Mike Cameron will not play Saturday. He’ll instead, serve the newly-reduced one-game suspension doled out by Major League Baseball aftering hearing his appeal. I imagine the appeals committee figured it’d be a greater punnishment for Cameron - who’s hitting more like Kirk Cameron of late - to suit up an additional game opposed to missing two.
Other shit (in order of ascending boner-size)
8=D Miller Park flooded. No major damage. Watch the Brewers cut up and sell the ruined clubhouse carpet as “2008 Wild Card-clinching carpet” and thousands of losers shell out cash better served buying a pink Brewers Hulk beer coozy. Tragic.
8==D How can modern day stadiums in the Midwest NOT have a retractable roof? After the Metrodome is mercifully late-term aborted after this season, Miller Park will be the only stadium in the greater Midwest with the luxury of a roof. These constant rain delays have been really testing me patience/gangsta the past few weeks. Most of the afore-mentioned cities boast gorgeous parks, but I find the most attractive quality in ballpark to be its ability to routinely host unimpeded sporting contests. Just me?
8===D Jon Heyman reports the Brewers were among those in attendance to watch Pedro Martinez work out. Pedro, who is ancient and totally slurped pud when he last pitched professionally, says he feels great. I’d feel great if I had a Jerry Curl and was about to trick some team into paying $4M for a few months of (likely shoddy) labor.
8====D Speaking of ancient arms not worth Milwaukee’s time or money, Tom Glavine has fessed up to his inability to pitch (in 2009) and spared me having to read more half-baked explainations to how he’d help Milwaukee. He won’t try to come back until 2010 [Via Tom Haudricourt's Twitter].
8=====D—- (V) Miller Park Drunk is fast becoming my favorite Brewers blog. The latest numbers post indicates he’s registered 5,000 + visitors so far this month. Be sure to help that number climb by reading ”Drunk”’s funny, insightful and blurry take on the Brewers. Befriend them on Facebook for a chance to win tickets, we have. Oh yeah, befriend Right Field Bleachers too.
That’s all for now. I’ll post a “Weekend at Bernie’s” if I feel like it, which I probably won’t.
