MLB announcer rankings: Kruk, Kuip and company dethroned

The website has released its latest in-depth rankings of local Major League Baseball broadcasting crews and — shocker of all shockers — the Giants’ team has bid “bye-bye baby” to the No. 1 spot.

That’s right. Duane Kuiper, Jon Miller, Mike Krukow, Dave Fleming, Jeremy Affeldt and Javier Lopez were ranked No. 2 among MLB crews by the website. It’s a stunner, if only because the San Francisco squad was going for a three-peat after holding down top honors in 2017 and 2018.

So who dethroned the former champs? The San Diego Padres’ crew of Don Orsillo (play by play), Mark Grant (analyst) and Mark Sweeney (analyst).
