Here's some that I can think of:
"good morning, good afternoon, good night"

I don't know if it's just me, but it seems like he talks about home runs and the potential outcomes of Home Runs quite a bit. Such as, "if this guy gets on, the Sox would be a slam from tying it." It does get a little annoying when hearing it seemingly EVERY night.

and then he says something like "well that's just the way I see it, but I'm not trying to script it."

He also has been pointing out crap in the crowd lately. In one of the 'Burgh games some fan fell down across a couple of rows....

"and a fan took a dive across a couple of rows folks..[talks bout game for a few] he's down and hurt....[game for a few] ...why isn't anyone helping this guy?!"

He actually gave a good morning, good afternoon, good afternoon today. His reason was because it was a day game so there could be no goodnight. Then he changed his mind.

He is always saying, "this is as good as it gets." This made sense on October 26, when I first heard him say it, but now he says it for everything. "A 3-1 count, this is as good as it gets." "It's not raining today, this is as good as it gets." "Shanda is at the game today, this is as good as it gets." Apparently, 1000 things are in a tie for how good anything can get.

Count me in as one of the people who likes Farmer and Singleton. I know Singleton isn't the greatest but give him the benefit of the doubt and give him a chance to learn a little more.

I enjoy Farmio. There was nothing better than him and Rooney together. But, now that they're not a team anymore I still enjoy Farmer and all of his "Farmerisms".

Cut these guys some slack. They're not that bad. At least they're not as bad as Santo and Pat Hughes.

It makes me nuts the way he "projects" what could eventually happen. For example, "If the Sox are down by three in the eighth and Pierzynski hits a grand slam, the Sox will have the lead by one. If A.J. homers, he'll have one more on the season than he does now and that will give him five home runs. If he hits another one after that, then he'll have six."

Farmer and Singleton are horrible. Sound like a college radio station. We deserve better than that. I like Ed Farmer [St. Rita, long time Sox fan, former player etc ...] but he was awful as a color commentator. Ugh.. Oh well.

Two more Farmerisms:

After a batter takes a called strike 3: "He stood there like the house by the side of the road."

"There's a gork to right." (or left, or center . . . )

I don't think Farmer and Singelton are getting any better, I just think I am developing a tolerance for them.

A lot of people complain about Farmer's constant predictions or wishful thinking for a home run (it does get rather tired in a one or two run game, where his comment for every Sox batter is "a blast here ties it" "If Schilling hangs on here, we'll be in the lead" etc.), but for me, at least that gives a hint as to what the hell is going on. Especially during the week, I often don't have time to listen to the entire game, so I will tune in intermittently to check on the game. It is insanely frustrating waiting for what feels like an interminable amount of time for an update on game status, or, worst yet, to have to wait for the inning change. This has been a pet peeve of mine for years. The Rooney/Farmer team was better at describing a game, but they were no better at keeping you informed. Thank God for XM -- when I have my XM unit, it gives you a display of the score, inning, and how many out. There is a thread on the general baseball board here asking about favorite announcers. One thing that can be said about the best of the best, whether Jack Buck, Harry Carry in his prime, and others of that stripe is they constantly updated you on what the situation is without making it seem repetitious. This was driven home recently when I heard a recording of Harry calling Stan Musial's 3000th hit. He was crisp and on target, giving you the action in the game, but every so often, reminding the listeners of the inning, score, count, men on base etc. When its radio, you have to keep painting a picture.

I was at the game last Wednesday, and noticed that, at least for the time I was observing, Farmer and Singleton had a very unique posture for calling the game. Ed sat in the far corner of the booth, slouched back, arms folded, microphone set at an angle so he could sort of "lounge" while he called the game. People complain he has no emotion. I can see why. He looked like he could have fallen asleep. Chris, on the other hand, was actually standing toward the middle of the booth, and paced a little. This was not between innings, but during the play by play. They appeared to be ignoring each other. Very, very strange.

"He likes the first pitch." Applies to practically every
batter according to Farmio. Annoying as hell.

Britt Burns
07-10-2006, 09:38 AM
I didn't mind Farmer when he was paired with Rooney...at least Rooney was able to give you an idea what was happening in the game, making the Farmerisms easy to live with. Now with Chris 'He hits it to center (five minute pause) for a 3 run homer' Singelton in the booth with him...not so much.

Also, let's please pass a petition or make it a rule that if you are in a booth calling a baseball game, you should not be allowed to talk about golf for more than 30 seconds per game. Yes Hawk, this goes for you too. Oddly enough, most people don't tune into a baseball game to hear about what you shot the day before at the country club.

I think Singleton's been doing this since spring training, and Farmer has been trying to get him to settle down, saying he's going to wear himself out before the end of the season!

Also, someone (was it you?) mentioned earlier about keeping the score updated. Singleton does this well, but probably too often. Rooney was aweful at it.

Momentary hijack:

So there I am last night watching a Jack Benny show from the early '60s with guest star Tennessee Ernie Ford, when all of a sudden Ford says, "I rode him hard and put him away wet."

So now we know where Hawk got at least one Hawkism.

We now return you to your original thread, already in progress.

I agree, this irritates me more than anything. Shoot, last weekend against the Cubs, they spent more time updating the US Open leaderboard than telling us who's up to bat or what's happening.
Only golf talk I would understand is the annual tournament the Sox run for charity.

Back to the Farmerisms:

Predicting the home run: "If Thome hits one here <dramatic pause>, #30."

Tie after 8 1/2: "Let's get one and go home."

Set-up for any Ed Farmer story: "I talked to <name of person on other team here> before the game..."

No matter who they put in the booth there would be people here griping about how bad they are.

When two people talk about the same subject day after day for three hours or more at a stretch, they are going to:

A. Annoy you at times.

B. Say things that are silly or downright dumb on occasion.

C. Repeat themselves.

D. Discuss something off-topic to fill air time.

Both Farmer and Singleton know a lot about baseball and are witty guys who are a little offbeat with their humor. They're starting to work better as a team, and Singleton clearly has improved from the start of the season.

I mentioned this in another thread, but it could be a lot worse. If you have XM radio, listen to the announcers for other teams for a while and Farmer and Singleton may not look as bad.

I am starting to warm up to the Farmer/Singleton combo.

They have a certain goofy charm.

Lets look around the region, shall we?

Pat Hughes is good. Its his color man who detracts from the broadcast.

Jim Powell of the Brewers is outstanding. Uecker doesn't do a whole lot these days. During some of his PBP innings, he's silent for 5 mintues at a time.

The Detroit guys on WWJ sound like they're asleep.

The guys in Cleveland are the exact opposite. THEY. SCREAM. AT. EVERY. PLAY!!

For example, I was in Milwaukee during the final series of the 2005 regular season (it was the game in which our scrubs beat the Tribe in 13). I could not get WMVP all that well up in Wisconsin, but the Cleveland flagship was coming in loud and clear. Every play was huge!!!! BOONE POP FLY...THIS ONE'S GOT A CHANCE...AND ITS caughtbykonerkoonthefirstbasesideoftheinfield.

Bottom line, Farmio and Singleton are very natural. No fake energy, no ESPN catchphrases. I like it.

Yesterday in the 11th when Ross should have scored on the fly out by Crede, he said that Gload "looked like a squirrel in the middle of the road because he didn't know which way to go." And then when Cintron was up he said "my hands are prespiring. And I don't have anything to do with this game except for talking about it."

Louisville Slugger gave these pink bats away. MLB teams pay for the bats and other equipment, uniforms, etc. (minor league teams do as well).

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball/2005-05-24-cover-brokenbats_x.htm

Jim Tyler, Baltimore's clubhouse man, says the team orders 11-12 dozen bats a season per player; it was half that amount 20 years ago. The cost of bats for the team has risen 50% over the last five years, traveling secretary Phil Itzoe says.

One thing you may think ballpayers get for free but don't are the pre and postgame spreads in the clubhouse (home and away players). The clubhouse manager pays for the spread and the players pay their share plus tip. The regulars will throw in extra to cover for the callups and guys making the minimum.

Players do have their hotel and travel per diem paid for as negotitated in the CBA.

On Saturday when Singleton was talking about tickets being available for the next homestand and saying "space was limited" and Farmer chimes in saying " It's also the final frontier"

That's right when he was butchering quotes from Slapshot. "You know Eddie Shack, Real Time Hockey." :?:

I've got one I haven't seen on this thread, although I haven't listend too very much this year (really miss Rooney too much--turned down TV sound EVERY game in previous years).

On a tag out play at 2nd or 3rd base, if base runner is out by a mile, a favorite Famerism,

"...and he's gonna be out from here to Kokomo, Indiana (or fill in any distant city name here)."

I can't remember if it was Farmer or Singleton who occasionally refers to a good offspeed pitch as a "Bugs Bunny Change-Up."

And whenever a player is listed as day to day, Farmer philosophically adds: ''...but then again, aren't we all?''

The Bugs Bunny change-up is Farmer's shtick. On the latter, I've also heard him say: "He's listed day-to-day, just like the rest of us." :D:

I hope this hasn't been mentioned.

Farmer: Buehrle pitches like his car is double parked in the parking lot outside the stadium.

"New supply of baseballs out to the home plate umpire." I always catch him saying that one! "Fresh set of baseballs out to (insert umpires name)." It cracks me up everytime. "Here comes the batboy to give (insert umpires name) a new batch of baseballs."
