    Thom is not going to give up his NFL gig. He does much better in Football than he does Baseball.

    Amen brother. Thom is my least favorite Reds announcer of my lifetime.

    Bring back Jim Kelch, he did a great job and very professional.

    I would love for Kappes to get the gig one day. Terrific person and a GREAT baseball mind.

    Oh, wouldn't it be nice if Marty's predecessor would replace him.

    The Al Michaels. Loved him back in the day with the Reds.

    Tony Pike is really good on the radio, I love the show he does at noon on ESPN radio, but I don't think he would be a candidate any time soon to be the play-by-play guy.

    For what it's worth, I've heard several times that the Reds would be Dan Hoard's dream job. He loves doing baseball, and he's been out of it since his days in Pawtucket at the AAA level.
    Like someone mentioned, there's other options already within the Reds organization with Thrall from Pensacola as well as the Dragons' longtime voice. Both are qualified candidates, although I think Hoard has as good of a shot as any to come on full-time.

    I didn't realize until this afternoon listening to Marty's final signoff that Tommy Thrall had officially been brought on to replace Brennaman, calling things from the booth alongside Jeff Brantley for 2020.

    It was back before the season ever started that the decision was made. Don't remember if it was in spring training, or just before it, though.

    I think it was good to have him a part of this last season of Marty. Should make for a more smoother transition to next year, when he's full time. Granted, we're still going to miss Marty. But, it's not like we haven't had games already this year, where Marty wasn't on them and Tommy was.
