The second half of the MLB season has arrived. What is a renewed, focused sense of purpose for many teams, has more of a training run feel for the Milwaukee Brewers: halfway out…turn around… head on home. The scenery? The same. The terrain? Predictable.
It pains me to observe that the clouds over Miller Park show no signs of lifting in 2010, but nothing about the radar has me feeling particularly sunny. After all, leading the second half charge out of the clubhouse, down the tunnel, through the dugout, and onto the field…Dave Bush.
I know that Dave’s had a nice little run as of late. And I like Dave. I truly do. I think he’s a nice #4 fella to have in the rotation. Unfortunately, he’s our present #1. I know Yo will be back, but does bumping Bush to #2 make you feel any better about this rotation?
I find it laughable that the team continues to ponder (at least publicly) whether it will emerge as a buyer or a seller by the deadline. Really? Eight to start on the road, and a clean sweep guarantees you return home still under .500. Sounds like we’re right in the thick of it!
Stranger things have happened. Is there a Colorado Rockies run in this squad? Sure…it’s possible. But banking on possible is a lot like a single guy taking Cialis. Better hope the “right moment” comes soon, or you just hauled all that bathtub water for nothin’…so to speak.
