I enjoy the perspective of it. It's a complete change of pace from most other announcers and I do find some truth in what he says. Especially about baseball being a kids game. Thats why I enjoyed Buehrle so much. Did he ever shake off the catcher? He just threw and did not overthink. Keep it Simple Stupid applies to everything IMO including baseball.
We could try to discredit each others opinions and keep going in circles but each of us is entitled. I don't think you're wrong, I'm just saying that as a Hawk fan I appreciate what he brings. I'm probably one of the few that is proud of the fact he is our announcer. But I get why others don't like him.
