11-15: Narv-Dog to the rescue

Milwaukee's new charter jet, Brewers One
Chris Narveson improved his record to 2-0 on the season by throwing 6 complete innings last night in LA, giving up 3 runs (all earned) on 4 hits, 3 K's, and only 2 walks.

Prince Fielder (3) and Greg Zaun (1) both went yard

Casey McGehee had a nice web gem moment when he fielded a sharp liner in the bottom of the 6th, thus resulting in Chris Narveson getting out of a jam (man on 2B). It could of easily scored a run.

Zaun has been quite solid at the plate since going 0 for 20-something back in April. He had 3 hits last night (including a double) 2 RBI's. Likewise with Carlos Gomez who also added 2 hits and is now batting .282 on the year.

Dodgers radio commentator, the legendary Vin Scully, had some kind words for Bob Uecker. With the passing of Erin Harwell, there aren't too many old school announcers left. I tuned in to MLBTV last night to watch Harwell's farewell speech that he made last September. It's like he knew that he was going to pass away in the very near future, the way he talked. Vin Scully and Uecker, in my opinion, are the last two legends left.

If you think Doug Melvin is even thinking about firing better think again. I don't see it happening. Granted, I would love to have his position eliminated. But look how much slack he gave Ned Yost. C'mon now.
