I've never heard Deshaies, but I feel like he has to be the best choice out of the rumored candidates, just by default. So I'm happy enough.

I have listened to/watched him do the Astros games for years, and while I am not an Astros fan, I really appreciate his knowledge of the game and objectivity. He is very very good. Cubs fans will be happy. I will miss him here in Texas.
