an interesting view of the brewers last several weeks. two games stick out. the 3-2 loss in san diego where the brewers were looking squeak one out only to have the bullpen throw it away. and then the 9-1 blowout against the cards where the crew looked like they were in a daze the entire game.
i know most figure milwaukee are just finding their ‘true talent level’. that is one possibly true
but if you actually watched the games you didn’t see anything but a group of players who not only performed as if the game was somewhat strange to them but that they hardly knew one another. there has been little to no coordinated effort other than to be inept.
it’s been tough to watch. to not even be competitive most nights

ron is considered too passive by man brewers fans so this outburst is surprising.
“Roenicke was ejected by home-plate umpire Mark Ripperger in the aftermath of the game-tying home run hit by Padres catcher Rene Rivera off Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth.
The homer came on just the third pitch thrown by Rodriguez, who fell behind Rivera, 2-0. Rodriguez eventually got out of that ninth, but it was a tough pill to swallow for a Brewers team that fought to take a 2-0 lead in the seventh only to eventually give it back late.
Rivera then beat the Brewers with a walk-off single off Zach Duke in the 10th.
Asked about Ripperger in the minutes following the loss, Roenicke didn’t hold back. Ripperger, as it turns out, was behind the plate for one previous Brewers game this season, a 5-2 victory over the New York Mets at Miller Park on July
“This is the thing that bothers me: this is the same umpire that we had before, and he is terrible behind home plate,” he said. “He calls pitches that aren’t even close. The catcher sets up six inches off the plate and he calls them strikes. I should have been kicked out the last time that we saw him. He was behind the plate,
“I’m tired of sitting here watching the catcher set up off the plate and hitting his glove and (the umpire) calling it a strike. They’re balls. So Frankie misses, OK, it’s off the plate this much, the first one he calls a ball. He’s been calling it all night. The next one was a little further off, but he’s been calling that also. Just call the same pitches, but they’re balls.
“I should have been kicked out in probably the second inning today. It’s the same guy.”
(i appreciate all the tips on how to distinguish my comments from the article but i confess that is too complicated for me. sorry. i don’t understand why the old way had to go away. that was very straightforward and worked. this is just beyond me)

In an effort to better appeal to budding baseball fans, the Brewers this week introduced the “Brewers Creative Council,” a team of young professionals that will help develop and evaluate future promotions and marketing strategies
The council includes David Cohn of the Wisconsin State Golf Association, Josh Derouin of PKWARE, Lauren Hill of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Arthur Ircink of Wisconsin Foodie, Tarik Moody of 88Nine RadioMilwaukee, Andy Nelson of the Pabst Theater Group, Kathryn Reinardy of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and Joel Tilleson of Falk Legal Group.
//someone in orchestra is going to have ideas on how to connect with young people???

The season series finale was a 7-2 Brewers rout on a sun-splashed Sunday at Dodger Stadium, with Lucroy logging five RBIs in the first two innings and Peralta working six scoreless innings to tie for the Major League lead with his 15th victory.
The National League Central-leading Brewers defeated the NL West-leading Dodgers five times in six games over a span of 10 days, with Dodgers aces Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke starting four of the games for Los Angeles. The Brewers took two of three last weekend at Miller Park before dealing the Dodgers their first losing sweep in a series of more than two games all season.
Now the teams are tied atop the National League with 70 wins apiece.
//lucroy has been scuffling. maybe today his bat got its second wind

Just awful. Nothing else to say.

A true deathmatch. Personally, I’m disappointed: if the game had gone only one more inning, Adam LaRoche would have made his Major League pitching debut for the Washington Nationals.

Milwaukee swept the Rockies to finish 6-1 on a road trip that started in Arizona. The Brewers’ 27-15 record and .643 winning percentage away from home is the best in the majors.
Milwaukee also has the best record in the National League.

Only injured players Ryan Braun and Jean Segura were left on the bench by game’s end and every reliever in the bullpen other than seldom-used Wei-Chung Wang saw action in the game. Third baseman Aramis Ramirez (bruised elbow) joined the casualty list before the night was done but the Brewers still found a way to prevail.
This blog entry is more interesting than the game recap. and it highlights the dumb nickname convention that exists in baseball today. just horrible. you want to know why there are no good nicknames? because managers speak in baby talk toward their players. rami? RAMI???

from the article: Lohse allowed one run on four singles and no walks, throwing 76 pitches for strikes and leading his team to a 10-2 record (best in baseball) in just two hours and 11 minutes.
really strong defensive work from the brewers this past weekend. multiple nice plays all over the field both infield and outfield. Reynolds started a nifty 3-6-3 double play on Friday night and logan Schafer made a beauty of a catch in left on sunday on an alvarez fly ball where logan crashed into the wall as he was making the catch. just a really swell play
the only nuisance factor in the current winning streak is that ron has these guys still running into outs on the bases. and the combination of gomez and sedar (3rd base coach) is sure to trigger another stroke as carlos is beyond eager to get the extra base and eddie has never met a preordained to fail dash to home plate he wasn’t willing to risk.
but go crew!
