I was at the game last night...and let me tell you...what a freaking snore.
First of all, the first two innings lasted 1 hour! 2nd, there was NOBODY at the ballpark. It felt like County Stadium in April of 1999. The paid attendance was around 30,000, but I would guess that at no point in time were there more then 25,000 people in the park. That number got significantly less as the game wore on.
As for Mr. Bill Hall? He should be ashamed of himself. I personally started two Bill Hall chants last night (at the request of basically my entire section who was begging for it) and the punk flew out weakly to center and struck out again like a little bitch. I'm DONE with Bill Hall. Done. It's over. He has officially dropped into my top 10 most despised Brewers of all time list.
Rickie Weeks? Oh...GARBAGE. Let me put it this way. You don't see many top 5 draft picks play 4 years in the Major Leagues while basically REGRESSING and still get the benefit of the doubt and play every day. HONESTLY, HOW IS RICKIE WEEKS EVEN STARTING ON THIS TEAM? The fans loathe him at Miller Park. Keep it up Rickie...you might drop into my top 10 list soon if you don't learn how to start a routine double play.
All in all, besides Durham's home run (which we all thought was a weak pop up off the bat), what a crappy game to watch live. I left after 9 innings and 3 hours and 45 minutes! That's enough for this guy.
SOMEHOW...we are still up 3 in the Wild Card. Like I wrote yesterday, it's not like we have to play ridiculous the rest of the way to get there. With 17 games left...10-7 the rest of the way.
We'll get a game thread going later today with CC on the mound...with him going...and I hate using these sorts of terms...this is a "must win" game.
