Looks Like a Done Deal
No one is talking, but everyone is reporting. That sure seems like code for, "Bob Brenly, Cubs Broadcast Analyst."
This is great news. A guy who not only is a "tell it like it is" broadcaster, but who has a history here. And even better, he won't shy away from criticizing the team when it needs to be criticized as he will have the clout behind him to back up his comments. If Barry Rozner is right, Brenly will be making right about 7 figures per year for four years. Think about this: At the end of the 2005 season, the Cubs will owe Dusty Baker $4 million over the remainder of his contract. The Cubs will owe Brenly $3 million.
Brenly could be the Cubs' manager come 2006 or 2007. This will be delicious to watch. And Bob will be a pleasure to listen to.
Oh, and make sure you read the last line of the article. What do we know about the Cubs and leaks in the paper?
No cocker spaniel jokes, please.
