Among The Best In The Business

GQ Magazine ranked the Top 5 Best and Worst Broadcast Teams in Baseball in their current issue, and our very own Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy finished number four in their best ranking.

If you were watching the Sox game last night, DO and The RemDawg mentioned it during the third inning, and it led to another memorable exchange. From my friend Ian at Sox & Dawgs, here's the video of another classic Don and Jerry moment.

Yep, even on rotten nights, Orsillo and Remy make the Red Sox games worth watching.

I do like this list, BTW. The Giants team was ranked third (I like the team of Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow) and the terrific Mets trio was second. Vin Scully was ranked number one, all by his lonesome. Big shock there, huh?

The worst team? No shock that Ken Harrelson, his White Sox pom poms and Steve Stone were bottom. They are simply above and beyond unwatchable.

So, in honor of Don and Jerry, I dedicate this clip to them:

Ah yes, Remy and Orsillio are fantastic, but how do they and all of the broadcast crews look in blue blazers?

RemDog-on his own little planet, unique in many ways.

It's RemDawg's World, Eddie, we just live in it.

Yes and as they pointed out - first in the American League. Yes I remember watching that 19 inning game vs White Sox just before all-star break that Red Sox lost - that gave me more than my fill of the Hawk
