Don't Be Surprised if the new WGN Radio analyst is a short-timer. Hint: Think Kerry Wood.

I first heard this discussed briefly yesterday on 670 "The Score", as Boers and Bernstein quoted "sources who are in a position to know".  While I found the subject interesting, I suddenly gave the potential story more credence this morning, when I saw it also mentioned by Bruce Levine.  In a nutshell, Kerry Wood was absolutely overwhelmed by the outpouring of grief and affection for Ron Santo during the public memorial service.  In addition to taking a huge hometown discount to come home to Chicago, he and Hendry apparently also discussed potential job opportunities that might keep Kerry with the Cubs for the long-term, especially now that he and his family are making Chicago their permanent home.  Do not discount the possibility that Kerry will end up in the WGN Radio booth at some point.  Apparently, it's already been discussed if these reports are true, and that would also mean that whomever is hired to fill the current analyst role may not be the big name former Cub we all are expecting.  As for what direction they go in for the immediate future, who knows?  But at the very least, it makes for some intersting food for thought on an otherwise cold and dreary winter day here in the city.  Hope to see some of you at the Cubs Convention tomorrow.  Have a great weekend, everyone.
