Milwaukee Brewers give Uecker a statue outside Miller Park

Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker was never a great baseball player by any stretch of the imagination. But he is very popular with Brewers fans and baseball fans in general.

For that reason, the Brewers management unveiled a statue on Friday outside of Miller Park of the 77 year old icon.

The 7-foot bronze statue feature Uecker smiling with his hands in his pockets.

Uecker, who grew up in Milwaukee, affectionately dubbed “Mr. Baseball” by Tonight Show host Johnny Carson in the 1970′s, joins Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Robin Yount and Former Brewers owner and current MLB Commissioner Bud Selig as the fourth person to have a statue outside the main gates of Miller Park.

The 90-minute ceremony included members of  Uecker’s 80′s hit television show “Mr. Belvedere”, which ran for 117 episodes from 1980 to 1985. Other attending was former Milwaukee Braves teammate Joe Torre and former Brewers star reliever Rollie Fingers.

A righty all the way, Uecker’s claim to fame is that he hit a home run off of Hall of Fame lefty Sandy Koufax. His career totals include a .200 batting average with 14 homers, 74 RBI’s while playing for the Milwaukee Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia and Atlanta. He won a World Series championship in 1964 with the Cardinals and was awarded the Ford C. Frick Award in 2003 which puts him in the broadcast wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

As expected, Indians release veteran Derek Lowe

 

Ten days ago, the Cleveland Indians designated veteran right-hander Derek Lowe for assignment. That meant the team had ten days to trade, or release him.  Today, Friday August 10 was the deadline.

The verdict is Cleveland has released Lowe.

There are reports on Twitter that Lowe will start or relieve and would like to go back to the National League.

The 39-year-old Lowe,  posted a 5.52 ERA with 3.1 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 119 innings with Cleveland this year. He has a 15 million dollar salary, but the Braves and Indians are responsible for all but the pro-rated MLB minimum at this point. So any team can sign him and only have to pay the minimum salary.

Baltimore Orioles pound Lowe, Indians, 10-2

 

Currently, at the end of July, the Cleveland Indians look more like pretenders, than contenders in the American League Central Division.

The Tribe has been sputtering since June 23. The Indians are 10-14 and has been passed up by the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers in the up-for-grabs division. The Indians are three games behind the White Sox.

With Derek Lowe on the mound last night, Cleveland did not fare well as a contender. Lowe gave up nine runs in three-plus innings of their 10-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in front of a disappointed crowd of 33,954 at Progressive Field.

The Orioles through the first five innings, pounded the baseball for five doubles, two home runs and led 9-1.

Former Indians’ star Jim Thome had a double, homer and single in going 3 for 5. The lefty-swinging slugger hit a high, deep homer to right for the 610th of his career, tying Sammy Sosa for seventh all-time on the MLB home run list.
