Who do you think is Hawk's favorite player on the team?

I think it's Joe Crede. There is no one that Hawk gushes over more than Joe Crede. He loves that guy.

I don't have a clue about DJ, Farmer or Singleton though.

Isn't Hawk a big AJ fan? I swear I heard him talking about watching AJ play in high school.

Hawk's been gushing man-love all over Crede this season, with good reason. He's playing the best baseball of his career.

Definitely Crede but Thome has got to be a runner up. You can hear him smiling with glee even when he flies out.

Hawk is in love with Crede, IIRC he even said during today's game that Joe is set to have a career season.

Carl Yastrzemski doesn't play for us.

Wel... Sox only, but if you want to talk other teams, he's said on numerous occasions that his all-time favorite was George Brett.

Hah. He definitely gushes over the "TOWWWERING Fly ball" and has a good laugh every time Thome hits one.

Bert Blyleven. Every time we play the Twins, he recites Bert's stats and laments the fact that he is not in the HoF. And I totally agree with him.

Yea the man love for Crede is abundantly obvious, but he has loved A.J. since he was in high school in Florida. Listen to Hawk when A.J. takes a weird swing, he get all giggly and seems to enjoy it way to much.

George Brett's his all time fav, but he does get all goofy when he talks about AJ. Coincidentally (sp?) he calls them both "Dennis the Menace."

Buehrle by far. I've never had the chance to see Catfish Hunter pitch, or be a good teammate, but Mark reminds me of him all the time thanks to Hawk.

Buehrle without question. He's constantly comparing him to Catfish Hunter.

I'm gonna say Buehrle or Crede. Hard to pick between the two too.

Hawk's favorite player is definately Crede. Just listen to the way he talks about him. How about Crede's play today...another webgem

Gotta be Crede....he leaves Hawk speachless when he hits a big HR or makes a great play. Hawk just says his name over and over again.

Last year Hawk said of Buehrle "We're looking at a future Hall of Famer". I hope he's right. It does seem like comparisons to Catfish and inductions into the HOF may be a bit premature, but Buehrle is hard not to love if you are a Sox fan.

As for Hawks favorite player, it seems to me it is the guy who conventional wisdom says is a so-so player, and Hawk for whom feels a need to challenge the conventional wisdom. Crede fit the bill last year.

Actually, Hawk is looking pretty smart regarding Crede these days. Last year, people were down on Crede, and Hawk correctly pointed out (ad nauseum, but correctly) that Crede's defense was more than making up for his lack of offensive punch. Given Joe's clutch hitting down the stretch last year, his great postseason, and his hot start at the plate this season, Hawk has every right to gloat all he wants. He was right about Crede, and the dopes (on this site and elsewhere) who were calling for Crede's benching or mortgaging the future for a trade to Oakland for Chavez were way wrong.

Hawk has always said his all time favorite is George Brett.

Current Sox player--I'll go with AJ.

Did you see Crede field that ground ball in the 10th inning and hear how proud Hawk was, all he could say was "look at this" cause he was so overcome with Joe Crede manlove.

I think that was more for Ichiro. He almost beat it out.
