My first reaction to the news was that Sinclair (and the Ricketts) must be absolutely miserable people to work for, and good on Len for getting the heck out of there. And if it's that he wants to get back to calling play-by-play on radio, that's a win for radio, in my book, too. I do wonder if he'll also pick up some occasional national TV work.
The "Marquee" network's suit mandate was a really dumb idea from some Sinclair suits trying to look "professional" but just showing their own ineptitude. Who knows how many other asinine directives like the suit requirement Len and JD were dealing with behind the scenes. And leave it to the Cubs to launch their own network at pretty much the worst possible time with the dumbest possible television partner. $6.25 A MONTH for this crap network! Ridiculous.
