The whining little bitches that inhabit St. Louis are crying more tears of sorrow. The Milwaukee Brewers gave them a beatin' that will probably stick in their minds for some time to come. The Crew jumped to an early 4 run lead on 2-run doubles by JJ Hardy and Jason Kendall, repectively. Manny Parry continued to right the ship with another great start. After starting the season 0-4, Parra has now gone 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his last 4 starts.
Prince Fielder contributed yet again, to the win by nailing a 3-run homerun for his 9th of the year.
Craig Counsell, yes, the guy that many Brewer fans didn't want returning to Milwaukee, had another great game. He doubled and singled while driving in a run. He is now batting .329 on the year.
Rickie Weeks left the game early after injuring his OTHER wrist (left). This is not good and will most likely result in a trip to the DL.
So....if he does go to the DL, will Billy Hall play second and Gamel & Counsell platoon at third? Or will Counsell just play second and Billy Hall continue to play third with Gamel getting the start against right handed pitchers?
Counsell has made the decision quite easy for Ken Macha at this point that he needs to play. Despite Hall playing well defensively and hittle effectively against left-handed hitters, Counsell needs to ride this hot streak. Ned Yost would've never have done this. NEVER. He was far too stubborn to play a hot bench player. Although Russell Branyon (who has 9 HR's right now) did find a way to play under Ned when he was hot last season. I still feel Neddy would have continued to have Bill Hall play everyday at third and Counsell filling in once a week.
The Crew will go for a sweep today when Braden Looper takes the mound. Macha has decided to rest Yovanni Gallardo, wisely so.
Some feel that the Brewers are arrogant and disrespectfull. I chuckle when I hear this. So does this man.
Mark DiFilice is starting to get recognized by the national media....finally. His stats this season are insane.
