I like the O's too! They used to be our St. Louis Browns after all.. so by default they are my AL team!

They have some hitters on that team but the starting pitching struggles. I like this kid Trey Mancini looks like he can hit!

I like Buhner but listening to his schtick during a game is a bit much and often distracting. Doesn't help that he is overexposed around here due to incessant commercials he does for a local truck dealership.

You saved me some keystrokes.

I listen to quite a few others. Obviously I'm biased, but also glad I don't have to listen to many white sox games with Harrelson - also not a big fan of ESPN's current crews either. Get some additional exposure on MLB network of other announcers as well. Like Smoltz but can't stand Darling. Thank God McCarver retired!

McCarver is still active as part of the Cardinals TV broadcast team along with Dan McLaughlin, Al Hrabosky, Ricky Horton and Jim Edmonds. I'll take McCarver over Edmonds any time.

I enjoy McCarver more as part of the Cardinals broadcast team more than I did as a National Broadcaster. As I mentioned before when they have former Cardinals players such as Brock, Gibson & Carlton in the booth with McCarver sharing stories it is very entertaining!

I have always really enjoyed listening to Jerry Howarth in Toronto. And I agree Tom Hamilton in Cleveland is excellent. When the Tigers play these two teams I always try to find these guys if I'm driving.

We were recently on the west coast driving and got to listen to Jon Miller doing the Giants - I think he might be the best.

Unfortunately, I can't stand the radio guys in Detroit. You hear the ball hit the mitt on the radio while the play-by-play guy is intently discussing how Miguel Cabrerra hits .375 with power on Sunday afternoons when the sky is overcast. But I grew up with Ernie Harwell, so I'm a tough critic.

Does anyone still tune around the radio dial when you're driving to see if you can get other games? I just think it's cool to find a Phillies or Cardinal game on a nice clear night in Michigan.
