    On the bright side (maybe), Aramis Ramirez is back tonight. Man, it sucks getting old.

    On the DEFINITE bright side, Brian Anderson is also back tonight. I don't mind Matt Lepay (1000x better than Craig Coshun), but I miss the chemistry between Rock and BA.

    The one where he closed his eyes against the Phillies and swung was amazing. That said this one is my favorite

    Lepay is actually fairly decent. I like BA (well, this BA), but his HR call is so grating.

    Scooter sent down. Brewers beat Tigers; due to lose 14-1 tonight.

    Jeremy Jeffress has been fantastic.

    Just noticed I get to see Fiers vs. Shelby Miller at Turner Field on Saturday. Yippee.

    Scooter who? This Sardiñas kid is the real deal.


    I kid, I kid. But boy is it nice to have some call-ups produce for the Brewers, and they're kids from the Yovani trade too (I still miss him, but alas). Speaking of Sardinas, maybe I've blacked out some of the awful players in between, but is he the first Brewer to have the ñ since Fernando Vina?

    I guess they had this guy for all of 58 plate appearances: http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx...43&position=2B

    I just sorted on Brewers between 2000 and 2010 and he was the only one I noticed (fangraphs doesn't have the ñ so you have to kinda guess based on the name).

    The probably universal pitching mixture of rosin and sunscreen, supposedly. Many pitchers do it, but you definitely have to be more discrete than he was.

    Yeah, that was crazy obvious. Silly.

    That being said, he's no villain. Pitchers pull this stuff all the time. Blyleven has often said "If you're not cheating, you're not trying hard enough."

    Peralta out at least 4 weeks.

    Segura due to come back Friday, and Lucroy hopefully on Monday, so that's good at least.

    No word on what they're going to do with the rotation.

    This makes me think that he honestly did forget about it.

    It makes me sad that he's gonnna get booed at Turner Field for the rest of his career, though.

    He already hated that place going into last weekend, it was at Turner Field a year ago that he was summoned from the bullpen without any warm up throws.



    So, my earlier praise for Sardiñas? Yeeeeeeeaaaaaahhhhhh..... Woof. What a rough week the kid has had. Tough Braves series and a rough game yesterday.

    Only bright spot? I've now been to the games where home runs from Cecil Fielder cleared County Stadium and now Ryan Braun cleared Miller Park.

    Yesterday was a great game to be at until the top of the sixth.

    Any word yet on what they're going to do with Peralta's spot in the rotation? Interesting that they called up a reliever - wonder how long he'll stay. They could start Fiers on short rest, then bump him up to 3 and Nelson 4, and not need someone until.. Wednesday?

    He's a Georgia boy who grew up rooting for the Braves, so I imagine there's some sentimental value.. plus his family is usually there. poor guy shouldn't get booed in front of his mother.

    Per FS-Wisconsin just now (even though pretty much everyone who reads this thread was likely watching the game): David Goforth was called up. Fiers gets Peralta's start tomorrow. A replacement starter will get called up, but no commitment on who it is.

    Rotation order: Fiers tomorrow, off day Thursday, Nelson on Friday, Lohse Saturday, and the rumored call-up goes Sunday (as of right now the call-up would get Tuesday vs Cardinals if the existing rotation holds).

    Peralta will be out for four to six weeks.

    Can I blame this season on the stupid Bud Selig Experience they built in left field?

    The Bud Selig Experience? Is that anything like the monstrosity they have at the Marlins' stadium that swings into action every time Stanton hits one halfway to Puerto Rico?

    It's an interactive exhibit they put on the second level concourse just past left field (above the TGI Fridays) where you too can learn how to move an MLB team from Seattle to Milwaukee in the middle of the night.

    (For the record, I'm just fine with stealing the Seattle Pilots. I really do appreciate Bud Selig's role in bringing the MLB back to Milwaukee. But his later era of ownership (including his daughter being named the owner when he still ran it even though he was the commissioner) just makes me shrug my shoulders. This isn't something I know most Brewer fans will be flocking to.)
