    I wasn't aware the old 5-tool, 12-stepper was on XM.

    I don't have XM, but I always thought he was a great at talking baseball as a media guy. Remember when he was GM, and at Redsfest he'd let random people from the crowd suggest trades and then comment on them? Even if he was just giving BS reasons for/against, it was an interesting feature that no other GM would dare to do.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Yes, he's got a good line of bull- just like Steve Phillips.

    Now that I think about it, I can see old Leatherpants replacing Phillips on ESPN. Jimmie would love the smorgasbord there...

    I listened to JimBo on XM several times recently. He sounds like he's been doing it for years. He sounds very good, very knowledgeable. I agreed with everything he said. lol

    IMO, he might be a slimeball, but he's got a future in broadcasting.

    he might be a slimeball, so he's got a future in broadcasting.
