Yankees' announcer. It's not so bad if you hear it only once, but it's annoying to hear over and over again on highlight reels: "SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEE YA"
He does it for opposing home runs too.

"Touch 'em all"... feeble phrase used by various announcers. :rolleyes:

Exactly. What annoyed me most is any popup was immediately "BELTED DEEP". It's like sitting in the upper deck at the Cell with a YMCA children's outing.

Len Kasper doesn't really have a homerun call, but I can't stand him whenever the Cubs hit one. His voice is just sooo annoying.

John Sterling is the worst by far. The stupid nicknames that he has to give to every player after a home run are so irritating.

Here's just a small list (from Wikipedia)

Bobby Abreu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Abreu): "El Comedulce!", and "Bobby Abreu as sweet as candy..."
Melky Cabrera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melky_Cabrera): "The Melk Man delivers!", and "Do it the Melky Way!" "He always knocks twice!"
Robinson Cano (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robinson_Cano): "Robbie Cano! Don't you know?", and "Cano can do!"
Johnny Damon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Damon): "Positively Damonic!"
Jason Giambi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Giambi): "The Giambino!"
Derek Jeter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_Jeter): "El Capitan!", "a Jeterian swing..." and "a Jeter jolt"
Tino Martinez (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tino_Martinez): "The Bam-Tino!"
Hideki Matsui (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hideki_Matsui): "A thrilla by Godzilla!"
Jorge Posada (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jorge_Posada): "Jorgie juiced one!" and "Jorgie jacks one!"
Alex Rodriguez (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Rodriguez): "The best, Jerry, the best!" , or "an A-Bomb, from A-Rod!" and "Alexander the Great conquers again!"
Gary Sheffield (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Sheffield): "The Master Sheff!"
Bernie Williams (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Williams): "Bernie goes boom!", and "Bern baby Bern!"

last night in the Twinkies Tigers game on ESPN Jon Miller called a Tori Hunter homer like:

"Monroe is back, he looks up, he lost it in the dome! he lost it!" --- as the ball lands ten rows up in the seats.

Really bad.

Hawk's call of any opposing player's home run:
(Long silence) "And we've got a four-to-three ballgame."

I think Ed's is pretty bad because 99% of the time, the ball is caught on the track. Perhaps Ed lacks depth perceptions but its always "this one hit a ton, Stewart goes back.............................caught at the wall" Whenever I listen on the radio and Ed starts to hang a star on this one, I know that its a long fly out and usually, it is. Please Ed, tell me more about Ruffled Feathers today....

It's even more pathetic when the ball is caught in front of the warning track. :redneck

The funniest non-hr call I ever heard was by Phil Rizzuto, calling what he believed was the first hr ever to clear yankee stadium.
As he's making the call, the camera is showing the rf in position to make the catch and in the backround , Bill White (Rizzuto's partner) is laughing.
Rizzuto had lost the flight of the ball and was watching a pigeon, he thought was the ball, fly out of yankee stadium.

The worst HR call in my experience was when the late Frank Messer was doing the Yankees for WABC radio he'd shout "A B C ya later". Cloying and annoying.

Speaking of John Sterling, some years back he was on board a Yankee flight that encountered severe turbulence and was in danger of crashing. I have always speculated how his final call would sound.

"The Yankees die. THHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Yank"

I have to agree about Farmer. He is the absolute worst announcer I have EVER heard. He thinks he knows everything about everything and thinks everyone likes him. I grudgingly say this, but I would rather listen to Stumpy Pumpkinhead do cub games on GN than put up with Farmers smugness.

I even e-mailed WSCR telling them I will never listen to a Sox broadcast again because of him. They told me they are "sorry" that I feel that way. "This ones hit a ton, at the track and hauled in" What a doofus. 30-43 with a 4.28 does'nt warrant a broadcasting job. YEECHH!!
