WAR/WAR Ratings for Announcers

Advanced statistics can be applied to Royals' announcers too, you know. 

I have developed a rating system for announcers which I like to call the announcer's WAR/WAR rating:   i.e., Wild Ass Remarks/While Announcing (for) Royals.   

It's time to quit talking about our announcers' grit, hustle, etc.   I propose here nothing less than an objectification of the announcers' performance.   During the course of the season I shall be rating the announcers on a periodic basis, but for now, on this day of great optimisim, all announcers will start with a Zero WAR/WAR rating.   Then,hypthetically, if somebody brings up their playing days at the University of Minnesota, or rhapsodizes about the virtues of bunting, their WAR/WAR rating will be adjusted, accordingly.    Since I made this up, my decisions are final.   I am, for present purposes, not unlike the much-maligned Thing of Icelandic legend, and expect to be treated accordingly. 

Do bear in mind:   a UZR (unusually zany remark) will be worth double points in this system.    

Please feel free to post your predicted WAR/WAR ratings for your favorite announcer in the comments.    I shall give such predictions due regard.
