1. Ernie Harwell His Southern voice -- rich and authoritative but not overbearing -- became as distinctive to Michigan listeners as baseball itself. That's how Detroit Free Press writer John Lowe described Harwell in his graceful tribute to the life of the broadcaster, who passed away last week at 92. Having lived in Michigan for eight months last year, I got a small slice of the love Michiganders had for the announcer. This intimate connection, forged by the medium of radio, is sadly becoming an endangered species. As SI's Tom Verducci wrote last week, Harwell had an understated elegance, which has become "a lost art given the audaciousness, trumped-up signature calls and desire to be noticed in broadcasting today." (Here's looking at you, John Sterling). His life and times produced some remarkable tributes, including here and here, and of particular note was this terrific compendium on the Free Press Web site.

1. John Smoltz, Turner and MLB Network: Of all who signed with baseball broadcasting entities this offseason, from Aaron Boone to Nomar Garciaparra to J.P. Ricciardi, Smoltz has the best chance for long term stardom. The future Hall of Fame pitcher was pursued by ESPN, Fox, Turner and the MLB Network because their executives saw the same thing baseball beat writers did: an intelligent and thoughtful voice on the game. Smoltz will call regular-season and playoff games for Turner and do a handful of games for Peachtree Television (they broadcast Braves games along with Fox Sports South and SportSouth). He'll also work about 15 games for the MLB Network. As for a midseason comback, Smoltz said it's unlikely to happen.
