a refreshingly honest 'help-wanted ad' on the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America website. One excerpt states, "Candidates should possess quick reflexes and major-market-caliber announcing skills, be thick-skinned and coachable. You’ll be replacing an iconic, 19-year predecessor in America’s most captivated sports media market, so be prepared for a high level of scrutiny. This is not an entry-level position, and only the best should apply." No kidding! Rumors of tension between and among the three hosts have flourished for some time, so it's probably in everybody's best interest that a new formula take hold. It will be interesting to see if the traditionally high ratings for WEEI in this time slot are maintained with the new host.
the team will be re-naming U.S. Cellular Field as Guaranteed Rate Field. Oh, that's a big improvement, Jerry! Going from a cut-rate wireless company to a mortgage broker. Nice upgrade! Of course, if Reinsdorf weren't so cash-strapped, he could have kept the original name of the park—New Comiskey Park (or Co-minsky as President Obama likes to call it). Anyway, be thankful for small things.

shows that the Red Sox have jumped up three spots this week to the #6 overall position on the list. The Cubbies stay in the #1 spot, followed by the Nationals, Indians and Blue Jays. And, once again this week, the Rangers round out the Top Five. The Red Sox come in with an average score of 5.6—and were placed as high as 5th by some reviewers. The Orioles are now two slots behind Boston at #8, while both the Giants and Dodgers have also fallen behind the Red Sox in this week's rankings. The Bronx Embalmers dropped one spot, and are comfortably ensconced in the number seventeen position. The Twinkies are still viewed as the worst team in the American League (#29 overall).You can see all the Week Twenty-One rankings HERE.
