Maybe they'll finally make a playoff run this season? Lol
I dunno about the Pirates. I'm calling fluke. The Brewers are looking BEASTLY behind strong pitching from their rotation and explosive offense by Fielder, Braun and Weeks.

That's why I added an "Lol" at the end .. although it definitely is weird seeing them over 500 this late into the season. I think they're only 3 games back of the Brewcrew too.

They will get paid regardless. MLB seizing control means they are in charge of funding for operations (including active player salaries) until a new buyer has been found. That doesn't include inactive players like Manny Ramirez though who is due $8.8M by the Dodgers + Frank McCourt. That dumbass should've let his wife win the team so she could be all stressed out over this crap.

1 vote for the brew crew wisconsin native here.

Not looking forward to battling the evil empire today. Will we have to see CC? Hope not...miss that guy terribly lol.

Brewers have been pretty inconsistant this year so far. Greinke finally looked pretty good his last two times out. Gallardo is starting to settle down a bit. Only problem is that roeneke (mgr) is using the BP way too much. And using the same guys too much...Kam Loe must have more innings than just about all other relievers in the league right now. No wonder he blows leads a lots. Needs a rest. Let the starters go beyond the 7th inning for once...thats why they get paid the big bucks. Just my .02.

Also, crew just made some spots open on their roster, so there may be a trade coming soon to bolster some positions. If they got consistant help from the 5-8 spots in the order, they would be a NASTY team. right now, you get through the top 4, you can cruise pretty well.

Phils offense is sketchy at best and Beckett has an ERA under 2. Chances of the bats showing up seem sketchy.

MIL being the small market team that it is, doesn't have players that "make the big bucks" besides Braun. Fielder is due for a HUGE pay day and Greinke will be too after next season. Regardless, they are a good team but they do need help in the bullpen as you stated. They have the making to perhaps be a playoff caliber team this season.

yeah I really didn't want to start talking about the whole payroll thing, its pretty frustrating in MLB the way its set up. Pretty lame honestly. a team like the brewers gets to develop all this talent, only to have them leave to get bigger money elsewhere because some other team can afford it....pretty lame.

But, I don't think the brew crew's BP is really that bad, I think its more how Roeneke uses it. He uses certain guys too much (K. Loe) and others not nearly enough (hawkins??). This year's trade deadline shall be an interesting one...haven't been keeping up on rumors or anything, but I know as of today, brewers have 36 of 40 roster spots filled, so they have space either for promotions or a trade or two. We shall see soon.

Actually I Think all the closers should show up for the All Star game with the beard. A tribute, as it were.

It looks like We have a few bats tonight, too.

That beard is now the ML SV leader

I wish we could play the Central divisions all season lol. Took the series from the Twins (lost the single game where Bumgarner threw 0.1 innings so that was a fluke considering he struck out 11 the start after that), swept the Indians, and today, won both games in the double header vs the Cubbies. 7 game winning streak thanks to AL/NL Central Got Lincecum pitching tomorrow so that should be a hell of a game.

Actually, if you look at the stat line - Price outpitched Cueto. Cueto was charged w/ 3 ER. Regardless, both starters were pretty effective.

I thought the Lee vs Beckett matchup would've been a duel but Philly put Boston to shame which makes me happy b/c now we're up 1.5 in the East. Yay.

Hawkins sucks. That's why they aren't going to use him often. He pitches terrible under pressure and he's injury prone.

You're welcome

Yeah, I thought it would have been closer than that. I watched Domonic Brown come up through the farm system (as an Iron Pig -- a ****ing stupid team name) and he's got the kind of bat the Phillies need. His defense, though is only so-so. Beckett was just throwing too many cookies. It could have been worse.

All the boys from NY did a bit of damage last night. The Yankees were no surprise, but two slams by the Mets?

The Phillies need a right handed bat and Brown is a lefty. The Phils already have a few good lefty power bats (Utley and Howard). They need a righty to balance things out.

well, for my sanity I hope the brew crew decides to show up tonight, cuz obviously they didn't last night. That was ugly. They play horrible on the road. And their interleague schedule was just brutal this year... Rays, BoSox, Yankees and the twins twice. ugh. Almost over.

Hawkins last year had his share of breakdowns, no doubt about it. In pretty sparse action he has done pretty well this year. Dont know what his stats were from last nite, but for the year he hasn't been horrible by any means.

If the crew plan on doing anything this season beyond just "qulifying" for the playoffs, they need to learn to play on the road, they have been abysmal all season long, and last night just continued that streak...

Brew Crew don't stand a chance tonight only because Marcum is pitching and the Yanks DESTROY Marcum. Go ahead and look up the stats if you desire, they aren't pretty. The fact that CC is pitching tomorrow doesn't help them much either. I'm just hoping that Burnett can hold up against the slaughter that will unfold.

Just an fyi - the Brewers have the MLB's worst road record at 15-26.

oh I fully understand that they have the worst road record in the majors, and they also have (or had at least) the best home record in the majors.

As far as marcum, I dunno. He had quite the meltdown in boston a week ago, hopefully it doesn't repeat. Other than that one outing, he has been pretty solid this year for us, way more consistant than Greinke, thats for sure. Greinke's stats are a little misleading, obviously the 5+ ERA isn't at this point tho, but his 7-3 record surely is.

On CNNsi they mentioned Roeneke as a candiate for NL coach of the year, I laughed out loud. Being this abysmal on the road is gonna doom this club in the end, they gotta get it figured out.

At least the yankee fans can feel good that their super crazy inflated payroll can buy them some wins against the lowly brew crew right?? :P

Ehh, payroll is irrelevant. The Brewers have all the tools to beat any team (including the powers that be; Yankees, Red Sox, etc).

Other than that one outing, he has been pretty solid this year for us, way more consistant than Greinke, thats for sure. Greinke's stats are a little misleading, obviously the 5+ ERA isn't at this point tho, but his 7-3 record surely is.

On CNNsi they mentioned Roeneke as a candiate for NL coach of the year, I laughed out loud. Being this abysmal on the road is gonna doom this club in the end, they gotta get it figured out.

At least the yankee fans can feel good that their super crazy inflated payroll can buy them some wins against the lowly brew crew right?? :P
The general strategy in baseball (or any sport for that matter) is to pile up wins at home and break even on the road. The Phillies have the best record in the league. They're like 1 game over .500 on the road. The Rays seem to be the only team in the league that's figured out how to really win on the road this year.

Surprisingly enough, it has been that way since 2008. The Rays have been quite the unstoppable force while playing on the road.

Apparently Phillies pitchers are extremely injury prone.

You're saying that like its a bad thing


13th inning for this Giants vs Cubs game.. and just as I type that, Pablo Sandoval hits a solo shot. 2-1 G men.. lets finish this up already geez!

Edit: This is ridiculous. Ramirez gives up a double, then a single.. tie game AGAIN, and now the Cubs got a runner at 2nd. I'm seriously going nuts over here.

When your team is 17th in the league in runs scored you kind of live and die off your pitching. When two of your starters go to the DL and one of the guys who's pitching like a Cy Young candidate gets banged up you start to worry.

I don't think you caught the sarcasm in my post?

But you're telling me. The team I root for is LAST in runs scored, so trust me, I know exactly what it takes to win a pitching duel

I don't blame the Phillies for taking him out of the game. Gotta protect one of their best assets.

I like to see the starters go deep into the game as much as the next guy, but not at the expense of the pitcher's ability to play. I don't care if the *want* to play, it's too important from a team perspective to stay healthy. One game, is, after all, only one game.

Brad Lidge is the perfect example. When he's healthy, he's got great stuff (or did, anyway) but he tries to play hurt and get's hurt worse, forcing us to rely on Madsen, Bastardo and the rest of the bullpen to close.

Not sold on the Brew Crew. One big weakness is they have trouble in the field.

Yanks are tearing it up right now - about to have 5 in a row. 16 wins out of last 20 games. 3.5 lead in the East if the score holds up in Houston.

I wonder if Mets fans were expecting another double-digit score?

Looks like the Astros can't buy a break this year.

I think some of them were. My bro-in-law loves the Mets and he swore by a double digit score. I had to remind him that it was the Yankees they were facing thus making a double digit score less likely. I wasn't surprised that Reyes continued his multi-hit streak though. Damn dude is a beast. It's a shame he only plays when he wants to, contract year

They are definitely sloppy in the field, ESPECIALLY on the road. I mean, these guys are like a totally different team on the road, and it is totally mystifying to me, and obviously Roeneke. Last year they were actually better on the road then at home (I think, I know they did pretty well on the road anyways) and this year...ugh..at least our brutal interleague schedule is finally almost done.


[QUOTE=NightAngel79;2900701]And hopefully we continue our dominance of them.

We shall see...they got a series coming up soon don't they?? It doesn't bother me losing to the reds, aas much as it does to the cubs...but that is probably because I live so close to chicago, and basically dispise all their sports teams, lol.

What's your take on Wilson's tantrum in the dugout last night? Sit the guy for a couple of nights and send him a message .... a major league time-out.

A little nuts, imo. Most guys just toss the cooler, he went overboard by fetching a bat and beating the cooler. I wonder if they'll fine/suspend him for his actions in the dugout.

He punched some Gatorade bottles with his pitching hand after that too. Luckily Affeldt saved his ass last night, considering Wilson blew the save the night before, before blowing last nights. I doubt he'll get fined/suspended/etc. No one around here is making a big deal out of it - and is seen more of humor than anything else. Also won't be sat for that. Hes the "beard." Thats just part of his personality - everyone in SF is used to it. If anything, he'll be sat only to give himself some rest and get back to where he was before the 2 blown saves.

The Reds not looking good against Cleveland.

I wish someone on the Reds would throw a tantrum or act like they care.
