That's a closer connection to a franchise certainly than just calling the games for a team you never played or managed for is it?

If Brenly goes to the Rockies like a lot of reports have him doing, I don't see how you can consider him "jumping ship."

He lives in Colorado
He managed the Rockies to a World Series Championship

Two HUGE pluses for "heading home" in my book.

Although it wouldn't surprise me one bit for ol' JonnyCakes to join a national broadcast team. Fox/ESPN/TBS all could use his talents.
