Thanks for the past 3 years guys it has been fun but it is time to move on
A Place to Talk Wisconsin Sports and anything else we feel like talking about. No we won't put the Cubs game on the TV
A couple of commenters have the misconception that I think the Brewers are tanking just to piss me off
So after a weekend free from booing classless Milwaukee fans lets see how the looser more care free Corey Hart did.
Something we do not do enough as fans is give guys who sign a huge free agent contract then actually play at a level that makes them worth the money credit.
What a weekend of mixed emotions for Wisconsin sports fans.
Update: Zambrano pitches a no hitter at Miller Park vs Astros.
Lost in the Packers' win and the penultimate act of New Choke is the release of the latest college football polls. As expected, the Badgers pole-vaulted over OverratedSU (now 13th in the AP, 14th in the Coaches) and not-as-expected (except by the party-sans here) jumped past Auburn to move to 8th in both polls.
In a somewhat surprising move the Brewers did fire a manger but it wasn't Ned Yost. Instead, they let go AAA manager Frank Kremblas because the Brewers felt there was no future for him with the big league club.
The Packers go for back to back wins to start off the season and the Aaron Rogers era
Last week sucked to the tune of 6-10 ATS and 1-1 O/U, and the hard drive on the desktop is dying. Let's get this Texan-less week done quickly so you can get some dough. Yes, I did change the post time to 10:54 am from 11:44 am so I don't trip all over the Packer/Brewer open thread.
In spite of a WAC officiating Crew that had to be on the take, despite having quarterback Allen Evridge forget how to throw the ball in the second half. And they also managed to over come a couple of big plays by their host Fresno State.
Well it is not all doom and gloom here at the WSB a Badger win could go a long way to salvage the day.
A lot of good football to watch today including a huge Wisconsin Fresno State Tilt.
I cannot think of a MLB team or fan base that needed a rain out more than the Milwaukee Brewers and their fans. I hope the guys on the team put the extra night off in Philly to good use. No matter how they spent it be it at a bible study or by having 3 Asian hookers sent to their room. If it can calm then down and help loosen them up I am all for it. If it were me I would have made a bee line to Gino's to get a Cheese Steak then I would have walked across the street to Pats to have another. MMMMMMM cheese steak who needs God or Asian hookers when you can have a sandwich of grilled meat and cheese whiz ;) Not that I am bashing Asian hookers.
Suddenly it seems that a Cubs-Astros series under the dome at Miller Park is not so far-fetched.
Major League Baseball was considering moving the key series between National League Central contenders to Milwaukee on Sunday and Monday, according to two baseball sources. If the plan goes through, details, including game times and ticket procedures, would be announced Saturday.
Brewers spokesman Tyler Barnes confirmed that the team is on stand-by, and is waiting for direction from MLB.
That would be so weird to watch the team the Brewers are chasing and the one chasing the Brewers down play in Milwaukee of all places.
Near as I can tell you only need one thing and one thing only Blind Faith in the Brewers.
As all of you know probably know by know Corey Hart said they were playing "looser" since they were on the road and away from Miller Park where the mean Milwaukee fans were booing him and his teammates, while they went through the motions as they staged another September Collapse.
Too far to drive to chance having to spend all weekend sitting in the trailer.
3 and 7 will not cut it on this road trip, The Brewers have a chance to put the Phillies behind them and reel in the Cubs and get some payback on the pesky but still shitty Reds(66-80 qualifies you as shitty).
No Yankee has ever collected 3000 hits with the team. The all time leader is Lou Gehrig:
Jeter sent an 0-2 pitch from Los Angeles Angels right-hander Ervin Santana into left field for his 2,519th hit. Only Lou Gehrig (2,721) has more hits in a Yankees uniform.
Let's all just relax and enjoy a baseball game today shall we? C.C. is pitching, it's September 10th and the Brewers have a 3 game lead on a playoff spot. If it's difficult for you to find optimism in that, then you should reevaluate your life. Your entire life. If you decide it's all too much to bear, please, take Ron Santo with you.
remember, the Brewers currently have the 5th best record in all of baseball, a three game cushion on the playoffs, and CC Sabathia pitching today. And we are crying like they are on their way to 100 losses.
AKA Today's game info
Yes I am totally pissed off at the Milwaukee Brewers so I am not cutting them any slack at the moment. But it is not that much of a stretch to believe the Brewers could end the season in 4th place in the NL Central. St Louis has pulled with in 3.5 games with Houston charging hard at 4 games back.
