    Radio Announcers

    I see that the brewers are going after Cory Provus to team up with Bob Uecker for their radio broadcasts.

    Brewers narrow search for radio voice | brewers.com: News

    Who is your favorite baseball radio voice?

    I love Uecker, but there is nothing like listening to a big play with Santo...especially the bad ones Santo just has a lot of emotion when calling a game.

    Re: Radio Announcers

    No one beats Uecker, he makes the game more interesting wether Milwaukee is good or not.

    Re: Radio Announcers

    Cory Provus.....I dunno, just doesn't seem to have the right type of radio voice. He does OK when he takes over for Pat for an inning a game, but nothing spectacular.

    Re: Radio Announcers

    I have never been a fan of the one inning Provus thing, he seems a little to polished, which sounds weird, but it isn't like he is having a conversation with me, instead he is telling me about baseball. Pat talks with me about the game, and no one paints a picture like Vin Scully.

    Re: Radio Announcers

    I think Cory is coming along.... Let him go work with Uecker, then when Pat retires he can come back to Chicago.

    Re: Radio Announcers

    Pat Hughes is great but Vin Scully is tops. As much of a cubs fan that I am, Santo drives me crazy when the cubs are not playing well. Love him when they are winning.

    Re: Radio Announcers

    Charlie Steiner does a good job for the Dodgers when Vin is on tv. A lot of people don't know that Jon Miller (ESPN Sunday Night) is also the radio voice of the Giants, and one of the best in the game.

    As long as you keep Joe Morgan away from him.

    Re: Radio Announcers

    I liked the team of Ed Farmer and Steve Stone last year for the Sox. Farmer has a really dry sense of humor and it usually is right on. Stoney always teaches you something you never knew about the game. He's really going to give the TV broadcasts some credibility (no offense to DJ, I liked his contributions too).

    Got to agree with a lot of people on here, Uecker is great.

    Makes me wish for the day when Steve Stone can team back up with Len... No offense to BB... He does a good job.

    DJ is gone? Might make the Sox TV telecasts bearable to watch with Stoney there instead. MIGHT. Still have that other dope in there.
