The Crafty Lefty Strikes Again 

Bill Kreuger, A.K.A. "The Crafty Lefty," has been filling in for the regular color men (Ron Fairly, Dave Henderson, et al.) on the Mariner TV broadcasts lately, and has been doing a wonderful job so far. Today he struck early with a gem. After reading the M's starting lineup:

RF Ichiro
CF Winn
2B Boone
DH Jacobsen
SS Lopez
1B Spiezio
C Wilson
3B Leone
LF Bloomquist

Kreuger could be heard muttering, live, "Uhh, that's gotta be a misprint."

I hope they keep him around for a while.

I hope so too! He's surely not the best color guy in the world, but he's much, much better than the two Daves to say the least.
Plus he sometimes says things that can be agreed to.
The thing about the Daves is that I really do like them both as people, which makes it all the more painful when they blurt out their uninsightful garbage. I hopelessly expect better, knowing full well it won't happen. Kreuger at least has had a lot of on-camera television experience before coming to the broadcast booth, and it shows.
