Brennaman, Brennaman & Brantley
No, it's not a high-powered law firm, it's the new Reds radio announcing crew. "Sources" have leaked that Jeff Brantley will be joining the announcing team next year hoping to provide some actual baseball knowledge to the Brennaman squared team. Of course, we all know that Brantley learned everything he knows from that ladies' man Harold Reynolds, add that to any Steve Lyons that may have rubbed off on Thom Brennaman and we've got quite a crew. Throw Nuxie in to the equation for a few games a year and you've got a party. Only one thing bothers me. This picture of Brantley to the right. He has that same look in every single picture ever taken. I'm not entirely sure how to describe it, my best shot would be "vaguely nefarious, yet utterly confounded". However, if that translates to the booth it could replace Nuxie's "formerly knowledgable, yet utterly incontinent"presence nicely (for the record I love Nuxhall, he's just over the hill). So, let me be the first to congratulate you, Jeff. Bring your lifetime 3.86 ERA to the ballpark every day, convince Marty to call you a "gamer" and maybe you can talk to Eric Milton for us.
