    I remember liking their radio announcers last year listening on XM. I don't know if they have the same guys now or not.

    I dont know who they were.
    All I had was the Phillie TV broadcast.
    They weren't good.

    That's amazing that you would say that, and I'm sure most people feel the same way because he's got a voice known all throughout sports and he never seems to be out of work.

    But for me, there's a quality to Kalas' voice that makes me wince in pain.
    His voice is such an over-the-top, fleshy, noise-intrusion of LOUD-GUY-YELLIN' at me that I literally find it unbearable to listen to him. It's like some cartoon character of some big drunk bellowin' in your ear.

    They have Harry Calas and Gary Matthews Sr. doing the PBP for innings 1-3 and 7-9. Than for innings 4-6 they have Harry Calas' soon to be replacement in Steve McCarthy (some average guy and is no Harry Calas by any stretch) and some average analyst. And for what it's worth Harry Calas' voice is as much music to my ears as any baseball commentator can be.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Oops never mind, someone already answered my question. I like his voice, just used to hearing it with music from NFL films.
