With Football in full swing, most of FOX's goto announcers will be on pigskin duty this weekend. Buck, Stockton, Albert and Lewin are all working NFL games and Thom Brennaman is calling the Iowa State-Iowa on the Big Ten Network. That leaves the network with very few options for Baseball this weekend and they have in turn created the most random collection of announcers I've ever seen, highlighted by a BDSSP reunion for the Tigers-White Sox game.
Yes, Chris Rose is on Baseball for the second Saturday in a row and will be teamed up with none other than Rob Dibble for the AL Central game. We're also getting the Phillies' Tom McCarthy and the Mets' Howie Rose as fill-ins, so it'll be an interesting weekend to say the least. Here's your schedule....
