I've always said Jeff Brantley was an English major who happened to throw a 95 MPH two-seam fastball. Which is why, when he joined the Reds broadcast team before the '07 season, I was positively thrilled.
The Mississippi Wordsmith was at it again Thursday night. Here's how Brantley described one of Johnny Cueto's early-inning strikeouts: "The bottom just literally fell out."
(Note: I re-watched the same highlight a few dozen times and the ball seemed to stay in one piece. Who knows?)
