Hawk Squawks about umpire again

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

A national television crew worked Saturday's games, giving announcers Hawk Harrelson and Steve Stone a day off after Friday's game that saw another tirade from Harrelson about umpire Angel Hernandez.
Hernandez at first base ruled Alex Rios was out on what became an inning ending double play in the 10th inning, negating a Sox score.
``He's kind of pulling for us to win, it seems,'' manager Robin Ventura said with a smile. ``It's not a secret that he would like us to win every night.
``Playing here, that's part of the fun. He's into it and pulling for you. Sometimes the filter doesn't quite close all the way.''
Players have come to expect Harrelson's passionate ways about the Sox, despite some past controversies.
``He's the 26th, 27th and 28th guy. He's the Hawk,'' Paul Konerko said. ``What can you say? He' going to say whatever is on his mind. He's been around for a long time, he's been in baseball a long time. If he sees something he doesn't like, he's going to let people know. That's the Hawk.''
