Now that we know where the White Sox are going, one matter to be resolved is who will be the host for the White Sox pregame and postgame shows?

I'd give J. Hood the nod...

Oh, definatly Mike Murphy. Yeah, Jay Hood might be good, but I honestly can't think of anyone else there. Maybe they'll "import" someone ?

Wouldn't Brian still do it? He's employed by the Sox not ESPN right?

The thought of that guy choking on Sox talk 162x a year = comedy gold.

Nope. Pre and post hosts are employed by the station.

How about Lawrence Holmes? Or Holmes and Hood, they're both Sox fans. I hope they still keep pre and post game shows for that matter...

I feel bad for Bryan. I think his heart is in the right place and he's definitely improved since the season started, but overall I don't find the post game show very enjoyable.

What kills me is how many times he says "Chicago White Sox" when he could very easily say "the Sox". It just not very comfortable. Wills was a very comfortable listen. He talked in a very conversational manner and just had a more pleasing radio voice.

J. Hood or Holmes would be fine. I'll take Holmes over J. Hood.

Tough break for Bryan.

Bryan seems like a nice guy, but I honestly haven't listened to one of his postgame shows since April. As soon as the game is over, I just turn off the tv/radio.

I thought I was the only one who noticed that. He always, sometimes repeatedly in the same sentence, says "The Chicago White Sox," instead of just "the White Sox" or "the Sox." It's an annoyance to me too.

Reminds me of a comedian I heard one time doing a riff on famous names. He asked why it was that he always saw references to "Bozo The Clown." Is there some concern that we might get him confused with "Bozo The Pope" or "Bozo The District Attorney?" Just calling him "Bozo" makes it pretty clear who they're talking about. Likewise on a pre- and post-game White Sox baseball broadcast, it should be pretty clear that if one refers to "the Sox," the listeners will know who's being referenced.

Dolgin - "Yesterday the Chicago White Sox scored 10 Chicago White Sox runners in the 6th inning of a Chicago White Sox baseball game at US Cellular Field to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks for a final score of: the Chicago White Sox 12 - the Arizona Diamondbacks 6. So the Chicago White Sox salvaged the last game of the series, meaning the Chicago White Sox have not been swept by another non-Chicago White Sox team." Or something like that. Dolgin is odd.

Dolgin's OK, he just doesn't always seem to know when to hang up on people. I remember, a month or so ago, he let a very inebriated caller spend nearly TEN MINUTES of airtime talking about how great Wrigley is. Brian tried his best to trip the guy up and convince him to see a game at the Cell, but it was like reasoning with a...um...drunk Cub fan. It was funny for a minute, but Brian just kept letting the guy talk and talk and talk. He is improving, though.

But what I wouldn't give to hear Dolgin refer to a caller as a "drillrod".

Yup. That sounds about right.

Not to beat up on Bryan though. Apart from that "Chicago White Sox" quirk, I think he does a pretty good job. If it turns out that he doesn't get the WSCR gig after the move, it really is a tough break.

BTW, my sons and I got a Bryan Dolgin bobblehead doll (no, I'm not kidding) at a Joliet Jackhammers game a few weeks ago. Why on Earth they did that, especially after he doesn't work there anymore, is a mystery to me. But the bobblehead makes a nice, if surreal, addition to my small collection of baseball swag. :cool:

I agree that there is a lot of circular logic going on during Dolgin's postgame show. It's as if he's broadcasting assuming everyone just tuned in 2 seconds ago, so he feels the need to constantly refresh peoples' memories of what happened during the game.

The sign of a great broadcaster is that you forget that the person is speaking to a large group of listeners. Wills was excellent at just delivering.

I am sorry for the passionless Bryan losing the gig, but the answer is Holmes (my dear Watson.) He has passion, radio skills, is a fan of the right team, and needs a permanent slot on the station.

Ever considered that it may be part of an effort to solidify public perception of the White Sox as Chicago's team?

I highly doubt that it's conscious with him. And if it is and the reason is as you state, it's a real reach.

Intentional or not, it's very annoying.

As I said before, I think Bryan is well prepared and cares about the team, it's just not a comfortable listen.

No, I don't think that's it. I think he just sees it as the professional thing to call the team by its full name. Because he isn't comfortable in his gig yet, he doesn't know when he can loosen up and call them "the Sox", or "we", or "the guys" or some other adjective. I don't mind Dolgin but sometimes it's very uncomfortable listening to him.

They're only good after the Bears lose, which means they're good after most Bears games. Unfortunately, the Sox aren't complete losers unlike Chicago's pathetic excuse for an NFL team. Besides, Doug and OB are worthless unless they are talking about the horrible lickings they took with all those miserable late 60's-early 70's Bears...

Dolgin drives me nuts every time he says Jared's, the Galleria of "Jew-La-Ry." They sell jewels, not jewlas. Other than that, he's ok. I'd rather see him come on over to the score with the Sox as all of their current hosts are sorta retarded. Especially Hood, there is no way a postgame show is going to fly if you aren't allowed to take a shot at the sCrubs. What kind of Sox fan gets upset when you badmouth the northsiders, anyway?

She can be clueless, too. She once explained to a caller that the cutter breaks in the opposite direction as a curve or slider, when we all know it breaks in the same direction, but less. Plus she and Laurence is one host too many. Anyone chosen will be compared to Willsy and thus they will be at a big disadvantage before they start.

Telander quit on the spur of the moment. That's their story and they're sticking to it. IMHO Hood belongs on a regular show with a co-host where his comedic talents can be fully utilized, not on pre-post. Holmes is the man, solo.

I totally agree. I have been a long time scorehead and I really belive the talents of the one JHood have repeatedly been kicked aside by Score Management. JHood definatly belongs on a regular show as a headliner. I really enjoyed the Me and Z show with Holmes. I also like the fact that he has always made it very clear that he is a diehard sox fan and he makes that very clear everytime baseball in this town is brought up.
