Yahoo Sports released their list of 50 Worst Sports Announcers, and somehow Campbell was spared from the list. I’m considering contacting Jay Busbee to let him know that our Blue Jays TV commentator Jamie Campbell should be a write-in candidate, but I guess compared to some of the announcers on that list, Campbell isn’t totally inept.
Representing baseball’s worst were Chris Berman, Joe Morgan, and John Kruk. I don’t really have any issues with John Kruk, and Joe Morgan is obviously bad. But Chris Berman is especially annoying every year at the Homerun Derby. Hearing “back, back, back” every 5 seconds makes me want to go “back, back, back” in time and punch Berman’s father in the testicles, to prevent him from ever being born.
Also, just a quick reminder that the Live Blog will still be taking place on Tuesday at 9pm. Anyone is welcome to join, and there will be rough agenda that I’ll be working from. We’ll be talking about the starting rotation, possible batting orders, and who might possibly streak this year at Opening Day.
