The best announcers for a magical season

The best announcers for a magical season

Guest post written by my buddy Hans Hale

This baseball season has been the most memorable that I can remember in years. I haven't been able to catch a lot of ball games this season at the park, but I've been pleasantly surprised by the announcing team of Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper on the San Francisco Giants broadcasts.

So far I've caught almost every game because directv has fox and I have to say that Kuiper is an excellent play by play man and Krukow has to be the best color commentator in the country. He really teaches the game to the average fan and his knowledge is top rate. He picks up things that I'd never even thought about before I started listening to their broadcast.

This season the team actually hasn't stunk and has been in the pennant race throughout the entire year. They had some rough patches early on, but really came on during the summer to make it a race. I remember all the big close games they had this season. Every game seemed like it was a one run game and even the losses were memorable. I have to admit, they probably gave me a few gray hairs making the postseason on the final regular season game of the year. I can't wait to see how they do this year in the playoffs with their awesome shutdown pitching staff.
