Who Are These Guys?

The Brewers are playing a bit better tonight.

#42 pitched pretty well in his start - only 1 walk!

#42 has hit two home runs and a double. Pretty good production out of the 6th spot in the lineup.

#42 is flashing some fancy leather at first base - did he work on picking low throws this offseason? Or has #42 thrown so many in the dirt while trying to turn the double play that #42 has just gotten used to it? And a hustle double? Nice wheels big fella!

#42 hit an opposite field home run, which is honestly the first time I've ever seen him do that. Not too shabby two days after getting hit in the face by a pitch.

#42 came in in relief for the fourth consecutive game, which tells you all you need to know about the confidence that Manager Ken has in the rest of his bullpen. #42 pitched well again.

#42 made a couple of dandy plays at third base, and hit a double. I wish he wouldn't stand in the batter's box admiring his double, however - run, dammit!

#42 hit a key 2-run double for his first extra base hit of the season to give the Brewers a 6-3 lead.

Hopefully #42 can hold the lead in the 9th.

#42 needs to stop hitting dribblers in front of the plate. But I agree, #42 did have a solid game. #42 for the Reds, not so much.

why was 42 moved out of the lineup just before gametime?

Nice post Matt.

Ginter, according to Tommy H, #42 was scratched because he has some stiffness and he didn't want to make manager #42 angry.

My take the players fear Ken.

Is this a good or bad thing? Talk amongst yourselves...

I sense a little accountability in the clubhouse.

This is a good thing.

Holding players accountable? What does that mean?
