- The Braun-Melvin feud, which, based on No. 8's half-hearted "apology" (which, I was thrilled to see, featured the playing of the infamous "what I said was taken out of context" card) before the game, doesn't appear to be goin' away any time soon.
- YoGa staking the Cards to a three-run lead before I could even get to my seat. (As Sheets' Va Jay Jay texted during the game: "Yo was the only one Braun wasn't talking about. Guess he felt left out.")
- The Brewers loading the bases in the second with one out, only to have Cameron literally run into a chopper off the bat of Kendall. Just a magnificently brain-dead play; it wasn't like the ball came off the bat like a rocket and Cam couldn't get out of the way. No, it was a high chopper, and he ran into it. You don't often see that outside of Little League.
- Aside from that second inning (where he threw 23 pitches), here's the number of pitches Adam Wainwright threw in each inning: 13, 13, 11, 14, 9, 14, 10, 14. Way to make him work, fellas.
- Sveumy AND Willie Randolph getting run by the clearly-overmatched home plate ump, who called Yo out on an absurd check-swing in the bottom of the second (without asking for assistance from the first base ump) but then refused to even ask the first base ump for help when Pujols made a similar check-swing in the top of the third.
- And, last and certainly least, Manny Parra apparently getting called back up. Hopefully, he starts on Wednesday and not on Saturday during D3S's bachelor party. If he gets the ball on Saturday, and a liquored-up Rubie Q is in attendance ... well, I can make no promises.
