Today’s Game: No Game Today
Record: 4-8 Fifth Place
- In the comments section of Bryan’s “Week in Review” post I mentioned how a week ago I was mostly, if not only, concerned with the pitching and how that concern is now focused on the offense. I guess that makes just about everyone.
- Tom Haudricourt previews his feature tomorrow on early season stud Todd Coffey.
- KL Snow at Brew Crew Ball asks, “Where’s the Bench?”
- Corey Hart has had a new approach to hitting thus far this year and it’s very clear. The article focuses on Hart’s opposite field approach, but what’s just as impressive in my opinion is his early season walk total. He’s already walked eight times this year. That’s already over a quarter of his walk total for all of 2008: 27. I like it!
- There’s been talk of Rickie Weeks “good” start amongst Brewers fans. This dude compares Rickie’s start to that of the other second basemen in the league and also references dictionary.com. Yup. I think it’s all relative, man. I think people are satisfied with his start simply looking at average, runs and home runs. Now, we should expect the runs, but we can also expect the walks, which haven’t been there yet. If Rickie can hover around .270 (yeah, not great, but good enough) and get the walks he has in the past, I think Brewers fans will be very happy with his numbers at the end of the year. P.S. All caps? For real. That’s just OBNOXIOUS.
- You know what one can’t argue? How good Mike Cameron has been to start the season.
- Braden Looper may be moved ahead of Manny Parra in the Brewers rotation.
- The Nashville Sounds completed the four-game sweep of the New Orleans Zephyrs (Marlins) Monday afternoon with a 4-2 win. Joe Koshansky homered for a second straight day to provide the winning run. The Sounds are now 7-5 on the young season.
- Brett Christopherson of the Appleton Post Crescent analyzes the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers early season struggles.
- Roque Mercedes is Between the Green Pillars prospect of the past week.
- Mat Gamel: Do You Know Him? Yeah, he’s that terrible fielding third basemen who will likely move to first following Prince Fielders departure, right?
- Some (enter insulting adjective here) opened a Wrigley Field inspired cemetery. Question…how is that not depressing to everyone? I guess it’s fitting as Wrigley is where dreams go to die, and people go to with the chance of dying via falling rubble.
- How could would a “little person” be at baseball? If you’ve seen Johnny Rivers throw a baseball or swing a bat, you know.
