Wow, it's just awesome to hear Uecker's voice again. I had to pause and appreciate the moment when he first said "From beautiful and sunny Maryvale Arizona, Bob Uecker along with Jim Powell bringing you Brewers baseball . . . "


The boys are back baby !!!

It looks like Gameday is working pretty good now so I'm going to call it a day. Someone can take over if they really want.

Typical 1st inning for Sheets. IMO, one of the reasons why he doesn't "WIN" more games...when you consistently put your own batters behind the 8-ball early in the game, you certainly put pressure on them to score.


He has to come out ready to pitch strong at the outset, enough said.

Come on bucksman4, its his first outing of Spring Training. Its not unexpected that some top level pitchers get hit around a bit in their first outings. They are working on getting a feel for all of their pitches, and tinkering around with new pitches (for example Sheets is working on using his changeup more).


This isn't the regular season, so lets hold off criticizing Sheets until the season actually starts.


Edit: Wow that top half of the second inning was fast.

Oh, I'm not criticizing Sheets for THIS particular game...the book on Sheets is jump on him early..and during the regular season, he's known to give up big 1st innings. He has to come out of the bullpen in game-mode right away.
