Milwaukee Brewers (44-50) @ Philadelphia Phillies (42-52)
Monday, 7:05 Randy Wolf vs. Doc Halladay
Tuesday, 7:05 Zack Greinke vs. Unlucky Lee
Wednesday, 1:05 Marco Estrada vs. The Vanimal
Beer Makers Offense:
R - 415 (14th)
AVG - .244 (23rd)
OPS - .729 (17th)
Ryan Braun, with or without PEDs, is a beast (.309/.988, 61 R, 26 HR, 65 RBI, 16 SB). Japanese rookie Norichika Aoki is batting .285/.787, A-Ram .277/.817, and he who wears his sunglasses at night Corey Hart .258/.810. The only regular performing poorly is Rickie Weeks, who despite his .195 batting average still has a .649 OPS is still better than Placido Polanco's (.629).
Beer Makers Pitching:
ERA - 4.17 (20th)
WHIP - 1.37 (23rd)
BAA - .263 (25th)
The Wolfman isn't a quality pitcher anymore (5.60 ERA/1.56 WHIP), but the rest of his rotation mates are. Greinke, who might be making his final start as a Brewer, and reliever turned starting pitcher, Marco Estrada are strikeout machines. Their bullpen is in taters though, especially the back end with K-Rod and Axford struggling to keep leads late in games. Sadly, they still have a better team ERA than the Phils.
What I'm Listening To:
Children bickering, whining, and being overly loud. (Currently residing at a beach house with 6 kids all 7 years old or younger).
What I'm Drinking:
"Apple Pie"- apple juice, brown sugar, cinnamon stick, dash of vanilla, and a lot of moonshine. Goes down warm like apple pie.
Cliff will still be stuck on 1 win, Estrada K's 12, Phils lose series.
