The study indicates Fan Graphs asked readers to rate the television broadcast teams (on a scale of 1-5 for charisma, analysis, and then overall) for all 30 major-league clubs — with the intention, ultimately, of determining which broadcasts might best reflect the sorts of inquiry and analysis performed here at the site.
The rankings are out of 31 broadcast teams, due to the two teams employed by the Dodgers.
31. Chicago White Sox
Broadcasters: Hawk Harrelson and Steve Stone
Ratings (Charisma/Analysis/Overall): 2.1, 2.2, 2.0
“The broadcast questions are a bit misleading because Steve Stone is excellent and Hawk Harrelson is not,” one reader suggested. “I am not quite as bothered by Hawk’s problems as others but he can be unbearable to listen to.”
