Slicin’ It Pretty Thin and Havin’ Fun

As much as I want to hate the Milwaukee Brewers right now, I’m finding it very difficult to criticize their style of play.  How can I?!?  These dudes are MACHINES!

They are getting sound pitching from both their starters and their pen.  They catch the ball.  They make all the routine plays.  And boy can those Brewers hit.

But perhaps the best part of the Brewer’s m.o. is that they’re unconventional.  I mean, Prince Fielder is fat.  I mean FAT.  Also, Nyjer Morgan (aka Tony Plush — AHHHHHHHHH!!!) is insane.  And John Axford looks like he just stepped out of a Civil War reenactment.

Of course, nothing could be as unconventional as their storied radio broadcaster, Mr. Baseball himself, Bob Ueker.  Artie Lang explains why:

If you’re not havin’ fun, you’re not doin’ it right.

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    I pretty much adopted the Brewers as my NL team. I love Miller Park, and the Milwaukee fans. It’s also hard not to like a team named after people who make beer.

    Mike — I have to agree. I was impressed by that as a child. I was… in awe, really.
    Blue Jays Nest — You’re right on that. The thing is, when you have good pitching, you’ll win regardless (ie 2010 SF Giants), and their starters have been great. As long as it’s not the Cubs ahead of us I can sleep at night. Sorta.
    Emma — Glad you liked it! I agree. Glad to hear Vin signed on for another year though! He has found the fountain of youth at Chavez Ravine.
