2-0


"I'm back biznitches..."

Thanks in large part to a Kevin "Pissant" Mench 2-run bomb and a yeoman's effort by the bully, your Milwaukee Brewers are 2-0! Come on, admit it...who else was soiling their pants when D-Bow's first pitch almost left the yard? He settled down and pitched a 1,2,3 8th. Matty Wise also pitched well.

In other NL Central news, Chris Carpenter has elbow soreness leaving Tony LaVodka and the Redbirds with a rotation of: Kip Wells, Adam Wainright, John Tudor, Bob Tewksbury, and the corps of Darryl Kile.

Instead of putting out the fires, the Astronauts bully continue to flick lit matches onto these situations. Daniel Wheeler served up a Xavier Nady bomb to put the Astros at 0-2 for the season.

Turnbow's career was about 5-feet from being over. If that ball went out, he was done. I let out an audible "Fuck" when that ball left the bat.

For those of you who watched it great game for the crew. Turnbow looked tough after he settled in giving up a shot that was eventually tracked down by Hall in the deepest part of the park (JJ was also victim to the location in the 7th) But Cappy tossed a less then stellar game but was still battling. Mench is a bitch but whatever we all like winners and he gave us this one.

Dare I say, “I like our team”

From today’s Jsonline…
For Turnbow, it was a particularly big outing to get the job done after a gruesome second half of the 2006 season.
"It felt good to get back out there," he said. "It didn't end on a good note last year so it was good to get back out there and pitch well and be successful. It was huge."
Turnbow ended the eighth inning by striking out pinch hitter Marlon Anderson, locking him up with a slider. That was the pitch Turnbow lost when he went from all-star to beaten man all in the span of two months last season.
"I threw a couple of sliders tonight and they were good," Turnbow said. "That's the first pitch that went last year and then the panic mode set in. But I've learned not to ever let that happen again."
