As a Yankees fan, I would be on suicide watch if I had to listen to Sterling year round.

Forget Schiavone, why not good ole' JR? Imagine how good he would be when a fight breaks out, especially since they play Stone Cold's music during?

I'm still holding out hope they manage to get Gary Throne in.

Gary Thorne is all about bad-mispronunciations & fake hype. Please stay with the Orioles & Little League.
There's gotta be some good minor league announcers just chomping at the bit for this.

He is, and the game to an extent has passed him by, but who else is really out there?

Can La Greca be a Play by play guy? I only know him to be a radio talkie and Kay's sidekick.

He is a PBP guy. He does fill-in Rangers' radio broadcast, and I wouldn't mind him one bit.

"Marion Gaborik scored his 65th, 66th, 67th, and 68th goals of the season tonight.

However, The Rangers were beaten by the Maple Leafs 6-4. Rather than bore you with those highlights, let's enjoy yet another encore presentation of our great MSG documentary, "1994: The Year We Can't Stop Thinking About" " - Warren

I stand corrected then. Havent heard him (as listening to the rangers on the radio would make me drive into a ditch), but people say hes pretty decent, so...

My guess is that it'll probably be a radio PBP guy from another team, just to throw out a random name....Nick Nickson who does radio PBP for the Kings.

I wouldn't mind them letting Dano have a crack at it with Chico. I don't know that you would have a traditional color/play-by-play set up with those two. But I bet it would make for some interesting conversation.

Conversation, yes. You need someone to keep the telecast moving, though. I've never seen it work in any sport without a real deal commentator. There's an art to it, and, knowledgeable and likable as Chico and Dano are, they lack certain skills you need. Not saying the pure play by play guys are worth anything -- Joe Buck blows no matter what sport he does, and one of the reasons Doc was great was that he loved the sport, but a good booth has at least 1 trained professional rather than just a guy who loves the game.

Chico and Dano are both color guys, don't think they could keep up with/build suspense with their commentary. Daneyko is a great one I have to say. Hope he gets a chance to do color for NJ eventually.

I hope Thorne comes back. He has a great voice, and is pretty exciting to hear. His insight and detail in his game calling isn't on the level of Doc's but I'd still like him.

I suspect Chico won't be the color guy much longer since Doc left (not rooting for him to leave, but they were the dynamic duo in my mind)

Thorne - Dano combination? mmm...maybe...

I don't know what I'm going to do without Doc calling the games. He's called just about every game I can remember watching on TV, minus Gary Thorne on ESPN, but his voice is the voice of the Devils for me and anybody else is just not going to sound right to me. I'm honestly quite distraught about this.

I'm willing to bet it's someone no one's thinking of, but will make perfect sense when it's announced. I believe there's even a term for it, it's called DeBoering.
