(Peter from Chicago)
Because a lot of White Sox fans enjoy his work, I assume, and they're the target market. I'm not in the "fire Hawk" camp, actually. Would I rather Hawk were replaced by a Len Kasper clone? Sure. But odds are he wouldn't be replaced by a Len Kasper clone--he'd be replaced by someone who sounds a lot like other announcers and doesn't have a very distinctive style, and I think that would be a net negative. If I had to listen to Hawk every day, it might be enough to put me off baseball, but the great thing is that I always have the option not to. I don't seek out Hawk, but every now and then I'll catch one of his ultra-enthusiastic homer calls or stunned, bitter silences on MLB Network, and either one is always good for a chuckle. Vive la différence. (Ben Lindbergh)

(chiefsalsa from Utah)
1. Kuiper and Krukow (Bias!)
2. I'm with you on Sutton and Grace (mostly for Daron Sutton)
3. Len Kasper and Bob Brenly (big fan of Kasper)

You'll probably notice based on my choices that I weigh the play-by-play man far more heavily than the color guy. (Daniel Rathman)
