Brewers Preview - Big Willie Bee Style

Pretty standard fare in this preview of the Brewers by a man named Willie Bee. Except that it's written with an eye towards the gamblers who enjoy laying down a little action on baseball. Which is illegal in Milwaukee.

Some might choke on their Cheerios when reading this little nugget:


The upswing on the field was probably going to happen regardless of who was listed as owner. Thanks to some nice trades during the previous regime that also brought in a solid GM-Manager duo in Doug Melvin and Ned Yost, both of whom came aboard prior to the 2003 season, Attanasio took over a Milwaukee club that was in good hands and already had a nice park in which to play.

So, according to gambling experts, Yost is solid. Take that, Brad.

BET THE FARM ON THE OVER FOR WINS!

Did that guy seriously say it was Nix's backup outfield spot to lose?

BET THE FARM ON BUCKY.

I haven't seen such a sure thing since AP's wife ducked under the table at McGinn's claiming she had dropped a quarter.

AP said...

Maybe he has another farm?

It might be illegal in Milwaukee, but don't tell that to Pete Rose.
