If You Don't Like It - Beat 'Em!

More whining from the St. Louis media on the Brewers lack of sportsmanship. Sour grapes indeed. The content and link are below. The guy has a pretty good column, not sure why he has to make himself look so petty with the untucked shirts comment.

* When new Milwaukee closer Trevor Hoffman — the classy future Hall of Famer — got the save Saturday at Busch Stadium, he just calmly off the mound and shook hands with his catcher. Didn’t untuck the shirt. At this point I really don’t care if the Milwaukee players untuck the shirts or not after victories. Really? Is that why you are writing about it, because you don't care? Brewers fans have rightfully pointed out that they’ve seen Pujols pause to admire his home runs, which can be interpreted as a sign of showing up an opponent. Um, it is showing up an opponent. But I admire the old-school guys like Hoffman who just get the job done and walk off. The old-school guys are the kind who just hand the football to the official after scoring a TD, because they act like they’ve been in the end zone before and they are sure they’ll get there again, so it’s no big deal when they score.

In other news, it looks like Rickie may be on the shelf for some time with that nagging wrist issue. Way to jinx "The Summer of Rickie Weeks" QB!

I don't know if this is positive or not, but it is the opposite wrist that he had all of those problems with.

We'll see I guess.

Agreed VaJ. It sux, but I would be more worried if it were the same wrist. On the bright side, this gives the organization an opportunity to look at some of the other young talent in the system.

And Gamel already has a 3-run dinger! Kick A$$!
