Don't Get Me Started!!!!!

Sox fans..............Want to get annoyed and angry FAST? Read this piece from Chicago on Curt Smith's new book on baseball broadcasting, "Voices of Summer, " ranking baseball's 100 best announcers.

Lowlights:
- No Sox announcers in the Top 10. None.
- Ranking Tim McCarver ahead of Bob Costas?
- Ranking Dick Engberg ahead of Sean McDonough? (Aargh!!!)
- Ned Martin doesn't make the Top 20?
-
Joe Castiglione No. 74, behind...........Dave Campbell? (Triple Aargh!!!!!)

Gimme a break.
Who the hell is
Curt Smith anyway?
