8/11/2004: Brewers (Santos) @ Braves (Hampton)


Do you all know what this means? It means that useless piece of human debris called Wes Obermueller will get to battle through 2 or 3 innings on Saturday night.


This statement is prompting a variety of emotions in me right now:


- Relief : You mean Obie's not pitching Friday? That's our next game and I was just resigning myself to his starting then.


- Skepticism: You think lil Wes would last 2 or 3 innings anymore?


- Curiosity: So who is due to start on Friday?


- Doubt: Is it fair to call lil Wes a useless piece of human debris...when, baseball-wise, that applies so much more aptly to big Wes? (Note that I specified 'baseball-wise', folks. Baseball-wise only. I'm sure they are fine men otherwise.)


- Awe: Calling a Brewer a useless piece of human debris (even just baseball-wise) reminds me of a stunning tirade that gregmag posted against Sal Bando last fall. I believe he called Bando a horrible excuse for a carbon based life form, and more besides that. Based on that statement, gregmag and I may be Brewers soulmates.


Now I'm emotionally spent.

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

Wow! Sorry to underwhelm you with my comment about Obie-Won (ha!). The sad thing is he should have been DFA'd after his awesome outing last Saturday night.


I just read the Brewers notes and saw Capuano may not go due to a stiff forearm. It's just getting uglier for the Crew. If 'little' Wes goes Friday night and Cappy can go Saturday night then I will take my seat after getting my Gumby Bobblehead. http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/happy.gif

Pods is just emulating the manager.


Oh really?


What exactly did Ned do during the game tonight that made you think that he 'doesn't know what's going on out there?'


I know you're a big Yost hater, but I honestly don't understand why. Yeah, the Helms love-fest is getting old, but I don't see why Ned continues to draw so much venom from the armchair managers on these boards.

Try fossilized,just the sight of Helms is enough to make people ill.


I'll grant with a 27 million dollar payroll Yost is in a gunfight with a cap gun while others have a shotgun,but his gritty battle chants get annoying after awhile.

Were you in full position of all your faculties when you wrote that post, rluz? http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/wink.gif
