Let's make a case for Bob Brenly

Anyone who can stand to listen to Len Kasper call Cub's games on WGN or Comcast certainly has had the pleasure of listening to Bob Brenly as well.  Brenly comes across as a straight-shooter, and he tells it like it is.  He has shown his extreme knowledge of the game, but from the wrong place.

 

I feel he deserves to be in the dugout, not in the broadcast booth.  He often comments about players not hustling, dogging it, etc.  To be fair, he does have a lot of opportunities with this team...  I feel if he were given the chance to manage, he wouldn't be one to put up with much.  Veterans would not play simply because they were veterans.  Bradley would not have gotten as much leway as he did early in the year, which could have led to avoiding the most recent incidents.

Not to mention, he did win a World Series with the Diamondbacks, 4 years into the life of the organization.  He did have Johnson and Schilling, and a juicing Gonzalez, but he still beat Joe Torre that year.

He clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to the game, and I don't think I'm the only one fed up with Lou's passive, "I don't know what else I can do" style.
