CHIP GETS RIPPED

2

Wow. Richard Sandomir lambastes former Cubs announcer Chip Caray over his performance in the ALDS between the Tribe and the Yanks.

His play-by-play of the Yankees’ 8-4 win in Game 3 on Sunday night was packed with errors and silly strategy, enough to give me agita.

Caray’s skein of faux pas in Game 3, as well as during Game 2, befogged his announcing like the insects that swarmed Joba Chamberlain on Friday night.

Here are some questions to ponder through the rest of Caray’s work this postseason. Why isn’t he better prepared? If his producer, Jeff Gowen, is listening to what he is saying, why isn’t Caray improving?

Click the link to see the various reasons Sandomir takes Caray to task. Caray really grew on me over the years and most Cubs fans agree he improved considerably from his dreadful beginnings in Chicago. Having Joe Carter didn’t help. Having Steve Stone did. I think the article overdoes it a bit, but it’s still surprising to read about Caray making so many goofs.

    Chip grew on me as well through the years. He’s FAR better than Len Kaspar. His voice sounds like Kermit the Frog trying to be a sports announcer. Just awful.

    Len and Bob had a rough start, as expected but they are growing on me too. Of course, winning seasons always make the announcing more palatable (see: White Sox, Chicago).
