They suck you in and then spit you back out.

This bullpen is going to kill a couple Brewers fans over the next month. Cheese infested arteries can't hold up to this.

Grisham needs to stay in the leadoff spot until proven otherwise.

LOL dammit. So I was watching at work but I always leave with the girl at 4:30, and today I left right in the middle of Trent's AB. By the time I got to my car and turned on Ueck I'd missed the home run.

Talk about twisting logic around so you always have an excuse to be mad at Counsell.

I also love that the now the idea of pulling Albers to bring in Hader is now somehow a negative. Think about that. :lol:



Hader is clearly struggling and vulnerable to homeruns, so lets bring him in with the tying run on base and have a switch hitter move to the right side where his OPS and SLG are 120 points higher. It doesn't take any twisting at all to see that as a stupid move.


Exactly, and Albers has been pitching better than Hader lately. Then he pulls Hader in the 9th when a lefty is due up...Sorry CC is not good at handling a pitching staff, that’s where Derek Johnson came in.

What can you say about Grisham other than he’s been dynomite since being called up. What a season for the kid!

Can't wait to hear all of the takes when Grisham still platoons a bit over the next few weeks.

Yeah it's crazy he's went from almost falling off the prospect radar entirely and starting the year in AA to being a key contributor for the stretch run.

The fact he's always had good walk rates even when he wasn't hitting like this gives me some hope this isn't some crazy annomoly and he could be a player moving forward. Now I'd expect some regression but as long as it's not severe he can still be an above average player.
