Weekly Record: 2-4

Current Record: 2-4


  • Winning the home opener
  • Rickie Weeks scoring runs
  • The Brewers ability to get the starters out quickly
  • Not too many Cubs fans at the home opener


  • Tons of the loud and annoying variety of Cubs' fans on Saturday.
  • Losing opening day and the opening series and home opener series.
  • Hardy hitting behind Fielder and this is one reason why: If there’s one out and first is open, teams have walked Prince. Then JJ comes up instead of the speedy Corey Hart. Let’s say the pitcher does his job and gets a ground ball. With Prince and JJ running, two of the slowest members of the team, it’s basically an easy double play.
  • Suppan…sigh…picking up where you left off, I see.
  • Prince and Braun getting the chance to win or tie the game Saturday and Sunday and not doing it.
