I liked Jeff Brantley when he was a Red, but he has some flaws as an analyst. Brian Baute has taken a look at a recent comment Brantley made about why the Reds wouldn’t make the playoffs, and shredded it:
And a decade ago I might have heard that and wondered if he was right then assumed he knows what heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s talking about (he and the ESPN research department, that is). But now itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s too easy to disprove dumb statements like that.
Aaah, the internet. Gotta love it.
