Anderson on Escobar
Brewers TV play-by-play man Brian Anderson and I must run with like-minded friends, because he’s been getting the same question this winter. No, not, “What do you do in the offseason?” But, “What do you expect from Alcides Escobar.”
I think Anderson comes up with the correct answer in this great post on his MLBlog, and I wholeheartedly agree that Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun have set an impossibly high bar that hopefully won’t get in the way of Escobar’s rookie progression. BA also gets into the pressure Escobar faces to follow in the footsteps of some legendary Venezuelan forefathers, a topic that requires much more examination in Spring Training.
So I’ll stop writing and let you head over to Brian Anderson’s House of Blogs for a great read.
