The Grant Balfour Report

by Bill Chuck on October 8, 2013

There are a lot of things I really like about Grant Balfour:

I like that he’s from Sydney, Australia, home of one my favorite comedians, Peter Meisel.

I like that he continues a long tradition of insane relievers with his Tourette’s-like rants on the mound to no one.

And I really like his consistency on the mound.

Check out the similar numbers between this year and last
