Chicago baseball fans have it great with their announcers. Benetti for the White Sox, Boog Schiambi now with the Cubs, and Len Kasper and Pat Hughes have stayed in town. Benetti is also a huge improvement on Hawk Harrelson, too much of a homer in my opinion.

As a Sox fan, Benetti is the best announcer I've ever heard, but holy cow (to borrow from Harry Caray) is Len Kasper great, too.
