6/1 Cheering, Venting, & Brewers Do The Impossibru!

Postby benb18a » Fri Jun 01, 2012 5:36 am

News and Fun Facts

- For the first time in franchise history, the Brewers sweep the Los Angeles Dodgers. No, this wasn't a two game series, no, it wasn't at home, and no, the Brewers didn't have their starting catcher, shortstop, first baseman playing. The Crew came into LA's house, the best team in baseball, and handed them 4/9s of their home losses for the first two months of the season in a close four game series that saw a couple great pitcher matchups. More proof that anything can happen in pro sports.

- Zack Greinke punished conservative owners like me who need to maintain ERA and WHIP much more than trying for a W or strikeouts heading into this weekend, by continuing his Jekyll & Hyde act on the road, going 6 strong innings with 7 Ks and just 1 ER.

- The good news, is with only three games slated, there weren't any significant injuries for the first time in quite a while. The bad news, is Tulo was officially put on the DL yesterday with groin issues.

- CarGo hit yet another tater as the Rockies lit up the Astros, and is a big part of the reason I fear starting Capuano in COL tonight, despite being burned by Greinke's feast-or-famine road performance.

- Scherzer continues to impress, winning his fourth consecutive decision, with about an 18K/9 over that stretch. Don't look now, but he may be usable now that surely many have given up on him or at least benched him.

I have Strasburg going today, hoping to make up a little for my mistake of starting Bud Norris yesterday.

Ah, that good feeling when you land your favorite pitcher that you missed in the draft. :-)

Thinking about benching Felix vs. the White Sox. Good idea?

I wouldn't bench Felix. The Sox aren't that imposing IMHO.

You don't bench Felix against anybody. Not even the Yankees or Rangers.
