HR Derby, YAWN

Posted in Bill's Blog
I’m on vacation.  Relaxing and refreshing before….dare I say it….Packers training camp begins.  So I’m sitting down, watching baseball’s Home Run Derby.  You know, the ESPN hype driven event that has seemed to screw up more hitters swings than a Clayton Kershaw slider. So I’m sitting here watching and I find myself shaking my head over and over again.  Between Chris Berman’s overused cliché’s and constant references to towns in Minnesota and his mic being left open, on more than one occasion, where he just sounds like a crotchety old man to the disappointing lack of true home run hitters. I wasn’t entertained, I was embarrassed for Major League Baseball.… Read the rest

The Brewers 11-2 rout of the central foe Cardinals certainly lifted the spirits of this bewildered team. … Read the rest

Brewers Frustration Starting To Show Within

Posted in Bill's Blog
“We were getting breaks early and now we’re not”, one Brewers official told me, “We scored 3 runs on a wild pitch for gosh sakes.”  “Now, we’re swinging to knock fences down, we’re not doing the little things to put pressure on teams to win”. The Brewers are in a freefall right now and seem to be trying to win games with single at bats.  In other words, they’re pressing. “It’s like quicksand, the more you flail the worse you struggle, but it’s not even the All Star break, guys need to get a win, relax and get a way for a while to re-energize the batteries.” Ron Roenicke can only do so much but he has to explain to Matt Garza why he took the starter out, after 7 2/3 innings (108 pitches) for Will Smith who promptly didn’t record an out while giving up 3 hits, 2 walks and 5 runs allowing the Phillies to blow the game wide open. … Read the rest
