Really? That's pathetic.

Do they still let you tailgate in the parking lot and bake in the hot sun and blacktop as you get schnockered?

I went to a game last year and there still was some tailgating. Not like when I was a kid though.

How can they think that would be bad for their image when they are called the Brewers?? Next thing you know, they'll think they have to change their name.

Well, if the Indians get to keep their name, then the Brewers should get to keep theirs.

The Cubs are defintely in striking distance and playing well.
So I think it'll end up a close race.
If Sheets is hurt again (so far doesn't sound super serious), the Mil is in trouble.

If he's close to the record* count on him sitting out, he will break it in SF, not Milwaukee, not LA, not anyplace else.

i always find it peculiar when a batting coach played zero games in the majors (Rick Down)

i always find it peculiar when a batting coach had a mediocre at best batting average when he played in the majors (Hojo)

what can Hojo w/ his career .249 avg, help someone like Wright or Reyes?

However, Ricky Henderson as 1B coach, that's great move....he can show the players tons of things about reading the pitcher and foot work etc

I see what your saying and agree with you about Rickey. However, just because a coach didn't have as much success playing doesn't mean he won't be successful as a coach. Sometimes the bench or role player can be a successful coach. Take Bobby Valentine. I thought he did an amazing job in 1999 and 2000 getting the Mets as far with an outfield of Agbayani, Timo Perez and Jay Payton.

You know, I like Willie, but I miss Bobby V. sometimes. WIllie gets second guessed a good bit and some of it is deserved. The Mets did win their division and I am not one of those fans clamoring for Willies head despite the teams recent struggles in June and early July, I just think he hasn't always made the right moves.....but then again, I'm some smuck sitting at home watching the game on my couch with 4-5 beers in me when that happens.

Also, surprised we haven't seen any trades in MLB yet. I knew alot hinged on Buehrle getting dealt. With the Mets hopefully getting Alou and Pedro back will be like making a trade.

Big Grin I just plain sucked at both playing and coaching!

There are a TON of great coaches out there that were lousy players. The two do not go hand-in-hand.

i just find it odd, that's all.

If I were a current major leaguer, I would listen a lot more closely to my batting coach if he were Rod Carew or Tony Gwynn, then say Hojo.

Quick, get Omar on the phone and call up Ty Cobb
