Default Let's talk Brewer Baseball

I'm having a hard time keeping track of all the threads about the Brewers...it seems we have quite a "crew" that will be following them this year, so I figured I'd start a separate thread to keep track of all things Brewers.

Bring on the smack.

I'll start!

I'm watching them on the free DirecTV MLB Ticket preview this week. Tonight we've got the the classic Vin Scully calling the game--always a treat to listen to the legend.

It was weird listening to the new Brewers FSN team last night. I loved Daron Sutton--the new guy seems kind of stiff. Schroeder is always solid--very knowledgeable.

I gave up on Baseball offically when they canceled the world series . . . now the only reason I follow the Brewers is to see if I am gonna get some free burgers from George Webbs . . . I love me some George Webbs

This is the first year I didn't order the MLB Ticket, so of course the Brew Crew will win the division and play solid ball this year.

Rant:

Does anyone else get driven absolutely crazy by that stupid routine Nomar does EVERY single time before he enters the batter's box? GAWD is that stupid.

Yup I bitch about him every time I see him. A few years ago, when they were trying to figure out ways to keep the games from going 4+ hours, his name kept popping up. Gee, wonder why???


Pumbaa, I know a lot of people that will never forget that year, and refuse to follow baseball because of it. They forget, though that since then, baseball seems to have learned its' lesson- they have now gone onger without a work stoppage than ever in the last 30+ years. Time to bury the hatchett maybe???

I'm too cheap to buy anything other than basic cable, but I sprung $15 to get Game Channel, so I can listen to all the games. I figure if the Brewers suck this year, I can pretend Uecker's got a bottle in his hand and I'm listening to "Major League 4."

WOW! Great play by Whitefish Bay native Craig Counsell! Double play with a diving stab and tagging the bag to keep the Brewer's hopes alive!

To the 7th inning stretch and the sausage race!!!!! Go Bratwurst!
