Obviously we can win, but the fact is the vast majority of baseball results come from the players, the manager cant control too much...except things like this. RRR is taking the 5% of the outcome that he controls and making it a negative for the Brewers. That is bad. The only plus side is we can now use Braun in a high leverage situation, but Id rather see him get 4 ABs.

I guess I do not see the purpose of a night off for Braun, isn't that what Thursday and Friday are for? And he will get even more time off if he doesn't have to fly to Arizona or Philly.

Still, if the game is close tonight, I imagine Braun will be in by the 6th or 7th inning. But the Brewers will probably render it all null by winning easily

Hairston should be at SS for Yuni not at 3B. There are 2 things you need to do with Yuni to get any benefit out of him. Don't let him hit against RHP and don't let him play defense.

Fan is short for fanatic.
I blame Wang.

And only pay him the league minimum.

My only wish in this series (other than to clinch home field of course) is that Rickie Weeks gets a HR. We need him to get his power stroke back and get it back soon! We all know when Weeks gets on a HR binge, he can carry a team. This is the perfect time for him to find his power.

Dear Rickie,
Please see the ball better over these next three days and go yard!

Sincerely,
#5 spot in the line-up

Obviously if Braun were playing, he would have caught that ball.

Playing for one run in the 1st again. I don't get it. But Roenicke is definitely predictable.

edit: See, good things can happen when you let good hitters swing away.

This is Jack Burton in the Pork Chop Express, and I'm talkin' to whoever's listenin' out there.

I think its been pretty well established Morgan bunts those on his own, not ordered from the bench

I'll take the double! Still doesn't make it right that he is batting 3rd.

If this is what happens when the Brewers give up a leadoff HR, I hope they keep doing it.

Established from what? Players besides Morgan have bunted Hart over as soon as he gets on. It's basically Roenicke's MO to bunt guys over ASAP.

Yeah we should sign Jeff Suppan to just face the first hitter of every game for us in the playoffs. He has the leadoff HR giving up credentials!
