Trying to deflect some attention from the post game thread. Listen, we all know that D.J. sucks. I appreciate the fact that he tries hard, and that he played hard for us, and that he roots for us and with us through this glorious season. And I like him. But he is just not very good in the booth. If you could pick anyone to be Hawk's partner for the most dynamic duo in recorded history, who would it be? Even though a dead person would still be better than Santo, pick someone who is living. I choose ..... Ditka.

Amen, Paciorek ruled. Although I wish he would've belted Hawk in the F#$%g mouth on several occasions in the booth.

I can't see Sox games on TV anymore, so my opinion doesn't count, but my dream partner for Hawk would be doing Sox games with someone other than Hawk. His countrified musings and digressions into the world of golf are always annoyed me.

I agree that Paciorek ruled. Harrelson should have retired to let him do Sox games in peace.

I agree. Hawk was too often a complete jackass to Paciorek on the air.

"Black" Jack McDowell. Great personality, good stories, and a great white sox player.

steve stone would also be a good choice, both for the local popularity and the fact that he seems to know everything about baseball.

Burns and Boerstein.

Serious answer: Steve Stone.

But the catch is Hawk would have to show him the respect to take the mic and talk on subjects.

Half of the problem with DJ is that I believe Hawk wants a shill in there, someone that does not compete with him.

I have a question in regards to the query. Is Hawk a drinking man? I'd enjoy seeing Hawk teamed with Harry Caray B.C. ( Before Cubs, and he became a national sideshow ). Take Harry from the 1970's, and team him with Hawk. Here's another fantasy I find amusing: Hawk and DW.
Seriously, I think Hawk's ego is too big to work effectively with a guy like Stone. Hawk and Ventura sounded pretty good in the booth. How about Hawk and Tommy Lasorda? Or Hawk and Pete Rose?

Exactly. Drysdale and Hawk were my favorites. But yes, since Drysdale's upstairs now, Hawk and Wimpy would be a great combo again if Hawk could get off Paciorek's back.

Black Jack McDowell was better in his one series this year than DJ has ever been.

My dream choice would be Wimpy but since that possibility isn't very real, I'd go with Black Jack.

Paciorek ruled.

Ventura has been good when I've heard him much better then another ex-sox commentator Steve Lyons.

I honestly feel bad for DJ, cuz he does try hard.....he's gotten better but alas his best isn't up to par (Hawk would enjoy the golf refference).

Speaking of golf stories being annoying, I think Ed Farmer and John Rooney spend a lot more time talking about golf then even Hawk does.

For some reason though their golf stories don't tend to annoy me as much though, despite the fact that I never golf myself.

So in summary:

Let's go Wimpy!, clap clap clap-clap-clap) Let's go Wimpy!

Southsiiiiiide!

I think there is some revisionist history going on here.
Recently, I've watched some old games with Wimpy and Hawk and at times Wimpy was bad....real bad.
Now he's better than DJ but that's not saying much.
But I don't mind DJ and I love Hawk.
What I like is that they don't talk through the whole damn game. They let it breath.
But if I had to choose a replacement it'd be Stoney. I mean he's just the best in the business for my money.

No, just no. Its deja vu all over again! I came up with gettin rid of DJ before, but my thread wasn't too well recieved. I'll take back my original idea and have Hawk and Stoney on TV.

Baby Fisk
08-07-2005, 12:47 PM
Black Jack by a mile.

Another idea I always liked was a female announcing partner for the Hawk. Some local lady with tons of south side sass. The chemistry would have to work, but if it does, it would be a unique combo. Do any local nominees come to mind?

Bucky F. Dent
08-08-2005, 12:31 PM
My initial reaction is...ME!

My second, equally impossible, reaction is Don Drysdale!

Loved his work! RIP, DON!

Failing all of that, give me Wimpy!

I'd like Steve Stone, but I don't know if the announcers booth is big enough for the collective egos of those two. Black Jack would be good, too. In all honesty, though, I like DJ.

I won't be too upset if they get a whole new team. I'm not a big fan of either one of them. I think they are worse then ever. But, as long as they win, they can put Ron Santo in the booth (ok, I won't go that far...).

I think the radio broadcast should always have the best, and most professional announcers. On television, you can actually see the game, so I look for more entertainment from my broadcasters.

That being said, my dream Sox broadcasting teams would be.......

Radio: John Rooney/Steve Stone (With Dan Bernstein doing the pre and post game shows)

Television: Bob Uecker/Jimmy Piersall

while he would be a great analyst, i would keep waiting to hear him tell stories from his days on the Mr. Belvedere set. too distracting for me as i would simply not listen until i heard the name Lynn Aloicious Belvedere, and his crazy shenanigans with a family in a Pittsburgh suburb.

I donít know about "dream" partner; nightmare, maybe. I think it would be a riot to get Jimmy Piersall back in the booth, even for just a few games. And thatís probably what theyíd have on their hands Ė a riot. Or at least a contingent of angry picketers, after Jimmy lobbed a few gratuitous insults in some groupís direction.

Seriously, though, I really enjoyed hearing what Jimmy had to say (about baseball, anyway) back when he carried on with Harry Carey in the late 1970ís.
