Default Hawk's schedule to be reduced more in 2018

Enjoy him while he's still around.

This is a good thing. Jason should be doing all 162 games soon.

I'll enjoy listening to him. Been doing so since '82.

Hawk Harrelson is a White Sox through and through. Nothing but respect for all he's contributed to the club for many years.

When a team is ready to suck for a few years and you're as old as he is, why bother. I don't blame him. Plus, he's such a homer it will be dreadful broadcast with all the losing.

For better or worse the end is coming for Hawk and I think even he is finally starting to realize it. It took him awhile, probably longer than it should have but he's finally getting it.

I like this guy Russ Langer that has been doing the webcast spring games. He's very good. He also had a young guy on for a couple games earlier that was excellent. The two of them were one of most enjoyable broadcast teams I'd heard in a loooooong time. I wish I had caught the name of the color guy. It wasn't one of our ex-players.

I've soured on Bennetti and Stone. At first, I liked the change away from Hawk, who I have tired of, but I don't care for the interplay between Stone and Jason much and I didn't like Bennetti as color guy with Langer the other day.

I couldn't get through ten minutes of Jason and Stone on the game over the weekend before I had to turn it off.

Oh, boy! More "Sox Math!" More "Prize Shelf!" More "Sticks and Stone," so we can find out how Steve Stone fared against Ed Kirkpatrick! More bad jokes!

It's rough.

Funny, that's how I feel about Hawk.

I hope he's ok physically but his time as GM and announcer illustrates his staying power with this owner.
