Caller Of The Day: Greg Maddux Not a First-Ballot HOFer

(WSCR) We’ll start by saying this: In 23 seasons, Greg Maddux garnered 355 wins, 3,371 strikeouts to 999 walks with a 3.16 ERA.

Maddux was voted to eight All Star games, he was a World Series champion, he won the Gold Glove award 18 times and was a four-time Cy Young Award winner.

That brings us to Steve in Algonquin who questioned whether or not Maddux was a first-ballot Hall of Famer. If Greg Maddux isn’t a first-ballot Hall of Famer, the Hall of Fame shouldn’t exist.

This statement prompted host Dan Bernstein to ask, on several occasions if Steve was out of his “damn-fool mind.”

Steve argues that Maddux’s numbers are inflated due to umpires calling a “huge strike zone in that era.”

Not to be out-done, however, later, the boys fielded a call from Bill in Milwaukee who said the Bulls shouldn’t try to trade for Dwight Howard after the team’s win over the Celtics last week.

Bernstein later asked that Bill never call into The Boers and Bernstein Show again.

    Why are these “Caller of the Day” blurbs printed here on Days the Calls were not actually made? Day late and a dollar short is what this should be called. Its all scripted anyway so whats the point? Matt gives the high sign to Bernsie when its time for one of these, the caller and his content doesnt matter, Bernsie just goes into his Socratic interrogative spiel and voila, a new “caller of the day” segment—only here, on the web site, the day doesnt match. Scripted folks, its all scripted. They just plug in a caller and pull out the routine to be followed by Bernsie and the poor caller chosen ends up here, no matter what their topic or claim was. Bernsie manipulates the sucker into saying things they then both pounce on. Scripted…why you think they have multiple Producers and Interns on the show?
