Former Cub Keith Moreland is leaving his job as a color analyst for the team on WGN radio broadcasts,.
Well, the 2012 baseball season in Chicago has come to an end. For some, mercifully. For others, disappointingly.
Those nice things, though, do not deserve a retiring of his number, a topic that’s been bandied about since people started to assume this year was Wood’s swan song.
It will be 46 degrees and rainy when Cubs take to the mound for their home opener at Wrigley Field, but the conditions aren’t putting a damper on the buzz at the Friendly Confines.
Not that long ago, Keith Moreland was announced as the new Cubs broadcaster. Though his job is replacing Ron Santo, he wants to make it clear he is not replacing the man Ron Santos was.
On Wednesday, the Chicago Cubs and WGN announced that former Cub Keith Moreland would replace the late Ron Santo during the Cubs’ radio broadcasts.
Within a few days or so, we will know which former Cub will partner with Pat Hughes to call Cubs games on the radio.
Santa isn’t the only one making a list and checking it twice this week. The Chicago Cubs are, too, as their search for an analyst to replace the late Ron Santo in the team’s radio booth is now underway.
