Whenever DJ says "How often do you see a guy make a great play in the field, then he leads off the next inning." I hear him say this every time someone makes a half way decent catch and then he leads off batting. I think he has said this like 5 or 6 times so far this year. It's just getting old.

of all of the over used items, that is the one that gets me the most. "If he hits a long one, the Sox are tied/ahead/back in this game." Farmer, please stop telling me the obvious benefit of a homerun!

Let's see, when the Sox are at bat I'm gettin' real tired of the following:

-"Strike one"

-"Strike Two"

-"Struck him out!"

-"Grounded to [fill in the infielder of your choice]"

-"Can of corn"

etc., etc., etc....

Hawk complaining about the use of a bullpen...

"Maaan, I'll tell ya fiesty, back a few years ago all you had to worry about was the 9th inning, then it turned to 8 and 9... now you even have to worry about the 5th and on"

also

"JUST missed that"

"That's a cookie right there, he JUUUUST missed it"

"I know that Juan is hitting .160, but that doesnt tell the story of a ball player. This is a guy who can carry you for long periods of time."

"I know they are hitting .235, but don't tell me you hit it, but when you hit it."

"X hitter was just a little quick on that one."

"He got a cookie and missed it."

"I know "X pitcher who just came off of a 9 run 2 inning performance" has a 7.14 ERA, but I just want to know how. This guy is putting on a clinic of how to pitch."

Nailed it. Of all the things that bother me during Sox broadcasts - and there are many of them - their perpetual excuse-making for either why it's okay for some nobody on another team to crush the Sox, or why some terrible Sox player isn't actually that bad, is the reason I watch with the sound off.

"I tell you, that Dewon Day is one heck of a pitcher. Don't let that 11.4 ERA fool you, when he comes out of the pen, he's ready to throw the baseball."

DJ loves to use the phrases "thought process" and "keeping his focus". And how can we forget, "he's gonna go ahead..."

And what, DJ?

Cliches followed by cliches followed by more cliches. Nine innings of nothing.

Not to be literally taken, but this is what drives me nuts:

:hawk

"Well DJ..........mercy........7-1 final score with the White Sox on the short end. Now I'm not gonna blame the umpires here, but I just have to say that in the top of the fourth, with two out and nobody on, the home plate umpire called a pitch that looked to be outside for strike one against Jim Thome. Now if you been around this game as much as I have over the past fifty years or so, you realize how much the little things can effect the outcome of a game. I don't think our fans will be able to recognize these types of things, and they probably shouldn't - because they're not around the ballpark as much as you and I are - but we are and we know. Well the next thing you know, the Rangers scored six in the bottom of the 7th inning, and there really isn't too much to say about that after it was all set in motion by a call made on Thome's first pitch in the top of the fourth, but DJ - both you and I know what I'm saying here."

:DJ

"Yes partner.........it's those little things that a fan might not catch, nor should they be expected to."

:hawk

I think I just hate when Hawk says that we should be winning if not for a bad call, like yesterday.

"If you're just tuning in the Sox SHOULD be winning 3-1, but a bad call gave 3 runs to Toronto"

Seriously????

"Where was that pitch?!"

I've quite watching a few games because of this... I'm absolutely tired of hearing about the umpires calls. I feel like I'm watching a little league game where the coaches have nothing better to do than complain about the 14 yr old umpire that calling balls and strikes for $5.

My problem with Hawk/DJ is when they get into serious fawn-over-the-pitcher mode.

Other than that, I'm find with their homerism. Right now, I've got MLB.TV on, and I'm listening to two extremely boring Jays announcers. (Don't know who they are; don't care. They could both be in Cooperstown, but they're BORING!)

Here's my question when it comes to "... and it's quickly 0-2." When is it not quickly 0-2? Is it possible to arrive at an 0-2 count slowly?

Yes, if Freddy Garcia or Jose Contreras is pitching.

If Hawk eliminated Stretch and Duckfart, it would be a good start.

DJ an Hawk need to stop saying, "I tell you what...". Just say it.

HebrewHammer

I'm tired of hearing about a "season long slump." When it lasts for a season, that's not a slump. It's called sucking or not being very good at baseball. According to Hawk and DJ, Juan Uribe has been in a three year slump. That's a career of suckage.

"Sit back relax and strap it down." Enough already.

"He's got the catbird seat." Uh, what? 1920's slang?

Arra instead of error.

Almost anything that falls out of Harrelson's mouth.

It's possible Jackson might be okay if he got away from Harrelson. Possible, anyway. He doesn't do too bad on the Fox games he does. He seems more alive.

DJ: That'll bring up Paulie, he's only batting .227 on the season, but that don't tell the whole story. He has driven in 20 BIG ribbies already on this short season.

Hawk: Dadgum right Feisty, Don't tell me WHAT your hittin', tell me WHEN you hit it!

I don't follow the Sox on TV -- just the radio.

Some things I am sooo tired of hearing from Farmer . . .

"A bloop and a blast and we're back in this game"

"He likes the first pitch" : and 90 times out of 100, the batter takes the pitch.

"tagged and bagged" for a home run call

to Stone, he says "Did you ever (fill in the blank) when you played?"

For Stoney, back when he was doing Cubs TV with Harry, he always would point things out to "all you young ballplayers." He's only used that phrase a few times on Sox radio broadcasts, but it brings back overused cliche from his TV days.

With Stoney too, I've always hated him referring to a strikeout as a FAN. I understand a swing and a miss strikeout, but how do you FAN at a called third strike. That just urks me.
