Lay off Casey McGehee

Lost in the elation of yesterday's win was a single moment in the game that really pissed me and other like minded Brewers fans off. With the Brewers up five runs in the eighth inning and K-Rod due to bat at the top of the inning the Brewers called upon a pinch hitter. The hitter chosen by Brewers manager Ron Roenicke was Casey McGehee. Casey McGehee took about two pitches before hitting a foul pop-up that the catcher caught for the out. As Casey McGehee headed back to the dugout he was treated to a chorus of boos from the crowd at Miller Park. #areyouseriousbro

I am not here to defend the season of Casey McGehee. A .626 OPS is not good. In fact, it is very bad. He underperformed badly and now he has (seemingly) been replaced in the lineup by Jerry Hairston. If you are one of the people who believes that Casey McGehee is responsible for all of the Brewers losses this season then this is exactly what you wanted to happen. Adding to that, a pinch hit at bat when the Brewers are up five runs in the late innings is exactly the time you should want to see Casey McGehee swing the bat. If he gets a hit, great. If he doesn't, the Brewers are still up five. He was the second bat off the bench after Mark Kotsay. He didn't have anything to do with the game's outcome. He can't ruin anything. He has done nothing to deserve a boo.

Before I dig deeper into this idea of booing someone during a playoff game when your favorite team is in the midst of (possibly) it's greatest run ever, I want to tell you a story. Continue reading →

Witrado’s Quest 3

The slow news days have begun and due to MLB rules there is only a playoff game once every six days. What do we do? Inspired by our favorite site The Dugout, we've decided to follow our favorite JSOnline writer Anthony Witrado on a quest. A quest to find love, adulation and respect in a cruel world that doesn't understand him or particularly like him. Will he find what he's been seeking? Or will he fail at it, like he's failed at life so many times before? Find out in Witrado's Quest: A Miller Park Drunk Event.

In part one Anthony learned that his fellow writers at the Journal Sentinel were not fans of his. In part two convinced that they were the only ones, Anthony set off to find someone who liked him at Miller Park only to be met with more failure and a cross-dressing Doug Melvin. Blaming the state of Wisconsin instead of his own shortcomings, Anthony headed back to his home in California where his favorite team was playing a meaningful game. Continue reading →

Because thinking of the Cubs is not at all depressing

Sad Cubs FansThere's this Cubs fan, right? And his dad died (sad). His dad was a Cubs fan which means that his dad died without ever seeing his team win a playoff game World Series. While this guy is burying his dad he thinks to himself "Man, this cemetery is depressing, there's got to be some way to lighten this thing up." Does he start drinking like a normal human being? No. Laugh with old friends? No. Share stories? No. Bang a random girl in a mausoleum? No.

He decides that the best way to lighten up the old cemetery is to make it look more like Wrigley Field.

"The goal was to try and take away some of the gloominess and depression from a cemetery visit,"

Seriously, because his dad doesn't have enough bad memories of the place he wants to be dead there too. Because as a Cubs fan the only thing I love better than thinking about my dead dad is how much my team chokes every year. Because when I think of my parents being dead, I also want to think of Steve Bartman. Yeah, great idea guy. Here's another great idea: Wrigley Field divorce certificates because when I want to think about my wife leaving me I also want to think about how my team hasn't won a playoff game in two years.

Read the whole thing for a good laugh. I love the part where he says this has nothing to do with the economy, that just floors me for some reason.
