Obviously as a “broadcaster”. That would be laughable. It would be like Dan Gladden in the Hall as a broadcaster. The broadcasters that are in are true elite immortals. I’m fine with that.

When posting something of such ridiculousness a link is required.

For us all to point and laugh at of course.

I don't want Hawk in the HOF but I do think that some guys - Jim Kaat - should be considered for their overall contribution. As a player, Kaat is borderline but he's been a great ambassador to the game for the last, what, 30 years? Seems like the hall could recognize individuals like that.

With Morris in there,Kaat is way over that borderline.

Unfortunately for broadcasters there is no statistic that shows their worth. What do they have to go off of other than longevity?

A.J. probably wants Hawk’s job now that he’s done ... or have the Sox already announced Hawk’s replacement. You’d think I’d know that living here, but I don’t.

Reputation I suppose. Which is why Harrelson has no chance. Posting links doesn’t work well with my dinosaur phone. But it is all over Chicago media.

He has coined a bunch of phrases and has some memorable calls which helps, I think.

The worst announcer ever.
