WEFFPIM's Tidbits - 2012 Edition
-More concerning: Gallardo getting shelled again against St. Louis or mustering one run off Jake Westbrook? I say, why choose?!?!
-I'm sorry, Predators-Coyotes are in OT to start Round 2 of the playoffs. What do you people want from me?
-I couldn't watch the game, did the crowd boo Braun? Because there is some insanely rich irony if that did occur. If it didn't...eh, those fans are arrogant jags regardless.
-Wow, what a bomb from Weber and what a save by Smith. I HOPE YOU ALL ARE ENJOYING YOUR CHRIS BERMAN.
-My attention span is gone. This is all you get. Love it.

Good Luck, Marco...and Go Brewers.

Saw this interview. Took me a while to be convinced this was his real voice.

Cards own us in a bad way right now. I hate Saturday Fox games, I'm gonna get the Twins today. Not like I'll miss much as JR. will get lit just like daddy did last night and every other Brewer pitcher in recent months.

Flipped over to this twice, saw Gomez hit into a double play and Gamel **** up a potential double play ball. That's enough for me.

I didn't really watch yesterday but our pen got decimated, right?

I am only watching the gametracker so I'm not calling one way or another, but I think Estrada is at like 65 pitches or so...right? Makes at least SOME sense.

Our bullpen is in bad shape right now and Estrada is at like 60 pitches. It sucks but it was the right move.

Playing the Cardinals is just an exercise in futility for us at this point.

Yeah, I'm sure long relief of Mike McClendon or Veras wouldn't have gotten stomped that next inning either.

I can hear the "should have PH for Estrada" argument...but the fact that Estrada got rocked there and people saying that the bases loaded decision is validated are talking in 20/20 hindsight.

3 weeks into the season and this team is already frustrating me to no end. These are my Brewers.

Mlb channel is showing the Nats v Dodgers game tonight. Strasburg and Harper. One of the few non Brewer games I'll watch this season.
