I'm fully aware that I about to offer something that is considered blasphemy in baseball circles, but I can't stand listening to a game by Vin Scully. Since I didn't grow up in LA, my experience with Vin is when he was announcing play-off games for NBC. I recently was in LA and heard him again, just reminding me how much I can't stand his voice or style.
I realize that he is probably the most influential broadcaster in baseball history, as his style is mimicked by most team play by play men. To me this is just another reason I don't like Scully, as that Scully-style has been franchised across the country.
I'm sorry, but I like a real voice, not voice trained in inflection. Radio has picked up on this recently, with the radio broadcasting school voice, being heard on less stations, generally ones with older listeners or in smaller markets. Time for baseball to have the same evolution.
I've put on my hard hat, so let the slam's begin. I would be interested on comments on other broadcasters who annoy the SSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHH................... out of you.
