Cubs Radio Analyst Breakdown: Dave Otto VS Keith Moreland

According to multiple sources, the Cubs are down to two for their new radio color guy. Either Dave Otto or Keith Moreland will join Pat Hughes in the booth in 2011.

With the first Spring Training broadcast only 25 days away, the announcement will have to made soon. Most likely, WGN Radio and the Cubs would like to give whoever gets the job a chance to prepare for the season before the season starts. I would expect this to be over with in the next two weeks.

  1. Otto will be fine as long as he leave, "life and separate" behind.

  2. Dave Otto! He works very well with Pat Hughes and has a lot of enthusiasm and knowledge of the game. It shows in his interviews. Go Cubs! Mike Cecil

  3. Keith Moreland?? 70% voted for Dave Otto. Another bad decision by the Cubs! I think I will go with Cardinal games on my iPhone this year! Thank goodness there's an APP for that!
