—Manny Parra and Jorge Julio gave up a combined 10 runs (9 earned).
—At least Ryan Braun showed up: 5-for-5 with two home runs!
- Rickie Weeks’ face is having a rough April…Rickie collided with J.J. Hardy’s shoulder and was taken out due to dizziness. You know it must have been a shot if he was taken out from that and not being hit in the FACE!!
—Corey Provus has a mailbag. I love that he’s kind of an ass to one of the fans that sent him an e-mail.
—Parra in underachieving. I don’t know what’s going on…if he’s just not controlling his pitches or what, but the Brewers need him right and fast…and I’m sure you will see more opinions like this in the coming days.
—Man, Bleacher Report is going to hate me…Some guy who isn’t an 8th grader is asking for a catching platoon. First of all, doesn’t a platoon require one player who can hit left handed and another who can hit right handed? Secondly, most people understand Kendall isn’t known for his bat. He’s known for helping young pitchers through hard times and playing solid defense.
—These guys at Brewerfan are just a little faster than I am, comparing Coffey to former closer Dan Kolb. I had a small blurb in an upcoming post about a Brewer fan thinking that Todd Coffey was the second coming of Dan Kolb.
—The Love of Sports blog lists their favorite batting stances and Craig Counsell is numero uno! He even beat out Jeff Bagwell…impressive.
—FYI, it was April 21, 1982 that Rollie Fingers became the first pitcher to save 300 games.
—Mat Gamel leads the Sounds to their fifth straight win…Chase Wright pitched well, also.
—Hoffman isn’t coming to Appleton. I didn’t think he was.
—Still hungry for T-Rats? How about a video preview?
—Has TGJ finally realized he needs to step it up? Here’s hoping.
—Cubs Cemetery? Is that what happened to Andre Dawson because, man, I haven’t heard heads or tails from the guy for years
—Lance Berkman (or Fat Bam Margera) is in an “uncharacteristic slump.” What a tick…didn’t he slump most of 2007?
—This is embarrassing. Not only did the Pirates sell only 8,700 tickets, but only 4,500 went through the turnstiles.
—Free Matt Murton? Geoff Jenkins says “Be glad you have a job, kid.”
