I hate the Brewers and I want blood. That’s really all I have to say. I’ve hit the dreaded “wall” this season. You know, the “wall” that makes you not care about anything baseball-related, and especially Cubs-related, and I just want to cheer for the Blackhawks and Bears and someone wake me up when the Cubs are worth watching again. That wall.
And yet, here we are. I have a blog, and it happens to be about the Chicago Cubs, so I’m condemned to write about this team until their last dying gasp this season. In fact, “gasp” is probably too strong a word. More like a “wheeze” or a “gurgle.”
Anyway . . where was I? Oh right, the Brewers. If I have to continue to watch this team, there’s no one I’d rather play than the Brewers. Why? Because the Brewers are extremely beatable, because I hate them, because I want the Brewers to finish in last place, because Ryan Braun taking a suspension during this lame-duck Brewers season is total bullshit, and because I hate them. I might even hate them more than the Cardinals. I have a grudging respect for the Cardinals and what they manage to do every year. On the other hand, I have zero respect for the Brewers and wish they would fall down a well, along with Ryan Braun and his entire t-shirt line. Is it wrong to hope for a fight?
Someone asked me the other day if I realize I’ve given up on any kind of baseball analysis and am now just ranting like a crazy person. Yes, I do know that.
A few things to note: 1) Luis Valbuena is inexplicably hitting second. Not that it really matters, but still. 2) Can anyone confirm that Edwin Jackson is now pitching every other day?
