Brewers go over 800K in attendance in their 25th home contest. That has them on pace for just under 2.6M, though one would assume that barring a winning streak, they will fall off to 2.5M or so, maybe even the high 2.4's. They drew 2.531 in 2013,...

Callaspo talks reopen, and the Cubs choosing to DFA Coke, despite excellent velocity and fancy newfangled stats being solid. One wonders if the Dodgers have promised to DFA Callaspo, which was said to be their plan anyway, as they want to rid par...

It's been a while now, but no one seems to remember the Brewers only have four bench guys. Limits strategery, especially when down 5-1 to one of the best pitchers in the game. That said, it would appear Blazek is in the process of being stretche...

Scott Martens just compared Arcia to Alcides Escobar. He's as close to a can't miss as the Crew has.They like Sardinas, and Rivera, and H Gomez. But Arcia is the guy they have planned to be their SS, as soon as early/mid 2016.

Will Smith says they are interviewing him in person, so it will likely not take place until next week. That means his suspension, whatever length they eventually decide on, will probably begin a day or two after said interview. That does a couple...

No way I'm going to finish this Brewers' trade piece today. Look for it later in the week.

Who is freaking out? They are selling millions of them, and barely anyone panics. Heck, some folks panic about everything. That is why people ignore them. The worst thing that ever happened to the Rambling son was one evening he slipped after g...

Specifics finally leak out on Bucks' arena financing...current taxes on car rentals, hotel rooms, and restaurants in Milwaukee to be transfered from current Wisconsin Center District, which currently oversees the WI Center convention center, the U...

Jungmann is almost certainly the SP coming up from Colorado Springs. I have to imagine if they had a dozen more wins, they might look elsewhere, but because they are where they are, this is what teams do when they're looking to get younger. While...

Brewers' notes...Fiers will start tomorrow on short rest. Then Nelson and Lohse FRI/SAT on regular rest. Garza will be skipped to allow him to get some extra rest (a sign he is probably not 100%). SUN's SP will be brought up from AAA. Segura will...

WI has a $500M surplus, rated "mostly true" by left leaning Politifact. Every day, Dems must just wake up and dread the good news they know is about to come. Don't forget, the previous governor left the current administration with a billion dolla...

Isn’t it ironic that McCauley Caulkin now looks like the kind of guy you’d be afraid would break into your house while you were out of town.--Dennis Miller It's funny because it's true. 

Controversial? The only way this is at all controversial is if you are of the belief police lives do not matter....which is exactly what many are saying, though they aren't bright enough to realize it.

Wonderfully said.

Another day, another horrible decision by a school. They just don't seem to have any idea what they're doing.

Blaze pink? Can't be uglier than orange. I have often wondered why they don't make reversible jackets, as that orange color is pretty much unwearable outside the hunting season. Maybe they make them and not many people buy them. Whenever I menti...

The irony is that Travis Ishikawa is probably the most similar player to James Loney in MLB, and TI was DFA'd yesterday. There's a match that makes so much sense, you know it will never happen.

I think Blogger ate this yesterday. I DVR the Memorial Day concert each year, and the Armed Forces Medley is always my favorite part.

There is no movement quite as full of crap as those that push "natural foods," "natural remedies," and the like. People bemoan the pharmaceutical industry and insist these potions work, talking about their lack of chemicals, additives, and that t...

Let's not pretend this isn't true. Most fans are so casual they can't spell "plan."

The left aims to make birth control more difficult and costly. It's all about power and an excuse to raise taxes. Just like Obamacare.

Incredible building that looks like the USS Enterprise.

I may DVR this just to watch on mute when I'm saddened by life.

Callaspo rejects trade, deal is dead at present time.

By the way, they lied. If my record was as bad as theirs, I would too. I doubt very much if man could effect the weather/temps if we tried our darndest.

Bucks' new arena "close," expected to be announced Wednesday. This sounds very positive, especially that the state's contribution is less than Walker's plan. Barrett saying the funding is "very complicated" tells me just how over his head he is....

We're in the very best of hands.

It's almost as if the NYT doesn't print the truth. That's because they don't. Far left biased drivel.

Watching TVLand this morning as I review business. Hard to believe Mary Ann's outfits made it past censors...51 years ago. I promise you she could not wear them to many public schools today...of course, somehow the idea of how much skin is covere...

Minutes after I say trades rarely happen now, the Dodgers and Braves are making a swap, pending approval. I assume ATL is getting an actual prospect, while giving LA "veteran minor league depth."

I found it hard to believe Dominos feels the government is being shortsighted. Obviously, they don't even realize what a global power the USSR is...oh, never mind. We're in the very best of hands.

Charlie Brown may be our best modern day philosopher.

BREAKING: Bucks' arena proposal expected to be announced later today. I actually got an email last Thursday saying the two sides were "in agreement on a funding package," just basically dotting the I's and crossing the T's. Since I had no idea i...

You realize, if a black student asked for a "non white" adviser, the request would be granted quicker than you can say "reverse racism." Personally, the request seems a bit off to me, but I've never had PTSD either.

Without getting into detail (privacy laws you know), had to reschedule my day and week a bit. Since I have some time, I think I'll go ahead and go over the likely veteran trade candidates, with some info like contract status. This is early, as mo...

Kids do pick up their ethics, or lack thereof, from their parents. You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash But you might feel better if I gave you some cash The more I think about it, Old Billy was right Let's kill al...

Of course they are. Primitive man went barefoot. They died in their 30's.

They lie. Because they don't like what the charts show otherwise.

Ezra Klein is off to an early lead in the stupidest thing ever said on Memorial Day contest.

Counsell says they are unsure who they will start WED, might go with Fiers on short rest, which would delay decision until next Tuesday. Might give Blazek time to "stretch out" or possibly get Wil Smith back.

On the good news front, Segura plans to return Friday, and Lucroy got the all clear to start a short rehab, aiming for next Monday.

Peralta on DL, expected to miss 4-6 weeks with oblique strain. Dave Goforth brought up from AAA. I assume Blazek will take Wily's spot in the rotation. This is likely to be "the final straw" for the Crew. While they will continue to hope for a 15...

Liz throws hard, 94 on average, but is wild and gives up HR's. Reminds me of Alfredo Figaro a bit. FYI, Figaro is playing over in Korea and pitching well, because it's equivalent to AA or so.

One of the strangest half innings you'll ever see, still just two outs.

Nice call, blue. How is it possible to be as bad at your job as these clods? To take away a HR when you're not sure is about as painful as it gets. How about they give a fraction as much effort calling balls and strikes as they do getting face t...

Love, love, love the Brewers' camo letters and caps. The fact that unpatriotic people are "offended" makes it even better.

Note the high ERA's on this list, even though the list is the pitchers who are allowing the least "hard hit" balls. Pitchers don't control where the ball goes. Grounders and bloopers hurt just as much as line drives.

The Athletics, Phillies, Brewers, Rockies and Reds could have the best big-league talent on offer at the trade deadline, two executives tell the Boston Globe.--MLBTR Throw enough teams out there, you might just pick the right one.:) Everyone ke...

These are the stepsons of a distant cousin of mine. Thank goodness we have such brave young men to serve.

Background on this pic. I won't pretend t...

Freedom is not free. Many warriors have made the ultimate sacrifice to maintain our freedom. Thank you from a grateful nation. Or, of course, if you are not patriotic, play some Dixie Chicks and ponder a move to Cuba...there's no rules agains...
