Wow, what a genius! I was totally caught by surprise that they were actually good.


:lol

Now I'm curious. Did he call "Braun" "Brown" and "Guy-r-dough" "Ga-lard-o"?

I'd think he called him the Brown Menace. Or maybe that was Lou Dobbs...

Here's some of his classic Brewer analysis:

I wonder if he hurt poor Coco's feelings.

Ah Belling! Insulting Cordero while hyping the "huge" "Travelgate" scandal.

this team has played 1/3 of a season (56 games) since starting 24-10 and is 4 under 500, including laying an egg during a 2-5 stretch against two pretty bad teams. There is at least some cause for concern i think.

So, if you take out a team's good stretches, they will not have a very good record? Go figure.

You can do that for every team in MLB, by the way.

Yes, Belling is an easy target. I don't think his "fixes' are that outrageous. I've heard more outlandish "fixes" than that from sports talk radio hosts who are supposed experts.

I'd be willing to guess injuries have much more to do with flawed mechanics than the number of innings pitched.

There have been numerous studies that have been done on pitchers, and they have found that those young pitchers who have had significant increases in innings pitched between one year and the next are more likely to be injured. The Brewers are hardly the only team to do this.

All teams are doing is playing the probabilities. You are right, Gallardo could slip on dugout steps tomorrow and break his arm, or bump his head and decide he wants to be a rental car sales agent. And he might pitch 220 innings this year and have an awesome career.

But why go against the odds? This team is built to have a chance to win over several years, not just this year. It would be too bad if the overworked him this year, didn't win anything, and they Eldreded him for the future.

I wonder why that is? Our professional sports teams have been phenomenally successful. It seems like just yesterday that the Brewers almost won the World Series and now that I'm pushing 40, I have fond memories of the Bucks winning the NBA championship when I was three months old.

I'm no regular listener of his show,but i did here him talking about the Brewers and he put out the gem that the most important player on any baseball team is their closer.He followed that up by saying the the Brewers offense would be bad this year because we wouldn't have a .300 batting average hitter.

That's all that i exactly remember from his commentary,but i do recall he also said some other pretty dumb things and wasn't impressed in the slightest with his baseball views.
