It has been a tough week for Brewers diehards as the Brewers have made moves that seemingly go against the very core of who they are and what they believe in.
First, the Brewers had the audacity to add a 2-3 win player to the rotation by signing Kyle Lohse to a three year deal worth $33 million dollars. (Snarky headline: Kyle Lohse Makes Sense, In An Alternate Reality.) The complaints are many, -- too many years (just like every free agent contract ever,) too much money (just like every free agent contract ever (and also, not really,)) he's 34 and that is way too old (true,) he's a spy for the Cardinals sent to destroy our organization's playoff chances (a very real possibility,) I don't know how to spell and/or pronounce his name -- but perhaps the biggest complaint of all is the loss of a FIRST ROUND draft pick which will now go to the CARDINALS instead. "Are you serious bro?" is what you might say if you were the only person left who thinks Zack Ryder is cool.
You may have noticed a lack of fantasy baseball talk on Miller Park Drunk this season. There's been no complaining about Yo's game against the Cardinals killing my team or Ryan Braun single handedly carrying it to victory last night or any of the other "talk about my fantasy team even though nobody else cares" stuff that you normally find on a sports blog. The reason for this is simple: I don't play traditional fantasy baseball anymore.
The reason for this is because season long fantasy sports are a thing of the past. Last football season when the teams I paid $150 or more apiece for were falling apart, I started playing a new kind of fantasy sports and I fell in love with it. I fell in love with Draftstreet.
If you haven’t heard about Draftstreet yet, it's a new way to play fantasy baseball that turns the season long grind into quick one night leagues. Quick one night leagues where you can win cash money. You draft a team for one night and get paid out as soon as the games end. Gone are the days of wasting a high draft pick on someone who falls off the map. *coughAlbertPujolscough* It's a lot of fun. I love DraftStreet.com and we are lucky enough to present a co-promotion with them: a FREE one-day fantasy league with $350 in prizes exclusively for Miller Park Drunk fans. Continue reading »
I like pictures of the Brewers outside of their uniforms. Casual Brewers if you will. Feel free to create a caption.
Clearly, there is a God. This picture exists.
And since we're here I wanted to tell you this too.
Let's face it folks, Ryan Braun has become a clubhouse problem child. We all know what he did last year, calling out players all while hot dogging it out on the field and embarassing the franchise in general.
After watching Ryan CHARGE the Dodgers clubhouse last year after a game, I knew it was time to trade this guy.
I'd be happy with getting a 2010 1st round draft pick, and a few mid-level minor league prospect for Braun.
What are the chances of finding a team that is willing to take this malcontent of our hands?
I've had it up to here with his poor attitude and sloppy play.
