    Par for the course, eh? I work with a guy who had box seats to game 7 in 2001. That would have kicked all kinds of ass.

    That year the Yankees should have won. Great series and would have been great for NY. Schilling and Johnson were incredible though.

    I'm skeptically optimistic about the crew's chances. They have the ability and the talent to do very well. Gold glove outfielder Gomez with plenty of speed on the bases and decent offense, Braun speaks for himself in right, and our new left fielder Khris Davis has shown power behind the plate and good defense.

    Short stop Jean Segura is a beast. No issues there and if we can keep the old guy Ramirez on third base healthy he will put up decent numbers.

    Catchers, we have two greats. A bit better defense in Maldanado, while slightly better offense in Lucroy. Neither one is heads and shoulders above the other.

    Slight question mark on second base...Weeks has been struggling big time at the plate, I feel Scooter Gennett will be taking his place there very soon. Lose nothing defensively and pick up better numbers offensively. First base is our big hole. Mark Reynolds, Lyle Overbay, Jeff Bianchi...I guess whoever happens to be putting up hits gets the nod...

    Pitchers....Gallardo, Lohse, Garza, Smith, Estrada has been doing well lately...Rodriguez...got some names they just need to produce

    Oh the tears of the opposing fans when Braun hits his third home run of the game....they taste so sweet.

    Yadi is a beast and he pisses me off every time we play you, but taking a ball in the dirt and throwing a guy out by a mile from your knees...that's pretty bad ass. Especially for a younger catcher.

    I can't remember who was pitching, but I think he worked with Yadi for a while and he said something like he had never even seen Yadi make a throw like that. I raised an eyebrow at that...even as a hardcore Brewers fan.

    The Crew has hit the ground running. They're looking good so far.

    My DBacks on the other hand would have trouble winning the Pacific Coast League.

    Let's see. The DBacks are last in ERA, last in BA with runners in scoring position, and 25th in defense. What's not to like?
