There is a lot of talk about Doug Melvin these days. Whether it's his bobblehead day, the Fire Doug Melvin blog or Mark A's recent comments about him. Everyone has an opinion on Doug Melvin, he is a hot item right now. Whether or not he is to blame for what happened this season is up for discussion (I say no), but he is our GM and he's pretty good at what he does. He's important to this team's future. Now I've been watching TV all of my life and I know there is only one true way to honor those who are important to you and that's with a roast.

If you live in Wisconsin or especially in the Milwaukee area you've heard your fair share of "Brewers out drinking" stories. One of the funniest I've heard was about Rickie Weeks and JJ Hardy out on the town for a night. This was shortly after JJ Hardy was selected to the All-Star team for the first time and in his attempts to get laid was basically telling every girl who would listen that yes, he was a Brewer and yes, he just made the All-Star team. The guy who told me the story said that Rickie Weeks was apologizing for his battery mate's douchery for most of the night.
Now, is this story true? I don't know. The thing is I can see it being true and it's funny, so I like it. Does it stop me from liking the guy? Of course not. I wouldn't trust the guy around my girlfriend. I am highly unlikely to buy him a drink if I see him out. I'd most likely make fun of him if he was doing anything close to what he's doing in this picture.
But he's a good baseball player and I want him to help the Brewers win.
That, in a nutshell is what this site is about. We're not here to do statistical analysis on the team, let someone else do that. We like drinking, we like baseball and we just want to have a good time. Especially if that good time is before or after a Brewers game. So let's party it up like our pal JJ here. Opening day is right around the corner.
