Vote: The Mt. Rushmore of Awful Sports Announcers

ESPN replaced longtime Sunday Night baseball announcer Joe Morgan before this season, creating a large hole in the lives of those listeners who enjoy seeing their blood pressure rise when an old school baseball guy rails against the utilization of sabermetrics. Morgan, whose backwards attitude towards the Moneyball era inspired the creation of the popular and relatively short-lived baseball blog Fire Joe Morgan, was among the four faces on Awful Announcing’s Mount Rushmore of, well, awful announcers. With his removal from ESPN, however, AA has decided to remove him from its monument, too, and will replace him according to readers’ votes. Yes, AA is going to use a 32-person tournament of head-to-head match-ups featuring the likes dislikes of Woody Paige, Skip Bayless, Rick Reilly and Hawk Harrelson. Go here to vote.

The winner will join Pam Ward, Dick Vitale and Tim McCarver.
