4. Dan Shulman
ESPN’s play-by-play man does not receive nearly enough respect.
Many complain about numerous aspects of their production, ranging from the ludicrous animated strike zone to the subpar color commentators.
Putting all of that aside, Dan Shulman — known more for his brilliant work on NCAA basketball — is the lone constant. To go even further, he deserves more than the one playoff game (wild card game) he is assigned on national television each year.
Those who listen to the later rounds on radio can truly appreciate his greatness, as the Toronto native paints the picture perfectly on a different stage.
If he had more of a MLB postseason TV sample size, Shulman would be higher on this list.
