Oh God no...not that. Worst broadcaster ever. Worst two years of baseball broadcasting I have ever heard or been a part of.

I swear, if I hear him on the air, I am done with this organization.

I'm already on the fence with this organization (why did I even attempt to become a White Sox fan after 2009? Huge regrets... and notice this ain't in teal).

A second class minor league organization from top the bottom, all the way, and hiring Singleton back after his last stint would be a huge mistake. Seriously.

I don't even know what to say right about this...

As for my previous comment, I shouldn't question my fandom. I realize I can delete that post, but I'm leaving it up because it's somewhat how I feel.

I'm not questioning my fandom persay, but I guess I'm just highly frustrated.

I stopped watching baseball and slowly fell out of sports after 2004. When I was bored one summer night in 2009 after starting my new day job, I watched a White Sox game (Cubs had played that afternoon), and it just started from there. No bandwagoning... both teams were actually competing for 1st place at that time.

Since then, it just feels like the Sox have done a lot of silly 2nd class type of things, and with the added Ozzie nonsense, I can say my time as a Sox fan is really no different than when I was a Cubs fan (from 1992 to 2004).

Thank you for allowing me to vent my frustrations.

I've always liked Singleton, and he's really improved while working for the MLB Network.

I'd prefer him over Stone, to be honest.

Well, at least you're handling this as yet non-story logically.

He's not coming back to work in the booth. He's coming into town for something. I think he may hang out occassionally with the tweeter.

He may come across as high pitched if he does that.

Two guys I can't stand broadcasting the Sox: Singleton and DJ. One left (hopefully won't be back). Wish the other would leave too! I really think broadcasters play a crucial part in the excitement around a team. If fans like listening to/watching games, it helps with that positive image.

I heard a commercial on the radio for some Sox / Cubs celebrity softball game for some charity or foundation. They said Frank Thomas and Derek Lee would both be there. Maybe Singleton is coming back for this event, and won't be polluting the airwaves?

DJ has grown a little bit on me on the radio. I think both guys, Farmer and DJ, have tightened up their broadcasting of the actual game after some criticism last year. DJ's likeable enough to keep around. I guess they may not have the talent of other teams, but Farmer and DJ seem like buddies and get along well enough, so it is sort of relaxing to listen to them. There is no tension that you sometimes here on the tv side.

Singleton has improved a lot on the radio too. I catch him occassionally on the Sunday night game, and he sounds like a different person. He was brutal with the Sox in 2007.

Yep, because that is how much I dislike him and an even larger indicator of how much I trust this organization right now.
