Default Chip Carey is the worst announcer in baseball

No doubt in my mind. After the Cubs just got lucky against KW's worst move (Olivo for Bradford) Bradford, Chip Carey says that it is "Nearly impossible to come back in the 9th inning in the major leagues, against a teams closer."

You are right, Chip. As always. Oakland has used Rhodes, Mecir and Bradford to close games, they obviously don't have a problem.

I just hate how everything has to be bigger than it is. Everything is an adjective...BELTED...MILE HIGH...HOT SHOT...

give it up already, Chimp. Stick to your blown slaves.

I agree with every word you say. Don't forget than him and Stone are probably the whiniest announcers in all of baseball. When the Sox pitcher doesnt call a call, Hawk will just say "Close," respecting the call from an ump. Chimp and Stone will complain about a missed strike call and how it should have gone the other way for two innings. Everything is always the umpires' fault with them.

I actually found the opposite to be true. I was watching the Sox-Braves game a week or so ago, there was a close call on Andruw, and Hawk had a fit. Then Marrero hit a bases-clearing double. Hawk was harping on it the entire game, thereafter. Happens quite a bit.

Hawk is definitely a homer no doubt. And I have no problem and actually like when team's announcers are like that. But the hyperbole Chimp bathes in is just ridiculous.
Why doesn't he just quit and become John Cusack's cabana boy??
I like Steve Stone. Do we remember Joe Carter??
Sean McDonnough(sp) who does games for Boston is great.
Everyone is so high on John Miller but I think he's overrated.

I'm biased but for my money it doesn't get any better than Hawk.

You won't get an argument from me in regards to Chip. He needs a lot of work.

Well I didnt watch that game, but I can hardly recall a time in my personal experience that Hawk has done that. It seems whenever I turn on the Cubs game that Chip and Steve Stone are whining about every little missed call, even sometimes when it was a good call.

My biggest problem with Chip is that he won't. shut. up.

Why do we need to know the time every 15 minutes?

"Well let's see now...it's 6pm here in Chicago. That means it must be 5pm in Denver, 4pm in San Francisco, 7pm in New York, and I want to say if you're somewhere in Indonesia about now, your clock probably reads something in the area of 10am, but not THIS morning, TOMORROW morning. Gee Stoney, does that mean that if you're in Indonesia on New Year's Eve and you fly west that you can, in fact, GO BACK IN TIME to last year? But don't quote me on that last one. It might only be 8am or something to that effect....what? you mean there's 3 outs already? My, how time flies when you're talking about the time zones of the world....."

I was watching the game with my bro, and I heard him say that and I cringed, too. Octavio Dotel? Chad Bradford? You're thumping your chest about beating these guys?

I laughed when Chip said "The Cubs have come ALLL they back to steal this one!"



Chip, it was one freaking run, they didn't come all the way back from anything.

Hawk will usually wait to see if the call will affect the game. Steve Stone will cry about Mark Prior not getting his low fastball called a strike a second after the ump calls it a ball.

Why do you think Cubs fans are so stupid? They are fed constant miracles that are happening everyday with their team. Chip is a loser.

As does every announcer I've ever heard. Most don't harp about it for the next 2 hours though.

Can you give a specific example of a second game when Hawk has done this?
