moving on

The Milwakee bullpen is . . . bad. 

As I was watching their "closer" throw batting practice to our hitters, I was trying to think of a word that would adequately describe how terribly they've performed. I couldn't. And yet they beat us today. 

Does that mean they aren't that bad after all? Probably not. 

Does that mean they aren't going to blow more games than they hold or save? Probably not. 

Does that mean they still have a chance to make to the post-season? Well, that's why they play the game, isn't it? 

I don't hold this loss against Izzy. (Not that I ever do.) The team played hard and Izzy gave up a bad-timing hit after a steal after a walk, and it just wasn't meant to be. 

Glaus had 3 hits and raised his season average a few points. Flores walked the number 3 batter to get to Prince Fielder. In other words, the game had its high points. But I'm ready for tomorrow so I can put this one behind me.
