    Ryan Braun is a sissy.

    The pirates. We're talking about the pirates. Not a game. Not an actual game. The Pirates.

    Pirates = perpetual sellers. Delwyn Young called Braun a coward. In the words of Prince Fielder…"Who The F*** is Delwyn Young?" Always nice to go to Pittsburgh for a AAA exhibition in the middle of the year.

    They'll blow it in the playoffs.

    Didn't this team lose to a community college? Pittsburgh, you had it coming and you have more coming now…who the hell is Delwyn Young?

  • Jim Rosati

    Delwyn Young hit a 3-run bomb off you guys, that's who he is. Why don't you stop caring about what the Pirates are doing. Looks to me like you guys should be worried about not making the playoffs, which seems rather likely at this point.

    Look at all the tough Brewer fans coming over defending their squad…via "anonymous" comment. Great work Tim.

  • Matt

    WOW, these Brewers fans have no sense of humor. Why so defensive and insecure?

  • Jim Rosati

    It's because they are fresh off a 15 year streak of not having a winning record. They know, deep down, that they truly suck.

    So they're riding out they're time in the sun for a few years (if you can call being a mediocre team in a crappy division being in the sun) by picking on the loser team that they used to be.

    The Brewers are like that loser kid in elementary school who transfers and becomes "cool" at his new school and bullies the loser kids there to make them feel better.

    The Kerwin gear is pretty funny. Kendall was bad news while he was here-nice to have a so-called team leader welcome new players to Hell. Kendall is still hitting .239 and all singles I am sure. Looks like Macha cannot control that bunch. Kendall is a cancer everywhere. Kerrigan is probably the best pitching coach I have seen in 45 years, and I love his competitiveness. Has the team made a lot of mistakes? Sure. But the Brewers are talking tough because of their win streak? See me after the Brewers have beaten the Red Sox 14 games in a row. Beating up on a little kid who is trying hard to grow up is not something to brag about. The point wasn't the one win-it was the bad behavior of the Brewers. It is fortunate that the game is so great, because it is surviving the abuses that breed jerks like Kendall. Sooner or later, the lack of a salary cap and the outrageous salaries and prices will kill the game. The seats cost too much because the salaries are too high. Teams like the Pirates cannot make a single mistake due to the imbalance. The players were not prima donnas when many of them took off season jobs to support themselves. Real sportsmen are happiest when everyone has a chance, not when money is used to deliberately create a lack of competitive balance.
