WAZZUP BITCHEZZ????

Welcome to the NEW and IMPROVED Miller Park Drunk. I'm Chad and I am the new boss (and yes that is me bombin' two Old Styles at once,WHAT). Your prolly thinking "why is this dude in a Cubs jersey who can drink two Old Styles at a time and is obviously a pimp buying a site called Miller Park Drunk? Well, if there is one thing I have learned in my life it's that you don't have to like the Brewers to get drunk at Miller Park! Heck, you don't even have to like baseball! In the history of Miller Park the best drunks have ALWAYS come from Chi-town.

look at me i'm the old editor, i'm a stupid faget

"look at me i'm the old editor, i'm stupid"

For real though, I been reading this website for awhile and thought it was pretty frickin' funny. I just knew that I could make it better. How? By making it about the Cubs, DUH!!!! So I took some money out of my trust fund and gave that idiot who was running it an offer he couldn't refuse (fifty bucks, a 12 pack of Milwaukee's Best and the issue of Playboy with Sable from WWF.) You Wisconsin folk are so simple.

Things are gonna be a bit different around here now. First order of business is to make up for all the dumb stuff this idiot said before. Like who doesn't like a good retro jersey? My prized possession is my autographed Sosa jersey. I'm not supposed to wear that just because he's not on the team anymore? BITE ME MILLER PARK DRUNK! Did Paul Moliter ever hit 60 homers in a season? Didn't think so! How about Robin Yount? No? I CAN'T HEAR YOU!

Anyways that's enough for the day I gotta head down to the Cubby Bear for a little pregame before the Cubs WHOOP some Brewers ASS tonight. That's right, Ryan Braun does my taxes. I'll be the dude in the autographed Sosa jersey sipping on Old Style. If you see me come say whats up and maybe I'll give you a little tug off my flask. Jack Daniels? YOU DAMN RIGHT JACK DANIELS.

Tomorrow we should have some more awesome, way better than before stuff including a VERY SPECIAL GUEST WRITER who I think kicks total ass and more stuff that kicks ass. Have fun watching the game tonight, I know I will.

PREDICTION: Cubs 17 Brewers 1. Theriot hits for the cycle.

I got nothing: random notes from MPDHQ

Baseball September 11th, 2009

princegirlYou'd think after going to two games this week I'd have something on my mind, but you'd be wrong. I got nothing. Well, nothing long form at least. I do have these few tidbits.

- I SHOULD be doing a podcast on Monday night which will be posted here Tuesday day. This is not exactly by popular demand, but I think that this is going to be good and should keep you entertained throughout the offseason. If you think we don't talk enough about baseball now, you ain't seen nothing yet.

- Speaking of things that SHOULD be happening. I'm supposed to have a story going up on Decider again. The last time I wrote for them I told you "How NOT to be a Brewers fan", this time it's a bit more.... I'll say controversial.

- Is that considered selling out? Writing for "the man"? What if I told you that someone offered me a lot of money to buy the website? How would you feel about that? I'll have more on this next week.

- Stop the presses. Anthony Witrado actually wrote a decent column about the 2010 team. I don't believe it either.

- Speaking of the 2010 team I might touch on this later in the offseason, but just allow me to say that if the team gives up on Rickie Weeks I find it more offensive than the JJ Hardy thing. Weeks worked harder than anyone in the offseason to improve, showed tremendous improvement and then got hurt. There would be no Lopez without that injury and there'd be no need for Lopez without that injury. I am sick of hearing about getting rid of him and keeping Lopez in everyone's rosterbation fantasies.

- Michael Hunt is hit or miss with me, but he gets some great quotes from Doug Melvin in this article. As I've pointed out before 5 of the top 6 Brewers pitchers are having the worst seasons of their career without that, they're in it. I think they're fine in 2010.

- Next week should be good. I'm going down to "Miller Park South" and should have a nice little field trip report.

Alright, that's all I got. Only a few weeks to go here and then it's onto next season. Went by pretty fast didn't it? The team wasn't as good as we'd have all liked them to be, but I have no regrets. I had some of the best times of my life following the team this season and that's really what it's all about.

Have a good weekend everybody, have fun watching your football or whatever it is you kids do for fun.

Do the right thing Doug, bring back Mike Cameron

Baseball September 3rd, 2009

Mike CameronMy undying love for Mike Cameron is well documented and if you think I wasn't biting a few nails as the August trade deadline rolled around, well, then you haven't been paying attention have you? A lot of people were pining for the team to trade away Cameron and a few of the other veterans, but count me among the people who agreed with the team's course of action. The Brewers will once again be contenders for the playoffs next year and a sell off just to save money is pointless. In fact, it's probably counter productive because as has been pointed out ad nauseum the Brewers sold three million tickets this year, therefore the Brewers need to put a good product on the field for the rest of the season and a good product doesn't go by the name of Jody Gerut. (Whether that's a fair statement or not, I don't really feel like getting into.)

Anyways, I have no doubts that the 2010 Brewers will be better than the 2009 Brewers. I mean, there is no way that the pitching staff could be THIS BAD again. Even if you put the same guys out there next year they would have to improve (5 of the top 6 Brewers in innings pitched (Looper, Suppan, Parra, Bush and Villanueva) have the worst FIP of their career, which doesn't even seem possible when you really think about it). Beyond that you could hypothetically think that the offense, despite it's amazing-ness now, could be even better next year. A full season of Weeks, GAMEL, a halfway decent Corey Hart and anyone besides Kendall, it's exciting to think of the possibilities. The team will be good again next year and I fully expect them to be a contender. Well, as long as they re-sign Mike Cameron I do. Read the rest of this entry »

Why am I supposed to feel sorry for JJ Hardy again?

Baseball September 1st, 2009

JJ Hardy Flow ChartHey, what's up gang? I'm back, I survived the swine flu. (Well, not really but it sounds better to explain the absence.) Did I miss anything? No? Not really? No trades? No 5,000 Jeff Suppan heads on the field on Sunday? Anyways, it's good to be back. You know who else thinks it's good to be back? JJ Hardy.

That's right, he's back! Today against the Cardinals, JJ Hardy will be on the roster. The only thing is he falls one day short of some MLB rule that makes no sense so he remains under Brewers control until after 2011, instead of after 2010. Reading the baseball blogs around the internet people have been calling the Brewers unethical to do this or just plain wrong. Why? Because delaying his free agency like this costs him money. To which I say, who gives a shit? Read the rest of this entry »

Keep watching, the best part hasn’t even happened yet

Baseball August 21st, 2009

Drunk Brewers fanIt seems that the bandwagon is emptying at an alarming rate. I try to keep positive because, well for one it's not very smart for me to say "stop caring about baseball, the Brewers season is over! Go find another blog!" and two, it's still baseball. Crazy things happen all the time. You just never know. Of course with every loss to the Pirates, you kind of DO know.

A recent poll on Brew Crew Ball has 1% of Brewers fans saying they won't give up on the season until it's over with 83% having already given up. 83%!!!! I'm not exactly sure what this means though. If you are among the 83%, do you still care about what happens? Or have you mentally checked out? Have you moved on to football season? If this is the case, I ask you to reconsider. This Brewers season is not the one we wanted, but it's still the Brewers season. It's kind of like a bad porno. Sure, the girls aren't as hot as you expected and they're all tatt'ed up like Josh Hamilton. Sure, there is too much closeup. Sure, the plot sucks and the music is terrible. The fact of the matter is it's still a porno, it's still people having sex. Despite it's problems there are a number of good reasons to continue watching the Brewers. Just like you keep watching the porno for the T&A, you should keep watching the Brewers for these reasons (and just like in porno not one of them is a "sausage race".) Read the rest of this entry »
