Can’t wait for the cheesy headlines on this one

Posted by Steve

Various news outlets, such as Buster Olney, are reporting that the Brewers are on the verge of signing reliever David Riske. Some early guesses:

Riske Business: Brew Crew sign reliever

Taking a Riske?

Worth the Riske?

Riske Brew

Game of Riske

Anyways, before the contract is disclosed, at least, this is a solid signing for the Brewers. Riske will probably be a candidate to close, but either way he’ll be a late-inning guy.

Quick look at his numbers:

2007: 69.7 IP, 2.45 ERA, 1.263 WHIP, 52 Ks, 27 BBs

Career averages: 74.3 IP, 3.40 ERA, 1.265 WHIP, 68 Ks, 30 BBs

So really he’s nothing spectacular, but he’s solid and likely becomes the best reliever on the Brewers.

So basically, there’s not much of a Riske on Riske!

…Ugh

  1. My headline for this deal would be “Riske Signing a Safe Bet for The Crew.”

  2. I think we have a winner.

  3. While I prefer Erik’s, I was pretty close on one. ESPN.com:
