If nothing else, let him do a 3-minute pretaped spot at the end of some of the Thursday shows in the vein of the curmudgeon philosopher type, similar to how Andy Rooney used to wrap up 60 minutes. Those who cannot separate his politics and his baseball knowledge are missing out, because he has incredible baseball knowledge.

@nomoregroundhogs That Royals-Indians coverage was completely unwatchable. I didn't catch who the announcer was but he was working solo and it was painful. I had flipped it on late to watch a new team (I usually watch Dodgers, D-Backs, Padres, or Mariners) and have to change it after an inning and a half.

Len Kasper usually broadcasts a game each year from the bleachers, and from that same spot since it's been in place. It works out well and evokes just a little bit of Harry.
What's disappointing was all the references to Harry, and none regarding Jack Brickhouse. Jack had his issues, but he broadcast Cubs games for much longer than Harry.

If he can make it half as hokey as Dick Enberg's Sports Challenge while still funny, it'll be a smashing success.

Ditka forgot that he played for the Eagles as well.

@bwatson1002 @BlatantHomerism There are a fair amount of shows available for purchase with a 1-2 day delay on iTunes/Amazon. Series shows often go for $25-$49 if you are willing to buy the entire season at once.

It's good for consumers because inefficient and undeserving businesses are removed from the marketplace.
@Geneseo98 Except that many of the marginal networks would either go out of business, or switch to a different streaming delivery model.
I unbundled 10 months ago - dropped all the TV parts, just kept the internet. I have access to another account when I really want to watch something streaming which requires a Comcast login connected to a TV account, and I occasionally head to a sports bar on a Saturday afternoon for lunch and some college football or pro baseball, and I have MLB At Bat for out of town radio feeds.
Is it perfect? No. Would I pay for MLB.TV if it included local market games? Yes. But I figure that I've cut my costs by over 40%, and I don't miss Sportscenter at all.
I'd be happier with just Reege and one guest host per week, a la Mike Douglas. But this format makes me think that Reege will only be on full time until about November 1, and then you'll start seeing him taking weeks off left and right until he's only on two or three times a month via satellite.

Did Brent run the truck and put Ms. Webb up on the screen? I don't think so. The truck put her on the screen, so Brent probably figured he was supposed to say something.

News feeds give me most of the key national stories, and I TiVo PTI to get a little more depth, and maybe watch a little MLB Network. ESPN SC/News comes on when I'm sleepy, since it doesn't really matter if I fall asleep in the middle of Herm Edwards' third Coors Cold Hard Fact.
