I couldn't vote for Ed Farmer with a good conscience. Hawk & Rooney did get my vote though.

When will people realize that sometimes dead air is nice when you have a picture. Other announcers fill dead-air with garbage like talking about a baby sleeping in the stands. I would rather watch the game than hear that crap. Hawk, rooney, and farmer are all great.

The keyword in your post here is "sometimes", not most times, particularly when the Sox are losing, which is perhaps when some much needed distraction is necessary. I'm sorry, as much as I like his nicknames and a few of his catch phrases, Hawk doesn't bring much to the table, and to put him in the Hall of fame would be an insult to those that actually deserve to be there...like Rooney

Stop voting for Cardinal announcers to get in the hall.

Rooney and Farmer, NO HAWK...

I don't hate Hawk, I think every team should have someone in the booth rooting for them, but he's just too over the top. He really isn't all that great. Also, I can't vote someone in when he is my second choice for game broadcasts (If radio is available, I turn on Farmer and Rooney instead...)

Just a thought . . . Harry Caray is in the Hall. This may be offensive to many folks here, but I never thought he was that good. At times, he may have been truthful along with Piersall, but more overbearing than Hawk, and honestly, at least for all of his Chicago years, overrated as an announcer. Strong on personality, but skills were average, and became a cliche of himself with the Cubs, yet he is in the Hall (perhaps due to his better announcing days with the Cardinals).

So I can justify a vote for the Hawk to get in the Hall (but not sure if he would make it). Rooney is a solid choice. Farmer???? Ah . . . (remember, he's a St. Rita grad) . . . well, maybe not.

Wimpy sucked and vote for DJ?
Suffice to say, your taste in broadcasting is much different than mine. I just voted for Wimpy to negate your vote!

Hawk... absolutely! Rooney... absolutely!
Farmer? Just pick up your phone receiver and listen to the dial tone...
...that's the phone company's imitation of Ed Farmer.

Ed Farmer... he ain't no Gene Honda! :D:
