12/4 Cubs radio gig

Two former Cubs players are apparently the top candidates for the job as color analyst on WGN Radio broadcasts. Todd Hollandsworth and Ron Coomer are the favorites for the job, according to a source. The Cubs have been searching for a partner for play by play man Pat Hughes after Keith Moreland announced he was leaving. A decision was expected to be finalized next week during the Winter Meetings, which begin Monday in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The source said there are other candidates being considered.

Hollandsworth, 40, played for the Cubs from 2004-05, and has done pre and post-game analysis for Comcast SportsNet Chicago since 2009. Coomer, 47, who grew up in Lockport, Ill., played for the Cubs in 2001. He was an analyst for Fox Sports North, the primary television broadcaster for the Twins.

The Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, Ill.) reported Coomer as a candidate last month. Media critic Robert Feder wrote Wednesday that Coomer and Hollandsworth were finalists.

Where is Steve Stone?

Please let it not be Hollandsworth.

When is Pat Hughes going to be replaced?

Pat Hughes is an outstanding baseball announcer. Hollandsworth and Hughes would make a superior team announcing the games for the next 15-years!!!

He is if one likes homers. Give me even-handed broadcasters any day of the week, and twice on Sundays.
