Sun-Times: Ken Harrelson likely to cut back schedule even more after 2017

“I didn’t say I wanted to broadcast four more years,’’ Harrelson told the Sun-Times. “The main thing is I just want to be in baseball four more years, not necessarily broadcasting.”

Harrelson said he will do Sox broadcasts this season, “and if I decide to do some games next year … it’s up to them.’’

Of the A-ball team in Kannapolis, sure.

I'm still looking to match up with that ############ on a pool table. When he played for the Senators he was a score, but I missed him every time he showed up.

Dadgumit!

Just retire man. Hawk is a boyhood hero but that was 20 years ago now. He has been brutal for at least 5 years now.

The worst announcer in any sport by far. Makes Joe Morgan look like Vin Scully. Hell, he makes Dick Vitale seem like a Rhodes scholar.

He's cutting back from YES to an understated yep.

Yes. And we are not just talking American sports. He is the worst I have ever heard from around the world.

Yeah but Angry Fuming Hawk makes for some great unintentional comedy.

He no longer has the will to broadcast?
   12. Barry`s_Lazy_Boy Posted: March 17, 2017 at 01:40 PM (#5418951)
I very much enjoy listening to Hawk.

You are objectively incorrect.

Your what hurts?

Not to make this OTP, but the overlap ratio of Hawk to Trump fans has gotta be damn close to 1:1. Like .99997 or something. Probably closer to .999999999.
   17. PreservedFish Posted: March 17, 2017 at 03:20 PM (#5419004)
It's what I call a basket of deplorables.

Maybe they're just blowhard enthusiasts in general.

This.

Aside: the predictability of the Hawk hatred is tired.

1. Link a Hawk-related article.

2. Get out the fainting couches for the HE'S THE WORST EVER IN ANY SPORT AND HE KILLS PUPPIES AND HATES ICE CREAM" crowd.

We get it. You don't like him.

my naive parents got me Hawk Harrelson's biography when I was a little kid. I believe I still have it somewhere. I think he's wearing a Nehru jacket on the cover, and if there was any salty language it would have gone over my head.

my older sister got Ball Four maybe a year later. I stole the book but had no idea what they were talking about, mostly.

But we do enjoy the snark, so why piss on the parade?

I was terrified by the horrific concept of a baseball squeezing a man, squeezing, squeezing so tightly that he could never hope to escape its inhuman grip. One of the most gruesome and bone-chilling twist endings in all of literature. Anyway, that's what I got out of the book.
