So what, is he supposed to call the game completely depressed and upset about how terrible we are? It's like most on this board want him to call the game as if he was a disheartened  soxtalk poster. Have you ever in your life heard someone call a game/team like that? Of course not. Sure some of his stuff is a little silly, but the expectation that he deliver the game with the doom and gloom mentality that some of you wish is ridiculous to consider.

No, but he shouldn't treat it like he's broadcasting the favorites to win the WS. I posted this the other day, if you listen to him describe the White Sox, you wonder how they  ever lose a game, when the reality is, you wonder how they ever win a game.

I've also said, if the White sox had the team a couple of years ago most of us thought they would have, I'd enjoy most of his schtick.

“A little silly” is a massive understatement.

I think it’s more so that us fans just want him to call the game without making cringe worthy animal noises and acting like a complete dumbass frat boy clown.

SOUTHSIDE STAAAAAAND UP!!!!!

“Oh bother… Luis Robert caught the ball at the wall and we’ll still lose.”

This is actually what we all want.

It's bad but as others have noted, it's not really the worst thing about him. The worst thing about him is that he's whistling past the graveyard regarding an 120 loss team while showing little if any baseball knowledge in the process. I can at times stand being talked down to by Stone, at least he knows a little baseball. But John? Hell no.

That’s “The Legend” to you!

This part. The action on the field is already unwatchable, the last thing we need is to be assaulted with intelligence insulting cringe inducing nonsense on a game to game basis.

We as Sox fans just want something organic, real, and not manufactured.

If you don’t understand that, you’re not qualified for the job.

Wait............we had Hawk for soooo many years.  You don't think he fit any of the manufactured, not real at times, and not organic mold???????

A good announcer can make bad baseball more enjoyable, and at worse, more palatable. The White Sox are an extreme case in how bad they are, sure. But I'm not subjected to nails on a chalkboard cringe when I listen to out of town baseball, even when it's two bad teams.

That's becuase most of your PBP announcers in MLB are cookie cutter.

Like or not, John is not that.

Yeah, this.  Hawk was this on steroids.

Kind of hard to sort out what he was saying there with the double negatives, but are you guys saying Hawk was fake?? I mean say what you will about Hawk but he always came off as genuine to me
