If Hawk did the same thing, it would just be five minutes of silence followed by a "dadgummit."

The announcer is a little annoying, but this is classic! The truth hurts sometimes, but I'll be surprised if this guy is still employed by next week. :D:

....and yet the Indians looked pretty good when they played the White Sox. That doesn't say much about our team.

That rant was pretty weird. I only got about 1:40 into it before I heard enough.

Wow, complaining about hitters in the low .200's. Life must be tough for Indian fans.

KOTSAY! ONE THIRTY SEVEN! QUENTIN ONE SEVENTY TWO! BECKHAM ONE NINETY EIGHT!

Hawk would never do the same. He would just blame the umps, tip his cap to the opposing pitcher or blame everything on unlucky bounces.

Don't forget about being a good ball club that hasn't hit their stride yet...

I was thinking the same thing when he was going over the BA's. Lucky SOB's!

Don't forget "team errors".

As bad as the Tribe is, they mananged to beat us 5 out of 6 games.
We need someone to rant at these dead ass ballplayers on the Sox.

Does this guy actually call Indians games? I know he is the host of a show on Sports Time Ohio much like David Kaplan for Chicago Tribune Live!

I'm just curious if he is a radio or TV Indians play by play / color analyst.

If not, that puts a little different spin on this...big difference between Hawk or Farmer doing something like this and a David Kaplan.

You are right Lip, he is our version of David Kaplan and is not a TV or radio play-by-play or color guy.

Ah, those years after the new ballpark opened when the team was a Murderers' Row and the seats were packed. And now, back to.....Cleveland.

i have no idea what this announcer is talking about. it's still waaaay to early in the season. See how dumb that argument really sounds. we suck just as much as maybe a lil worse than the indians.

I've always felt :shrug: about the Indians. The only thing I have against them is that they are division rivals to the Sox but thats pretty much it. I was actually rooting for them in the '07 ALCS before they choked when they had the Red Sox on the ropes.

The Twins on the other hand....can go **** themselves.

Bruce is a former Chicago guy who had done Indians games years ago. I actually enjoy his TV sports talk show on STO. He brutally honest about Cleveland sports. I could not see Comcast people go off on the suckiness of the Sox.:angry:

I was giggling through most of it, but when did those imitation swings, I was in hysterics. Pure gold, although it almost sounds like he practiced the thing.

The Indians have 10 wins this year - 5 against the Sox.

If he gets fired, I guess it proves that the truth hurts.

If he doesn't, I'm not sure he could get in the CLE clubhouse without Secret Service protection.

Not quite Lee Elia ripping the fans, but a classic nonetheless.

That guy's a tool.

This rant looks as staged and scripted as humanly possible.

I agree that it sounded scripted as all hell. Still funny though.

I don't think his pain compares to ours. They at least knew going into the season that they weren't going to contend. Our roster is full of potential and just failing epically. That's far more painful IMHO.

He would've had a stroke by now if he had to watch Juan Pierre everyday.

I think you need to start going by the old adage: If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all...:D:
