Adam McCalvy has an MLB.com article posted saying that Miller Park might be the destination for the Cubs and Astros for the games they're supposed to play in Houston during Hurricane Ike. Seems like it would be a bad deal for Houston, who would lose 3 critical home games to what would certainly be a Cub-fan majority in Milwaukee. It's acknowledged that Milwaukee was initially ruled out, but apparently there aren't any better domed options available. For what it's worth, a Brewerfan.net member 'broke' the story about 2 and a half hours ago. Also in that thread is the conundrum of what you root for- as one poster points out, you can't root for an asteroid now, because it's our park.
Here is an article I was quoted in from MLB's website. It sounds like I should have been paid for my advertising for MLBtv!
An interview with Buck Rogers, GM of the Stars. No prospect talk, just promotions.
That sucked, so here's something that doesn't.
Down at the very bottom of Brewers.com is a poll: "Pick heads or tails for Friday's playoff scenario coin flip. The Brewers will go with the majority pick." Make your choice, Brewer fans! Heads has an early 54%-46% lead as I post this, but there's still time for those who prefer tails to turn the tide.
Here's to getting more power to the POWER in their playoffs!
"If anybody needs a day off, it's Ned Yost. He has a lot of things to sort out before he can take a team to the playoffs. He can't be wound this tight and still manage. His players will kill him. I've come close myself.
But I like him. He's a little easier to take when you know why he's like he is. The man cannot relax. Pardon my French, but Ned is so tight that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass, in two weeks you'd have a diamond."
