The Fight...



I think the most important thing to be concerned with is Bushy's right arm okay? That's a lot of weight moving around...hopefully he'll be okay to make his next start.

In all seriousness, everyone needs to relax regarding the big fight. It happens. Happened in Chicago last year...Boston this year...probably happens more than we know. And of course its going to be #1 story on ESPN (aside from the late night Favre saga) because a fight in the dugout gives the talking heads something to talk about. Yes, I agree Nedly made a poor choice in words/analogies, but he was right. Its an internal matter, they'll figure it out as a team and they don't owe us anything in terms of an explanation. Manny's pissed because he allowed 4 runs in the 5th after looking awesome for the first 4 1/3. Prince is pissed because he's sucking it up this year and he's probably mad that he didn't stop the grounder to his right in that inning which would have held the scoring to only 2 runs.

This isn't going to cause the end of the Brewers season...it might even light a fire under the team's asses. We'll see, but everyone needs to take a big deep breath and realize this isn't that big of a deal. I'd be more concerned about why Parra hasn't won a game in a while and why we are atrocious at the plate with runners in scoring position. Solo homers are cool and all but they are not going to get the job done.

I'm sure that this only makes it worse for Prince, but look who is the one really giving it to him and talking him down. Braun. Braun also went over to Parra after the ordeal and said something to him. This is obviously turning into Braun's team and I don't think Prince likes that.

I hope this gets everyone going and they win 300 - 0 tonight.

Its not denial, its that I'm just not jumping off the deep end anytime anything negative happens. How is this season going to end? who knows, but all I know is right now we are 1/2 game up in the Wild Card so our chances of making the post season are good.

The past being the best indicator of the future and all:

Last year, when the Graff-CHiPs-Yosty brawl happened, the Brewers were 58-50. They got pounded by the Mets that day, too, so they were 58-51 after all was said and done. Our record in the next fifteen games? 5-10. Record the rest of the way? 25-28.

Pardon me if I'm not holding my breath expecting this to light a fire under their asses.
