Just wondering if any of those moves are against the rulebook.

I'm thinking the way she moves her feet might be?

She certainly couldn't pitch when baulk'n Bob is one of the umpires.  ;D

Wow, Ryan Howard and Albert Pujols just both went terrible recently.  Well, not TERRIBLE, but not worth $25 million a year for the next few years.

Too bad, they both seem like nice people too.

 News just came in that Howard will need knee surgery, might be out for the rest of the season.  No word on if they will keep the Ruf kid at 1st or what. 

 Tonight we will see if Hamels finally has his mojo back, his last start he started to look like his old self.

Long time Brewers fan and this is the type of season I've been waiting for.  The worse they play, the better Bob Uecker's stories get during the radio broadcast.

Manny Ramirez has already undergone one "random" drug test since reporting to Triple-A Round Rock.
And he's only been there since Sunday. Manny has been busted for performance-enhancing drugs twice in his major league career so he carries a big target on his back. He's 3-for-12 with a homer and three RBI so far with Round Rock and could become a realistic option for the Rangers at some point after the All-Star break.

I would not want him to even walk into my team's club house.

Yeah he seems like it would do more good to send him from your Triple A club to your opponents Major League team.  He can dick around, take plays off and then get suspended again and leave them a roster player short.

The worse they play, the better Bob Uecker's stories get during the radio broadcast.

However, Joe Block has to go though. Wow, is he *falls asleep in 4th inning*.

I'm dreading to the day Bob leaves the booth. It's gonna be such a sad day for Brewer fans.

Good god, the Marlins are only 1.5 games in back of us right now. On a positive note, high draft pick!

I still think it hasn't been the same since Jim Powell went to the Braves franchise.  He was the perfect Straight Man for Ueck's bits.  I'm more amazed by the fact that Uecker has never worked under a contract.  They just call him up at the beginning of each season and ask him if he's got another one in him. 

I'd rather listen to Joe Block do brewers games than Larry McCarrin on the Packer games any day.  He's worthless.

I think Provus filled in admirably for Powell, and the booth didn't miss a beat after Cory became acclimated. At times, one could've easily mistaken Cory for Jim.

However, this Provus-to-Block transition, yikes.

On the other hand, the television team is solid. Anderson has become a stud play-by-play man, and I enjoy how much of a dork Bill Schroeder is. As a fan of the Crew, it's nice to have both options available.

And the McCarren reference, he's interesting. :D

So is Lincecum's right-arm still attached to its shoulder? The 148-pitch no-hitter, wowzers.

Long double header day for the Phillies yesterday, playing from 3:30pm to 12:40am with one short rain delay and one hour between games, 24 innings.  They had golden opportunities to win the first one but blew them, managed to win the second.

Ben Revere broke his foot fouling off a ball in the first game, this season it seems like when ever we have someone on a hot streak they get hurt...

Hope Cole went home early last night and got some sleep, need a win today to get back to .500 before the break.

A-Rod had a meeting with MLB Officials regarding Biogenesis & then no showed a minor league rehab game he was supposed to be at.  Rumor is MLB is aiming for a 150 game suspension for him.  :highfive:
