Let's take a break from talking about Dylan Covey and how much an idiot he is. Why would we want to talk about someone who after being diagnosed with diabetes turned down $2 million dollars? DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH INSULIN THAT COULD BUY?! Enough to get you high, I bet. It's not like there is any risk of him being injured in the next two years before he is eligible to be drafted again and thus lose the perceived value he currently has. It's not like he could have an adverse reaction to his diabetes treatment and never be a good pitcher again. (See, why complain about this? Things could go wrong. His family is stupid for telling him not to do this, but they are the ones really missing out. He's just as likely to become a diabetes stricken Matt Bush as he is to be a diabetes stricken Yovani Gallardo. High school pitchers got some risk, dog.)

Instead, let's talk about something that happened 500 years ago today. A time when the Brewers actually had good pitching and actually won some games. It was a better time. To the email inbox!

I'm Chris Jaffe, a writer for The Hardball Times website and I just wrote a little blurb you & your readers might like: a half-century ago today (8/18), was one of the best pitched games in Milwaukee history.

Sounds like a good read. I think I'll open it in a new tab and read it in a few days.

Until then I am just going to assume that the Brewers beat the Braves that day and won when Bob Uecker hit a walk off homerun off of Jamie Moyer. After the game Uecker and the rest of the team headed downtown to celebrate, but it was during prohibition so they were only able to drink root beer and eat baked beans. It was a different time.

Vince Morales is the guy who runs this site. He likes the Milwaukee Brewers, pro wrestling and beer. If he offended you he is very, very sorry.

    Hey Drunk Pants man – I bought my pass to the fun and frivolity on the 29th but don’t have any details. Like I’m planning on wearing my really cool JJ hardy t-shirt with the sleeves cut off and I’m gonna clip my glove to my camo shorts for catchin the foul balls….but what time does the bus come to my house to pick me up? Will you give me my ticket when the bus comes or when you walk me to the gate and show the man the ticket for me and then walk me to my seat and make sure I have everything I need? Where will the bus pick me up to make sure I get home ok? Most importantly – will there be any fine ladies there for me? Thanks for all your help – see you soon.

    I didn’t know there was a bus involved…I sure hope it is the short bus because that is all that I am allowed to go on according to my supervisor
