The 2023 MLB Postseason announcer rankings

8. Michael Kay & Alex Rodriguez (ESPN) – 1.54
Most popular grade: C (30.26% of votes)

Breakdown: The readers of this site do not like Alex Rodriguez. Michael Kay is a pro and good at what he does, but even he couldn’t bring Rodriguez up to an acceptable level. The guy just isn’t a passable game analyst, which we’ve seen many times over the years. Next season, the Kay Rod Cast won’t be a thing, with Rodriguez dedicating himself to Fox on a new, exclusive deal….

1.  Brian Anderson & Jeff Francoeur (TBS) – 3.12
Most popular grade: A (45.33% of votes)

Breakdown: This one was no surprise. Brian Anderson is a known quantity to our readers, always scoring highly in our NCAA Tournament announcer rankings and in our local MLB announcer rankings through his work with the Milwaukee Brewers. Jeff Francoeur’s continued growth as an analyst, both at the local and national level, is astounding. I’m not surprised he’s good, but I am surprised he’s gotten this good this quickly. With this pair (who will call the NLCS) in the booth, Warner Bros. Discovery seems set on the MLB side for a long time.
