Five weeks and counting

Wise_1 Is Matt Wise having a harder time pitching since he hit Pedro Lopez of Cincinnati in the face?

– Mindy

Matt Wise seemed to have a problem with his control after hitting Pedro Lopez. When hitting someone in the face it can affect certain pitchers in different ways; It certainly did have a negative effect on Matt. It has taken him awhile to get over it and now he seems to be back on track.

Who was the last Brewer to steal home?Hall_2

-Joe R

According to The Brewers Director of Media Relations Mike Vassallo, Bill Hall was the last Brewer to steal home. It came on May 2nd against the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the back end of a double steal. Corey Hart was the runner at first. Manager Tony LaRussa told me he was caught off guard and blamed himself for letting that happen.

Cappy_1 Capuano and the Rotation

For all of the countless emails I received addressing Chris Capuano status in the rotation, that question has been answered after Chris’s last start against the Reds on August 19th at Miller Park. Although he did pitch a respectable 6 1/3 innings, leaving the game in a 5-5 tie. Manager Ned Yost decided it would be best for Chris to work out of the bullpen to try and regain his earlier form. I believe that Chris will come back to his All-Star form and be inserted back in the rotation down the stretch.

How do you explain JJ Hardy’s torrid home run pace during the first two months of the season and now his power has gone stone cold? Is it due to an injury or is it psychological?Hardy

-Scott

JJ certainly got off to a hot start and was on pace to hit 50 home runs this season. As of this posting, JJ is hitting .276 in 116 games with 23 home runs and 70 rbi’s. If the season was to end today, everyone would say thay JJ has had a great year. It’s not that he has gone "stone cold" or he has an injury, or even something psycological; JJ is where everyone in the Brewer front office and Major League Staff expected him to be.

I learned from a great Manager, Whitey Herzog, who told me to watch players who are in territory they have never ventured before and see where they are in August and September. He said that over the course of the season they will be at the level they have always been. This will be JJ’s first full season in the Majors, and maybe we’re starting to see where his level will always be.

why the **** did Yost take Soup out that game tonight after 86 pitches. no wonder you guys are losing. the redbirds needed you to win tonight.

i’m really sorry, that was a rude post.

Does anyone think the Brewers should fire Ned Yost after going under .500 when they were 14 over at one time. They’ve lost to many games when leading in to the 7 inning.And need something to fire them up with 30 games to go?

What else do you think they could do to change what is happening? It’s like the team doesnt even care that they are losing. They have always used the excuse that they are young, but it is getting old now, we need to see some results as fans.

I am a dye hard brew crew fan. I just love how does boys play baseball. they r fenomenal! but i relly think dat thay shoud soulidify der outfeeld with craig monroe. i mean did you eva see that man hit da ball!??! wonce i saw him hit it out of da infeeld. i also think dat thay shoud trad benny sheets and jay jay hardy for julio lugo and timothy wakefield. if thay dont i think dat i woud be a bit disipointed. i hope dat we do even gooder next year.
