Brewers vs. Cubs

Has anyone else watched the first two Brewers/Cubs games? It has been unbelievable. The first game, for the Brewers, was one of the worst games I have ever seen played, on any level of baseball. Seriously, I haven’t seen ball played worse since JV baseball. Everything went wrong. The Brewers hitters made Rich Hill look like an All-Star. The second game, played today, was better, but it just seemed like nothing went the Brewers’s way. Every ball that was hit hard was right at the Cubs, every little squeaker the Cubs hit managed to find some green, it was almost unbearable to watch. Geoff Jenkins did hit his first homer of the season, which was a BOOMING home run to right. Rickie Weeks also hit his first, which I am thankful for, as he is not off to a very good start. Corey Hart also hit his first HR in last night’s game, a monster shot to left-center. This guy can definitely hit some long ones, just watch him once in BP and you’ll know. Ben Sheets pitched okay, nothing like his Opening Day masterpiece, he just couldn’t shut the Cubs hitters down. Dave Bush pitched well after the horrendous first inning last night. Let’s hope that Cappy throws a great game tomorrow afternoon, because I would really like to get back to .500 for the season. You can’t get swept by a division rival at home. Just can’t.

    When you don’t hit and you don’t pitch, you don’t win. Period. We could be playing the Washington Nationals and have lost those games. 5 hits on Friday and 5 hits on Saturday is not enough. Rickey needs to get on base and Prince needs to stop striking out. The team has only 40 hits for the year and they have went down on strikes 41 times. They are falling back into the same bad habits from a year ago.

    If you want to play in the post-season, you have to win at home and you have to beat the teams in your division.
