Morning Ramble - 11/13

Right Field BleachersCorrespondent INovember 13, 2009

Ryan Braun won his second straight Silver Slugger award, putting him with the likes of Molitor and Cooper for Brewers who have won the award in consecutive years. Congrats Brauny!

This story about a guy who worked for Lambeau for 22 years getting fired probably because of something he did or didn’t say to Mike McCarthy angers me. I’ve stood up for McCarthy in the past, but that might be ending. I’ve been very unhappy with his play calling this year, his inability to change/help the team’s flaws, and if he really was this immature and bitter after the loss to the Vikings, then that’s just ridiculous and not what you want from a leader. Even if the guy said “Don’t lay an egg”, McCarthy should have listened to him, because that’s exactly what the Packers ended up doing.

By the way, is Brandon Jennings the most intriguing athlete playing in Wisconsin at this very moment? Think of all the Packers, Badgers, and Packers and this guy is ripping the positive headlines from everyone else.
