    Bernstein: Cubs Broadcast Will Be Better Without Santo

    Bernstein: Cubs Broadcast Will Be Better Without Santo CBS Chicago

    Not a fan of that article at all, but thought I'd throw it out there.

    I didn't listen to the Cubs games with Pat and Ron for details on the game. I listed for the entertainment that included notes about the Cubs game.

    Pathetic article. Way to point out the obvious, Ron wasn't one for giving great details/insight on the game. Cubs fans listened because they loved listening to the guy pour out his heart for the team.

    Ron's passion for all things cubs was contagious.

    Wrong, bucko. The broadcasts will be more boring. Ron covered up for the losing. He was entertaining.

    All Boers and Berstein do is rile up their audience and this article will help do that. He will get the listeners and follow the Rush Limbaugh way of doing it.

    I usually avoided 670 for the hosts there.

    EDIT: Just scanned the article. No need for this crap. Just sounds like spitting on a man's grave.

    Listen to the Score 670 late at night. Les Grobstein is great. Been around forever and very level headed. A great historian of Chicago sports.

    Re: Bernstein: Cubs Broadcast Will Be Better Without Santo

    I'm not hating on Ron, I loved him too, but even by his low standard his broadcasting was slipping. He was never prepared, rarely aware and wasn't giving much insight on the game at hand. I'm not upset that we are getting a new radio team, but it's too bad that we had to lose Ron to get it.

    Bernstein isn't wrong, he's just being overly harsh. Not surprising if you have ever heard the show. If he had posted his thoughts on Steve Alford he would be a board hero.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    And as for the broadcasts, Pat Hughes is good enough to carry a broadcast on his own, Ron was there for the entertainment aspect of it. I spend a lot of nights out in my garage listening to the radio calls of Cubs games during the summer.....I'm worried that the new broadcast team won't be able to keep me entertained as well as Pat and Ron always could.

    Re: Bernstein: Cubs Broadcast Will Be Better Without Santo

    Ron made up for a lot of what people miss in Harry calling games with Steve Stone on TV. Stoney was a great technical guy to listen to as is Pat. I wonder if Bernstein would have the guts to write an article like this about Harry too.

    We have a winner for Post of the Thread. I don't know how anyone could pay that close of attention to a radio broadcast for baseball, when the season is 162 games long. I had every game on in my office, only to keep me and my students entertained during the day. Did I care if the Cubs won, sure, as do all fans. Did I care that I could go 2-3 innings without Ron talking about the game, nope, because he was keeping me entertained.

    Especially Bernstein. That guy is like Matty P on steroids and HGH. Every time a caller disagrees with them he treats them like they are morons and everytime a guest or his cohost disagrees he cannot let it go how "stupid he thinks they are" and how wrong they are. He generally doesn't even like it if Boers or the producer brings up a topic to discuss, mainly because it wasn't his ideas.

    The Grobber definitely knows his Chicago sports history but his show isn't much to listen to. He lets moron callers ramble for minutes on end (I understand not many people are chomping at the bit to call in at 3 in the morning but still) and he really is just a meatball chicago fan. He seems to remember every detail of every game from 40 years ago, though.
