This profile on Scott Franzke really shows how lucky the Phillies have been with play by play announcers. No one is going to compare to Harry Kalas, but with Franzke on the radio and Tom McCarthy on the television, the team and fans have been blessed. There are certain segments who do not care for McCarthy and I’m not here to tell you whether you should or shouldn’t like him, but as for me, I have no qualms with him. He calls a good game. Franzke’s call of the playoffs just made those games that much more exciting.
