    Haudricourt says they're not doing BP. Changing it up to change their luck.

    Also changing things up... Elian Herrera in at 2B, Jason Rogers in at 3B, and Logan Schafer at CF for the start of the game. Maldonado obviously in for Lucroy with Centeno the backup.

    I said this (almost) exact thing to my mother after they scored their first 4 runs. I should've called her back later after they gave up the second grand slam and said... "oh, now I remember".

    Moral victories are for losers, but hey,. they're losers right now. Scoring 10 runs was a big bright spot for an offense that has been stagnant.

    I picked a bad time to watch my first game in 2 weeks.

    I think the Brewers should buy my tickets for the rest of the season if they know what's good for them. Good game all around yesterday.

    My biggest complaint is they no longer have the Double Clutch stand (or maybe it's just not in the same place).

    This team badly needs a new GM and a fresh start. I figured this would be a .500 ball club that wouldn't make the playoffs and they likely aren't even going to get there. I could take that on its own but this club has no clear direction and only has 2 real assets they can sell (and they probably won't).

    I was going to ask if anyone had gone and seen the Double Clutch stand. I didn't see them blogging about it this season.

    I have yet to watch a moment of Brewers baseball this season. This has never happened before. I can't remember the last opening day I missed let alone 2.5 weeks of the season.

    It started as I was out of the country for the first week of the season and then when I got home, I had other things going on and their crappy start didn't exactly make me want to make time for them.


    Have to say I'm rather enjoying their season more than I'd have thought possible considering how they're doing.


    I'm guessing I'll have to ruin that by actually watching at some point...

    It's one thing to watch/follow a struggling team in other sports.

    Baseball is a whole other deal as the losses can (and do) happen every day. It gets to be quite punishing...

    Re: 2017 Milwaukee Brewers, Back to Back Champions!

    um, I should be clear that when I said I hadn't watched a Brewers game in 2 weeks, it's because I'm recovering from a concussion and I can't watch TV. Not because of how they're playing. That has never been a variable that matters to me, even a little bit. I've listened to every single game on the radio.

    The Double Clutch stand isn't on the Club level either, unless there is some link between an Apple-Brie Panini thingy and Cincinnati that I don't know about. We also noticed the cheese fries thing - but I didn't walk around to see where they moved.

    I'm not avoiding them because of the level of play. I was more commenting on my surprise at myself that I haven't seen anything yet. It's unprecedented.

    Just haven't been motivated to seek them out just yet as I was on a trip and when I got home there were Blackhawks games to watch, my kid has had 4 lacrosse games and I've had my own hockey to play.


    Of course, that said, If they were tearing it up, I'd have found time and be dvr'ing.


    I'll get to them... probably this weekend.

    Re: 2017 Milwaukee Brewers, Back to Back Champions!

    Thinking about it, I've not been watching as much as I was last year. Caught a couple of the day games on the XM radio on the way home from work, and maybe watched a game or two on MLB.tv but that's it.


    Not sure what's wrong with the team. I'd love to pinpoint one area, but there just isn't. It's almost as if it's "Pitching / Fielding / Hitting, Pick only two."

    Is Ron Roenicke the problem? I don't think so. He's the fourth winning bench boss in Brewers history (not including Sveum's 13 game stint in 2008). He's wrung out a lot from what the team has given him.

    Is it Doug Melvin? I don't know too many GM's who can assemble a competitive roster with the tight financial constraints; but the checkbook seemed to be more open the past few years and there hasn't been much to show for it.

    Is it the bullpen and hitting coaches? I did hear an interesting tidbit that said the Brewers were last in the league in "Strikeouts Looking" for 2014, and they were leading the league in 2015. Garza's made some tin-foil hat speculation that the pitchers are tipping their pitches and need to fix that.


    What a weird start to the season.

    No Braun, no Ramirez, no Maldonado - no problem. Baseball is a funny game. Brewers beat the Cardinals using only 3 of their regular starters. Sounded like Fiers got in a lot of trouble - but got out of it. Jeffress pitched well again.

    Oakland and TB have done a better job of consistently fielding a competitive team imo. I think we're seeing the results of the win now moves in 2011 and now we have an old mediocre team without much (above league average) pitching talent. I get why we traded for Marcum in 2011 but come playoff time that move basically blew up in our face unfortunately, given that it was the highest amount of innings he ever threw in a season. Don't do that and we likely still have Brett Lawrie. The Greinke move got rid of a bunch of young talent including Odorizzi, in the end I can't really disagree with that move though.

    I think the Brewers need to look at rebuilding and stop deluding themselves into thinking this roster (or even last year's) was good enough to win the division. Doug might be the guy to do it but I'm becoming skeptical. Just too many bad moves during his tenure and not enough consistency in terms of drafting or developing young talent, especially at the mound.

    Good news! Ryan Braun hits his second dinger of the season!

    Bad news! Brewers ring up their 17th "L" of the young season.



    Team isn't quitting. Of the last nine games, they've scored at least one run in the last three innings in five of those games (11 runs scored total in the last three innings of those five games).

    Just need to stop digging a hole first.
