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.
