Since I don’t really care much to talk about the Brewers current slump, I’m posting some happy memories of the 2 recent games I attended.
Last Wednesday’s loss to the Rockies was overshadowed by by 4-year-old niece, Piper. First of all, I’m super jealous that she got to even set foot on that field, but also, she’s so into baseball, she didn’t even care about dancing. She was just so happy to be out where the Brewers play.
And since we got to be so close to watch the little dancers, I had to get a good pic of whoever was left warming up on the field. Just these 2. Corey has since managed to pick up his average and came up with a couple homeruns yesterday, but JJ? Ugh. I hate to be using that word so much lately in relation to the Brewers, but unfortunately, it’s fitting.
We all know how I feel about Dave. Awe!
Chris Smith’s first pitch as a Milwaukee Brewer.
It just cracks me up that Frank’s last name doesn’t fit on the scoreboard.
The next few come from Friday night’s win against the White Sox. My favorite kind of game–lots of offense that makes the opposing fans really bitter and leave early!
Squishing the outfielders.
Trio of Racing Sausages, recreating the race. Cinco has won the last 2 games I’ve been to. Awesome!
Aaaaaaand it wouldn’t be a game without a picture of Ryan’s bum.
So, there. Happier times at Miller Park. (Even though that Rockies game was a loss.)
The Crew won’t be back home until next Tuesday and they’ve got 2 more stops on the Interleague Express before Minnesota makes their way here. I have to say, I’ll be quite happy when interleague play is over with. It hasn’t treated the Brewers too well, thus far. Every team they play has had the same or worse record than Milwaukee, yet the Brewers have a losing record when faced with American League teams.
Currently, I’m not pleased with the 1/2 game lead over St. Louis either, but I’ll take it since it’s still first place.
Only 2 games going tonight, and the Crew has one of them. It’s my fave, Dave Bush (3-3, 4.58 ERA) against Carl Pavano (6-5, 5.40 ERA). Milwaukee is at 34-29 and leads the NL Central, while Cleveland sits in the basement of the AL Central at 29-36. I’m hoping the Brewers are able to pull off some wins on the road, and also hoping that those players hovering in major, major slumps (they know who they are) can pick up and start producing for their team.
