Royals Announcer Compares Dan Wheeler To Fetus

Dan Wheeler is not only my favorite Devil Ray ever from the great state of Rhode Island and the 93rd greatest Devil Ray ever, he’s also the premier setup man in the sport.テつ That’s why it was disappointing Saturday night to hear the Fox Sports Kansas City announcers mocking Wheeler’s mound routine in the middle game of a three-game Devil Rays sweep in KC.

Here’s a photo illustration and a transcript of what was said by play-by-play man Ryan Lefebvre and commentator and ex-Royal Frank White:


Lefebvre: Interesting setup for Dan Wheeler.テつ After he gets the sign from the catcher he kinda coils himself in — I called it kind of a standing fetal postion.テつ And kinda wiggling the ball in his glove, almost as if he’s talking to himself, or getting himself pumped up.テつ And then he stands upright, nice and calm, and delivers the pitch.

White: Ya, you always wonder how players develop their routines, and this is one of the most unusual routines that you’ll see.

RL: Kinda shaking his hand as he’s wiggling the ball in the glove.テつ And then stands upright and everything’s fine in the world.

Lefebvre is the same guy who gained notoriety last season for making horribly offensive racist comments comparing Milton Bradley and Josh Hamilton during a Rangers-Royals broadcast.テつ He’s also the son of mediocre former big league manager Jim Lefebvre.

    ummm….. so whats your point? you’re saying that lefebvre is wrong? i was listening to said broadcast and i don’t see any harm in what was said. wheeler’s set up IS really odd (true statement alert). he didn’t say he was bad/ineffective, who cares?

    and btw, lefebvre didn’t make “horribly offensive racist” remarks about milton bradley. and on top of that to take a potshot at his dad? what is your deal Chalk?

  2. joe says:

    Yeah seriously, what was the point of this? Since when is the term “fetal position” offensive?

  3. dude abides says:

    I imagine if you analyzed every broadcasters every single word each night, you could come up with even more useless posts like these.

    You guys must be new around here. Chalk is a retard, don’t waste time trying to understand him.
