Carlos Gomez didn’t choose the thug life, the thug life chose him

gomez-fightJust in case you ignored Fox Sports, Fox Sports-1, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNews, the radio, WTMJ-4, Fox6, newspapers and the internet for the last twenty four hours you maybe missed this big news story: Carlos Gomez hit a triple and then the pitcher said something to him and then he got thrown out for starting a bench clearing brawl. He then did an interview where he stated "I’m not apologizing for nothing I did today. This is my job, I’ve been doing it for eight years like that. They know I play like that. It’s not to disrespect nobody. So if they take it like that, they don’t like it, that’s fine, and I’m fine with it."

This whole thing inspired a discussion on whether or not Carlos Gomez is a thug and nothing quite captured the essence of the argument like HuskieNation TV who posted this video entitled "Carlos Gomez -Thug?" If that wasn't descriptive enough he added this: "Let me know what you guys think... Carlos Gomez...... he's a great player, but does he act like a thug much?"

Let's watch it. Actually don't. I will for you and then we'll find out if Carlos Gomez act like a thug much, together. Continue reading →

Let’s defend the Ryan Braun deal!

Think you've heard the last from me on Ryan Braun? NO WAY! We got another nine years of this stuff! (Or at least another eight months of this stuff.)

A lot of people are saying the deal is a mistake and some people are saying that it's one of the worst deals in all of baseball. Those people are all stupid. This deal is risky, but it's also smart. Re-signing Ryan Braun to this deal is the best thing the Brewers could have done.

Why? Three reasons: Continue reading →

Nyjer Morgan is eccentric

Brewers fans and much of the Brewers blogosphere is going crazy over Nyjer Morgan right now. He's currently hitting .474 with two triples and playing his usual great defense so it's understandable that he has captured the imagination of many Brewers fans. He's a solid player with good speed and he always looks like he's playing hard. (I say "looks like" because pretty much everyone is playing hard, but some people just look like they are doing it harder than other people. Nyjer is one of those guys. Not a knock, just a fact.)

What people are going even more crazy about is Tony Plush. Who is Tony Plush? Tony Plush is Nyjer Morgan's "gentlemen alter ego" that occasionally talks in the third person. Which, I don't know about you, but I think sounds completely normal. Continue reading →

THE MOST IMPORTANT SERIES OF THE SEASON

Some people think that this three game series is the most important series of the season. After all, anytime two disappointing, out of contention, under .500 teams meet in June for a mid-week three game series it has to be important, right?

Cubs fans and Brewers fans actually have a lot in common right now. They both want to fire their GM (that being said, I'd take Suppan and his contract over Soriano and his contract any day of the week, they still got four years of that guy). They both can't believe how many games their team has lost to the Pirates. They both were recently questioned by police in connection with a sexual assault at a Wrigleyville bar. They both expected their team to play at least .500. It's not been a good year so far for either team's fans and a win against the perceived "rivals" would go a long way towards healing a few wounds. For some fans, they need these wins. Continue reading →

I never want to hear Hell’s Bells again

Last night I watched the Milwaukee Bucks come back from a double digit deficit in the fourth quarter to steal game 5 in Atlanta, breaking a 14 game home winning streak for the Hawks and setting the Bucks up to close the series out Friday in Milwaukee. Despite them being down I never stopped believing that they could win and they proved me right.

Yesterday during the day I had the same feeling except it was the exact opposite. Sitting in my seat at Miller Park with the Brewers leading our hated rival Pirates 4-3 in the bottom of the eighth I prayed for runs. I'm not a religious man, I once told someone that I was sick of Jesus c-blocking me all the time, but I still got down on my knees and prayed for a four run lead. Why? I didn't want to hear Hell's Bells. I didn't want Trevor Hoffman to come in for the save. I wanted Suppan or Vargas, anyone but Trevor.

In 2009 "Hell's Bells" was the best time you could have at a Brewers game. In 2010 it sends people heading for the exits with their heads down. It makes an optimistic fan like myself break a cheese fries helmet and try to slit his wrist. Except it's not really fear. I wasn't afraid that Trevor Hoffman would blow the save, I knew Trevor Hoffman would blow the save. Not only did I know that he would blow the save I knew how he would do it too, I knew he'd give up a homerun. Probably to the first batter of the inning. What happened? Well, he gave up a homerun to the first batter and blew the save. Of course he did and it was at that moment that I realized I never want to hear "Hell's Bells" again in my life and that I think I hate Trevor Hoffman. Continue reading →
