One of my biggest issues with "hambone" is there is nothing that ties it to a 4 bagger. There's nothing historical behind it like with "turkey", and there is nothing with it that even equates to 4, unlike using nickel for a 5 bagger at least has some sense to it, with a nickel being 5 cents or a 6 pack for a 6 bagger. If he wants to make up a name for a 4 bagger then tie it in and not just pull an obscure reference with food out of the air because of turkey for 3 in a row.
The other is he gets so excited about it before it even happens, which does seem to be a jinx, but lets face it even for pros stringing 4 or more strikes is hard to do. Its much like football on TV
, they will show a graphic that says the quarterback on the field hasn't thrown and interception in something like 150 attempts and then 3 plays later there's an interception. It happens 95% of the time when I'm watching.
As an announcer I don't have much issue with Stone other than what I've already said. He is learning, shows some enthusiasm and doesn't just sound like a robot.
