John Rooney, the White Sox play-by-play voice on ESPN 1000, appears to be at a crossroads as the Sox move their broadcast down the dial to WSCR.
Sox management and WSCR executives will make the decision on the team's play-by-play man for next season. Rooney has teamed with color analyst Ed Farmer for the past 14 years and an Internet site recently acknowledged them as the best radio team in the American League.
"There is a longstanding relationship with the Sox," Mandell said. "I don't anticipate a lot of changes, but we will have to go through the process."
