****ing Amateurs...

Tonight the pain hurts...too much. I was looking forward to tonight's Brewers v. Phillies game for a few reasons. First of all, the wife and I went camping this past weekend up in Olympic National Forest, and missed all but 3 innings of the Brewers/Mets series. Second of all, 4 days (during the season) without baseball is too much for me to handle. Also, the wife worked during the day today, so our joint trip to the gym was split up into two trips, and her gym fun is right now (during the current Brewers cluster**** that is game 1 vs. Philadelphia)...which means nothing but me, the Brew Crew, and a couple cold ones...


...however, thanks to the Phillies' INSANE lineup (who was Pat Burrell?) and Milwaukee's inability to field a pitcher who can actually perform his duties, the Phil's lead is 11-3 in the 7th inning. We're losing to a guy who is 45 years old. We have brought in our backup catcher. Our second baseman tonight is a current Cubs' castoff. Our shortstop is batting around .100 . Man, this is not fun.

This, however, is the only ray of sunshine on this rainy night in Philly...

Yeah, The Brewers really suck right now. The amazing thing is that Uecker is still calling the game and hasn't digressed into telling blow out stories.

On the bright side Braun went 5 for 5 with 2 jacks.

I have faith that the Tribe and the Brewers will both pull out of it. Too much offense not to. (I keep telling myself that).
