In fairness to Brenly he lasted eight years with the Cubs, that's not exactly "jumping ship" is it? I have no problem with the man wanting to work closer to home if the opportunity arises especially since he was the manager at Arizona when they won the World Series.
That's a closer connection to a franchise certainly than just calling the games for a team you never played or managed for is it?
