Our team is in first place at the quarter mark of the season, and I get to read multiple posts/posters complaining that they're doing it with the wrong guys, wrong batting order, etc. They're on fire, getting great production, winning exciting games, and it just isn't good enough. I feel like there is a distinct demographic here that aren't necessarily baseball/Brewer fans...but look at the season as one of those GM sim games. It's not a real win if Sogard plays because he shouldn't be good. Broxton's hot streak doesn't matter because he's losing ABs in the 7 hole. Garza is terrible, it doesn't matter what the results show. They're winning, their offense is amazing, the pitching adds all the drama one could ask for. At some point this season, it's probably all going to go off the rails, and they'll be miserable to watch. Until then, enjoy it, we're Brewers fans, this isn't exactly normal.


I know one or two posters that fit the description! It gets old and tiring.

All true! Even if this isn't the way some of us would have drawn it up, they're winning! Do I consider it flukey? I do. Are there weaknesses on the team? Yes.

But it's a much better place today than 90 miles south, with a team that was expected to dominate for years to come, playing far below expectations.

I'm going to enjoy this run, if it lasts until today, or all year. That said-- I wouldn't want a message board to have everybody posting only happy thoughts.

But it's a fine day when the Brewers are winning.

I don't understand the big deal about graduations. I didn't go to my college graduation and would have skipped my high school graduation if my mom let me. Graduation parties on the other hand, those are a must have.

Way down thread, somebody brought up the idea of a mute button for certain sports announcers. This is an idea I'd like to see. I would love to be able to turn off the announcers and just hear the game and crowd. I don't need somebody to tell me what is happening all the time, constantly babbling. I have eyes and I understand sports.

Not one but two local newscast showing the extended bullpen dance-off video as opposed to numerous other sports stories in the area that could have been covered.

Today the Brewers are MLB.com's free game of the day. Every other person in the universe can watch this game, with our without cable, but those in this viewing area cannot watch it because of local blackout restrictions. At least I can listen to the game on my computer at work. Still irritated.
