That's a good point. He sounds different because of his bias, it stands out. He takes away from the game. He's a fan. So obnoxious.
That might be the best way to put it. He's the guy sitting next to you at the game who's distracting. The guy you feel like telling "Dude, shut up and watch the game."
FWIW, McCarver never really bothered me. He explained the game like the viewer had never seen baseball so that would have been very annoying. Except he did it in a tone that was easy to ignore. Same with Morgan. If you listened to him, you'd inevitably think "Please shut up." But his tone was also easy to ignore. Not HH. You "hear" him.
