Poor Question

Anybody catch the in-game text question on Friday? It was "Who is your favorite Brewers Personality" with the choices of: Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder, Ken Macha, or Mike Cameron. Really? Those are the choices? Let's break it down:

Ryan Braun: His personality is that of an arrogant asshole. That's fine as long as he keeps hitting bombs and annoying Tony LaVodka.

Ken Macha: Seems like a good guy. Throws in a few zingers, and gives a good interview. Compared to Ned Yost, Macha is Chris Farley. I guess this is a legitimate choice, but picking your 59 year-old manager as your "favorite personality" doesn't seem right. Unless it's Mike Ditka.

Prince Fielder: Does he even have a personality? I guess he likes to fight Manny Parra. SIDE NOTE: I saw Manny's numbers pre, and post-Prince scuffle in the's not good. I'll try to find them again. END OF SIDE NOTE. Prince's interviews are dry toast and he mixes in the occasional giggle between numerous nervous coughs. How is Prince an option for this question?

Mike Cameron: Again, nothing much going on here. By all accounts, he's a good guy and a true professional, rather than a big time "personality."

All-in-all a silly question with terrible choices.

In other news, the starting pitching is, in the words of Joe Namath, strugggellingg. It's Yo and hold your breath until Yo pitches again.

Are you confident when Suppan takes the hill?

Well, you know, everytime Prince talks, you know, you hear the phrase "you know" at least 5 times per sentence, you know.
