A former basketball announcer who despite 5 years of doing play-by-play for the Cubs still knows little about baseball.
The current crop of Cubs announcers, Len Kasper and Bob Brenley, are horribly lame and forgettable.
Carey I kinda liked, he at least had some chemistry w Stone.
Kasper reminds me a lot of Chip and he is OK. Gotta give him some more time, but right now they seem like they are un affiliated network guys who just happen to do the Cub games every day. Why the Cubs couldn't stick with someone w a Chicago connection I don't get.
As for Bob "Climb the ladder" ten times a game Brenly, he can go anytime he pleases.
