I strongly disagree with rickh about you shouldn't sell tickets to Cubs fans or whatever but I do agree with him that if you live within reasonable distance to Miller Park then you kind of forfeit the right to complain about all the Cubs fans at Miller Park on a message board while the game is going on.


I see no problem selling tickets to Cubs fans, I do it often enough with my 20 pack...helps me pay for it. They'll find their way in if they want to get in, whether it's my tickets or someone elses or buying from the brewers ticket office.

One other kick I got out of this game(along with every other Cubs game) is how excited their fans get for medium deep fly balls. I remember one specific one yesterday, clearly off the trademark based on the sound...extremely loud cheers as Braun jogs in maybe 20 feet and makes a routine catch. You would think after a while, even a fringe intelligent human being would figure out the difference between a HR and a shallow-medium deep fly ball.

Changing the prices of tickets will do a thing. This is a simple numbers game. A very tiny fan base from a small market up against possibly the league's largest fan base from a gigantic metro area that practically spills into its own. They will always be at the games. The subject is so played out.


So take advantage of it and jack the tickets for Brewers/Cubs game up to $200 for terrace reserve seats and $50 for general parking. Bleed them dry if they want to come.

I found it odd that the game wasn't sold out and that the market price on SH for tickets to the game was fairly low. Wasn't like the Cubs fans paid premium on SH. While our attendance is over $1 million, the supply and demand pressures mean that Brewer ticket prices must be kept low, thus the $5 seats and the $20 bucks for 6 tickets packages that pack fans into the seats. The Indians marker, even smaller, has less price pressures and can get above face value premiums because the product is more sustained. But the brewer market will gain steam if we keep winning. One more player pickup prior to trading deadline (an ace preferred) may push us into a divisional championship.

He's telling the 2B who isn't looking back at the infield that the runner is coming and he needs to tag him. That's his JOB as a SS in that situation.

I didn't really see an issue with this either. If he can't handle the added pressure of being told a runner is coming to 2nd, exactly what level of pressure can he handle? Is he going to completely miss the ball in a late September or October game? That's an absolutely dreadful excuse for making a mistake...

I think restricting ticket sales to in-state credit cards is needed to protect your home from invasion. Thats what the astros do and other teams. Something has to be done. its embarrassing and damaging to the product.

It's obviously a bad drop by Villar but I don't think it was a mental lapse or anything. He was trying to get the tag down as quickly as he could because he didn't know how close Zobrist was to the base. If he knew how far away Zobrist was, he obviously would've taken more time to make sure he had the ball.

37 yo runner tagging at first, and our MLB 2nd baseman doesn't know where he is? I could have been blindfolded and told you that Zobrist wasn't close to the bag. A gifted double play but a second baseman who fell asleep and wasn't focused. That said, Villar did homer previously and was about the only batter who wasn't crapping his pants against a very lame Quintana who would have a 7.0 ERA minus the brewer games.


He's got his back turned waiting for the ball. Why would you think he knows where he is? When he has Arcia screaming tag! tag! tag! at him I would assume that it's going to be a close play. When I was watching I was shocked at how far away from the base Zobrist was.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

Funny thing, I was there, front row taking the heckling in the 11th. You? Probably flying the ol Cubs W flag... congrats on the win and net cash, by the way.


I live a 3 hour drive from Miller Park and still go to 5-6 games a year. I have a family of 5 with two toddlers and I am the sole income provider for the 5 of us at about 60 hours a week. This is the most I can afford to invest in both time and money. Hope it is okay with you.


Don’t go down this hole with him. He seems to be permanently stuck down there on a few issues and wants to drag as many as he can. I’ve nicknamed him Pennywise for myself to remind myself to just laugh at 99% of this crap.


I'm in the same boat as Adam.... get to about 10 games a year, with kids, won't get season tickets because of cost. I just personally think selling to the enemy is something that a good fan base should not get caught up in; usually, the best seats go to the Cubs fans (saw good support from Brewers fans in nice seats Mon., though)... guessing you won't give a nickname to adam, though.

I don't necessarily think Villar was making excuses for his flub, just going through what happened. But in general I agree, it's the big leagues, pressure comes with the job. In the end Villar's misplay paired with Hader's inability to retire Hayward in a lefty vs. lefty matchup only resulted in 1 run. It was a big run but it didn't kill the Brewers chances to win the game.

What kind of irks me is when you read the AP game recap Zobrist's decision to tag up from first base isn't even mentioned. If Villar fields it cleanly Zobrist is out by a mile and how much are Cubs fans crying out for Zobrist to be benched for that decision? The only reason it looks good is because it worked, but it was a terrible base running play in my book. The one sliver of hope in the decision process is you force the defense to execute, which ultimately they didn't, but it wasn't going to be a close play, it was entirely reliant on a bad throw or bobble. I'm not sure you go for broke in the top of the 8th just to get 2nd base on a 1st out fly out and risk 2 outs nobody on.

And you might as well make a little money on the side while they come, right? The logic of one who sells out.

Not to go directly at you, sir, but the urban dictionary has this to say about a sellout....,

You can't stop them from coming.... but come on, the front office could literally could get tickets into Brewers fans hands easily and at the game if Brewers fans wouldn't flip them.... root problem.

How many people would actually be at this game?

Look, no way in hell is he close to second base. I could have known that with a blindfold on. Certainly, I don't need Arcia to be crying as Villar said (odd for him to say that). Zobrist is 37 years old. It was a completely asinine decision by him to run. Speedsters like Cain wouldn't even tag up. Zobrist must have seen the mass confusion out in the outfield between Yelich and Cain and figured that maybe Cain wouldn't be on the pivoted foot to get a lot on the throw. While Zobrist was partially correct as Cain didn't get as much on the throw as he could have, everyone in the stands knew the 37 yo Zobrist simply was a gifted double play and poor base running and not EVER be close to second. Nobody ever is, never mind a old guy like Zobrist. Certainly, Villar didn't need Arcia screaming at him. That said, the ball was there in plenty of time, and Villar panicked and assumed Zobrist was Bob Hayes and he dropped the ball.
Sad.

Sad.

What Arcia did by yelling "tag!" is how baseball players across all talent levels play the game. They communicate, often in one word phrases.

Like I said, it's rare for a guy to try to take 2nd on a fly out. Arcia should just keep his yap shut? That's insane. These guys don't have time to shout a full sentence of information to each other, yelling "tag!" expresses exactly what's going on to the defender that has his back to the play while waiting to receive the ball.

It's not an excuse for dropping the ball. Blame Villar, sure. Blame Arcia? That's extreme reaching.

And "cry" is a synonym for yell or shout. English is not Villar's first language, it's understandable he might not use the exact word a native speaker would in that situation.
