Brewers lineup looks like a lot of strikeouts tonight. Maybe a lot of homeruns but doubt it.

Hoping for a Villar breakout game.

Lots of strikeouts is how they like it. They led the league last year and only increased that to almost 10 k's/game this year.

I wonder why basically a whole team based on 3TO's goes through these brutal stretches

Watching meatballs go by down the middle and swinging at balls out of the strike zone....so frustrating.

Leadoff single and there he sits. Same old 2nd half Brewer baseball.

How's that any different than any other game over the past decade?

A big leaguer that's scared to throw to bases

You could've ended that sentence after batting

Nice job working out of it, but holy cow I don't know how you catch a guy halfway between 1st and 2nd for the 3rd out and just stand there and hold the ball. Incredible.

2 strikes, 2 outs. Not the worst thing to just let him take the base.

The only thing Garza can do is pitch. He can't hit, bunt or field his position.

Just for the fun of it, I counted the correct/incorrect ball and strike calls from the first inning.

In the 1st inning there were 2 incorrect strike calls against us, and 1 incorrect ball call for us, out of 9 possible calls.

In the 2nd inning there were no incorrect calls out of 3 possible calls

That is a total of 3 out of 12 incorrect, or 25%. That was one random inning one of one random game. I also did not penalize the umpire for borderline calls either way.

How people can claim this is not a problem, I do not understand.

And the way he's pitching this year, that's more than fine with me.

Wow Risario racked up a few hundred more steps on his fitbit with that route

Yeah, and if he pokes an 0-2 blooper into right field, we're down 2-0 and with the way the offense is going, that's a lot.

A rundown is almost a sure out. You throw over every time. Dozier probably breaks for home and then the infielder throws there and you deal with the rundown there. I'm glad he got out of it, but absolutely inexcusable to just eat it and make no throw.
