Boo Freaking Hoo

So TBS has some odd choices for their playoff broadcasts and have left Skip Caray off the list. Caray cries about it and admits that it hurt his feelings. Skip, I’m sorry to tell you that you’re like most of America in that your opinion of your work is obviously higher than your employer’s. Get over it.

But it doesn’t end there. Skip’s son, Chip, was chosen for the team! So Skip is happy for Chip, right? Maybe not – his reaction isn’t mentioned in the article. Strange.

I think it’s telling, though, that Caray’s work was significantly reduced by TBS this year. Maybe that should have been a hint.

On a bright note for us Sox fans, Don Orsillo was chosen by TBS, so we get the smooth stylings of DO in October. It makes you wonder when Jerry Remy will finally replace Joe Morgan on ESPN. It couldn’t come soon enough.
