VIN SCULLY, THE BEST ANNOUNCER IN BASEBALL HISTORY





Vin Scully was recently named the best announcer in baseball history by author Curt Smith in his new book Voices of Summer. My good friend Andy Torres, contributor to a new baseball blog on the KPCC-FM web site entitled Extra Innings, has the story and some sharp commentary about Scully and the state of Dodger broadcasting. This promises to be a site that will routinely feature excellent writing and well-reasoned baseball analysis-- Andy's one of the smartest people I know, period, but particular wise when it comes to the major leagues-- so a bookmark for Extra Innings is highly recommended. Congratulations to Andy on the new forum, and to Vin for making even the most agonizing game listenable and memorable.

Andy Torres doesn't know squat about baseball! He's a Nationals fan! Need I say more?

Leave Andyboy alone, Stoogie. He can't help it if he's an ex-Canadian.

Stoogeking, anybody can root for a winner. A true baseball fan stays 9 innings and roots for her/his team no matter what.

Besides, I've always loved the underdog, which is why I like you so much.
