The way we watch baseball games has definitely changed over the past 10 to 15 years. We have access to so much more information than in the past; the days of relying on the "team in the booth" to explain stats and so on are over. We simply hop on the Internet and check to see what our favorite team or player has done in real time.
I think today's viewer wants to be entertained as well as informed, because as we all know, there is a lot of downtime in baseball, and we need to feel comfortable "talking" with the announcers as the game goes on.
This installment of Bleacher Report will focus on who I think are MLB's best television announcers bottom to top. If you throw radio in this, it's a different ball game altogether.
