There is no such thing as a “curse” or “baseball gods”, so this borderline ridiculous string of injuries for the Milwaukee Brewers is obviously somebody’s fault. I blame Ron Roenicke. Fire him. Fire him NOW.
For the first time in years, the Crew is fielding an All-star caliber catcher and he’s sidelined by A SUITCASE!?!?!?!?!? WTF!??!?!?!?!?!??
If you live under a rock, the story is here. I’m gonna go puke up my breakfast again.
GRRRR!!!! I HATE SUITCASES!!!!!
“Everything is exactly the same,” said Roenicke. “The hamstrings, the pulled quads, the sore shoulders, those can be prevented because there is a maintenance program that guys do. Sometimes you can’t do anything about those, but those are the things you have control over because of how you train and what you do.
“The other things, a suitcase falling on your hand, those are freak things. You can’t do anything about that.”
I beg to differ. You can fire the manager. Fire your awful, whiny, last-place-if-the-Cubs-weren’t-in-our-division manager!!!
BEST OF MAXIM

The month of May has not been particularly kind to the Milwaukee Brewers. In this month alone they have lost starting shortstop Alex Gonzalez for the season along with starting pitcher, Chris Narveson. On top of that two first basemen, a starting outfielder and an additional pitcher have all been put on the DL in the month of May alone. However, I don't think they could...
