Who should replace Brenly?

As the news broke that Bob Brenly would be leaving the Cubs' TV booth, the next question on everybody's mind was -- who will replace him?

It's a valid question, and considering the popularity of the Cubs across the nation, it figures to be a very desirable job.

We took to twitter to ask our followers who the best fit for Len Kasper's sidekick would be.

We got back a variety of answers, including Jeff Garlin and Bill Murray, two of the funniest Cubs fans in existence. One person even suggest Sammy Sosa.

Some serious suggestions included Rick Sutcliffe, Kerry Wood, Ryne Sandberg, Doug Glanville, Mark Grace, Steve Stone and Dan Plesac.

We can immediately remove Sandberg from that list, as the Hall of Famer has made it very clear he has his targets set on managing at the big-league level. Wood just retired this year and said he wanted to spend time with this family, so it'd be hard to see him go back on that and show up at the ballpark for 162 days next year.

Sutcliffe and Glanville may be the initial front-runners, as both have Cubs ties and have worked in the field before. Glanville is a consultant with ESPN, but may be available for the right price. Grace also has a very strong history with the Cubs, but he parted ways with the Diamondbacks after a DUI arrest this summer, so his status as a color commentator is up in the air right now.

Plesac and Stone also have links to the North Siders, but currently have other positions elsewhere in baseball, Stone as the color guy to Hawk Harrelson on the South Side and Plesac as an MLBNetwork analyst.

Todd Hollandsworth, co-host of Cubs PGL here at CSN, may also be in the mix as his name has been thrown out as well.

Who do you want to see replace Brenly in the booth? Vote in the poll above.
