We're getting the favoritism with the K zone today.

If Albers gets through this inning with the save I promise I won’t every make a pun out his first name again.

Not so dumb after all. He actually gets his players to play better than their talent. Did it with the Rockies too.


So does CC.

We salvaged a series win.

With all the pirates games on their calendar I mentioned back in may the brewers chances to win the division hinged on how well they played them...so far so good!

As bad as things have gone at times for much of the pitching staff, Matt Albers has now thrown scoreless innings in 12 of his last 14 appearances. He has been a bright spot.

It always seems like either we own them or they own us every season

Pitching’s been good again lately. Roller coaster Ride continues. Every other month it’s been good, so we should be good till close to the deadline, then reinforcements, and then steady good on out.

Isn't the mark of a good team that they can win when not playing their best? Despite many posters here suggesting they are gross, mediocre or SELLERS at the deadline fer gawd's sake, the Crew sits back atop the division. There's a few cylinders to fire, for sure, but the sky isn't falling just yet.

Rock: “Talk about a guy that’s due against Milwaukee, it’s Josh Bell” as Bell walks to the plate with a runner on in the 9th inning of a one run game against Matt Albers.


I'll give credit where it's due. Rock did a great job of putting the whammy on Bell there.

Great job by Albers. Three weakly hit balls, 3 outs.

Nice bounce back for Davies, nothing that special but stopped the bleeding of bad starts.

The mark of a good team is winning significantly more often than losing.

Saying the Brewers should be sellers at the deadline is silly, but saying they have been “gross” is pretty accurate.

Just playing .500 ball this month with a schedule loaded with home games and games against teams with losing records is NOT the mark of a good team. It’s more the mark of a team that blew a golden opportunity to make some headway toward a playoff run.

I always find it interesting that people base record or ranking with how well a team is. True, the Brewers are only a game back and are a few games over .500, but this team has been awful the last few weeks. Nothing is really going well and they are fortunate to be in their position at this point. They are by no means playing like a contending team.


I can understand your angst but one good thing is even tho we haven't been playing all that well for a while we are still tied for first. IMO our hitters are too good to continue to flail away like this so if we can get the rotation fixed this could be one fun second half of the season coming up.
