It will be good to see Daron Sutton back in Milwaukee this week calling the games for Arizona. I liked Sutton, but I think BA has done a fine job as well. I'm sure he'll have great things to say about Milwaukee to the Arizona fans in their broadcast.

He had a lot to say in Saturday night's broadcast with Joe Sr. He's pumped.

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.

Who is going to be the player he sucks up to on the Brewers as he did with Eckstein and many other players?

Daron, if you're reading this, I suggest Corey Hart. 8)

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

You know it's going to be Craig Counsell.


"Look at him on the bench just aching for a chance to have ANOTHER game winning hit. You know the Brewers have improved when they have a superstar like Counsell on the bench at their disposal."

counsell or gross are my guesses, but I think razor hit it on the head, most likely Counsell

I miss Daron though, no one gets as exited as him on calls except maybe Tom Hamilton.

Great to have him back. For the first time in his broadcast career, he's going to spend an entire game saying nice things about the Brewers. :)

Wearing my heart on my sleeve since birth. Hopefully, it's my only crime.

razor hit it. It's Counsell. Not only is he the type that'll appeal to Daron, he's also going to be an appealing choice to D'back fans.

If that was his philosophy, then where was all the Irrational Ray King Love in recent years? ;)

I wasn't going to say anything for fear of rousing the ire of the Sutton devotees, and I understand they are legion, but consider this:

I get the MLB cable package, since I'm out-of-state, and heard the away feed for our early-season series versus Arizona.* Sutton was lampooning Milwaukee and the Midwest and regurgitated the "Rust Belt" epithet in the process. The action on the field and the converstion in the booth did not call for his commentary, I remember remarking at the time. Instead, it had a mean-spirited, amateurish feel.

In the interest of full disclosure, I've always considered Sutton clownish and immature as an announcer, so take my sour assessment with an outsize grain of salt.

That said, I have nothing but scorn for those like Sutton who have fun at Milwaukee's expense, the city or the ballclub. I'm sure he will two-facedly proclaim his love for Brewtown while he's here.

*I recognize my error, which I correct below.

The irony is that Daron said previously that he came to Milwaukee because it was his dad's favorite place to play and that he enjoyed the years he spend growing up here.

Maybe I confused, but isnt this the Brewers first series either home or away against Arizona this year? I'm pretty sure of that.

I'm calling shennanigans on this. We haven't played AZ yet this year.

This is our first series with Zona, so that makes the above post very curious indeed.

Maybe the D'backs were playing a different team?

I think I recall someone posting something similiar following a spring game. Not sure if it was the same poster.

Whoops. You are absolutely correct about the Brewers not having played AZ. However I, do flip through a lot of the games (love to listen to Scully, for instance, and shudder at the elder Sutton in DC). That said, I swear on the eyes of my brothers that I remember listening to Sutton dissing MKE.

I loved Daron as the TV voice of the Brewers for those 5 years. It will be nice to see him back in Milwaukee.

Do you think if we just didn't swing at all DD could walk us in about 6 runs?
