When All Else Fails....Try Try Again

Despite being held scoreless for 6 innings by DBack hurler Max Scherzer, the Crew hung in there and waited to strike their bullpen which was suspect. Sherzer's gem, once again, yielded him no results. He exited the game with a 1-0 lead, only to lose it on Tom Gordon's behalf. Flash just wasn't flash. With two on base Rickie Weeks provided the go-ahead single that scored Jason Kendall in the in the 7th inning.

Jeff Suppan had his third straight solid outing after ending the 2008 year and start of the 2009 season on a slow note. Hell....he was just piss-poor. His control was spot on, as was his location. He issued NO walks and gave up only 1 earned run on 5 hits. Most impressive Soup. Keep it up.

Milwaukee's bullpen put in another strong performance by going 2 2-3 innings with out a run....and most importantly...NO WALKS. Trevor Hoffman notched his second save and looked like he still has it. He did give up a weak single, but finished strong with 2 strike outs.

Max Shezer pretty much owned Prince Fielder last night and had him swing life away. I mean Prince looked pretty bad up there. Once he even got caught looking. Which is all good, Prince is Prince and he'll crush the hell out of the ball tonight. But this shows just how potent Sherzer is on the mound. Despite being winless on the year. Arizona's bullpen is horrid. Macha's plan was evident, get through Max and you'll have a shot at winning the game.

Mike Cameron is flamming hot thus far in to the year. He had two double last night. As did Billy Hall. Rickie Weeks went 3 for 4 on the night too.

The Phoenix New Times newspaper had some words to say about the Milwaukee Brewers. But they also like to rip on the German heritage of this great city. Keep in mind Phoenix, at least Milwaukee isn't overly populated with MS-13 gang members, senior citizens, and the dueche bag Matt Leinhert. I will take a brat over a taco any day of the week!

-The Brewers and FSWisconsin struck a new deal that will bring 150 season games to my tv. Hopefully WMLW will bow out.

-Carlos Corporan is thankful for being called up to the Bigs. He had a hell of a travel day getting to Milwaukee on Wednesday.

-Keep in mind that Don Money was finally promotted to the next big step in his coaching career last year. It's starting to pay off for Nashville.

He has really done a fantastic job in developing the farm system. While in Huntsville (AA) Money became the most winningest coach in franchise history down there.

"I know there are coaches that have never played in the big leagues, (that) their goal is to get to the big leagues," he said. "I've been in the big leagues. I've had my time. If they'd come to me and want me to go back to A-ball, that'd be fine.
"I want to do my job and get the players ready for whatever level it is.
"My job is to help every player get better."
spoken like a true leader.
