Randy Wolf and his buddies cannot allow more than 2 runs each game.

 

Beefe has boldly proclaimed that our Milwaukee Brewers will win the World Series. Could happen. So long as Ryan Braun never sees Octavio Dotel again, which is possible because he is now with Mr. Corn Row Prince on the Tigers. I will now run down the first week of spring training and some thoughts.

The Brewers cannot score runs. I was told, but our on staff Brewer expert that I am not supposed to worry about this yet. Hitters are getting their timing down and stuff I was told. Yeah, well Brauny, fresh off his roid get out of jail free, is 0-4 with 3 strike outs and still thinks Dotel is making him look stupid in the NLCS.

 

Dotel declined our interview stating that he is working on growing Corn Rows like Prince. He did apologize to Brauny stating "He isn't as bad as I made him look, but he did look stupid didn't he"

Yovani Gallardo, who I love to rail on, pitched lights out yesterday. The Crew needs him to be on his game this year as they wont score as many runs…..they need the pitchers to dial it up a notch.

Cory Hart………god, do you ever play a full spring. Cory is hurt…..again……and he is wearing his sunglasses at night. He has a torn meniscus or something, guess he tore it walking off the plane to Phoenix. Get well Cory, you are simply an average hitter who loves to strike out, but holy crap The Crew has nothing behind you NOTHING. They need Hart to hit 20+ homers and swing at low and away crap.

Shaun Marcum has a sore shoulder. Must have tweaked it reaching back for one of those 80 mph heaters right over the plate. Regardless, we need Marcum throughout the season, but we also need to bench him when the playoffs start…..should the Crew make the playoffs.
Randy Wolf, Greinke and Narv-Dog are dialed in early this spring. Each has thrown 2 scoreless innings along with Gallardo. This is positive stuff Losers. The Brewers will win a bunch of 2-1 thrillers this year.

All in all its early. I am sure Brauny will heat up, but it sure is fun, in the mean time, to make Octavio Dotel jokes……as in my eyes Brauny will never live down that NLCS strike out embarrassment. The Crew still needs to find some hits, find some gaps “A”….they need runs, bad.

I am not yet sold on Beefe’s claim, but I do think the Crew will contend this year if they can adequately replace Corn Row Dork’s missing bat.

 

WORD.
