Milwaukee....can't even beat the Pirates....

Well, that seems to be the name of the game these days. Milwaukee's pitching just can't fend off any threats, offensively. In fact Parra didn't look awful last night; he only gave up his typical 4 runs of the game. It was the bats that couldn't provide the support.

Luckily, Prince Fielder was able to continue his hot streak by blasting his 32nd homer of the season.

Felipe Lopez was finally cooled off by the Pirates. He has been on a tear and entered the game with a 12 game hitstreak. Mike Cameron had his 9 game hit streak snapped as well.

Manny Parra sufferred his first loss in 8 starts, since coming back from AAA.

I feel...deep inside, it's time for Mike Rivera to split 50 - 50 with Jason Kendall. He's too good of a hitter to just leave on the bench. Kendall is far too likely to hit in to a double-play.

-Doug Melvin is trying to put something together involving Bill Hall. Thank God!
Remember Anthony Witrado's douche-bag story he did on Billy Hall after he came back from AAA? The Crew was playing the Dodgers in LA. READ THIS.....too funny.

-Some more good news, in addition to the departure of Bill Hall....Kentrail Davis was finally signed by the Crew. Besides the 1st pick (pitcher from Indiana), Davis is probaby my favorite pick of this years draft. Although short, this guy has pop in his bat and he's speedy. Milwaukee needs speed more than ever. Besides Escobar and Lopez, the team is filled with bunch of turtles.

-Bush threw 37 pitches last night in front of a sell-out crowd in Appleton, WI.
Additionally, Brett Lawrie was promotted to AA-Huntsville. That's great news. He could actually be called up by next year, in my mind.

-Everyone was in shock when JJ Hardy was sent down to AAA, imagine the fans of the Kansas City Royals when they found out coveteted rising-star Alex Gordon was sent down as well. He's their start 3B who was supposed to be their cornerstone in-fielder.

-Milwaukee didn't lose any ground last night, thanks to the Cards & Cubs dropping their respective games.
