August 16th Gameday
I'm sitting here at work excited to watch the Brewers game on the ticker. So I started this beast up and want people to let me know what I'm missing by not actually listening to the game.
Capuano is on the hill versus Zach Duke. The Brewers have countered Duke with 8 right-handed hitters, a good move by Yost. Prince has played just about every game and is getting the day off more for rest I'm sure. Sticky Dick Mike Rivera and T-Graff are in the lineup as well. Jason Bay is not in the lineup again. The Brewers have a significant advantage on paper here. This is a very important game. The goal of making the playoffs has just about disappeared. It will disappear for certain with a loss today. However, there is still the goal I set at the begining of the year: finishing over .500. The Crew is going to have to play some damn good baseball to finish over .500. I'm holding on to hope. The schedule is obviously easy from here on out, and September call-ups figure to help the Brewers more than other teams. Plus Jenkins is benched and Corey Hart is playing. Wouldn't it be nice to finish 82-80? If they aren't going to do that, I'd rather see them tank and get the 5th overall pick next year.
Let's get some commentary going!
