We live in a 140-character world. We also live in a day and age where twitter muscles get flexed over the most minute detail.
Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy knows this and also knows that any information about his team can be taken, discussed and used against them in some way shape or form either in the media or on Sunday.
So listen closely because any real information about the Packers…. it’s going to be few and far between.
While McCarthy respects the media’s job, he says that everyone in that locker room now knows how to handle information and questions.… Read the rest
Should Ichiro Suzuki be spoken in the same breath as the Hit King, Pete Rose?
Ichiro has surpassed Rose for professional hits (2980 in MLB and 1278 in the Nippon Professional Baseball League in Japan = 4258 vs. Rose’s record of 4256 in MLB).
While those in Japan are celebrating Suzuki as their true Hit King, in America, we seem to yawn and say, “When you get to 3000 let us know”.

Going into tonight’s game vs. the Miami Marlins, the Milwaukee Brewers are 13 – 19 overall. That’s good for last place in the Central Division, 12 full games behind the Cubs and the 5th worst record in all of Major League Baseball.
The Milwaukee Brewers, offensively, are 15th in the majors in batting average and OPS. Couple that with 11th overall with runners in scoring position and that’s not bad at all. In fact, it’s better, as a team, than where they were at the same time last season.
The unfortunate thing about this story is the pitching. The Brewers starting pitching is the worst in baseball which greatly contributes to the teams “league worst” ERA.… Read the rest
