I’m working on a project rating each of the MLB broadcasts and crews. This should be ready sometime soon.
Seattle — Dave Niehaus, Mike Blowers — Of course, Niehaus is a Seattle icon and does a great job. Blowers is solid. I like them, but generally don’t watch if alternate broadcasts are available. While they don’t connect with me personally, they’re OK… B-, B if you’re a M’s fan;
Chicago (AL) — “The Hawk” Harrelson, Steve Stone — The Hawk is his own self as everyone knows and the first name in homer broadcasts. However, Hawk also is extremely knowledgeable and the fact is his personality is fantastic. As for Steve Stone, he is the gold standard for color analysts. I truly missed him during his long hiatus following his legendary stint with Harry Caray… B, A if you’re a Sox fan;
