Doumit is Creepy

Hoffman - Ouch

The Pirates got a bit of revenge last night as they hoisted the Jolly Roger and broke their 22 game losing streak at Miller Park in grand fashion. Hoffman came in with a 3-2 lead and left with a 7-3 deficit after crazy evil bug eyed Ryan Doumit smashed a grand slam.

Holy Shit Houston... We have a problem!

This is kind of a touchy situation. When Hoffman was brought on last year he was guaranteed the closing role. Has he been guaranteed the same this year? I realize he's only handful of saves away from 600, but how long can we sit by and watch games slip away as he gets lit up? Hoffman is a legend... A shoe in for the Hall... It's Hells Bells.... How big of assholes will the Brewers look if he is taken out of the closing role this close to 600?

Perhaps it's time for Hoffman to suffer one of Doug Melvin's patented fake injuries and take some time off to sort out whatever is going on. Take a rehab assignment and get your confidence back throwing your change-up against A ball guys.

I don't think they should play Hell's Bells anymore until he records another save. They should play some shitty AC/DC song like... Given the dog a bone.

Cubs Comment

There was a good comment about my Cubs fan incident that I would like to post:

Rex Jaybels said...

I won't deny that there are plenty of asshole fans on the Cubs side, but let's not go so far as to think there aren't some following every team.

I am a Cubs fan who has lived in Milwaukee for 13 years, and I have encounters every time I go to Miller Park. This weekend I was there with my wife, who happens to be newly pregnant, and as we were walking to our cars two guys threw peanuts at me from there car and yelled, "Cubs Suck and so do you."

At which I point I kept walking with only a smile. The car followed us all the way to our car harassing us the whole way with slurs about me and my wife. Had she not been pregnant I would have ran up and knocked the guy out, but I didn't want anything to happen to her.

So before you go proclaiming all cubs fans are idiots, realize that we are not all that way. I have loved the Cubs since I was a child, and trust me, I hate that guy already as much as you do, but he doesn't represent an entire fan base, just as your fan base isn't represented by this one car load of jerks either.

The bottom line is this, "people are assholes." Some of them happen to go to baseball games. I'm glad to hear that this asshole got what was coming to him.

Here is my rambling response:

I would never condone any kind of violence towards Cubs fans at Miller Park especially directed at you and your pregnant wife. That's pussy bullshit and the bozo's that did that should be arrested along with the asshole that attacked me. I will be the first to admit that there are plenty of dirty people in this state as well. (See typical Packer fan who lives in Cudahy) The problem is that people from Milwaukee already hated people from Chicago long before the Brewers ever joined the NL and had this new Cubs "Rivalry". FIB is not an term of endearment.... Although, I've been to several Bears / Packers games at Lambeau and never saw any issues. Packers / Bears I would consider an actual Rivalry. The Cubs / Brewers I would just consider a fucking annoyance.

What angers me the most as a Brewers fan is it appears Chicago fans have an attitude of entitlement. I've heard the phrase "Wrigley Field North" far too many times. It's great that Cubs fans travel well, but this is still OUR PARK. This type of attitude is definitely not going to ingratiate you with Brewers fans. (Not that we have to like you, but we shouldn't hate you) I think any pleasantries between fans went out the window a while ago and it's only getting worse.

I guess I don't understand the hatred from Cubs fans because you can't spit without hitting a FIB in Lake Geneva, Door County, Minocqua, etc. If you hate our state and teams so much, why do you come up here?! Stay home if you hate it that much!

I'm not talking directly to you Rex.. Obviously, you live here now so that's a little different. We need to work on converting you!

22 straight wins at home against the Pirates. We've outscored the Pirates something like 53-3 in the past 4 meetings? The craziest part was probably Greg Zaun actually getting 4 hits tonight, 2 of which were his first of the year from the right side.

I think it's safe to say that we own the Pirates souls. How long can this continue? I'm afraid for a turning point where the Pirates beat our ass for a very long stretch. Everything evens out eventually... Right?

I didn't see the attendance, but there were visibly far less fans then there have been lately. I can't imagine why? Maybe don't get your ass handed to you by the most hated team with the biggest shit bag fans ever at home. (I'm still pissed)

(I have to interupt this post as Suppan is currently doing everything he can to throw away 17 runs. They aren't yelling Soup you bozo, that's BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!)

I'd love to stay on this high, but I know as soon as we're done with the Pirates we'll be back to not hitting a damn thing. I guess I'll just enjoy the next two games and hope we can keep some momentum for the road.

I very much look forward to Narveson starting on Wednesday. He's had a rough time in the bullpen, but I have a feeling that's all about to change. He's just built to be a starting pitcher.

UPDATE: I'm still fucking angry

As annoying as Twins fans are, I've never been assaulted. I've had issues with their retarded driving, but never has it come to blows. I think they are only annoying though because we always lose and in the end that's our problem.

Never once have I had any kind of issue with a Cardinals fan. I've even heard from many people that they are nice to Brewers fans when we go to St. Louis. I'm not saying I don't hate the Cardinals and their crybaby I'm old school you can't untuck bullshit, this is just about the fans.

I've been to many White Sox games at both Miller Park and County Stadium. They actually come to watch baseball not get hammered and "look to fight someone all day". Never had a problem. Amazing being that Cubs fans say they are all south side trash...

As I mentioned before the Tigers fans for the Exhibition games this year were cool shit. Another group of people that actually came to watch baseball. I enjoyed that series. Thanks again to the awesome Tigers fans next to us that let us sit under their E-Z Up in the pouring rain.

Why is it all these fans can come to Milwaukee and have a good time without starting trouble, but the Cubs fans can't seem to avoid it?! I'm getting sick of hearing "It's a rivalry!" No, it's not. Rivalries have a home field advantage some of the time, we never do.

I'm fed up. I want back in the AL. "Taking this thing National" was the stupidest fucking thing ever.


Never Again

I had the joy of going to what will surely be my last Cubs game at Miller Park on Saturday. I've said before that I would never go back, but after this weekend I'd rather have a living snake shoved up my ass.

First off, why are we messing with the rotation just before the Cubs series? We take our best pitchers and put them against the Pirates and put the bottom of the rotation against the Cubs?! Yes, Dempster vs. Suppan is a great matchup. Good thinking Macha! Actually, DD pitched pretty well. It's not his fault that we couldn't hit anything with RISP. Although, it wasn't very often there was anyone in that position anyway. I don't understand how you can score 46 runs in 4 games and then nothing. I know it was the Pirates and Nationals, but they are still major league pitchers.

If the Brewer players and front office wonder why there are so many Cubs fans vs. Brewers fans just take a look at this series for answers. You suck against the Cubs at home. If Brewers fans are going to put up with the asshole fans from Chicago then we at least want to see some wins to shut them up and make it tolerable.

Why do I say the Cubs fans are assholes?! Maybe because of shitbags like this... Walking out of the stadium with two of my friends to our car in about the 8th inning we came upon a single Cubs fan wandering around. As we passed him he said in my face "The Brewers fucking suck!". Should I have let this go to avoid confrontation? Probably, but I had already been subject to a shitty game and asshole fans inside. Myself, not being one to take bullshit from assholes I said back to him "Fuck you and the Cubs". At this point he got in my face and proclaimed "Let's go, I've been looking for a fight all day!". I don't recall how it escalated from there except at some point he took a swing which I partially blocked and it glanced off my face. I was a little stunned that this was even happening and didn't really feel like going to jail fighting some dirty fucktard, but before I knew it he had attempted to tackle me except he rammed me into a car. My friend grabbed him and tried to get him away from us and it was at this point he punch my friend and did the same stupid tackling maneuver. (why is it every dirtbag now thinks they are a UFC shootfighter?). Now, Clown was fucking angry. Just as he got my friend down with his pussy Shitcago ground fighting I took a running start and kicked him in the sternum so hard there is no way I didn't crack a rib. I went to my knees wrapped my arm around his neck and began to insert my thumb into his eye. I said something like "This is over now". He said in a choked out voice "truce". He got up and ran away holding his side.

I'm so glad that you drove all the way from Shitcago so that you could look for a fight all day.

Why do Cubs fans suck?!!!

Never again.

I know it's the Pirates, but we just outscored them in the series 36-1. That's insane. Being that there were only like 5000 people at the games this week, I can't imagine the attendance after the Brewers made them look silly. Towards the end of the game yesterday the Pirate fans were cheering for the Brewers.

I really can't imagine a better time for the Scrubs to roll into Miller Park. Braun is just killing it, Weeks is for real, McGehee is rockin and Fielder got the HR monkey off his back.

I'm so excit.... Shit, Suppan's pitching. Ugh...

Side by side comparison

I believe this to be an accurate comparison of Gregg Zaun's speed...

Seth McClung spotted in Nashville

A guy I know was at the Sounds game in Nashville this past Saturday and saw Seth McClung in the bullpen. Big Red was cut from the Marlins on March 30th, so I wonder if he was visiting, working out, trying out?? I don't have further details right now, but he's definitely not on the sounds current roster.

Gregg Zaun - Bum Fighter

During the post game show for todays game they interviewed Zaun and asked about blocking the plate after the throw from Gomez. This is part of what he had to say:

"If you can do some damage with the mask. If you can use it as a weapon that's always good"

He may have had a hitless streak that rivaled Brad Nelson to start the season, but with comments like that, you gotta love him.

We may have lost Jason the 'Hobo' Kendall, but we gained Gregg 'Bum Fighter' Zaun.

Awesome Uecker Quote

"That can really hurt when you get fisted." "You'll probably have to use some ice."

Just a bit worried

The series against the Cards' was hard to watch at times. It's hard not to cringe when your future hall of fame closer implodes two games in a weekend and your All Star 3 and 4 can't get a hit to save their lives. Let's start with the negatives. (Mainly because I'm an asshole)...

Saturday's game was atrocious all around. I'm not sure what's going on with Gallardo, but he needs to figure it out right quick. I'd hate to blame this on Peterson, but I think his crazy curly mullet may be distracting our pitchers. I can't stare directly at his hair, it's like Medusa. Last time I looked directly at it I busted out Air Supply and watched Knight Rider. Nobody needs that! It's also a sad day when the only person that can get a hit is Corey Hart. I still find it very difficult to not hope that he fails because he's such a douche.

The pitch Stavinoha crushed off Hoffman Friday night was a good one. I give Stavinoha all the credit for going that far outside and tagging it that hard. Then we move to last night... I'm not sure what the fuck Hoffman is thinking trying to pump 85 MPH "fastballs" past Pujols and Holliday. Did he forget how to throw his changeup?! Here's a newsflash Hoff, without that pitch you blow. The game ended too late to stay up and watch interviews after, so I didn't hear if there was an explanation for the pitch selection. I have to admit that I'm just a bit worried about Hoffman closing this season. He was terrible all spring and really hasn't found his groove. I know it's early and he's only blown a couple games, but at this point Hells Bells is more like Tinker Bell.

As far as positives...

Weeks is continuing where he left off last season. Dare I say bust out year?! He just seems to have a lot more confidence, is seeing the ball and crushing everything.

Fielder is really struggling. (how is this a positive?) Because he got really pissed off and was throwing shit around. I used to hate his outbursts, but it seems that when he's hard on himself he turns shit around. After he scared the shit out of Edmonds by tearing apart the dugout he got a hit.

There were questions going into this season about McGehee and whether last season was a fluke. If you look at his overall numbers from the minors they aren't anywhere near what he's been able to accomplish with the Brewers. McGehee has a message for all those that questioned his abilities... Fuck you! PS. Home run bitches! WHOOOOOOO!

What an awesome end to a shitty series. Should have been 2 out of 3, but at least we're back to .500. Now let's go into Chicago and beat a team with a mascot that is not indigenous to the region. When was the last time a bear cub strolled into Chicago? Right.
