Joe Angel, WBAL

We looked at the lovely totals and it’s clear, Joe Angel is the Best Sportscaster. If we could write the way Joe Angel talks, we wouldn’t be writing Best Ofs, we’d be too busy dusting our Nobel Prizes. How do you spell the way that man talks? Angel turns the simple sentence “And the Orioles are in the WIN column” into a moment of perfect beauty. The Bogotá, Colombia, native rolls consonants we didn’t know you could roll and makes reading the lineup an act of artistic expression. When he sends off home runs with his signature “Hasta la vista pelota!,” we want to go with them, ’cause it sounds like they’re headed somewhere nice.
