I have finally had the chance to hear Jason Benetti on the Sox broadcast last night. Just wanted to say, he’s excellent! I’m so glad you hired him and I really look forward to hearing him going forward. I cut the cable cord last fall and the only thing I really miss is the White Sox games – but I won’t go back to cable. The more games you can get on WPWR or WGN, the better.
