Narveson pitched well again. The strike zone was a lot tighter this time around. There was nothing doing on the whole left side of the plate. Narveson struck out Spilborghs at least 3 times before he walked; however, neither team was getting the calls, so fair is fair. Narveson should have been left in to clean up his own mess in the 6th especially with our now injury thinned bullpen. Coffey is so overworked now it's a joke, so let's bring him in again? Narveson has shown in his 3 starts this year that he is capable of getting out of jams and actually throws better pitches under pressure. I don't like the way he has been handled thus far. I hope he heads down to winter ball somewhere and keeps working on his control. He could be the feel good story of next year like Casey this year.

The defense was atrocious and was partly the cause for several runs. I'm not sure if Hardy and Lopez are beefin or what? The first time Lopez tried to track down the runner instead of flicking to hardy for the double play was bad enough, but then to try and do it again after the first debacle? It just seems to me that he isn't focused and hasn't been since arriving in Milwaukee. His defense has been historically much better than what he has shown. There's probably about a 1 in 100 chance they keep him over weeks, but if they do I hope he turns it around defensively.

Kendall must have eatin a 100 ounce can of beans before the game as he jacked the game tying home run in the 9th. I was getting a bit angry when BA kept talking about Cameron's walk and how important it was that inning and skipping over talking about the home run. Yes, without Cameron being on base it probably would have been game over, but Kendall is the one that hit the fucking home run. If it weren't for America's most average baseball player hitting into 2 bases loaded double plays earlier in the game we wouldn't have been in that situation.

Stormy Weathers has been really erratic since joining the crew. He's nearing the end of his career and the way this year is turning out for him I would not be surprised if he just retires. I don't expect to see him back with the Crew next year.

The Rockies can flat out rake, so I fully expected a slug fest this series. I believe the Rockies magic number is now 3, so they can still clinch in this series.

Let's hope the Tigers can finish off the Twins. Why? Because I hate the fucking Twins fans almost as much as the Cubs.
