I'm tired of these strikeouts

A dribbler to 1B would have made you feel better?

So you like Weeks at the leadoff spot?

Yeah, let's show the Yovani Gallardo collision again, because we haven't been tortured enough this afternoon.

I desperately want to find a regular spot for Gabe Kapler. Can he play third?!

The polish would wear off Kapler after about a week of starting.

I know, I know. But I'm grasping at straws and Gabe's been such a bright spot!

For now, yes, I do. They have no one else to bat there. He's the closest thing they have to a leadoff hitter. Hart is too valuable in the 5 spot to move.

IMO, he's only been batting leadoff for a few games anyway. (After the 1st inning, I considered Kendall the real "leadoff hitter" from the 9 spot.)

I had to leave for a conference call after 4 innings. I said to myself, you know, McClung's going to hit the wall pretty soon, maybe even in the fifth...the pen is pretty fresh, maybe we'll go with the quick hook this time rather than letting the game get out of reach.

People have said that McClung sucks...I don't think that's right...but his track record indicates that he's not going to give you six innings, and that anything beyond three or four is asking for trouble. Putting a player in a position where he's extremely likely to fail...that is a management failure, and I don't know how anyone can think otherwise.

Shouse can't pitch to RH hitters. He just gets crushed.

He'd need to be throwing strikes in order to get crushed

Teixeira also kind of sucks vs. lefties this year. It wasn't a bad move. Walking him was, though.

nice at-bat Accosta!

"NL Baseball: helping crooked numbers stay off the board since..."

then again, Campillo's single made the top of 5th 5 instead of 3

It would be really nice if Cox paid for that. Can the Brewers get 5?

I've got it!!

They've just been waiting for the last two innings to pull this game out in dramatic fashion again.

You've got a bullpen full of ex-starters who can go multiple innings. Why use Shouse for 2 innings?

Nothing like your #1 and #2 hitters striking out 6 times. That should ignite the offense

Bunt by bunt, I will defeat you... Kapler!


BA: Have you ever caught? For half a population, you know what he's going through right now.
Rock: Yep, on a bounce, & uh, gets 'im. That shouldn't happen on 4th of July, should it?
BA: No -- speakin' of liberty bell...

This would require a manager with foresight. However, McClung threw very well today, he was battling out there all day and threw extremely well. He just got unlucky vs. Mark there, that's all there is to it.

Nice job from the 1 & 2 hitters today. Way to spark the offense boys. 11 Ks for the team today is also very nice. If I was a Brewer opponent, I would just bring up 3 minor league pitchers (ones that have not faced the Brewers) for the series. Guaranteed sweep as the Brewers are powerless against pitchers they have never seen.
