Casper's consider one of the best in the business. He's generally well liked by fans and joined the Cups after doing play by play for the Florida Marlins. Now, sources report that it was KASPER who wanted to make the shift from TV to radio. He has made it no secret that he's always wanted to call world Syriza and he may see the socks as the team that could make that happen for him. Casper will become the permanent replacement for a long time. Socks. Voice at farmer who passed away April 1st. Now word is, uh, That Fox Sports is Chris Myers will be the one to replace Casper for the Cubs. Myers has been with the with Fox sports Rather for 22 years.
