Don’t Be Embarrassed by the Brewers
Milwaukee Brewers received an ass kicking last night by the Los Angeles Dodgers. The score was 21-5. There’s no need to do a BrewCap because that’s an ugly loss and there’s not much excitement there. But what I’m curious about is how do people feel about a 16-run loss? Like some people will be outraged the Brewers had to use two position players to pitch the 8th and 9th but in reality, it made the most sense. Craig Counsell said it as much. If you’re embarrassed about last night, it’s the only game worth being embarrassed over because they had a very successful road trip.
The takes that I’ve seen in the past couple days have been wild. Some Twitter user tried to actually forumlate in his brain that this was like ‘Game 7’ because the Brewers-Dodgers had tied the series at 3 wins a piece. Do you realize how stupid that sounds? Like let’s take a minute and award no points for that kind of nonsense. The room for error is more limited than it’s been in the last couple months, but bad losses can still happen. Cubs dropped an opening game to the San Diego Padres tonight at home. The Crew is still one game back.
Are there things in this game that are upsetting? Yes. For one, Matt Albers needs to stay in Los Angeles and never come back. He’s a wreck and there’s no room for him on the team. Brandon Woodruff or Jacob Barnes should get his roster spot. Albers had tonight to make things right, and he only made it worse. Jhouyls Chacin needs to be stronger on the mound when things do not go his way. He lost his composure when the error by Jonathan Schoop happened then Brian Knight squeezed him and then a Cody Bellinger blast. Chacin needed to keep it together.
