In the great American tradition of belaboring the purpose, the author presents here another installment within an ongoing thought on baseballs various tv and radio broadcasts a task, it should be said, that's been greatly along" alt="Air Jordan 7" cigar""="" title="Air Jordan 7">Air Jordan 7"Cigar"

with the efforts in our readership.

Against all odds, this informative article actually does add something to the conversation. In fact, it might be the most important addition, in that it comes down closest to answering a question entirely highly relevant to consumers of over-the-air baseball especially the sort who read FanGraphs.

On both PC* and Ps3 (and maybe another) versions of MLB.TV, its easy to select a sound feed to accompany the video of the selected game. The question which has often occured to the author and very prone to many readers, as well is, Which audio feed will probably best complement the video of this game? Or, alternatively: Which audio feed wont compel me to do acts of violence against my person?

*Provided the NexDef plug-in the efficacy being another conversation is installed.

Because few of us are likely to have anything resembling a functional knowledge of all 61 English-language broadcast teams, answering that question is a challenge. Through the broadcast-rankings crowdsourcing project, however, we've come nearer to something similar to an answer or, at least, have produced a frame of reference with which readers might then easier draw their own conclusions about the leagues various broadcasters.

And this is a modified but nonethele s entirely sortable form of that list, including just the highest-ranked broadcast for every major-league club:NumTeamMediumVotesCharismaAnalysisOverall1San FranciscoRadio6784.84.74.82Milwaukee*Radio1014.93.94.83LA NL (Home)TV3224.84.54.74New York NLTV2764.64.44.75TexasRadio764.44.54.66ClevelandRadio404.53.84.57TorontoRadio3234.34.24.48WashingtonRadio1554.44.34.49PhiladelphiaRadio944.54.04.410AtlantaRadio1314.44.14.311St. LouisRadio3554.63.34.312HoustonTV794.34.14.213Tampa BayRadio844.14.04.214Chicago NLRadio654.23.74.215BostonRadio654.03.64.116DetroitRadio564.03.74.117OaklandRadio433.93.94.018BaltimoreRadio273.93" alt="Air Jordan 7" bordeaux""="" title="Air Jordan 7">Air Jordan 7"Bordeaux"

And, finally, here are some notes:

The biggest gap between a teams radio and television broadcasters is 2.0, between St. Louis radio (4.3) and television (2.3)

The smallest gap is simply 0.035, between Seattle tv and radio (both 3.3).

The highest average score for a teams radio and television broadcast was San Franciscos Air Jordan 1 Rare Air combined overall score of four.8.

The cheapest average score was for that Chicago White Sox, at 2.4 (using the Ny Yankees close behind, at 2.5).

As was noted a week ago, radio teams averaged a general score about 0.5 points higher than television teams. While, on the one hand, that may suggest a bias in favor of the radio medium itself, its notable that the Pirates broadcasts the people in which move freely back and forth between radio and television received much the same scores (3.1 for radio, 3.0 for television), enough apt to be explained by error.
