    Herrelson Reprimanded over Umpire Rant

    Ken "Hawk" Harrelson has been reprimanded by Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig.

    The Chicago White Sox announcer told ESPNChicago.com on Friday he got a phone call from Selig in the wake of his rant against umpire Mark Wegner on Wednesday during the White Sox's 4-3 victory over the Tampa Rays.

    "We had a talk," he said. "Actually, Bud talked and I listened. If it was a prize fight, they would have stopped it in the first round.

    "I also talked to (White Sox owner) Jerry (Reinsdorf), and I listened to him as well. That's all I really have to say."

    Can't stand that guy but if I was a Sox fan, I'd probably love him.


    His rant was awesome.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Even if he was right, there is still a professional way to go about it, instead of throwing a 7-year old temper tantrum.

    In the heat of the moment you've never yelled and gotten worked up? That's why I call it honesty. It was his reaction. You should have seen my reaction to a few of the calls in the Cubs/Cards series. I get worked up sometimes about stupid stuff. He didn't curse or anything. He just said his feelings of the situation. I commend that.

    Can't stand Hawk. What he said was right on, however it was unprofessional. Grab some bench!

    Not when on a the job, at least not to Hawk's extent. Let's be honest, Hawk was just ****** that it was his pitcher that got tossed. If the exact same situation happens, but just happens to the pitcher opposing the White Sox, Hawk doesn't go on that tantrum.

    Un-pro-fess-ion-al.

    Re: Herrelson Reprimanded over Umpire Rant

    He's a homer announcer. It's his job to be emotional about the Sox. Sometimes it goes too far, but you have to be willing to take that with a Guy like Hawk. It's why the fans love him. As far as the commish calling him? Fix the problem and you won't have blow ups like that on air, imo. If everyone agrees Hawk was spot on, then the core of the problem is with the umpires, not the people calling them out for doing a ****** job.

    Of course, MLB will do nothing to the ump who made the ****** call in the first place.
