In Review

Weekly Record: 3-3

Current Record: 69-73

I’m introducing my own September call-ups; I’m trying out new sections for next year and seeing how they play. Let me know what scores and what sucks.

A Glance:
Monday: One hit? One goddamm hit? (L)
Tuesday: Almost…so close…man, Holliday is on a tear (L)
Wednesday: Awful series…Uncle! We give… (L)
Thursday: Well…at least the Brewers are having a better season than the D-Backs. It’s amazing that Cardinals football is a bigger draw than D-Backs baseball
Friday: Played with a lead and held it? Holy Crap! Braun’s 100th (W)
Saturday: McGehee went OFF! He said “As if I shouldn’t be in the ROY running” (W)
Sunday: Come from behind and a road series sweep! Finally…Mark Schlereth’s son having a rough time in the majors. (W)


Beating a team the Brewers are supposed to beat

Winning a game that Chris Narveson started…I didn’t think it would be possible

Casey McGehee against Diamondbacks pitching


St. Louis pitching owning the Brewers down the stretch

St. Louis getting just enough offense down the stretch

St. Louis being the team to represent the NL Central in the playoffs most likely

Good for the Week

Casey McGehee followed his great week last week with another strong showing hitting .385 and knocking in 7 RBI’s.

Goat for the Week

Corey Hart had a rough week back getting only one hit and has yet to show that he isn’t  late season slumper

Quick Hitter:

Braun is the second fastest player to hit 100 HR’s. The first? Ryan Howard. Braun is currently 18th on the Brewers all time HR leaderboard about to past Sixto.

Something to Think About:

I’m seriously worried about my buddy Todd Coffey for next year. In 2006, Todd pitched 78 innings in 81 games and did well posting a 3.58 ERA in the launching pad that is Great American Ball Park. However, the next year he only threw 51 innings and gave up more earned runs in 2007 than all of 2006, and it showed with a 5.82 ERA. Todd is at 74 innings this year. I’m just worried about him.
