The Cardinals Players, Fans and Writers. A Bunch Of D-Bags

So after a 2 game series in St. Louis against the Cardinals where the Brewers split 1-1 and ended there season series against the Cards 10-5 (tell me how my ass taste?!) I now have as much hate in my baseball heart for the Cardinals as I did for the Cubs and Yankees. Their players, fans and media has complained about everything from how the Crew untucks their jerseys after wins (a tribute to Mike Cameron's Dad, something Cam has done for years), how Braun admired his game winning HR during their last series and how Carlos Villanueva got emotional after recording a huge third out late in the game in a tight spot. This article from St. Louis Dispatch sports writer Bernie Miklasz explains it all. Enjoy, it shows how big a douche bags the Cardinals and everyone involved with them is.

They have the nerve to call our team out when Albert Pujols is one of the most cocky players in the game today and admires every HR he hits. Yadier Molina constantly runs his mouth and complains to umpires during games and acts like he needs a bib. Oh and how can we forget their manager Tony LaRussa. Remember he was picked up for drunk driving not along ago when he fell asleep at the wheel at a stop light and thought there was two Z's in the alphabet. When did the Cardinals become the baseball etiquette police? I don't know either. I think they are just mad that the Brewers whooped their asses all season long, the Cardinals are not the big bad bully in the NL Central anymore. You stay classy St. Louis.

Good And Bad

Good: CC Sabathia and Ben Sheets have tossed back-to-back complete game shutouts of the Washington Nationals and the Brewers have won 5 straight games.

Bad: Ryan Braun left yesterday's game after his first AB with an injury. Not really sure what it is but it's some kind of strain on both sides of his ribcage. He is day to day, shouldn't be serious but I'm still very worried. I mean we are talking about our franchise player and NL MVP candidate. He is out of the lineup today and I would assume tomorrow for the series finale against the Nats. Let's just hope and pray he is back Tuesday night against the Padres.

Lets Not And Say We Did....

As it concerns to talking about the Cubs series. The Brewers just flat out did not do anything well. Hit, pitch, play defense, run bases they just didn't do anything well and that is why we got swept. End of story, lets move on.

Now that we have moved on from that small (but awful) skid mark on this season more positive things have occurred! Yay! The Brewers just finished up a 6 game road trip with a 4-2 record, that is awesome. How this team has suddenly turned the corner and is able to actually win games on the road is mind boggling, unexplainable and awesome all at once. Sure they were wins over Atlanta and Cincinnati but he wins on the road are wins on the road I don't care who you play.

I'm trying to figure out why the hell Ned Yost continues to play Craig Counsell at 3B over Russell Branyan when righties are on the mound. Don't get me wrong, I like Counsell he is a nice bench who should get spot starts now and again at SS for Hardy, pinch hit and be a defensive replacement late in games at 3B for Hall or Branyan. But for Yost to be starting him as much as he has at 3B and batting 6th while Branyan and his big stick rot on the bench just doesn't make a lot of sense. Yost needs to get his head out of his ass and quit the man love for Counsell and go back to the strict righty/lefty platoon of Branyan and Hall at 3B. It's simple Hall mashes lefties and Branyan mashes righties. Look at the splits, they prove it.
