    Re: Bob Brenly leaving Cubs

    I miss him already.

    So, where will he manage?

    Lateral move to Arizona. I'm really surprised knowing that his son is in the Cubs organization I figured he would stay. Wonder if they can get Stoney to come back; the only reason I didn't like Brenly at first was because I liked Steve Stone so much. If not I go with Hollandsworth or Kerry Wood. Not sure what Wood brings in as far as talent, but if he is good, you almost have to put him in there.

    Ugh, I hate this. Hopefully they replace him with someone like Doug Glanville and not Hollandsworth or Steve Stone.

    I never liked Brenly much. Thought he was kind of boring.

    Bummer! If Wood is good (see what I did there) and he wants to do it, it would make perfect sense. Gonna miss Brenly

    Re: Bob Brenly leaving Cubs

    I liked Bob, but am sure they'll get a solid replacement. He was really good most of the time, but sometimes it seemed like he was in the cone of silence. Was really interesting to hear his perspective as a former Major League manager. The time for change sentiment is mutual for me.

    Really like Len Kasper

    Re: Bob Brenly leaving Cubs

    He's no McCarver. Just tonight, he speculated that Matt Cain may have mistook a bunt sign for a bunt sign. Brenly just doesn't have that type of insight. Plus, he hates bunts.

    Really going to miss Bob. I disagree he does not have insight into the game.

    Re: Bob Brenly leaving Cubs

    I grew up listening to Steve Stone, would love to have him come back but I doubt that would happen.

    Re: Bob Brenly leaving Cubs

    I'm betting it will be one of these three people, in order:

    1. Todd Hollandsworth (IMO, he does great pre and post-game work on CSN and he is honest)

    2. Kerry Wood. 2 years ago when he came back for cheap, he said that he worked out a deal with Hendry that he would get a job with the Cubs organization when he retired. Sure, Hendry isn't back, but you know he will work for the Cubs in some way next year.

    3. Keith Moreland. Not a big name for those who don't pay attention. A few years ago, he would replace Bob Brenly during his vacation days. Now, he has replaced Ron Santo as the color analyst in the radio booth. He is great for the radio, so I'm not sure if they will take him out.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    I know he has some legal issues but I would love Gracie to do it.
