Len Kasper Interview

Written by , Posted in General

Yesterday I had the privilege of interviewing the Cubs play by play man, Len Kasper. He has taken a lot of heat in his first year from the fans for not being good. I have to say that I disagree with them. I have enjoyed Len and Bob from the beginning. They keep me entertained during the game, which is their primary role as TV guys. Sometimes I think that people miss that. They are not there to be your eyes, they are there to make the TV time fun. For me, they have done that. The interview went smooth, […]

Prior for Tejada?

Written by , Posted in General

Rotoworld reports that the Cubs and Orioles have discussed a swap that would send Mark Prior to Baltimore for Miguel Tejada.
