John Sterling, Yankee announcer


In today’s New York Post, Phil Mushnick tees off on John Sterling, the New York Yankees’ radio voice. Although I rarely listen to baseball on the radio these days, I agree 100 percent.

Sterling is, simply put, terrible. Tonight, while returning from the gym, I heard him celebrate one of Mark Texiera’s homers by saying, “That’s on the Mark, Texiera! A text message!” I couldn’t believe how absolutely terrible that was; I mean, badder than bad.

Now compare Sterling to the Mets across the way, who hire smart, on-point announcers for their broadcasts. Really, the man’s a joke. Nice guy, probably. But horrific.

Anyhow, that’s all I have to say about that.
