"Excuse me. Do you know where our offense went?"

Wednesday’s Game: Brewers 2, Rockies 4
Record: 33-25, 1st Place

Wednesday’s Game

- Red hot Rockies take another one from the Brewers at Miller Park. That shouldn’t happen. Where’s the offense? Did the Rockies bring the humidor to Milwaukee?

- The Brewers left eight players on base and went 2-12 with RISP. The Brewers are dying by the long ball now.

- Newbie Chris Smith pitched two innings of no hit ball in relief.

- Jorge De La Rosa got his second win of the year. That chaps my caboose.

Brewers News

- Day two of the draft was today and here’s the list of players the Brewers chose:
Steven Hall - Pick 136 - RHP - 18 Years Old - Can already throw a 91 MPH fastball
D’Vonteray Richardson - Pick 166 - RF - 20 Years Old
Hiram Burgos - Pick 196 - RHP - 21 Years Old
Khristopher Davis - Pick 226 - RF - 21 Years Old
Chadwin Stang - Pick 256 - LF - 20 Years Old
Jonathan Pokorny - Pick 286 - LHP - 21 Years Old
That’s it through the top 300…the rest you can find here.

- There’s a new Web site all about Ryan Braun. It’s titled “King of Swagger”. The design on the site is cool, but what is with fans and their need to make everyone royalty?

- Ryan Braun reportedly turned down a chance to go on the Bachelor. Smart choice.

- Chuckie Hacks found Josh Prince…but not really.

- Is it time to think about platooning Corey Hart with McGehee or Gerut?

NL Central

- The Pirates beat the Braves, Houston beat the Cubs, the Cards killed the Marlins, and the Reds beat Washington.

- The Pirates acquired Chris Snelling. Moving on.

- Heath Bell to the Cubs? Another question turned “rumor” by Eli.

Other News

- You may have noticed all the wussies players on the DL with personal problems. FOX Sports says it’s about time.

- Good reading for Pedro Cerrano (and apparently Cameron Garfield)
