(WSCR) Look, with Bob Brenly heading to Arizona, someone needs to fill his chair and keep Len Kasper company.
Many have suggested 670 The Score’s own Matt Spiegel.
Admittedly, it’s rare for someone with no playing or managerial experience to assume such a role, but before you go on a rant about how Spiegel has “never played in a Major League baseball game” or “never filled out a line up card” you should probably read this: Matt Spiegel’s baseball reference page.
That’s right, Spiegel, also known as El Tributo, spent nine seasons in the majors, playing for five different teams.
“Even though Matt is under contract with 670 The Score, I feel this would be a tremendous opportunity for both Matt and our station,” 670 The Score program director Mitch Rosen said. “Matt is a valuable component of our staff, though given his extraordinary playing career, it only makes sense for him to work alongside Len Kasper in the Cubs broadcast booth.”
In 699 career games, El Tributo registered a .242 batting average with 54 home runs and 218 RBIs.
Granted, Spiegel’s career earnings top out at a mere $4,529,000, and he hasn’t played in a game since 2001, so he could probably use the work.
Evidence of Spiegel’s career is continuing to trickle in, so check back for updates.
