Default Chimp on the way out?

Mack, Jurko , and Harry were discussing this yesterday, but I haven't seen it elsewhere. Is Chip Caray really on the way out as the Cubs' play-by-play man.

The last I heard, a week or two ago, he and WGN and/or the Cubs were still negotiating. The rumor I heard was that Steve Stone want him out.

The Tribune has to notify him of his status for next year by June 30. It would be nice for the bad news to come on the heels of a Sox sweep.

Wow that sounds familiar. Sounds like Harry with Josh Lewin!

If you don't here anything, he is gone. But if he is staying they will make an announcement.

If he reverts back to his true calling as a house painter or kiddie pool lifeguard or whatever, I'm sure they'll find a way to blame the Sox.

That means I can cross off one item from my list of over a million things I despise about this faux-major-league team!

Josh Lewin is Hebrew for Chip Caray.

And to think...a couple of years ago, I covered a Cubs game, and wore my Sox cap in the Cubs' locker room. I saw Chip Caray in there, and introduced myself. After some idle chit chat, I told him I was a Sox fan. He said, "We'll convert you sooner or later."

Can't help but laugh. Looks like he'll be "swung on and belted" out of town. God forbid he comes to the South Side. Harry, as much as hated Reinsdorf, would flip in his grave.

Where's Skip Caray when you need him?
