He's awful.

If there is a reason for me not look forward to the Sox season is that I have be reminded the ol Hawk is still the announcer. Baby First TV has been on in my house since May, and I'd still rather watch that constantly (hell, I already do) then listen to the ol Hawk talk about how the world is against the Sox.

I prefer to switch back and forth between games if there's a national game on (which is basically every day thanks to the advent of MLBN), and honestly with Hawk as the commentator I'm even more likely to spend less time with the Sox than I would otherwise.

I'm already dreading the Hawk part.

When it comes to Baby First TV characters I'm thinking the creators of VocabuLarry were inspired by Hawk Harrelson.

Yep


Dan Shulman is one of the worst. My nightmare is one day the Sox will hire him.

Really? You got that from "bub-bub dubba-dubba?"

I like him. But I'm not sure if it's because I know I'm listening to a college basketball game when I hear his voice

I'm a big Shulman fan--both baseball and NBA. He and Hershiser would be the best national team in the game if they'd stop with the extraneous third man in the booth (if you haven't heard, this year it's John Kruk)

PS--he signed an extension at ESPN last year. He's their #1 baseball voice AND does other sports. Why would he come to the White Sox?

You must be very confused on Sunday evenings from April to September.

I've always enjoyed listening to Hawk, but I agree that as he ages, his rants can get tiresome.

Some say he's too much of a homer, but as a long time Michigan fan, nobody, and I do mean nobody, has ever reached the level of the Bob Uffer who years ago was the Wolverines radio announcer. A few examples of which can be heard here: http://www.ufer.org/sounds.html . Its guys like Hawk and Uffer that can make the game more entertaining.

To me the most important fact is winning games. If the Sox are winning on a consistent basis, then who is announcing the game becomes of little importance.

He's alright, but I miss Jon Miller.

I agree. Oh, if they could have paired Miller with someone other than Joe Morgan...
