Thursday’s Game

Braden Looper was far from sharp in his Cactus League debut, surrendering five ER in just two frames of work. But a 3-for-4 day and a homer from J.J. Hardy, along with dingers by Mike Lamb and Mike Cameron, was enough to push the Brewers past the Rangers. Casey McGehee went 0-for-1.

Rattler-Radio gives us an early look at the T-Rats’ new video board: For many of us, this will be the least blurry we’ll ever see it. I can’t wait for dollar beer nights.

Lastly, I know many other Web sites have touch on this, but we hadn’t yet and I wanted to make mention of baseball writer John Brattain’s untimely death.

I’d never met or interacted with John, but through my brief stint at Baseball Digest Daily (now Baseball Daily Digest), one of the many site’s he wrote for, I became exposed to his work. I won’t pretend to know him enough (or at all) to have been personally impacted by his passing, but I can be sure his wife and two daughters are going through a very difficult time right now.

The Hardball Times has established a memorial fund in John’s honor. All proceeds will go to his family.
