My wife and I just watched it on Fox Sports Midwest which is what she always watches hers games on because she's a Cardinals fan. I'm a Cubs fan so I wanted to watch it on WGN and I can't stand the Cardinals announcers. They may be some of the most biased I've heard.

The one that drives me crazy more than any other broadcast team is the White Sox. Whenever I watch a game involving them I automatically pick the other team's broadcast.

I gotta love "The Hawk" (Former Red Sox) ..... I see he has become quite controversial, for years he was loved by fans, not so much now.

You shoulda heard them back in the Phil Rizutto / Bill White days. What a couple of homers!

The old Mets broadcast team of Ralph Kiner, Bob Murphy, and Lindsay Nelson were biased, as well. But, not like those two huckleberries across town.

I suppose everyone like their home team announcers though since they are the ones we always hear.

I know for sure that no broadcast crew beats Wrigley Field's. Those cameras are always in the crowd showing the fans having a good time and always picking out the babes.;)

You'd be surprised what else they pick out with those long lenses.

I once saw a shtooper reel back in the 90's of people having sex in the stands. Tons of them. The best one was when they put the couple up on the diamondvision afterwards, when they were just sitting there innocently after it was over. After a moment, you could see the light bulb go off over their heads when they realized that they had been watched the whole time.

I suppose a bunch of this stuff is probably available on the Innerwebs nowadays.

I like to change the audio feeds with the MLB.TV app on Roku to hear the radio broadcast guys from each team. I much prefer Mike Shannon and John Rooney on KMOX to Dan McLachlan/Al Hrabosky on FXMW. "Get up baby, get up!"
