"So long, pal" (imagine Jack Brickhouse) is usually reserved for those who have passed on. However, in this case it is appropriate. This man
is no longer the color commentator for the beloved. He was driven away by integrity-challenged nincompoops in both the front office and the manager's chair. Such a shame that in this day and age, political correctness wins out over good, honest, TRUTH.
Moises will piss on his hands in another city, Kent Mercker will play on in relative obscurity and Dusty Baker will continue to mismanage his pitching staff while apologizing for the entire team. Stone Pony's excellent on-the-money pearls of wisdom will be truly missed by Cubs fans across the USA.
So long, Pal.
