And all three wins were of the walk-off variety? Why isn't anyone talking about this? Let's throw in last Saturday's game against the Cardinals where they took them to the 11th inning before losing and the Brewers (not named Randy Wolf) have been playing pretty decent baseball for about a week now. Hart is hitting everything out of the park, Jeff Suppan has left the building, Gallarado can't be touched, Casey McGehee is the most clutch person on the planet and we might actually have a closer (gasp!), this is pretty good times if you ask me. At least compared to what we had before. Then again, I'm an idiot.
Can we beat the Rangers? Of course we can! They are stupid! And Texan!
Friday: Rich Harden RHP (3-2 5.34) vs. Chris Narveson LHP (4-3 5.83)
Seems even right? WRONG!!! Harden is 1-1 with an 8.10 ERA over his last five starts. Plus, who could forget last July 4 when the Brewers tagged him for 7 runs in two innings? Now, that was a good time. McGehee, FTW!
Also, the Rangers don't hit lefties as well as they hit righties.
Saturday: Scott Feldman RHP (3-6 5.73) vs. Manny Parra LHP (1-3 3.96)
I'm not going to go ahead and guarantee a victory in any game Manny Parra starts, but if pitches at least 1/3rd as good as he did against the Cardinals on Sunday you might want to put some cash on this game. Especially considering the Rangers are starting, based on name alone, the team's accountant.
And Manny is another lefty!
Sunday: Colby Lewis RHP (5-4 3.40) vs Yovani Gallardo RHP (6-2 2.41)
Uhh, duh. It's Yo Day.
And I don't want to be a bad person or anything here, but if Josh Hamilton did this in Arizona...
You can imagine what a weekend in Milwaukee could do to him.
Get freakin' optimistic!
We're off for the weekend. Hopefully we can stay dry for a few days and drink some beer outside. It's different from drinking beer inside because it feels like you're doing something. You're not, but that's how it feels. I love drinking beer outside.
I’m livin’ in the 21st century
Doin’ something mean to it
Do it better than anybody you ever seen do it
Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it
I guess every superhero need his theme music
