I've always liked Hawk, but this really should be his final season. Beyond his comical reactions, which have turned into spectacles, he's regularly making mistakes about number of outs, score, etc. The organization should not allow an old man to embarrass himself.

I agree that JR needs to sell. Short of that, the organization needs an overhaul. The team is sliding in so many ways, and someone needs to come in and make real changes. To go on like this is insane.

As far as Hawk goes, once in a while you get honesty. But he seems desperate for anything good to happen and it shows when he gets excited about long outs that still don't have a chance of being a home run or even a double.

Are you forgetting his call for Mark's perfect game? It was uncomfortable.

JR doesn't necessarily need to sell at this point, but he needs to institute a housecleaning.

You know what? I don't think I've ever heard it. What did he say or do? Do I want to know?

I'll have to find it on YouTube and watch or listen to it. It certainly looks bad, but I'll have to see how it sounds.

He did it in 2005 with the Crede walkoff.

Oh I think he has passed up Santo, and Sox fans are to Hawk what Cub fans were to Santo, the only group not in on the joke.

How are any of us not in on the joke? I think most people know that he sucks.

It would be worth listening to and comparing Hawk's call of the final out of the perfect game to Dave's for the Tampa network.
