Ron Fairly, longtime Angel radio broadcaster, has left the club to become the lead radio and television announcer for the San Francisco Giants. Fairly replaces Hank Greenwald, whose contract wasn't renewed by San Francisco station KNBR. Fairly played 21 years in the major leagues and has spent the last eight seasons as the commentator on Angel broadcasts. Fairly reportedly was only offered a one-year contract by Golden West Broadcasting, which employs the Angel announcers.

Ron Fair, the new chairman of Geffen Records, is the rarest type of music chief: a musician. The son of an opera singer, Fair has taught himself to play multiple instruments. He tried his hand as a wedding singer, jingle writer and pianist before eventually rising to prominence as the executive behind such acts as Christina Aguilera, the Black Eyed Peas and the Pussycat Dolls.

San Francisco, known for its hills, cable cars, fine restaurants and grand hotels, is also known for being tough on sports announcers. So when former Angel broadcaster Ron Fairly, mediocre at best, replaced popular Hank Greenwald as the Giants' No. 1 play-by-play man this season, the Bay Area critics began sharpening their knives.

Pat Fairly is probably one of only a few baseball nuts who actually benefited from the recent major league lockout. He found a silver bat in the cloud of the lockout when he locked in a new swing. The training-camp interruption afforded Pierce's sophomore slugger an opportunity to work with his dad, former major leaguer Ron Fairly, and the results have been smashing. "He turned me around totally," said Pat, who recently set a school single-season record with his 10th home run.

Veteran record executive Ron Fair has been named president of A&M Records. Fair, formerly senior vice president of artists and repertoire at RCA Records, will fill a job that has been vacant since 1999, when A&M was folded into Universal Music Group's Interscope division as part of Universal's merger with PolyGram. At RCA, Fair was credited with signing pop sensation Christina Aguilera.

The Vin Scully Show, now embarking on its 36th year with the Dodgers, rolls on and on, with each new reviewer gushing more than the last. Fifty-seven summers aren't much betrayed in his ruddy-red Irish face. Neither is the sadness when he smiles, which, by nature and by design, is practically always. Yeah, even Vin Scully, master-weaver of high drama and happy endings, has his sadnesses.

After reading Larry Stewart's column (Aug. 14), my conclusion is that those people in San Francisco are a bunch of wimps! It is true, Ron Fairly is awful behind the microphone. He was awful as second banana with the Angels and I was chagrined to learn he was selected as top gun for the Giant broadcasts. To hear the denizens of Candlestick giving rise to cries of anguish and resentment is laughable, considering Fairly has only been on the job for five months. Good grief, they should endure for nearly 30 years as we Dodger fans have endured Jerry Doggett.
