Crew Re-Signs Doug Davis

I guess the Brewers are out of the Ben Sheets foreign lottery. I'm sure someone else will fall for your scam Barrister Sheets. I think the only thing Sheets hasn't been on the DL with yet is Ebola. if I were you I wouldn't even let him watch the movie 'Out of Africa'.

Who'd we trade Davis for a few years ago.... Oh yeah... Johnny Estrada. Good Call Porn Stache Extraordinaire.

Davis is basically guaranteed a starting spot along with Wolf, Gallardo and Parra. who will be the odd man out now (Bush or Suppan) and will they wait until spring to make the decision?
Neither Bush or Suppan have any value in the bullpen. Bush has always been terrible the first couple innings and Suppan just sucks all the time. Suppan's contract pretty much guarantees him a spot and I doubt they will have enough room on the roster to carry both in any capacity. I like Bush and I'll be sorry to see the only pitcher to not choke in the playoffs go.

JunkTruck'n - Junk Van'n

Saw this beast at the Potawatomi parking structure. Just a thought, but Next time you "fix" your rear window with duct tape, maybe think about using clear plastic? I've seen better laid out plans from Wile E. Coyote.

The best part has to be this:

Yes, that is in fact "The Club" across the steering wheel. Couple things here...

1. Really? The demo derby isn't in town, so I think you're safe.

2. The Club is like $50, maybe you should invest that in a real back window that isn't made from Flavorite trash bags?

3. When you called your insura.... Ok, I can't even do this one without laughing

4. Your lack of rear window makes me think that being at a casino probably isn't the best life choice at this venture. (Unless you were hitting up the 'Press Your Luck' slot)

And of course, what Junk Van would be complete without body clips:

Too cool for school?

What are the odds that Fielder doesn't show up for the Brewers OnDeck? looking at his track record of skipping two block parties he was scheduled to attend, I would say very likely. He also briefly appeared in the balcony of the Winter Warmup at the Riverside last year days after signing his multi-year deal. You could tell he didn't want to be there and basically said three words "Yeah, you know" and did not take part in the show.

Prince, you're an amazing talent. You had arguably the best season in Brewers history last year and I hope some how we sign you long term. That being said; This city has supported you through your veggie induced Parra shoving, contract anger, tax evasion, attempting to bust into locker rooms to throw down, etc. You have 18 million reasons to show up. Do the right thing.

Women with your Breakfast

I know I talk about TV a lot, that's mainly because I have no life.
The show Parks and Recreation is pretty damn funny if you haven't seen it. Like tonights episode where Ron (above) discribes his love of breakfast and dark haired women:
"I'm a simple man. I like pretty, dark-haired women and breakfast food. But this stock photo I bought at a framing store isn't real. Today I got the real thing. A naked Tammy made me breakfast this morning. I should have taken a picture of it."
After he ends the relationship he puts back up a picture of just breakfast.
I'm oddly hungry and horny...

NBA - Gun Fever

Some card game called Bourré and inter-team gambling debts led to a guns drawn locker room showdown between Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton of the Wizards. However, that by itself did not lead to a suspension until the above picture of Arenas pretending to fire his six shots to the wind surfaced. So, the actual criminal act of keeping what I'm sure is an unregistered firearm at work and drawing down on someone isn't worthy of a suspension, but joking about it after is? I really don't need anymore reasons to not watch the NBA, but their handling of this and many other situations is a joke.

I think I've mentioned this before... Once you become a professional athlete making millions of dollars it's probably time to put down your gats and stop being a thug. Do you really need to be strapped at the arena? Has the team mascot been threatening you?

NBA - Swatting bats and popp'n caps. Fun for the whole family.
