I guess MAYBE not using Pomeranz makes sense, if he's assuming he will need him to be the long man after Davies almost assuredly gets shelled early tomorrow. But even still, could have/should have manged the BP situation MUCH better in that inning.

This is true, and it sucks. Well, sabermetrics is what it is (it can't suck, it's just numbers)...it's the truth that sucks and makes for boring baseball.[/quote

No arguments from me on this point. I wonder how long it will take MLB to figure this out? It seems they can’t move past the “dingerz=eyeballs” business model.

What is best in life? To crush the Cardinals, Cubs, and Manny Machado, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their fanboys.

A bunt down third I would have advocated here being down two. There is no one even close

Good grief. If anyone in the Brewers bullpen throws that pitch, it’s still flying. What a season...

No idea how Yelich of all people misses that pitch. Baffling.

But for beating up on the Pirates the Brewers would be a losing club.

Over all our pitching stinks and was priority 1 at the deadline, but man our offence is pathetic . We can make mediocre pitches look like cy young. Homerun or nothing. It's seems to be this way for the most forever.

This game was a microcosm of the Brewers' season. Offense not taking care of opportunities, and a bullpen that is on razor wire.

Two steps forward and two steps back with this team, it continues to be that way the entire summer. Just when you think they might be starting to come out of it they have a couple bad losses and go right back into the ditch.

I don't see more than 85 wins out of this bunch. When it's August and you still don't even have a positive run differential...you probably are what you are.

Really trash loss. Hader is underwhelming lately.

Ehh ... crappy loss, but tomorrow is a new day. Take out the trash at Wrigley this weekend, and all is forgiven.

I tire a little of hearing the "he's the most valuable reliever in MLB and it's not close" statement.

He's great. But this is hyperbole. He's not perfect.

Move the fences waaaayyy back and don't count foul balls as strikes. Might get contact back into the game.


It's infuriating that they have allowed the game to get so boring when there are easy solutions available. At the very least they need to make it easier to steal bases.

All I ask for is one...just one 6 or 7 game winning streak the rest of the way...that could be enough right there. Start this weekend, please...wait...nevermind, Davies pitches tomorrow...not going to happen.

Just realised how poor Yaz batting average has been for the last 30 games.
Was hitting .211 for the last 30 games going into today.
Decent OBP though .360.

This is still true. Lots of time to get hot. Take at least 2/3 from the Cubs this weekend and all is well enough.

Finding ways to lose....I would say the last two years we've been overachieving and this year is just averaging the situation out. I get the lack of talent and failure/ injuries with the pitching but the offense continually has no excuse. Stearns, I'm sure was relying on the offense to bail out the pitching and it simply hasn't been happening.
