Spheroid: Brewer Baseball For the Serious Fan


Rob started the MLBlog Brewer Baseball For the Serious Fan on Jan. 13, and it’s time to get to know him a little better. The computer programmer says he was one of the first fans to reach the pitcher’s mound during a celebration in the team’s 1982 glory year and once was given tryouts by the Cubs and Reds. You never know who’s blogging around here, and we appreciate him taking the time to answer these Nine Questions as today’s featured Spheroid:

What are the best reasons that other baseball fans should visit your MLBlog?

A lot of statistical analysis is provided or compiled on request in the midst of a debate, plus in the Brewer Nation, more than one person writes the columns.

If your MLBlog were any baseball player past or present, who would he be and why?

Ty Cobb. From reading the book and watching the movie, Cobb tells it like it is. While we try to stay politically correct, we do not apologize and we are not apologists.

How did you first hear about MLBlogs and why did you join The Show?

There was a link on the Brewers page for Daron Sutton’s blog which is more about everything other than baseball not to mention he’s on their payroll so while I like the concept, I felt the answers from him will always protect his employer.

Favorite blogs of any kind, including at least one in the MLBlogosphere?

Any of them who talk about baseball such as Red Sox Chick, Party like it’s 1982, and Obviously, You’re Not a Golfer.

What was your most memorable post and why?

MillerparkReviewing the book, "Game of Shadows" and talking about the Rob Garabaldi story which had me hurting for his family.

What is something not on your About page that MLBloggers should know about you?

I hate all teams that play in Chicago. Living in Milwaukee and having them invade my City and Miller Park drives me nuts.

Everyone’s talking about "Web 2.0." What is your vision for baseball and fan content/interaction?

Not sure what Web 2.0 is. If it’s coverage on the Net for Baseball, there is nothing better. I even listen and watch minor league games on the net!

What does baseball mean to you?

Like James Earl Jones says in Field of Dreams, "It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again."

Happiness is…

A Brewer Victory coupled with a Cubs and White Sox loss!

Happiness also is having a baseball blog to chronicle your thoughts and multimedia throughout the year. Please visit Rob’s blog at Brewer Baseball For the Serious Fan and feel free to email us your own responses to those (or other) Nine Questions so we can help make more people aware of your MLBlog. Join other Spheroids.


Somebody viewed this page today off of my blog. I remember Rob doing this interview. SO much is different now. LOL

Gotta scramble to the Red Carpet deal on the Roberto Clemente Bridge, but fyi great post Zoe and congrats on how the book is going…


My first baseball game ever was Mets-Brewers, 2003. The boyfriend thought it would be a good introduction since he thought we would win. Yeah, that didn’t happen. The Mets weren’t doing so hot in 2003.

Still, that game made a fan out of me, and look where that went!
