Yep. I think JR will definitely be moving the Sox to The Score when his current sweet deal is over. The shift in the Score's attitude on the Sox was almost instantaneous. I even heard a Frank Thomas plug for one of the shows last night.

ESPN has accomplished their goal, but JR still likely won't walk away from the money ESPN owes the Sox.

I think it's safe to conclude JR is considering the Score for the next radio broadcast deal.

ESPN really dropped the ball on this one. It would be different if that nameless idiot who writes for the SunTimes was a radio talent, but he sucks. What a waste.

Like I was saying in another thread, this JR/JM war is really becoming an intriguing story. If ESPN loses the White Sox b/c of the Moron's show it would be a disaster for the station. Although Moronotti is in a strong position (three different media outlets to spread his message of White Sox hate) I would not bet against Reinsdorf in this battle. For all of JR's faults as an owner of a sports franchise, he is a shrewd businessman and not a self-made multi-millionaire for no reason...

Here's the real question: if Sox move to Score after next season will Dave Wills still have a job? Everyone knows how vocal his hatred is towards the Cubs. Someone from the high offices of the Tribune wil probably prevent him from hosting post games shows.

What is the relationship betweem the Tribune and the Score?

Hey with the attitude of Wills, there's no way the Sox don't hire him for some kind of broadcast job.

The Tribune has no affiliation with the Score. If the Cubs have super fanatic Mike Murphy always hyping the Cubs, they shouldn't have any problem with Wills doing the same for the Sox.

Is Dave Wills a Sox employee? I think not. I think he is an ESPN1000 employee. I would be interested to see if he followed the Sox or not.

I'm sure he'd prefer to go where the Sox go, but he may have a contract with ESPN that locks him in ...

Yep. The Score understood what Moron's hiring meant to the White Sox, and they recognized an opportunity to sneak in and grab that contract (perhaps below market value, if JR's pissed enough).

Let's not overlook the fact that the Bulls come with the Sox wherever they go. I know the Bulls of 2004 aren't the Bulls of 1998, but that name still carries a lot of cache -- easily the most prestigious team in sports to miss the playoffs five years in a row. I gotta think the Score is salivating over the Sox/Bulls contract, and they're gonna do whatever they can to get into Jerry's good graces in the coming months, which can only be a good thing for us.

Good point. I really hope they go to the Score. Even though I'm not that much a fan of the station anymore(horrible personalities, too many commercials), the watts that come out of that station would be a boon for the Sox.
