    So I guess were now as close as can be to the real thing.

    English play-by-play

    Dave Van Horne
    Tom Cheek
    Elliott Price
    Sam Cosentino
    Joe Cannon
    Rob Faulds
    Jim Hughson
    Ron Reusch
    Hal Kelly
    Jim Price

    Color:

    Russ Jackson
    Duke Snyder
    Pee-Wee Reese
    Don Drysdale
    Ken Singleton
    Gary Carter
    Mike Stenhouse
    Terry Haig
    Mitch Melnick
    Couple of AAA guys
    Warren Cromartie
    Darrin Fletcher
    Rance Mulliniks (???)
    Jim Fanning
    Tommy Hutton
    Bobby Winkles
    Jim Hearne
    Jerry Trupiano
    Richard Griffin
    Claude Raymond
    Russ Taylor



    FRENCH:

    Play-by-play:

    Jean-Paul Sarault
    Guy Ferron
    Jacques Doucet
    Raymond Lebrun
    Camille Dubé
    Denis Casavant
    Michel Villeneuve
    René Pothier
    Jean St-Onge
    Ed Doucette

    Color:

    Jean-Pierre Roy
    Claude Raymond
    Rodger Brulotte
    Marc Griffin
    Pierre Arsenault
    Alain Chantelois



    And just for the fun of it, let's split those guys (the one's I've listened to) into three groups. I've done it just for the french side, I only started listening seriously to Expos braodcasts in english in 2002 when Jacques Doucet was seriously going downhill:

    The good:

    Denis Casavant
    Raymond Lebrun
    Claude Raymond
    Jacques Doucet (he was good for a long time, but at the end...)

    The average:

    Rodger Brulotte
    Camille Dubé
    René Pothier
    Marc Griffin (on radio)

    The Ugly:

    Michel Villeneuve and Marc Griffin as a duo. Just Terrible.
    Alain Chantelois

    From now until the end of September, I'll be chronicling in real time on Twitter the 1946 season of the International league's Montréal Royals, when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in professional baseball. Check it out: https://twitter.com/Royals_46season

      Gus,

      You missed Russ Taylor - the former head of sports at CFCF 12 was an amazing sidekick to DVH and was partially responsible for Jarry Park being selected ...

      The good:
      Dave Van Horne
      Russ Taylor
      Duke Snyder
      Ken Singleton
      Trupiano, Jerry

      The Bad:
      Gary Carter

      Beyond pathetic:
      Joe Cannon (might be the worse I've heard)

        My bad, the list in the previous post has been edited.

        Joe Cannon was probably out of his element doing baseball, but I always tought he was a good morning man. Use to wake up to him on CIQC before he decided to give a hand to his friend Claude Brochu and become a sports broadcaster, and I enjoyed his work there. So let's give him just a little credit.

              Jacques Doucet is now doing a fantastic job broadcasting the Quebec Capitales games for the Can-Am League.

                Sorry for the late response just joined...

                "Gus" it was actually Russ Taylor an old TV guy who seemed to be thrown into baseball.

                I can remember his calls " Foli hits one to deep left .. it's back...it's back and the shortstop takes it on the edge of the outfield grass".
                "The designated hitter rule is like letting someone else take Wilt Chamberlain's free throws." - Rick Wise (1974)
