Please make it stop.

Quotes (paraphrasing actually) from the post-game call-in show:

-"Sheets should be moved to the bullpen"
-"The crowd doesn't know how to be a big game crowd"
-"Sheets isn't the pitcher we think he is"
-"They should've won for JJ because it's his birthday"
-"Ben Sheets is a head case, should be compared to Favre since he needs to feel he's #1"
-"Having Sheets slash-bunt was the worst decision I have ever seen"

Plus a lot of talk about BA and W-L's for pitchers. As Al would say, "oof".

I tell ya what, people sure complain enough about a team that is 17-over .500, up 2.5 games for the wild card and has the second best record in the national league. Did they play well tonight? No they didn't. Are they suddenly a bad team? No they're not. I can only imagine what happens the next time the Brewers have a losing season.

Update: When I say make it stop I don't mean basic debate and logical arguing like we see around here, well, most of the time. I'm talking about the people who call in to sports talk shows and have no clue whatsoever.
