Len Kasper is new White Sox radio play by play announcer

Recommended Posts

Also sucks for Andy Masur.  But he and DJ didn't sound very good together on the radio.  Honestly I love DJ but he doesn't really sound great with anyone.  I think he would probably be a better pre and post guy.  But that said I really do love DJ.  He's one of the most likeable people ever.

Also not to sidetrack this but cable tv packages really need to be ala carte already.  I didn't want to pay the extra few dollars for Marquee anyway, but now?  There's really no reason to force people to have channels they don't want, especially when it's just a bunch of garbage.  Cubs baseball the next 2-3 years is going to be absolute garbage IMO.  Like they're pre-rebuild Sox but without the horses in the rotation.  Watch them trade Bryant for the equivalent of Brett Lawrie.

He’s the worst.  But I live out of state and tuned into Farmer and DJ about once a year so it won’t affect me.  If this stings for cubs fans a little bit then awesome.

LMAO this is hilarious. Texted my buddy who is a Cubs fan this just now. We both have met Kasper. Very nice guy (funny thing is I am not a big fan of his as an announcer while he raves about him). He is pissed. :lol:

I can't even take devious pleasure that this angers Cubs fans.  Len Kasper is the worst.  Fuck ESPN.

At this point, the only explanation is that the 2016 Cubs are a monkey's paw.

I find Len Kasper to be an insufferable listen.  The tv voice of the team I hate the most now doing radio for my favorite team.  The 2020 offseason keeps getting more wonderful day by day.

How can anyone complain about Sox radio after what we had to listen to last decade?

It’s a fantastic hire by both 1000 and the White Sox. He’s a great broadcaster and to your point, Farmer and DJ were just not an enjoyable listen. 
 

The Sox have put together a very, VERY strong broadcasting lineup.

Really interested to hear what DJ is like without an old stalwart who dominated the broadcast, or a guy who never felt comfortable

Lol Len is not a national type. He belongs At a Single A affiliate in Mississippi. I always told cubs fans that the only people that like Lynn are diehard cubs fans and/or stat nerds. 
 

he doesnt fit the white Sox mold at all.

 

I used to see him at a bagel shopping glencoe and just cringe. He’s a real weirdo that appears to get a job if he sucks up to the right people and doesn’t cost a lot. 
 

the-only good thing is that this sticks it to the majority of cub fans who would enjoy a toaster announcing their game as they defecate on themselves after eating six bigmacs and wash it down with a gallon of Ronnie woo woo saliva.

If Bennetti goes I will be so happy.  The sooner he's out of here the better.

Re: Kasper, I like him, but he's more the national type than the typical Chicago-style homer.  On the radio I think he might work very well.

I like the guy who does the PBP for the Charlotte Knights games.  He would be an excellent replacement for Bennetti.  Also I liked the guy who did some of the Sox ST games last year.  I bet there are lots of good PBP guys in MiLB that can focus on the game of baseball properly.  Bennetti is such a dork.  And all his big calls suck.  I'm not going to rant about this but seriously, if he has any aspirations of increasing his national time, great, go do it, good riddance, GTFO of here already.

I agree on Bennett I. He is not as snarky and bad as he was but still not good. I love DJ so maybe put radio to tv and watch it that way. I hope benetti moves on to greener pastures.

His voice is so annoying, once Brenly left I put the games on mute. 

He sounds like Kermit the Frog.

Let's get Darvish from the Cubbies as well since they clearly don't value their assets.

I like the hire. Sox making big boy moves as an up and coming team should be.

I don't listen to Sox games very often, but I've liked Kasper when I've watched Cubs games (rooting against the Cubs...unless they were playing an AL Central rival).  I like him and think he'll be great as the play-by-play guy with DJ.

Dude, his last name is Benetti.

Exactly, Farmio and DJ were okay and Masur and DJ were kind of awkward together when I listened in last year. I would even go so far to get rid of DJ if he doesn’t pair well with Kasper. The radio booth hasn’t been great since Rooney and Farmer.

Agreed. Although when I read Kasper was moving to radio play by play I wondered if he would miss TV play by play, but maybe this is a new challenge he seeks. He was one of the few bright spots in the Cubs broadcasting lineup and I am thrilled he is in the White Sox both. Having him and Benetti at play by play is awesome. Now if they could lure some Cubs players like Quintana that would kick ass.

What’s funny is there is some truth to this?  Part of being a Cubs fan was the desire to be there when they finally ended the drought?  Now that losing may not be so lovable and with a highly likable / competing Sox club (ignoring TLR), the sides could really shift in Chicago if the Ricketts aren’t careful.

DJ always sounded more polished on national tv so maybe this is good.

That said I always liked DJ and was disappointed what a jerk he was to Masur. After the way hawk treated DJ it was pretty ridiculous he was acting the same way.
