Broadcaster Bob

While on the topic of the Cubs/Cards series, Cubs broadcaster Bob Brenly made the news by calling out the Cubs for lackluster performance and effort yesterday. “This has been, once again, another dead-ass team," is the quote from the article.

It wasn't the only time he called out the Cubs performance. Watching the game on Sunday a Cardinals hitter popped up a ball that landed in the third baseline dugout. Cubs' third baseman Aramis Ramirez trotted over - it was faster than a mosey but definitely less than a run - and watched it fall into the dugout. It appears the ball was reachable by leaning over the railing a bit.

I don't have a transcript but either Len Kasper or Bob made the comment that Ramirez ran about half speed over to the dugout and maybe could have made a play. Bob said, and I'm paraphrasing here, "We don't really know what full speed for Ramirez is since he's never shown it to us."
