The first in our series of grading the local MLB TV announcers takes us to the AL East. The American League East has an interesting set of announcers, with many familiar names and voices included within. But which teams do you like the most, and which do you despise?

Give each broadcast crew a rating, and if you have strong opinions in either direction, let us know in the comments as we’ll use that feedback in the final rankings of the broadcast teams. For more on the series and what it’s all about, click here.
