Vin Scully will call Dodgers games next season

Dodgers fans are having one heck of a weekend.

First there was the nine-player trade that brought over Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Nick Punto from Boston. And now … well … this is probably the best news item of all.

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that television broadcaster Vin Scully will return to the booth in 2013 for his 64th season of play-by-play.

Scully, 84, has considered calling it a career after each of the past couple seasons, but Shaikin says he’s “healthy” and “energized by the Dodgers’ new ownership group,” which has changed the feel of the franchise in mere weeks. Scully began calling Dodgers games in 1950, before the move from Brooklyn.

    The Detroit guys are the best I’ve heard, and the Yanks people are excellent (they have a lady on there, I listened very close to see if she was a “token” but she seems to know her stuff). Our radio guys are great, though they have worked together for so long they get the giggles sometimes. Our TV guys are not great, Carpenter is professional but no more than average. FP Santangelo is better this year than he was last year, so there’s hope. The Astros guys are good, and I was impressed with the Cards announcers in spring training when I heard them, they seemed even-handed and smart.

    I usually agree with you, but the Yankees radio announcers, Suzyn Waldman and John Sterling are about the worst that I have heard.
