So Long Dr. Smooth


By Harry Cummins

     After 15 seasons and 1,445 games, sweet swinging Michael Brantley has decided to call it quits this week.

     Playing for Cleveland and Houston, Brantley was a 5 time All Star and a Silver Slugger Award winner in 2014.  With 1,656 hits he ended his career with a .298 batting average. Rare air.

     Brantley probably will never make it to Cooperstown, but his picture book swing will endure in the minds of his many fans.  His quiet manner stamped him as one of baseball's most respected players. 

    His coveted power-speed combo likely anchored many a fantasy baseball teams lineup as well. 

    Including mine.
