Once again, lack of offense and shoddy defense were the Brewers downfall last night. Yovani Gallardo struggled in the 3rd inning, but the Brewers had 3 differnt opportunities to secure the third out and failed to do so. Once he got out of that inning, YoGa seemed to settle down and pull himself together, meaning that if Cameron, Hall or Weeks had helped him, we'd have been in a much better pos...

By the end of today, we COULD possibly be down 0-1 in the series. By tomorrow evening, it COULD possibly be 0-2. You know what, I DON'T CARE!!! I'm so sick of every second-hand coach walking around like a Negative Nancy talking about how the Brewers are going to get swept and how much the team sucks and how the bullpen can't possibly make it through the playoffs. Even if I did agree with these...

Deadspin has their NLDS preview up. It's written by avid Cards fan Will Leitch and contains this gem: 6. The Brewers Aren't Particularly Likable. You have to be happy for Brewers fans, who have waited 26 years for a return to the postseason. But you don't necessarily have to like this team, which, in the opinion of this Cardinals fan, have taunted, showboated and chest-pounded to a rather...

I literally just walked in the door from today's Brewers game that started 5 hours ago. The game was only 2 hours and 25 minutes long. About 25,000 fans sat in the stands and watched the Mets game on the JumboTron and then we watched the team celebrate. I literally took over 500 pictures. I didn't stop to see what I got, I just kept clicking. Why? Because the Brewers just made their first postseas...

Over at Brewed Sports they unearthed a possible conspiracy theory on a Cubs fanboard that basically suggests the Cubs should play their hardest against us in order to prevent us from reaching the playoffs, thereby lowering our monetary intake and creating a payroll problem for us in the future.Poster DannyNoonan doesn't mind the theory, since it involves a team playing their hardest, which you can...

Damn it's fun to be a fan this week!Also, a poster over at Brewerfan.net had this to say:           Bold prediction: we will look back on this the same way we look back on Ned Yost's home run against Boston in 1982.Except, you know, Prince doesn't suck at baseball and we won't hate him for being a crappy manager 26 years from now.            Hilarious!!Go watch the walk-off grea...

Ned's comments to the media today did nothing but raise more questions about the whole firing situation. Mark A. had said that he asked Ned for reasons and solutions for the most recent slide and when Ned had none, he was dismissed. Today, Ned said that he was told he was dismissed the second he walked into the room and the questions were asked after that. Mark A intimated that Ned's answ...
