Brewers Game Thread: May 2017 

Post#1 » by Turk Nowitzki » Tue May 2, 2017 3:23 am

Seems like it's time to switch to monthly threads since the series threads are already dying out. Shaw with a massive 3-run bomb in extra innings to hopefully seal a win against the Cards. *knocks on wood*

The bullpen has been agonizing to watch lately. Everyone seems to be struggling a bit right now.

Always good to send the Birds below .500

I'll throw this in this thread, just in case the series thread gets locked.

Saw a stat we've lead at one point in 25 of 27 games. That seems like a ridiculous number.

I'll leave it to the mods to decide, but I think monthly makes more sense given the lack of posts in the game threads lately.

If this team had any pitching they could actually be decent. Not great or anything, but easily 4-5 games above .500 right now.

Also, he hasn't been posting too much in the game threads but it has to be absolutely killing Twirly that three of our best offensive players(Thames, Braun, Shaw) could've all easily not been Brewers if they did a scorched earth rebuild like he wanted.

This team is currently built to hover around .500. Enough offensive firepower to always have a chance and enough inconsistent to shoddy pitching to always not have a chance.

Hoo **** ray for a bunch of 30 year olds to lead us to a mediocre record. HOW **** EXCITING.
