Cubs Announcers: Morons

No, not Pat Hughes and Ron Santo. Well, yes, them as well, but we're talking about Bob Brenly and Len Kasper. On Saturday Ryan Braun got hit in the head with a Ryan Dempster pitch. Ryan Braun does not like it when people throw at his head, understandably. In his next at-bat, Ryan Braun hit a ball off of Ryan Dempster that is just landing

As Braun started his home run trot he glared at Dempster just for a second. For anyone with half a brain the message was obvious: "That'll teach you to throw at my head, jerk."

But the Cubs announcers don't have much of a grasp of the obvious. They stated that Braun has acquired a reputation for being "cocky" and that if he continues to show up pitchers by glaring at them, he will experience "another intercostal muscle problem during his next at-bat."

They somehow forgot to mention that Dempster had thrown at (and hit) Braun just two at-bats ago. The message, I suppose, is that if Braun keeps hitting home runs off of pitchers who throw at Braun, that pitchers will keep throwing at Braun. OK.

Goevany Soto should also send Kosuke Fukudome a bouquet of flowers for making such a shitty throw home the other day when Prince Fielder scored from second. If that throw is any better the Cubs are placing yet another player on the DL.

Quick Update:

Apparently that pitch actually hit Braun's bat. I watched it in a bar and to me, it looked like it hit his helmet. Either way it was certainly targeted at his head.

The level of Braun-hate from the rest of the league is a concern, no? Whether they're justified or not, fact is a lot of guys are throwing at him. For a guy with already bad ribs, this could become a problem.

I agree and I don't really get it.

E.S.K. said...

His rib problems are muscle related, not broken ribs or anything. A few bruises isn't going to make a muscle strain significantly worse.

I have no problem getting guys on in front of Prince. I do, however, have a problem with Braun's propensity to be an idiot on the bases after he gets plunked.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
