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.
