    Tracy Jones Makes On Air Offer To Reds

    I recorded Tracy Jones yesterday. I just heard the end of his show. He said he is putting his name out there. Before signing off he said he would take a three year contract at $1500 a game to announce with Marty.

    Let's just hope they don't accept.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Not enough! Jones would have to give me $3000 a game to listen to him.

    I just did the math, not including spring training, that's $243,000 to be the Reds announcer. Not a bad deal for him. For us, no deal.

    Tracy Jones thinks very highly of himself, doesn't he?
    Too bad he is in the minority

    I'll make an offer to the Reds also and I'll come in at a lower price than that.

    I'm quite happy that he is in the minority. Otherwise, there might be a chance the Reds would accept his offer.

    And while you can watch tv with the sound turned off, it's harder to listen to the radio with the sound turned off.

    Any chance of Paul O'Neil? He sounded great doing Yankee games and, he played the game.

    He said earlier this year that Steve is getting between $1250 - $1500 a game. I like Tracey and I hope he is in the booth with Marty next year. I know I am in the minority, but I don't care.

    He would be a good choice too. Heck, I played the game too, just not at the Major League level! (it ended after a brief stint in college!)

    Why don't you guys like the tracer? I'd love it if he got the job. I don't really care if his opinions are right or not, at least he's entertaining. That's all I want. You never learn anything interesting anyway from a radio broadcast.

    I personally wish Rod got the job. I'd listen to every game if they signed him.

    Everytime Marty would ask Rod a question, Rod would of course respond......"WEELLLL"


    I would like to see Tracy get the job also. We would get to hear him 6-7 days a week instead of 2-3.

    And this is positive how?

    I'll take $500/game to work with Marty - and Tracy can pay me $1500 to listen to me.

    I'll do it for free...too bad the previous regime isn't still here or I'd be a front runner for sure.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but they've already said Steve is definitely not coming back. There's a thread on here if you want more details.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
