Rickie Weeks is having a rough season. (Wait, that's not right.)
Rickie Weeks is having a really bad season. (You know what? That doesn't work for me either.)
Rickie Weeks is having the worst f*cking season you could ever f*cking imagine and it really f*cking sucks. (Much better.)
I'm sure it's been very hard for Rickie Weeks because it's not like he's been playing all that differently. A quick glance at his Fangraphs page shows no huge glaring difference (besides his swing percentage, but even that is just a couple points off) and watching the games it doesn't look like he's doing anything different. He just doesn't seem to be getting any hits, ever. It sucks and as a dude who once photoshopped a bunch of Childish Gambino lyrics on pictures of Rickie Weeks it really sucks. I love that dude.
The question of "what to do about Rickie Weeks?" is something that Brewers fans really love to talk about. Some people want him benched or cut or traded or something else just to get him away from the team. It's hard to blame these people because there have been times where it's been easier to look at Snooki's vag pics than it is to watch him play. I get where you're coming from haters, but you are completely wrong on this one because if the Brewers are going to do anything this season it is going to be because of Rickie Weeks.

This Ryan Braun stuff is out of control and it is only getting worse. Please try to remember that nothing concrete has come out. The MLB has not publicly commented on this matter and they won't until a decision is made. You have to think they seriously regret that this has ever come out and wish that it never did. All we have to work with is the leaked info and it doesn't really tell us much. Ryan Braun tested for high levels of testosterone. And then he didn't. That's all we really know right now. Before we jump to conclusions we should think long and hard about this. We should consider it from all perspectives. Right now, Ryan Braun's perspective.
Hi, I'm Ryan Braun and that picture you see to your right is me. (Damn, I'm good looking.) I play professional baseball for the Milwaukee Brewers. I am a former first round draft pick who won the National League Rookie of the Year in 2007. I am also a four time Silver Slugger award winner, a four time All-Star and I won the 2011 MVP. Since joining the Brewers in 2007 we have made the playoffs twice, two more times than the Brewers did in the previous 25 years without me.
Outside of baseball, I have business interests in two restaurants in Wisconsin: Ryan Braun's Restaurant in Lake Geneva and Ryan Braun's Graffito in Milwaukee's Third Ward. I endorse a variety of products for Wisconsin businesses and also have a variety of nationwide of endorsements. Surely, you've heard of my Limelight Fusion Energy drinks or my personal line of Affliction shirts called Remetee. The odds are if you are watching TV right now, you will see me. I'm everywhere.
I have built my baseball career and my business career through hard work and protecting my personal brand. I work hard to keep myself out of controversial situations and I am a generally good person with integrity. Continue reading »
Just checked out the always enjoyable for all the wrong reasons Anthony Witrado chat from last week and seriously, what is wrong with you people? Are you stoned? I do not like Anthony Witrado, this is well known, but I am starting to think that A-dub is just Charles Manson and the people who participate in these chats are the ones out killing people. Look at some of these questions, it is not pretty.
Q: Michael, Chicago - Thanks for all of your hard work this season Anthony.
Work? He's talking about the time he spends in the mirror adjusting his hat sideways right?
Q: stu pidasso, westallica - hi anthony. just for fun, let's pretend you're doug melvin.
WHY? WHY DO YOU THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA? I've got a better one. Let's pretend you are David Carradine. Here's a belt.
Q: Justink8996 - Do you guys have an update on Alcides "baby mama" drahma? Kinda hard to root for a guy who is a dead beat dad? Guess it would be pretty awkward as a journalist to even ask him about it? "Oh Alcides by the way...." Continue reading »
