Weekly Record: 5-2
Current Record: 18-14
- Ryan Braun being a juggernaut…we are truly watching something special with this guy. You know he’s the Man when you’re upset that he doesn’t hit the game winner
- Winning both close games and also blowing out the opponent.
- Seeing Fukudome whiff…to be honest, I wouldn’t care what team this guy’s on…his swing when he misses is so ugly that it just makes me smile.
- 17 straight against the Pirates
- Bullpen seemingly much stronger with Hoffman closing things
- Carlos Corporan getting his first hit
- Corey Hart looking lost
- Jorge Julio looking more and more expendable

I had a discussion about with another fan after yesterday’s loss about which Brewer would you most want up with runners in scoring position and two outs besides Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder. For full disclosure, he said Craig Counsell and I said Corey Hart. Then I said I wouldn’t want J.J. Hardy and he said he wouldn’t want Rickie Weeks. That discussion made me look at the Brewers starters batting average and OPS with runners in scoring position and two outs. Here’s the results from highest average to lowest average:
