Weekly Record: 5-2
Current Record: 74-75
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.
Monday: Suppan good, but Flippy Magoo (Dumpster Dempster) better (L)
Tuesday: Cubs get a 5 run 6th the blow the game wide open…this blows (L)
Wednesday: Alcides and Corey give Loop even more run support..can David Patten always throw against the Brewers?(W)
Thursday: Jody “Shake Ya Groove Thing” Gerut hits a grand tater..bullpen holds! (W)
Friday: Great come from behind win…McGehee deserves more pub (W)
Saturday: Prince passes Cecil (Cooper), Suppan was strong (W)
Sunday: Prince passes Burnitz, Yovani finally gets run support, but doesn’t need it as the pitching staff dominates for the sweep(W)
Sweeping the Astros
Winning 5 in a row…but it’s a little late to finally get the hot streak
Prince Fielder breaking records and Yovani getting to 200 K’s
One loss away from being mathematically eliminated
Poor Counsell finally looks tired out
I realized during the semi-empty bobblehead game on Sunday just how amazing and electric it was last September…
Good for the Week
Jody Gerut has been beaten up all year, but finally has something to smile about. This week, Jody has hit .583 with 2 home runs, 8 RBI’s and more total bases than any other player (and he played in two fewer games)
Goat for the Week
The offensive offense from the catchers…we’re pretty sure Kendall isn’t coming back, but Rivera hasn’t inspired much confidence either.

Prince is trying to play in all 162 games…Carlos Lee was the last Brewer to do it in 2005. Prince Fielder is also trying to START every game…Richie Sexson in 2003 was the last Brewer to do that feat.
Something to Think About:
What would have happened if Prince would have had THIS year’s stats last year? What would have happened if Braun would have hit over .300 last year? What would have happened if Cameron had a full season? What would have happened if Yovani didn’t get hurt and we had the rotation of Sabathia, Sheets, Gallardo going into the playoffs?The “if’s” drive me absolutley batty.
