Chicago White Sox color analyst Ken "Hawk" Harrelson didn't mince words when he opined that the 2013 club "don't have one butthole" on it.

Chicago White Sox color analyst Ken “Hawk” Harrelson didn’t mince words when he opined that the 2013 club “don’t have one butthole” on it.

Ken Harrelson, affectionately nicknamed “The Hawk,” a former baseball infielder and one-time Chicago White Sox general manager, has been the team’s color analyst for the better part of the last three decades.

And Chicagoans know just how blunt he can be about the White Sox – in fact, he’s even got his own list of “Hawkisms.”

We can add another one to that list.

On Saturday afternoon, during a game between the Sox and the Seattle Mariners, Harrelson was so ecstatic about the 2013 bunch that it reminds him of the team that advanced to the ALCS in 1983, during his first years as a White Sox broadcaster. And he also proclaimed that there are no dopes on the team (Ozzie Guillen, anyone? Perhaps recent Rangers acquisition A.J. Pierzynski?) that will threaten that chemistry.

Transcript follows. Video here.

“Well, I tell you guys, we got ourselves a nice little ballclub this year. And, and, this is, I think, has got some of the same ingredients that we had back in ’83. We got a terrific guy in (manager) Robin (Ventura) running the team; we got a terrific coaching staff, and all the guys like each other. So… that’s very similar… We don’t have one — we don’t have one butthole in the whole club.”
