Milwaukee won Friday night 7-2. It was a come from behind victory that made think they were out of this slump.
Milwaukee then lost yesterday, on national TV, 7-1. Milwaukee (to my knowledge) is winless this season when they play on National TV. They mustered only 3 hits and 1 run. Manny Parra took the wind out their sales right away in the 2nd inning. He's now shipped back to the minors, where he can hopefully pull a Dave Bush ala 2008 and come back stronger than ever.

With a 7.52 ERA in the past 13 outings, one can't be too shock.
Milwaukee hasn't been able to give Trevor Hoffman any save opportunities since last Saturday. Regardless, he's still in top 5 for the NL with 15 saves and has an ERA of 0.00. He even made a spot appearence in a non-save situation in yesterday's ass-whooping. He gave up a hit.
Corey Hart has been looking sharp the past couple of games. Especially his 2-run double in Friday's game. He might be the player that leads the Crew out of this slump.
Jacobi McDaniel was selected by the Brewers in the 33rd round. It's looking like the kid will be playing for FSU instead, as their Defensive Tackle. Apparently there's some confusion over whether or not the Brewers made an offer of 800 k.
LA Times rips the Brewers' "Dollars for Dingers" promotion. Meanwhile, there are still idiots who frequent Dodger Stadium wearing fake dread locks that sewen into baseball caps.
