The Miller Park Drunk E-Mail Show live from my parents basement

talk_show1227725709

This is a baseball blog that hardly talks about baseball so I thought we'd try something a little different this week and you know, actually talk about baseball. To do this I enlisted some help and had an email chat with Al Bethke of Al's Ramblings, one of my favorite Brewers blogs. Al mostly concentrates on the sabermetric side of the Brewers and generally takes a contrarian viewpoint on most things. When it's all said and done he ends up being right a whole lot more than he is wrong which kind of makes him annoying (I kid.) It got kind of long so we are going to break it into two parts, with part two tomorrow.

Miller Park Drunk: Okay, let's kick this thing off Al. One thing that I have written about in the past that has gotten a lot of feedback from my readers is the subject of booing. There are a lot of people out there who think it's okay to boo people who are under performing or making generally bad decisions. I was at the ESPN game this past Tuesday against the Cardinals and the crowd was openly booing Suppan when he was pulled. It just doesn't make any sense to me. You are a bit more of a Suppan apologist than I am, but at the same time whether I like him or not I am smart enough to realize that no matter what happens he is going to be starting every fifth day for the rest of the season. To me, you should never boo your own team under any circumstances. Boo your umpires. Boo your Barry/Manny/A-Rod's of the world. Boo your Sheffields. Leave your own team alone. It's almost like people who beat their dog for going to the bathroom in the house. It does absolutely nothing to change things and just makes your dog hate you. What I'm wondering is how you feel on the subject of booing and why do you think that so many casual Brewers fans think it's okay? I don't see how Mike Cameron striking out three times in a game is worse than their beloved Brett Favre throwing 15 interceptions in the first half. Continue reading →

Happy Memorial Day

For those of you going to the game (and are actually probably already there), good for you. For the rest of us, let's party.

cheesefries

I am what I call a closet patriot. You wouldn't know it by looking at me, but I am one of the more patriotic people you'll ever meet. I've cried at military movies, bought random veterans drinks (not recommended), listened to a Trace Adkins song unironically (not reccommended) and generally been very proud to live in America. I'll defend the awesomeness of America to anyone who will listen (which is another reason Al's Ramblings is awesome, btw.) It's simply the greatest place in the world to live. We get to do what we want, drink when we want, eat what we want, go to as many Brewers games as we want and then say what we want about it. What else can you ask for (besides cheese fries)?

Happy Memorial Day.
