Ron Roenicke's weird week

Ron Roenicke has been around the game of baseball a long, long time, breaking into the major leagues in 1981. If he hasn't seen it all, he's seen most of it.

But, the last week has been pretty eventful for the Brewers' skipper. It began in Houston last Saturday when starter Zack Greinke was ejected after four pitches, followed quickly to the showers by Roenicke himself (video below).

Then, Roenicke was off to Kansas City for the All-Star game as an assistant coach for manager Tony LaRussa.

Well, he got some unwanted face time there too as he was caught in Chipper Jones' "motivational" pre-game speech - forcing him to jump out of the frame as fast as he could.

Roenicke laughed about the moment before the game tonight, saying he had moved to that end of the clubhouse to move away from LaRussa in anticipation of the manager being captured on TV.

Greinke's quick ejection led to a second straight start Sunday before the break, which didn't go too well, and now a third here at Miller Park in a couple of hours.

It's the first time it's happened since 1917.

"It's strange when you look at that, Roenicke said. "It's weird. It was weird. leading up to what happened there and you certainly can't plan for that kind of stuff."
