I just got home from the game on Sunday.....

....A lot of people are going to want to blame Yost for this loss. Some will want to blame Wise and some will want to blame Cordero.

....but I think it's pretty obvious where the blame should be placed for today's melt-down.

Two words: Brewer's Management.

It was the front office that let Wes Helms get away a few offseasons ago rather than lock him in to a long term deal, and that decision has come back to bite them. I sincerely hope Melvin can sleep at night.

I think I should change the title of the post to "Shit the Bed"

Why is Matt Wise not in AAA? Can somebody please add up his numbers since drilling that guy in mellon?

After Wise gave up that blast and he was pulled, I was confident Cordero would bring it home. I turn off the game with 1 out in the ninth and go get some stuff done. I get back home 3 hours later to see they lost in 11 and was like WTF HAPPENED???!!!!

That was a total kick to the jimmies!

Yes it is Yost's fault and I hope that is an utterly sarcastic comment about Wes Helms. He is garbage.

I'm glad people are leaping off the bandwagon of this first place team. It was getting crowded anyway...

On a totally unrelated sidenote, there is a band out there called No More Kings that have a music video on youtube for a song called "Sweep the Leg".

....yes Krey, sarcasm was definitely present in that last post. Here's some more:

During Yost's post game press conference, he was asked why he decided to pull Suppan after only 83 pitches and 1 ER, especially since he's seemed pretty willing to leave other pitchers in longer and Suppan was basically billed as an "innings-eater" when he was signed AND he's been so focused on resting the bullpen recently...

Paraphrasing Ned: "It was really hot in the stadium last night and it was tough.....it was just draining out there."

My thought: This is exactly why I was against MLB & Bud Selig's insistance on changing the rules so that baseball games would now be played in August & September. If baseball continues to be played in summer months, we run the risk of eventually calling these guys "The Boys of Summer" or something like that. To be fair, there is no way that the Brewers could've foreseen Sup's heat tolerance, b/c he was pitching in Anchorage last year; he obviously hasn't acclimated himself to the incredibly hot Milwaukee weather. But hey, that's why winters here are so nice.....

(FYI-Glavine is over 40 years old and he threw like 105 pitches in the same heat last night.)
