Found April 27, 2012 on Miller Park Drunk:
PLAYERS: John Axford
TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers
Well, I'd be lying if I said that #WeLoveAx wasn't the worldwide phenomena that I expected it to be. I mean, you would think saying something nice about one of the best players on your favorite baseball team in a 140 characters or less would be a no-brainer, but apparently not. If there is one thing I've learned in life it's that I do not look good in a thong some people just don't like to do fun stuff. It's like when my old roommate's co-worker came over to our place to borrow something and when I asked him if he wanted a beer he said "You know I'm only 20 right?" Like wouldn't that make you want a beer even more? Does this look like a frickin' bar to you? What are you a cop or something? Relax, dude. That's kind of what this was like. Or maybe it's like Monday night's game when I was walking across the bridge, drunk, celebrating a Brewers win and trying to get a "YES!" chant started. Nobody wanted to do it. Th...

Gallardo continues ugly trend versus Cards

He's tried 10 times in his career in the regular season. But for some strange reason, Yovani Gallardo has only managed to beat the Brewers' division rival St. Louis Cardinals one time. And similar to some of his previous starts against St. Louis, Friday night was a quick and painful contest for Gallardo at Busch Stadium. The Milwaukee ace gave up eight hits and eight earned...

Brewers purchase RHP Chulk's contract

The Milwaukee Brewers purchased the contract of right-hander Vinnie Chulk and optioned reliever Mike McClendon to Triple-A Nashville, the team announced after its 7-3 loss to St. Louis on Saturday. The move is to bolster a bullpen that's been used extensively the past week. McClendon, a right-hander, appeared in three games since being recalled April 20, including three innings...

Axford has become automatic in ninth inning

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is the first to admit that he almost assumes a win when John Axford takes over in the ninth inning with a lead. "I think we do (take it for granted) because he's been doing it a year straight," Roenicke said. "We realize that the ninth inning is not as easy for other clubs." When Axford saved the Brewers' 9-6...

Brewers seek redemption today versus Cards

By ALAN FERGUSON, STATS WriterA matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers provided the St. Louis Cardinals just what they needed to break out of a slump. Judging by how he's pitched so far this season, Kyle Lohse might not require too much support during Saturday's game at Busch Stadium. St. Louis hit .211 with 21 runs scored during a 3-4 stretch before returning home Friday to...

The Nats Ended Up On Top Of The Nixed Zack Greinke Trade

If you'll recall, the signing of Jayson Werth to a seven-year $126 million deal was almost the second biggest move the Washington Nationals made last winter. The club had in place an agreement to acquire former Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke from the Kansas City Royals, a move that would solidify the team's rotation for years to come.  The Nationals had even reportedly...
