Add Dan Plesac into Cubs announcer mix

(MCT) — SAN FRANCISCO — The vacant analyst job on Cubs’ television is proving to be a sought-after job and one of those who appears interested is former Cubs pitcher Dan Plesac.

A Cubs’ source says that the team knows of his possible, perhaps strong, interest. But he is in a similar position as Rick Sutcliffe — already under contract.

Sutcliffe, who has said he would be interested in talking about replacing Bob Brenly on WGN-Ch. 9 and Comcast Sportsnet, works for ESPN. Plesac is in the first year of a multi-year contract with MLB Network.

Plesac is working the World Series but said he would rather not discuss the Cubs’ opening. But he certainly would have to be intrigued with the possibility of returning “home.” He not only pitched for the Cubs in 1993-94 but worked as an analyst at Comcast and still lives near where he grew up in Crown Point, Ind.

Brenly’s departure has left a void in what is considered one of the game’s best jobs and that’s why it has drawn interest from those under contract elsewhere.
