Masur to replace Ed Farmer in booth

Recommended Posts

Masur is okay but it sure would have been nice to have an established, veteran radio voice to call the games. 

Is this more about being cheap or giving a young guy a chance?

Hiring John Rooney back would have saved 2020.  

One can dream.

They should have never let him walk.

Rooney walked because the new radio deal was kind of small and salaries were cut. Masur has experience. DJ is a tool.

No one replaces Ed Farmer.

I mean he literally was a PxP guy for the Padres for nearly a decade

seems like a placeholder hire

I think Wills' contract is up after this season so that may be interesting timing

I would love to have Wills back to call Sox games.  He was the best post game host imho.  That being said, Masur has been good when he has filled in so I have no problem with the move.

Speaking of Dave Wills, I looked up his info and saw in college that he also worked for SportsPhone, a call-in service that provided one minute of sports scores and updates for Chicago.   Haha, I had totally forgot about Sportsphone until I read that and said "Oh Yeah, I remember calling into that to get scores."  Times sure have changed since my first flip phone. ^_^
