Bryan Bulaga launches bombs at Brewers' B.P.

It’s unclear whether rookie tackle Bryan Bulaga will be able to help improve a Packers’ offensive line that performed at times last year like a wet roll of paper towels.  But Bulaga has already shown a different set of skills.

The man can hit a baseball.
Per the Associated Press, Bulaga cranked out 14 home runs while taking batting practice with the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.
Bulaga reportedly parked “several” into the upper deck at the place where the Brewers play their homes games.  (I don’t know it off the top of my head because I don’t follow baseball.  And I don’t feel like looking it up.)
Though his skills with a bat won’t do him any good against the likes of Jared Allen, maybe Bulaga will break out the old Neil Smith celebration after executing a key block.

  1. Looking at the Brewers pitching this year, even Pee Wee Herman could launch a few into the upper deck.

  2. “It’s unclear whether rookie tackle Bryan Bulaga will be able to help improve…”
    Say what? He wasn’t a undrafted free agent, he was the Big Ten’s 2009 OL of the year.
    I think it’s safe to say he _will_ help improve.

  3. Just to show you the difference between teams, the Packer’s future left tackle can swing a mean bat as can the Vikings, the difference is one hits baseballs, the other, human heads.

    Call Florio the “moron” for not caring enough about his post to look up the name of the park. Myself along with what, 5 others, typed in the name of the park, and submitted it, but due to PFT’s rules on comments having to be approved by the blog owner prior to posting, those comments all sat in Florio’s inbox until he blindly approved them, most likely without reading them.

  5. I wouldn’t have bothered to look it up either, Florio. Why research the stadium of a team that has zero chance to win a championship? Everyone knows that under baseball’s fine leadership, the same six teams will be the contenders every year. Everyone else has to trade off their best players to make payroll.
    MLB sucks.

  6. In an unrelated story, Jared Allen bagged another trophy with his bow. The massive animal weighed in at just over 300lbs.
    After paying the farmer, he was seen driving through town with the cow proundly displayed in the back of his F150.

    Are you sure it wasn’t Jarmarcus Russell?
    Just sayin……

  8. Coors Field, dumbass.
    Don’t be an inbecile, Mike McCarthy’s Moobs. Everyone knows it’s Yankee Stadium.

    Really? Because I’m pretty sure that some of the league’s good teams at the current time (Philly, Tampa Bay, San Diego, Cincinnati, Washington, Minnesota aren’t exactly perennial powerhouses (You can claim Philly is, but thats only been the past 5-6 years, previously they were pretty much doormats). Sure, the Yankees are up there, but the Sox, the Dodgers, the Braves, aren’t exactly playing top ball at the moment.
    I dont disagree that MLB needs some type of salary cap, but to say its the same teams year after year, outside of the Yankees, is kind of a ludicrous statement.

  10. Maybe Bulaga can replace Prince when he leaves for the Red Sox in a year…….

  11. I wasn’t expecting this to be posted here. For the 2010 season he’d help the Brewers more than the Packers, that’s for sure. Brewers are awful and the Packers are going to win the Super Bowl this year.

  12. The Brewers bullpen must have been throwing batting practice…..and yes, I am a Brewers fan, but they are pathetic this year.

  13. I dont disagree that MLB needs some type of salary cap, but to say its the same teams year after year, outside of the Yankees, is kind of a ludicrous statement.
    It’s perhaps an exaggeration, but it’s not far from accurate. Sure, every year some cinderella team will play well and contend, but none of them, no matter how good their farm system, management, and coaching are, have the ability to have sustained excellence on the field for a period of years. They just can’t compete financially.
    And sure, the Red Sox, Braves, etc may end up having shit years, but all they need to do is open up their pocketbooks in the offseason and they’ll contend again in 2011.
    In other words, those teams’ fans always have hope. While fans of teams like the Brewers, Pirates, etc. already know before opening day that their teams’ chances are about a zillion to one.
    MLB desperately needs a salary cap, and it won’t be fun to follow until it does. I’m from near the Tampa Bay area, follow the Rays, and am stoked about how the season is going, but it pisses me off that the Rays may not be able to keep the team together for this whole season. After trading away one of their best pitchers last year just to make this year’s payroll, there are rumors we may have to trade off one of our players again this year.
    But if the Yankees are still in contention, hey, they can just trade for some slugger or pitcher for the stretch run.
    MLB sucks. Bud Selig sucks. He’s the worst commissioner in the history of professional sports.

  14. This guy is a fantastic athlete and only 21.
    Just because he humble and well mannered means some like ESPN won’t notice anyone who isn’t a jerk.
    If he flexed his muscles in the camera and claimed to be the greatest of all time yet never accomplished anything he would get noticed like TO, Jared “drunken mullet” Allen, and Ochocinco.
    Bulaga is a far better human being. He let’s his accomplishments do the talking.

  15. At least someone is hitting for a wisconsin team at miller park, jeez. I’m sort of a surprised to hear a muscle bound guy like him with no neck can hit!

  16. You spend the better part of a month writing about Big Ben but you can’t take 20 seconds to Google Milwaukee Brewers to see where they play? Sad.

  17. A sport without a salary cap is a joke. I love baseball, I watch it almost everyday. But its a joke to call the team that wins the World Series the best team in baseball. If football doesn’t get a cap, it will regress in popularity because we will have the same 5 teams remaining competitive year after year.

  18. It’s Mickey’s Big Mouth Coliseum for pete’s sake!
    Everyone knows that. Member it’s the only ballpark with built in urinals in every seat, well it’s the back of the head of the guy sitting in front you, but it beats walking up steps.
    You know…Milwakee.

  19. And while this was going on, the Vikings managed to sack Aaron Rodgers three more times and record another safety.

  20. Wonder if Tracy Porter caught any of them…I hear he has great hands….just ask Bret Pharv

    Apparently you forget what happened the last time Green Bay drafted the Big Ten OL of the year. Mandarich was supposed to be a “sure thing” as well.

  22. It’s a shame this guy plays for the Packers.
    All that potential upside and he gets to play for the Raiders equivalent of an offensive line.
    A busted condom offers more protection than Green Bays front five.
    With no supporting cast in Green Bay this poor guy never had a chance to succeed.

  23. “I wasn’t expecting this to be posted here. For the 2010 season he’d help the Brewers more than the Packers, that’s for sure. Brewers are awful and the Packers are going to win the Super Bowl this year.”
    I don’t follow baseball, and never have liked it, however, Bulaga is a beast, and +10 for you realizing that Titletown will happen again.

  24. Hmmm… well timegambit I do know Milwaukee – was that what you meant? Yeah, uncouth drunks, funny stuff. I think it’s probably the only ballpark in the country with dumb drunks in it.

  25. Meanwhile across the border the queens fans are beginning the annual chant of “this is our year” It slowly drowns out the cry’s of the refs beat us in the big easy. We dont know who will be our starting qb but we are the best team ever. If Brett dont come back just as well Tjack is the answer. A.P will be held accountable for his fumbles and we mean it this time. The bears game was just his warning. We dont know where we will be playing in a few years but at the last second a stadium deal will get done. All the Season ticket holders will buy P.S.L’s to save the vikes. Then to come up with the remaing funds needed Jared Allen will make a public service announcement begging the taxpayers to pitch in a little more. Prince will write a song about the vikings and donate the proceeds to the stadium fund. Jared Allen and the former Governor will hold a pay per view wrestling match where the winner gets to have 1 hr of alone time with chilly wearing his dress. Jared Allen and rest of the queens will make up for the butt whooping Favre took. Well at least the ones who aren’t suspended. L.T didn’t sign with us after we whined and dined him at Burger King. Thats alright we have a guy on the practice squad that makes Barry Sanders look average.

  26. Whatever respect I had left for Florio is now gone. If you don’t know something, do the research. It’s your frickin job dude. Complete laziness…

  27. I’m glad to know he has a fallback career after Jared Allen hands him ass a few times this year…

  28. @LBPackFan
    Ya know “handing him ass”…
    his ass, some of the ass Tiger Woods got, a jack ass…
    OK — I meant to type “hands him his ass”.
    I couldn’t let the Bulaga Batting Practice Love Fest continue indefinitely, but I failed to proof my response before I hit ‘Submit’ — ya got me!

  29. What did the Brewers do, play ‘Pop Goes the Weasel’ on continuous loop for Curley er Bulaga? There’s Larry Fine on the mound looking like 1975 Oscar Gamble and Moe as catcher. WooWooWoo.

  30. Baseball players:
    Even the least athletic football players are better athletes.

    But fortunately the Packers have the inside track on the World Series now…

  33. Florio, you couldn’t take a little time to google. Just type in “milwaukee brewers baseball stadium” and BOOM Tough Actin’ Tinactin, it pops up. Stop being lazy, man. Don’t turn into BSPN on us.

    No, but ironically your comment has as much to do with the topic as Daily Norseman’s did.
    ..and as much as this entire thread has to do with “ProFootballTalk”.

  35. Well, you guys just are not going to let my Contra is a result of a busted condom comment get through are ya.

    miller park is a dump, the slide is to let the grease run off the fans.

    If Miller Park is a dump then the Metrodome is a sewage treatment plant.
