3 day games.
My friend asked me if I wanted a frozen banana, I said "No, but I want a regular banana later, so, yeah."

Reality check?
Oh man. Milwaukee. Damn.

Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs. And take them down.

I can't believe Villar is hitting 3rd in this lineup, or any lineup right now.

So we are 6 games over .500 and in first place in the central and tied for fourth most wins in baseball right now. This simply can not be real. All while our starters that we thought we had to count on haven't been very good, Braun has been injured and we have a roster resembling the movie Major League. I'm going to enjoy this while it last.

Something special is happening — and it’s not happening because of a couple of lucky bounces. It’s happening because my guys are for real.

Espino helped by the wind blowing in, but 1-2-3 innings so far, working quickly nice job. Big breaking ball for the K at the end of the second. Other guy at 66 pitches after two.

If I am not mistaken, if the Home team is trailing in a cancelled game (currently delayed in the top of the 6th w/ 2 on and none out) we only need to complete 5 innings. As it currently stands, the Brewers would win this game. Honestly, kind of hoping that is the way it goes :D

For sure, I wasn't confident the pen was going to hold up for 4 innings. How does that work does it automatically become an official game if it's called today or would they try to resume play tomorrow if there was time?

I'm fairly certain, because 5 innings are in the book, if the weather delay leads to the game being called the Brewers simply ring up the 'W' as is. No future game.

I don't think they are going to call this one. Sounds like the rain is on the way out.

Yep. Apparently, the grounds crew is already tending to the field. Play ball! Let's get these baserunners past home plate. :)

Oh my, I just saw the Villar pop-up calamity that brought runners to 2nd and 3rd. Schwarber, for the lulz:

Drake is a decent 6th-7th inning pitcher. Don't put him in a save the game situation and just let him relax into a lead and throw his splitter and off-speed stuff to set up an average fastball.

After a slow start Domingo has had himself a solid season. The Brewers will have an interesting decision with him at some point with the OF's they have coming up in the next couple of years. Curious to see if they view him as part of the core or try to move him.

Our situation with the OF is so interesting, there's many different paths we could potentially take
