Then they can use the fire to burn the Brewers bats since they don't seem to need them. Yes, the Curse of the Retro Jerseys continues as the Brewers wasted a combined 9 inning shut out. I have to admit I was wrong about something, I have been bitching that you cannot score one run and expect to win. Well, if they had managed to score one run in the first 9 innings they would have won.
One fucking run scored in the last two starts by Gallardo that is just criminal he is getting the Ben Sheets treatment by the Bats since they refuse to score runs for him.
Speaking of the China doll don't you love how he is holding the whole team hostage with another one of his vague injuries not so bad that they can for sure say he won't make his next start. But not so bad that he needs to go on the DL even though he has missed a start again. Being up in the air over Ben Sheets status is a big reason the Brewers are carrying 14 pitchers and handcuffing themselves with only 3 bench players. Something that hurt them last night.
I know it is still early and that they will hit eventually but I have to admit I am get sick and tired of watching this so called high power line up waste good start after good start. They have gotten lucky the Cards and Cubs have both lost the last two night so no ground was lost, but then again no ground was made up either.
They came close last night a couple times Braun just missed a home run and Prince just missed playing the role of late inning hero as the ball was just foul. But they are not doing the little things right at the moment. You get runners on and cannot move them over, they are making stupid mistake after stupid mistake on the base paths.
There is no way this team should be losing games when you're starting pitcher goes 7 inning and does not give up a run. The real sad part is the last two nights of futility were against left handed starters this team is supposed to eat left hand pitching like Rosie O'Donald at a free buffet.
As you can tell Chris is down on the Crew right now(cool I just went third person outstanding lol) they are a very frustrating baseball team to watch right now they cannot hit they cannot do the little thing right when they are on offense and then you have to deal with the Managerial Genius that is Ned Yost. Yes, I know it is still April and they are still in a good place standings wise but it drives me nuts to see them giving away games like they are right now.
I will be honest I am becoming less and less enthralled with J.J. Hardy, he is slow really slow for a skinny guy right now he has reverted to his no stick form of past years, he just looks like he is sleep walking out there.
Well, enough looking back time to look forward, the Crew have to win today to avoid their second 3 game losing streak of the season.
Villanueva vs. Hendrickson to day at warm and dry and wonderful Miller Park.
First pitch is at 6:05pm CDT
The Brewers website is showing the game on craptacular WMLW Channel 41 the weak sister station of CBS 58 the worst CBS Station in America. Since the Suck Ass Does are done playing I am assuming that out state will see the game on FSN. I hope you guys get the game at least.
Radio WTMJ AM620 and the BRN
What can you say we are looking for Carlos to have two good outings in a row and for the Bats to wake up and punish someone(other that Brewers fans)
We are all just sitting here waiting for the Bash Your Way To Glory offense we expected and were promised, this team is not playing Earl Weaver Ball, Praise be un to him but they cannot play Small Ball either so we are kind of screwed at the moment
It is funny now many games did they blow last year after getting big leads now this year they are the polar opposite they keep wasting great pitching performances.
Be interesting to see how they respond tonight to back to back crappy performances.
