This Brewers' team is bi-polar.
One minute they're killing the ball and driving in the runs....the next minute they are getting blanked by a no-so-good team (in my opinion).
Yovanni Gallardo made on mistake in yesterdays game. That mistake ended up costing them the game. It was a two-run shot that to Geoff Bluhm (another Brewers'-killer) that provided Milwaukee with a losing road trip.
The Crew left plenty on base including Frank and Gerut in the top of the 9th inning. Both Cameron and Braun were called out looking. Horrible.
-Some good news too late? Stormy Weathers was acquired by Milwaukee in a waiver deal that will send either cash or a young prospect to Cincy. This is a great addition to the bullpen if you ask me. This man is reliable and passionate about the game. He will be a solid anchor in the bullpen and provide more rest to DeFelice, Coffey and McClunk. This will be Stormy's second trip with the Crew.
-Milwaukee is now 6 games back. On a positive note, so are teams like the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins (5.5). Plenty of baseball left. If anything, they should be able to make up some space on the Cubs with their series at home against the Pirates. One would think....
-Is 2009 the end of the road for Milwaukee & Jason Kendall? I like him. But it's counter-productive to have a kick ass defensive catcher who can't hit worth a lick.
-Mat Gamel is struggling down in Nashville. I don't know. I'm just not convinced on this guy. Since returning to the Sounds on July 20th he is hitting an awful .121 and no-homeruns.
-Milwaukee has better do something about their scout team. Yes, the Crew has done wonders on bringing in big time bats who can field. But they have yet to find a solid pitcher during the Melvin years.
