    Len Kasper is new White Sox radio play by play announcer

    One reason Cubs fans are so upset is because he is going to the White Sox. They wouldn't be half as upset if he was going to the Padres.

    Bill Walton is great in small doses, especially when he is just being Bill Walton and not the cartoon version of himself.

    That's a fair point. I would imagine if some are not yet, me being one, listening to a lot of podcasts, you probably will be in a couple of years. I just can't get over a guy going from the Cubs TV booth to the White Sox radio booth, and all to hopefully call a WS some day? There is something fishy here IMO. Did he apply for the job? How did they know he could be had and the Cubs would let him go? Did the Cubs tell him he was out so he took this job? It just doesn't seem to me this happened like they want you to believe it happened. In the end it doesn't matter but I woul be curious to know.

    I am pretty sure the Sox don't pay their radio guys. ESPN does. So I hope Merkin is wrong. OTOH, to get the Cubs TV PBP guy to come be your radio guy isa bit ofa coup especially not even one year after their new network that was going to make them trillions, started broadcasting.

    It's a radio announcer. Unless you are a truck driver, the minot league invites to spring training is bigger news.
  6. That’s a bad take. If your neighbor got looped and decided to go out in the back yard and just shoot his gun off, would you be OK with that as long as no one was hurt? A car is a weapon when you are drunk. He already was arrested for this offense previously and Mr. Sincere Legitimacy told us it would never happen again. And it did. And when it did, he thought his HOF ring was a get out of jail free card. He has shown his true colors.

    Yeah, that is scary. I think I have listened to less than 2 games total on the radio the last 5 years. Only when I am driving some place and the game is on. So this doesn’t really do much for me.

    Chances are he took a pay cut. Radio doesn’t generate anywhere near the revenue of TV. It could be as simple as he wanted to do radio and a possible WS at some time or maybe there were issues. The ties were ridiculous.

    James McCann looking at a 4 year deal (perhaps Mets)

    The real Cohen doesn’t appear to be signing Realmuto.

    He sounds like Kermit the Frog.

    Kyle Schwarber thread

    If KW read Schwarbers goodbye tweet to Cubs fans, he may offer Kyle more than his arb number. In it he said he loved to grind with his teammates. He’s a grinder.

    The other thing with people freaking out McCann won’t be there for Giolito, there is a simple solution. Have Giolito call the game and have him give Grandal the signs. Problem solved.

    Exactly. It’s not worth gambling an injury or a bad year. Make your money, you earned it the last 2 seasons, the White Sox need to move on and get a back up for Grandal. Maybe it’s Collins, maybe it’s someone else.

    I think other than not using him vs, Berrios I believe, I think he is the one McCann kills and Ricky had him riding pine a couple of times, he used him masterfully. This is a guy a lot of Soxtalk were irate the Sox signed in the first place thinking he was no Kevan Smith. And I agree, I think over exposure may hurt his numbers a bit. But he has earned a shot at a regular job. Hope for him it goes well he seems like a good guy.

Maybe it’s Collins, maybe it’s someone else. if I am Hahn, I am asking my scouts who is the best framer, thrower and game caller of the back up type free agents, and that combo is who I am going after. Framer and thrower might be more important as I think LaRussa likes to call pitches unless they have a HOFer baseball person, someone who is legit, like Fisk, behind the plate.
