10/17 Brenly leaving Cubs
Cubs television analyst Bob Brenly informed WGN-TV he will not return to the team’s broadcast booth in 2013, and instead will seek another baseball broadcasting position. There is speculation Brenly will join the Diamondbacks’ TV broadcast team, replacing Mark Grace. Fans who may want Grace to replace Brenly should keep in mind that the former Cubs first baseman is facing DUI charges in November.
Said Brenly: “For the last eight years, I’ve had the unmitigated joy of going to Wrigley to work with one of the best play by play men in the game. I had as much fun as you could have in the last eight years. I have nothing negative to say. It was great.”
