Randy Wolf (2-2) got rocked yesterday afternoon in San Diego. Honestly, Tony Gwynn Jr. is a Brewer-Killer. The guy lights us up every time he's at-bat. It's like he's thinking, "Take this Melvin...you SOB.....how's CF working out for you now? You have two gimps out there, one being a senior citizen".
Okay, maybe not, but he has to be grinning. After all, Milwaukee is without Carlos Gomez and Jim Edmonds. My guess is that Joe Inglett and Jody Gerrut aren't the answer. As I said earlier, Edmonds may have to go on the DL. Gwynn had a two hit game again and an RBI for his new team.
Milwaukee was shut out 8-0 and their bats have gone silent yet again. The middle of the Brewers batting order all went o'fer (Bran, Fielder, McGehee).
Rickie Weeks went 0-5 and is now batting .252. I would call this a slump, considering that he's our lead-off hitter.
The only 3 Brewers to record a hit were those off the bench making spot starts. Craig Counsell is really heating up again, so it would be wise to have him play more at SS and 2B, even 3B. Rookie Alicides Escobar is only 1 for his 13 at-bats. Meanwhile, Counsell (started two straight games at SS) has been hitting a scorching .429 with a HR and 8 RBI's. He's looking like a good fantasy pick-up right about now.
The bullpen went back to their retched ways yesterday as well. Coffey and Parra both allowed earned runs, the latter giving up 2.
Milwaukee has the day off while they travel up the coastline to LA. Milwaukee will get their first look at Dodger hurler John Ely. Remember last season? Anytime the Brewers faced a new pitcher for the first time....they would lose. Let's hope this doesn't hold true on Thursday. They will also face Clayton Kershaw and Chad Billingsley.
