    Broadcaster

    Who was the best Red Sox broadcaster you have heard radio ortv?  Ned Martin for me though Curt Gowdy was great also.

    My top 5 would be:

    1) Ned Martin

    2) Joe Castig

    3) Don Orsillo

    4) Sean McDonough (no idea why.....but I really liked him.  Although I often wondered how his head got so mishapen...)

    5) Dave O'Brian

    I love hearing replays of Curt Gowdy but I was WAY too young to really remember him.

    “I told him I’m inclined not to like him just because of the home run he hit,’’ McDonough joked. “But I’ve been told he’s a good guy and I guess I’ll look past it.’’

    Sean McDonough on receiving a phone call from Aaron Boone. Boone was calling to introduce himself as they were about to begin work together with ESPN.

    No Curt Gowdy??  It had to have been before your time?

    Castiglione?  Someone hits a pop-up to shortstop and he makes it sound like it's a drive high off the wall.  I think the paint on his picture is too thick.

    I only remember Gowdy from national broadcasts.

    Castiglione is OK overall, but his voice can become a bit much. I couldn't take nine straight innings from him, but he and O'Brien make a good team IMO. O'Brien has a great radio voice. I could even consider moving him up a spot.

    Good list and Sean is rarley talked about except those in the business and most have good things to say.

    I think Harrelson has to be mentioned and I was a huge fan of Monty, both as a player and announcer.

    Orsillo is nowhere near as nasty as McDonough. Orsillo tends to mellow Remy while McDonough brought out his mean side.

    McDonough was very good. He's eighth simply because I didn't listen to him as often as the others. That Castigliano is sixth isn't a knock on him as much as how good the others are. He easily could move up.

    My list was play-by-play guys.

    I liked Harrelson when he was working with Dick Stockton. He didn't become annoying until he went to Chicago. He was more of a color guy in Boston. I didn't get the chance to listen to a lot of Montgomery because of when we moved, but I do recall liking him when I was in Boston over the years and he was still broadcasting.

    I thought Johnny Pesky was good when he was working with Ken Coleman in the early '70s, but I also was young and didn't have a reference point to compare.

    I agree with your top three.

    5. Dave O'Brien

    6. Joe Castiglione

     

    I met castiglione a few years back when he was at camden yards for a book signing.  The only thing I was interested in was seeing his WS ring!  Didn't buy a book or ask him anything but to look at his ring.  I asked if I could have it.  He laughed!  It was worth a try Wink

    The hawk was good at one time?  I can't stand listening to him, the whole 'good guys'/'bad guys' thing is childish.

    Of course, I was a kid when I was listening to Stockton and Harrelson, so maybe now I'd look at Harrelson in a different  light. But he was just starting out as an announcer and Dick Stockton was the play-by-play guy and running the show, so Harrelson probably didn't develop his annoying schtick until later.

    Maybe if I went back and listened to some old broadcasts, I'd cringe, but I don't remember Harrelson being particulary good or bad back then. You knew Stockton was on his way. He's a very underrated national guy today.

    I liked the hawk as a ball player, so did my dad.  I'm disappointing he turned out to be so annoying as an announcer.  He sure was a flashy dresser, remember his fur coats LOL!
