Bob Brenly is the color commentator for the Cubs on WGN, Comcast SportsNet, WCIU, and possibly six other networks. Much like the fans, Brenly sounds like man exhausted of watching the Cubs but his clear dismay didn’t prevent him from making the following succinctly accurate assessment of the club.

He’s going to express his opinion, he’s going to be emotional about it when he does it … I just think it’s a guy who is frustrated with the way the season has gone, he’s frustrated with the way his teammates have approach their daily business … For me, it’s time. It’s about time that somebody stood up and said ‘Enough is enough. I’m tired of watching this.’”
