Dave Henderson might be the worst broadcaster ever.

August 26th, 2006 → 11:46 pm @ // 4 Comments

Sure, his run in the ’86 playoffs was as good as, say, Mark Bellhorn’s in 2004. But man, does he suck in the booth. He makes Ron Gant look like Howard Cosell.

    Perhaps the booth is not his natural milieu but he is no way as annoying as that yutz who broadcasts for the CWS or even the two in Tampa Bay.

    Maybe I am just remembering the smile, but I don’t find him THAT bad. Awkward, sort of stumbling. Ok, sure, not really insightful. Well, that does sound bad.

    But I agree with the previous post that the He Gone guy could not possibly be more irritating. Unless he was Jeff Brantley. For Brantley is nasty and condescending. At least Hendu isn’t that nasty.

    And he seems to have vision enough to notice that:
    Manny was safe at third.
    Big Sexy was out at first.

    I find many former Sox players-now-broadcasters fairly bitter and partisan like “He Gone” Hawk Harrelson and Hendu (who disparaged Boston’s 2006 defense, which, admittedly, hasn’t been great lately). I listened to Joe Castiglione yesterday and he had that sad, resigned, “2001” kind of tone in his voice.
