Brewers Thoughts

I caught the Brewers/Padres game on FSN last night. A couple of thoughts:
  • I think I'm going to like Cameron at the top of the lineup. He seemed to make things happen on offense with his aggressiveness on the basepaths.
  • Actually, the whole Brewers team was running like crazy, taking extra bases, stealing bases, etc.
  • Claudio Vargas seemed to pitch pretty well, and he looks like he's dropped about 20 pounds from last year. He still nibbles, though. The Padres lineup was full of minor leaguers (most of the big club is in China, apparently).
  • Randy Wolf started for SD. His brother was the home plate umpire. Um....that ain't legal, is it?
  • Mota and Riske both got in the game. Mota pitched OK, he throws hard. Riske would have had a 1-2-3 inning except Abraham Nunez Brauned a routine throw from third for an error. I don't think Nunez is going to make the team.
  • Gabe Kapler looks a hell of a lot better wearing #33 than the last slug who wore that number for the Brewers.

Why is Rickie Weeks striking out at a 50% clip? He looks like he's back to his old self... I see no improvement and his fielding is still poor..
