      I loved Harry Carey. Yes, his years with the Cubs were often as a babbling old fool well past his sell by date, but his years with the Cards and the Sox pretty much gave him all the cred needed to justify his dotage on the North Side. To be fair, and perhaps to explain to those not quite ready to concede the above, he was more than ably assisted by one of the great color men in the game, Steve Stone.

      Opinions vary, and some judge the announcers and their partners in a different way than I do (I loved Hawk and Drysdale, for example—hard to get more controversial than to say one likes Harrelson). Nevertheless, I thought Carey was a breath of fresh air after suffering through years of Jack Brickhouse (and to be fair again, I only caught Brickhouse in his past-sell-by years).
