Where did this Brewers surge come from?
It’s hard to say where a run like this comes from – early in the season, we could see the talent that the team had but it was just a matter of time as to when they could actually put it together. Believe me, we’re loving the ride right now but we would always rather take a division lead.
Ryan Braun drives me insane, we’ve developed quite a dislike, but damn if he was a Pittsburgh Pirates player all of my friends agree, we would love him. So do you think he can carry the Brew Crew to the post season?
I think he’s doing everything he can to down the stretch. It doesn’t look like he’s slowing down, but he’s certainly going to need a lot help to make that happen. As a side note, we didn’t see how you would hate him – except for the t-shirt company, last year’s haircut, and the fact that he beats down the Pirates every time he sees them.
Did you agree with trading Zack Grienke?
I didn’t right away, but the deal grew on me. We got three top-level prospects, and Zack got a chance to move to a contender. Of course, he ended up about the same, except he doesn’t get to bat now. I guess it was a wash.
So tell us the truth, did you remain faithful to Rickie Weeks?
-Nope. I don’t care for him. I find him too fragile, emotionally unstable, and even though he has his moments – he is not what I’m looking for in a long-term partner.
You get to pick one to drink a couple cases of beer with over the course of a wild night in Milwaukee. Do you pick A) Ryan Braun B) Norichika Aoki C) Tony Plush D) Other
-Oh man, There are so many to chose from. As much as I’d love to try and out-crazy Plush, I think I take Ryan Braun – we start by poppin’ bottles at his restaurant in Milwaukee. Than it’s clubbing to the break of dawn, wearing matching t-shirts, and bro-ing out hardcore. I can’t wait.
-Brewers take two, but it’s close the whole way. Kind of.
