Brewers enter the (unofficial) second half 45-43
Prince Fielder won the Home Run Derby last night, beating out ex-Brewer and one-time minor league teammate Nelson Cruz. Prince held 4 of the top 5 longest homerun marks too. Albert Pujols struggled early but the whaled the ball in the tie-breaker round. Fielder's longest just over 500'.
Loge Seats will be $5 for Milwaukee's game against the Padres, August 11-13th. Not bad! Princes' 23 HR's dropped the normal price of $28/ticket.
Tonight, Ryan Braun will start in RF. It appears the Charlie Manuel is going to put the aging Ibanez in LF to rest him more. What a joke. The biggest joke was Manuel selecting Jayson Werth to replace Kemp. That makes 3 OF for the Phillies.
Ryan Braun hit only .120 last week, just after griping about Melvin. Who cares, he's gonna have down weeks. Could it be his feud with Melvin? No.
Hoff was added to the All Star team for the National League. Isn't that a no-brainer? I mean, 20 of 22 saves?!?!?! All while missing one month of play.
Milwaukee will (in my opinion) call up Alcides Escobar within the next month. It appears he's waiting for that call.
Finally, Lorenzo Cain will begin his journey back from injury. He will make some rehab starts in Appleton this month and then rapidly make his way back up to Nashville. This is the future RF of the Brewers!
Milwaukee dropped their series with LA over this past weekend, 2-1. The loss brings Milwaukee's record to 44-42 on the year.
