He's started keeping imaginary scores, and updates you on that. Like last night, there was a blown out call that cost the Sox a run. At the end of the inning, he said something like "It's 1-0 Cleveland, but it should be 1-1." He gave that updated score multiple times until the Sox took the lead.

Dan McLaughlin's "Look what I found!" every single time a pitcher successfully fields a comebacker always makes me cringe.

Dan and Al can be annoying, especially when they repeat stories we've all heard 20 times, but they do a good job of doing things like criticizing cardinals players for not hustling, or making mental mistakes, and regularly second-guess the managers. Not always for the right reason, but it's clear they are free to speak their minds and aren't held to regurgitate any kind of party line.
Although by the metrics in this article, if they said "wow, that was a strike, but the umpire called it a ball- *we* caught a break", they'd score higher on homerism, so whatever.

the word for hawk, unless everything is going the Wsox way, is "petulant"
