I haven't heard his name mentioned, but I thought Al Leiter did a good job the few times I've seen him.

I liked Stone and I liked Brenly, color or play by play, I even stomached Chip.  I guess in comparison to Harrelson...

I voted "other" because I want them to bring back Joe Carter!

An awful team (which the Cubs will be for at least two more seasons) deserves an awful announcer too.  It'll give the fans something else to complain about besides the play on the field.  Misery loves company.  Joe Carter in the booth may actually get JBN back posting again.  ;D

Actually, the worse the team is, the better the broadcasters should be.

Viewers need a reason to watch.

From Bruce Levine's chat:


I believe Karros, Moreland, Hollandsworth, Gary Matthews and Dan Plesac will get consideration. Not sure how limited some of them are due to other contracts. But I think all of those names bring something positive to the table.

[/size]I always liked Gary Matthews but the Cubs can do way better for this.  Same with Moreland. I hope (and suspect) that Levine is speaking off the top of his head.[/color]

I would also like for all of the candidates to punch Tim Mccarver in the head.

I'll try again.  From Bruce Levine's chat:

I was kinda fond of Gary Matthews, the player, but the Cubs can do a lot better for a color guy. Same, to some extent, as to Moreland.  I imagine (and hope) Levine was just guessing.

I wonder if Al Hrabowski would move?

Maybe the Cubs let Len go solo like Vin Scully
