We have a black hole in our lineup from the 6-9 hitters. It's kind of sad to watch...

Starting Kapler could help fix that

I don't even care if it is Ned's fault, which I don't see how it can't be, he has to go, as soon as possible. Everything was supposed to come together for us last year, and it didn't, and then this year, we get off to a hot start, 14 or 15 games above .500 going into the All-Star break, and then this. Sure we got off to a hot start, but that was due entirely to great pitching, and clutch home runs. What happens when we don't pitch lights out? This. It's just pathetic. 3-48 with RISP over the last however many games is simply pathetic. That doesn't even do it justice. Eventually some blame needs to be placed on the coaching staff.

The fact that we've been scoring so few runs with Hardy and Braun, you're two and three hitters in the lineup, up for player of the month honors, is just amazing. Did every other hitter in the lineup decide, I think I'm going to take an extended break, or what? That just can't happen, and I think Ned needs to be blamed for some of it. That's not even mentioning his horrible decisions on keeping his starting pitchers out much longer than they should be.

Whatever, **** 'em. I'm getting tired of watching us fall apart after the All-Star break. I wouldn't be as mad over our abysmal home stand so far, after a 7-0 road trip, if it wasn't for the fact that this has happened three years in a row now. I don't know, I'm just mad, maybe I'm overreacting, but if the Brewers keep playing like this, I'm going to just stop watching entirely. I don't want to watch us implode again like we did last year...

princefielder28
07-29-2008, 09:37 PM
I would blame Jim Skaalen for the offense's woes, considering he is the hitting coach....he was the hitting coach in Cincinnati before this and all he seems to be able to teach is the long ball...how about we manufacture some runs

AA Hitting Coach Sandy Guerrero jas done an exceptional job down there and should be considered for a major league spot.

I give credit to Yost for moving McClung from the bullpen to a starter. Other than that he's been awful this year just like the past. He should have been fired a long time ago and we can only hope he finally gets the ax this year. Like I said in the MLB thread, I don't care if we win the World Series I still want Yost fired.

Doesn't the fact that he platooned McClung and Bush, who had been our hottest pitcher over his last five or so starts, kind of negate that?

Edit: If we don't make the playoffs this year, and Yost is still our manager, Melvin and Yost need to be shown the door. Hell, if we do make the playoffs without doing anything, Yost needs to be shown the door.

The Brewers hate Parra today. He struck out the 3rd out to end the 1st unscathed and Kendall doesn't catch it, leading to 2 runs. Then he gets a lead off double and we strand him on 3rd.

Edit: also robbed him of an RBI on his triple because Kendall thought he could steal for some reason. 2-2 with a double and a triple

Boston
07-30-2008, 08:35 PM

No...I hope I'm wrong, but every time there's a loss it shouldn't seem like it's the end of the world; this team can't play small ball and that costs them big time against top compeition

I don't think anyone got off.


As for the thread title last year we dropped a double header to St. Louis on July 28th and then went in a downward spiral, this year we lost to the Cubs on the 28th and are close to getting swept in a 4 game series at home. That date does not like the Brewers.

The Brewers have had a 1-5 homestand after building up all kinds of momentum with a 7-0 road trip. There hitting has been abysmal at best, the pitching has been lackluster, and the defense, well, I won't even go there. That's not even mentioning Ned Yost. Of course I'm still on this 'bandwagon,' but untill the Brewers have their first round playoff matchup lined up, I won't be getting my hopes up.

Well that's different. I think Braun should always be the three hitter no matter what the rest of the lineup looks like, but other than that I actually like what Ned has done here. Fielder has been in a slump lately so putting our 2 hottest hitters on each side of him can't hurt. JJ will still see a lot of fastballs hitting in front of Prince. Braun can clean up the baserunners that Fielder has been leaving. I think this is worth a try. I wouldn't do it every game, but worth a try. One thing I would have done if you're going to alter a lineup this much anyway is give Weeks a game in the 6 hole.

I hate to say this but this is probably the closest we get to a playoff atmosphere the rest of the year. This series we have been brought back to reality. We have arguably the worst 6-8 hitters in the majors. We live and die by the home run ball and cannot produce runs. How many teams have 3-4 players in their everyday starting lineup batting under.240 let alone in the .220 range. We are ranked 23 out of 30 teams for team batting average. It shows this series that we cant win under pressure. Is it the team or the manager? My guess would be a little of both. This YOUNG team needs discipline and Yost is not that type of manager. Look at the cubs for instance, Lou demands their respect and every player on that team gives it to him everyday. Just look at him in the dugout when a player makes a bad play. Hes heated getting right in the players face to tell him he just fu#ked up. Now, look at yost and that stupid blank stare he holds throughout the game no matter whats happening on the field. Not to mention he does not know how to manage his pitchers or the Bullpen. If Melvin thinks ths is a championship caliber team then hes out of his damn mind.

The real reason this team is slumping (http://www.theonion.com/content/news/c_c_sabathia_prince_fielder_keep)

"I should have noticed something was wrong weeks ago, when Prince, who has always had a certain fascination with the sausage races, expressed delight that we had 'signed Cleveland's huge chili cheese dog' and welcomed C.C. to the team by coating him liberally with celery salt and mustard," said manager Ned Yost. "And in his very first start, C.C. praised the way our 'great big hamburger' was hitting, and kept trying to pick off runners at first base by throwing ketchup and extra cheese to Prince."

What the hell was Ned thinking using Weeks as the pinch hitter with two men in scoring position and the tying run at the plate? Hardy's sitting on the bench and he chooses Weeks, are you kidding me? At least use Cameron or Hall if there's some reason for not using JJ. Of the 4 guys on the bench Yost goes with the worst one. Good job Ned.

Rickie and Cameron were the only two on the bench who had a hit against Campillo this year so Ned went with the stats and decided to go with Rickie, who on top of having a hit against Campillo, was 4 for 10 as a pinch hitter coming into today.

That's a big problem Ned has, he goes way too much on the splits. Rickie's 4-10 as a pinch hitter big deal, he's 78-349 on the year. You can't honestly say that you thought Weeks would get a hit. Any of the other bench players would have been a much better choice. That response looks exactly like something Ned would say and heck I wouldn't be surprised if you told be that was quoting him, but Ned's not too bright.


Another thing I had a little bit of a problem with was his mismanagement of Sabathia in Saturday's game.

That doesn't change the fact that Prince should take a seat for a while. Fielder was completely out of line acting that way. If Ned just wants to sweep this a side like he does with everything else that's just further reason for him to go.


If you saw Hardy in that clip I liked what he did. JJ went right after Fielder getting on him for how he acted. That's what a leader does, not blindsiding teammates.

It looked like he was just blowing off some steam after giving up some runs and even if he did say something direct right at Prince it in no way makes what Prince did ok. [EDIT: After watching it a couple more times it doesn't even look like Manny said a word.] What if Manny had gotten injured during that. Prince wasn't letting up, had teammates not been there to grab him and hold him back I don't want to know what would have happened. Just because an injury didn't come of it does not mean that it's no big deal.

I think Prince and Manny will "make up" and be professional about this and there won't be any lasting effects from this, but it is something that has to be dealt with.

yeah Prince is the leader of this team, no doubt. Ryan is an exceptional player and leads by example. Prince leads by example and emotionally too

I disagree. Prince does play with emotion but that is not the sole contributor to being a leader. Prince's emotions sometimes get in the way leading to ejections or emotional outbursts.

Braun tends to keep a cool head in hot situations. Did anybody see who was the main man calming down Prince after the Parra scuffle? That was Ryan Braun.

Braun has a cool head, doesn't get in trouble, and he is a little cocky that helps light the fire.

I would disagree again. My good Friend Dave Dypdall works in the marketing department and has average contact with the players (autograph signing, and what not...) and he believes by talking to the players that it is Braun. Unfortunetly many of the players are closer friends with Fielder because he is the "fun" guy during the games. Braun is considered more business that Fielder.

I think the problems with Ben Sheets result from his lack of conditioning the past few seasons; he's been injured numerous times over the past three seasons and he has not pitched this many innings since 2004. He is probably going through a bit of a dead arm period and it's a blessing that there's some off days coming up. Some people worry about CC with his pitch counts and whether or not he'll have enough in the tank come October, but he's done this before and recently; Ben Sheets can't say that.

No way we even think about calling up Jeffress. Gamel's chances are pretty slim. Escobar is the only one of our top prospects that'd be considered, but even that's doubtful.

Stetter will be back for sure to give us two lefties in the pen. Dillard and DiFelice should return to the bullpen as well. There's no reason to think Dillon won't be back as a bench player. Branyan will be back from the DL. Brad Nelson has been hitting very well in AAA and will come up as a pinch hitter. Mel Stocker will be added as a pinch runner. Rottino should be up to give us a third catcher. I think that's what will see with maybe the possibility of Joe Bateman.

Well it looks like I was wrong. Both Gamel and Escobar will be called up along with Salome. Brad Nelson, Mitch Stetter, Tim Dillard and Mark DiFelice, infielder Joe Dillon, outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. and catcher Vinny Rottino are the rest of the call ups.

The dugout is going to be crowded

Gagne is in. We lose.

*edit after 3 runs scored* Shocking. I'm apparently a better manager than Yost. Seriously.. when is he going to figure out that Gagne = lots of runs = loss?

Riske to Gagne is just asking for a loss. Prince with another un-clutch performance as he strikes out...

Yeah. Never good when you get a leadoff double and all you can think is "****, Fielder is next."

Wow, there goes the side in order after a leadoff double. I have a bad feeling about this series.

With all the help we just got for our bullpen, Ned still throws Eric ******* Gagne out there to pitch in the eight inning of a meaningful game. Go Ned Yost!

Manny drives in a pair to get it to 5-3. Hopefully we can continue the comeback.

Is Ned actually thinking about throwing Gagne out there again?

Seriously Rickie? How did he get thrown out on that. He should have made it to second easily, if he was going full speed.

I know he was having a good game at the plate, but you have to pinch hit for Weeks there.

Two key moments in the game that didn't surprise me at all.

1. Prince grounding into a DP after Braun's leadoff walk in the eighth inning.

2. Weeks striking out on a ball in the dirt with the game on the line.

good call. fielder needed a day or 2 off. and, rivera needs playing time. with 3 lefty pitchers in this series, i'd question NOT benching Fielder for a day.

If the Brewers miss the playoffs again this year, god forbid, and Ned isn't fired the day the season ends, Doug Melvin needs to be fired.

That's a lot of ifs. I think we need a managerial change no matter what but we need to finish the season before we can start talking about it at this point.

Wow... It really seems like we have a bunch of band wagon fans here. Whatever happened to saying "come on get 'em next game"??? They are 20 games over .500 my God.

Yeah I think Rickie should be benched, but Dave Bush a waste of cum? That was his first loss in a month..
