Worst play-by-play announcer?

Alright, since Tim "Hawk-eye...brows" McCarver seems to be running away with the...er, win...in the Worst Color Commentator poll, let's try for the play-by-play guys. Your choices for Most Likely to Confuse the Audience on the Simplest of Plays are:

 

Joe "Call a Game-Tying Home Run Like it's a Foul Tip" Buck - He's following in his father's footsteps...except that his father was actually, you know, good at play-by-play. So really, he's not following in his footsteps at all.

Chip "I Look Like a Freaking Mortician" Caray - He's not following in his father's footsteps...he's following in his grandfather's footsteps, specifically his drunk-while-on-air footsteps. 

Ken "Hawk" Harrelson - Everyone except White Sox fans can't wait 'til "He gawn!", and you can put that on the booooooooooooooard....yes. Besides, everyone else is a Bad Guy. 

Dick Stockton - In his older years, it seems his idea of announcing is, "Well, if I'm confused, why shouldn't everyone else be?" Sometimes you wonder if he realizes which sport he's announcing. 

 

Whether it's because of the faulted thinking of, "Gee, his father/grandfather was good at it, so he *must* be good, too!", or "Gee, he was good the first 30 years he did it, so why wouldn't he be good for another 30?", or even "Oh, I know he's bad, but that accent is so charming!", these guys announce play after play after play, inducing cringe after cringe after cringe. With a couple of winces thrown in for good measure.
