John Sterling vs Skip Bayless
Fact File: New York Yankees play by play man
Why He's Here: Sterling is one of those rare announcers that has become a caricature of himself. His Bermanesque homerun calls can be painful even for the most ardent of Yankee fans. They wouldn't be so bad if Sterling didn't routinely botch even the simplest of commentary. His trademark "Yankees win, THHHEEEE YANKEEEEES WIIIINNN" call is the anthem of the seventh circle of hell for baseball fans outside New York.
Fact File: "Star" of ESPN's First Take and 1st & 10
Why He's Here: The former antagonizing columnist transformed into an antagonizing TV personality with his transition to first Cold Pizza and then First Take on ESPN2. Bayless traditionally squares off against a debate partner in segments that contain enough hot air to lift the Hindenburg. Often, Bayless will say outlandish things just for the sake of saying outlandish things. Thankfully, most people have stopped listening.

The brief amount of the draft I heard on the radio was pretty good. Shoutouts to Marc Kestecher, Will Perdue, Doug Gottlieb, and Ric Bucher for their work on that. Liked the interviews that were done with players who were just drafted, and thought they did a good job explaining what was going on.
hahaha so true with Stuart Scott throwing out worthless stats and facts...I also recall saying Timberwolves like "Timberwuffs" at least once. Next year: new host (Casey Connors, Jonathan Coachman), Bilas, Fraschila, and Ford?
I canoot believe it's taken me this long to find this blog. Absolutely spot on and brilliant in every way!!! Well done.
It was pretty bad but i am still recovering from the years with Stephen A. By setting the bar so low with him, you almost feel like they're doing a good job just because he isn't that.
HOWEVER, the coverage sucked and quite frankly they need to go back to the drawing board on who they have covering the draft
