Tommy John would be an interesting pick....great connection to the White Sox, had a great career overall and some solid broadcasting experience.

Jamie Quirk? I guess Hank Allen is not available?

Tommy John was one of my favorite Sox players, ever. But he is pretty long-winded and boring.

He (TJ) called games for a Sox minor league affiliate for years but never made it up here. He and Ed makes two pitchers in one booth. I hope they mesh.

Farmer and Quirk are good buddies who both love N.D.!!! I think I remember Farmer saying that Quirk was recruited by N.D.!

TJ would be a brilliant choice. He knows the Sox organization having done work for the past several years with the Charlotte Knights.

That would be a great move. Does anyone have a link to the story?

No real strong feelings toward either but I would say that I like saying "Quirk".

I took baseball lessons from Tommy John's kid, who is the coolest guy ever, so this would be awesome. Last I heard, TJ was managing a minor-league affiliate of the Yankees (Staten Island maybe?), but maybe he's not anymore...I don't know as I haven't talked to TJ Jr. in a year or so. TJ landing this gig would be an upgrade for him anyway, I'd think.

Need I even say who I am pulling for?

A perfect match for the long-winded and often boring Farmio. Though I must admit that I have learned a lot about SoCal geography from Ed.
