Sad news for old-school Milwaukee Brewers fans today...former manager George Bamberger has passed away at age 58. (MilwaukeeBrewers.com) Cancer got him.

"Bambi," as we knew him up here, was a pitching coach with Baltimore for a long time before getting the Milwaukee managing gig, and morphing the ballclub into "Bambi's Bombers," the AL powerhouse of the late 70's...and paving the way for the AL Championship team of 1982. He came back for a later stint in the mid-80's, too.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has a nice article on Bamberger, too. One quote:

"Without George Bamberger, I would not have had a career. The battery on my cell phone is going to die before I run out of George Bamberger stories."
--Gorman Thomas, former Brewers slugger


RIP, Bambi. We'll miss you.






Star wipe, and...we're out.
Thrillin' ain't easy.

Bambi was really much older - like 80 or so. Crap, he played back in the early 50s.

I sure hope there's a moment of silence for him this Friday. RIP Bambi.

They self same Kenny Rogers who has somehow gotten 9 wins this season. But he is better than Ponson, I was sort of upset that the Giants didn't keep him, but then... I got over it, fast.
