With all the hubub over my article suggesting a fire sale by the Brewers, I thought I would post a funny statistic.


**A.D.D. Side note. Look, Losers, Brewer Fans, Wisconsinites……..I am a very reactionary fan. I live in the moment….be it the Brewers, The Packers, The Badgers or which ever Wisconsin team is competing. I bleed Green and Gold, Blue and Gold, Red and White…..heck….there is even a LITTLE Marquette Gold Eagle stuff in me… My rants are often simply a reactionary fans “reaction” to the current state of things. Can the Crew rebound? Sure, if Weeks, Hart, Plush and the other pillars of this team snap out of it. I suggested a fire sale as an over the top suggestion and solution…cuz, well, that’s what we do…often offer reactionary solutions, which I might add are VERY RARELY CORRECT.** There is a reason we run this blog and not a sports team!** /group hug time!


Now that that is said, and hopefully we can all be friends I have an interesting stat which was forwarded to me from a reader.

The email simply says;

Travis Ishikawa 5HR 19RBI
Prince Fielder 5HR 18RBI

Zach Greinke 17 straight scoreless innings.”

This is a telling email for a number of reasons. The first one. Likely telling me to shut my pie hole and recognize some positive Brewers’ news. The second is….holy crap, I didn’t realize that Prince was off to such a slow start. The media  has mostly ignored this while mostly focusing on Pujols struggles. Ishikawa…nice stats, is he the answer at First Base? Ishikawa had a stellar game last night, I say give the man a shot. Greinke, we love you, we really do. You are our ACE you have a hot wife and man, you are just lights out pitching. Please stay. Mark A., Zach, guys, please work out a long term deal so that this team can provide playoffs and World Series dreams to Brewers’ fans for years to come!.
