Braves 3 Brewers 0: Asking For One Hit From Brewers. Just One
Yesterday, we all had to endure watching the Milwaukee Brewers in the early afternoon. If we had a job where it was easy to watch, not a problem. But there were somewhere the game could not be viewed. That absolutely stinks. That said, those people did not miss too much. Milwaukee was lifeless again at the plate. They had a few big hits here and there, but Milwaukee never came through with the one that mattered the most. Craig Counsell and Christian Yelich likely would feel the heat after this one.
@tappingthekegsports All I want is the Brewers to get one big hit. One. #foryourpage #fyp #foryou #milwaukeebrewers #brewers #clawsupmke #mlb #mlbplayoffs #baseball #mke ♬ Crash Into Me – Live – Dave Matthews Band
Here’s the thing about the Counsell move as explained in the review. He needed offense. I get the idea that Fredd Peralta was on fire, but you have to play your hands when it’s there. This isn’t about distrusting an offense rather taking advantage of what’s in front of you. Could he have gone with Eduardo Escobar there? Maybe, but I think the plan was for Esky to get in there in the later stages of the game with Tyler Matzek and Will Smith.
As for Yelich, I’m not sure what more can be said. He is a falling star. Whatever happened from 2019 to today has totally changed him. This isn’t like Ryan Braun either where when Braun fell apart, he still had moments. Yelich just looks like a different player out there. He should not be hitting third today and if he is, the Brewers are ready to lose. Atlanta and Milwaukee haven’t decided who will pitch in Game 4. Here’s what a lineup could or should look like for today.
Wong-Adames-Escobar-Garcia-Narvaez-Urias-Yelich-Cain/Taylor. They probably will not bat Yelich seventh, but that’s what they should do at this point.
