Jett Bandy showed off his hidden skill as a Brent Suter impersonator

Catchers have to know everything about the pitching staff they work with: Their repertoire, personality tics, favorite food (probably). Because of that, they surely know the ins and outs of every pitching motion. 

Before the Brewers' 5-4 loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday, Jett Bandy showed off those skills with a wonderfully spot-on impersonation of Brent Suter's pitching motion.

Not only did Bandy capture Suter's hunched, elbow-up motion, he even captured shuffle as Suter walks back to the mound. And that's what makes this less of an impersonation and more of a Daniel Day Lewis-style embrace of a role.
