No question, Hawk makes my blood boil. I mean I'm sure he's a nice guy, but he has no business being our (or anyone's) announcer anymore because he is a baby, and because of this ridiculous cronyism in the Sox organization that oftentimes runs counter to professionalism and consistency has gone on too long.

That being said, I didn't catch the MLBT throwdown today but I saw this The Will To Win thing and as much as I loathe Hawk, I can't argue with what he's saying there. It's something I've thought about a lot, being an athlete, loving baseball, and watching certain guys over the years like Beckham, for example, fall on his face despite lofty goals and hype, while someone like Matt Kemp or Andrew McCutchen (or pick someone else that was a 5th rounder or something that has gone one to be a star) can seemingly dominate the game at times.

I don't have enough time to get that deep into it right now but maybe I'll chime in later if someone else takes it from here.
