BB's bum knee
The Cubs have been relatively healthy this spring, but do have one “player” on crutches. Bob Brenly, the Cubs’ TV analyst, was hobbling Monday after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Brenly says he had the procedure done in preparation for possible knee replacement surgery after the season. He’s used to this — he’s had seven surgeries on his knees. That’s what happens to catchers. Monday was his first Cactus League game. Brenly and teammate Len Kasper will have their first broadcast Wednesday from Las Vegas.
“I could play,” Brenly said. “I’m day to day.”
