Dodgers broadcaster Joe Davis has been named the fifth-best sports media talent under the age of 40, according to The Big Lead.

Davis has been fantastic in his few seasons for the Dodgers, especially when keeping in mind that he had to fill the shoes of the beloved Vin Scully.

Here is what The Big Lead had to say regarding Davis:

“Joe Buck would be the first talent signed in sports media in an open market. His presumed heir apparent Joe Davis wouldn’t be far behind. Like Buck, Davis is elite in memorable moments. Despite being many years away, it’s not hard to see a World Series in Davis’ future. The strong-voiced play-by-player has done as well as anyone could have imagined in replacing a legend in Vin Scully as the voice of the Dodgers.”

Ahead of him were only Laura Rutledge/Maria Taylor of ESPN, Charissa Thompson of Fox Sports, Big Cat/PFT Commenter of Barstool Sports, and Tony Romo of CBS.

Davis came in ranked above numerous elite talents like basketball’s Shams Charania as well as baseball’s Jeff Passan.

We know and love Joe Davis for his timeless home run calls and his ever-loving personality, but it is great to see him receive praise from a place that isn’t Dodger Stadium.

  1. Buck hates the Dodgers and his leaden style is anything but elite. John is what makes that pair and Joe Davis and Smoltz were better in last year’s playoffs.

  2. Good grief. Joe Davis is terrible. He can’t tell a story to save himself. He waffles on about cherry picked stats that have no actual significance. He has no general knowledge. He’s dull. And he can’t pronounce the words ‘Scully’ or ‘Dodgers’.

  3. Joe seems like a nice guy and I respect the fact he’s out there trying to make a living. The problem I have is his “informative” announcer voice where he finishes his sentences with a higher informative pitch. It’s somewhat common with broadcasters but I still feel like I’m being talked to by a kindergarten teacher. IT’S ANOOYING ASF. The greatest of all time ( Chick and Vin) never had that cheesy tone. They just spoke how they always did throughout their lives and to no surprise, each one became a living legend. It’s even rubbed off on Orel which is annoying but I’ll give him a pass since he’s the Bulldog
