk (ESPN): The "Baseball Tonight" studio personality clearly does his homework - he has an impressive ability to dissect each team's strengths and weakness.
Tim McCarver (Fox): There's no denying McCarver's ability to combine baseball wisdom and wit - even if he's often guilty of talking too much.
Steve Phillips (ESPN): A former New York Mets general manager, Phillips is blunt and opinionated.
Lists are fun, aren't they? Here's my list of the best and worst judges of baseball analysts for 2006:
Me (FJM): I am awesome.
Roger Brown (Cleveland Plain Dealer): Thinks John Kruk does "homework." Thinks Tim McCarver is full of "wit." Has a sentient alien spaceworm living in his brain situated in the exact configuration that would cause someone to write unspeakable untruths about sports broadcasting (conjecture).
dak (FJM): Just kidding, dak!
