John Kruk, the man who last spring regaled the Phils with stories of, for example, the irony that Mario Mendoz is now a hitting instructor and Mitch "Wild Thing" Williams is now a pitching coach, is returning to Philly as a broadcaster and TV personality. He will be leaving The Best Damn Sports Show Period in order to return to the Phillies.
Kruk being paired with fellow oddball Larry Andersen will make for the funniest broadcasts since Bob Uecker in Major League. Kruk as a humorist is like a cross between Will Rogers and Chris Farley. It may be an acquired taste for many, but I can't wait for the first rain delay of the season with Kruk and Andersen in the booth.
