I doubt those catchphrases appeal to young viewers.
I agree that an outgoing announcer is important. But they've got to be a positive personality, be for the Sox (without over-doing the rooting) and be respectful to the opponent (which Hawk often isn't; "He gone" and "Grab some bench" are bush).
The Sox had 3 announcers who are better than what they have: Singleton, Rooney and Wills.
