The funny thing is, they never learn. Everyone gave up on the Packers two years ago when they lost to Detroit...and they ended up winning the Super Bowl.
I have a bad tendency to leave Miller Park in the 7th or 8th inning when it looks like they're not going to muster up any offense for a false hope rally. Only one time did they ever come back and win after I'd left. That one time I was willing to stay but I had to leave to make a dinner commitment and the game was deep into extra innings. Brewers got out of a bases loaded no-out jam, and then won in the bottom of that inning.
Yeah, JSonline stupidity knows no bounds. It's basically because the average idiot reads the journal sentinal and many really don't understand sports. They see the articles and sports blogs and then leave their idiotic comments. You don't see it on Brewerfan.net because idiots have never heard of it and you don't find them here as much because the message board link is hidden a bit on the website.
Still it is pretty amazing how stupid our fans are. You win 96 games last year, win the division, and a playoff series, now after a slow start (just like they've had the last 3 years and 4 of the last 5 years), everyone is giving up
well that takes the whole JSonline syndrome times about 100. Instead of just newspaper readers, now you have just about everyone.
And believe me, this world is full of idiots and misinformed <morons.
I know you saw it too because you commented on it, but I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this rational post on jsonline.
"Yet another series loss - getting a bit monotonous. HOWEVER, I actually felt the Reds offense was going to tear up the Brewers pitching and it did NOT. Take away Estrada's one bad inning and the Reds did NOT score more than 2 runs in any inning in the 3 games. Gallardo was great, Greinke even better today, and the bullpen for the most part stable. Chulk is a waste and Axford has definitely not been lights out this year so far. The offense doesn't have a clue right now other than Braun, but Morgan looks like he's starting to come out of it, Lucroy and Ramirez as well. Weeks .164 batting average is SO ridiculous, it's not even funny. Hart has come back to earth too. I guess we'll see what happens against the Cubs (who are also playing a bit better) this weekend, but if the Brewers can gain some momentum and get to near .500 by the end of May, they can get back into it. The first 5 series in June include Pittsburgh, the Cubs, San Diego, KC and Minnesota - teams the Crew should dominate. Despite losing 2 of 3, I'm actually more encouraged than discouraged by this series."
That makes me feel more optimistic as well the fact that we play Kansas City, Minnesota, and Chicago in interleague rather than Boston, New York, and Tampa. They need to take advantage of playing the Cubs, Mets, Astros, and Twins the next week and a half before they head back to the West Coast. I think this turns into a typical good Brewer season where they start to get hot in late May and dominate in June.
I think so too, there's just too much talent on this team to not contend. Even with the injuries, it's not like we were getting anything out of Gamel and he wasn't playing good defense either. Ishy, Green, Kottaras etc can = Gamel. Even at SS we lost Alex Gonzalez, big deal he wasn't going to hit like he was all season and his D was good but Izturis can play too. And losing Narveson could end up being an upgrade with Estrada there, a lot better stuff than dead arm junk baller Narveson.
Though that reminds me of the post someone made saying how valuable the long man in the pen is and huge of a loss to the pen it was to move Estrada into the starting rotation lol. Yeah long relief, is a real difference maker, I'll bet 75% of Brewer fans have never heard of Chulk before.
Who's Chalk? I don't like chalk dust. I sneeze when I erase black boards. Remember Eraser with Arnold? Great movie. The magnet gun was cool shooting coils of electricity. Think Iron Man could bite a power line? I bet he could. He's Iron Man, not Water Man. Now, Aqua Man would die. Why aren't multiple dice called dices, that'd be so cool. I used to smoke Kool's in college for about a week but I didn't like them since I didn't smoke for long. Why is Howie Long popular? I find his analysis to be straight to the point to the point that my mom could give his advice. Why did they bring back Miami Vice? Has anyone else played Vice City? I live in The City Beautiful. Why they put City before Beautiful I don't know.
Huh. Who's Chalk again?
I got to go to bed.
