Round ’em Up: Thursday

1 05 2008

I was going to write about yesterday’s game, but I’m a little too upset about it.  Sometimes you just need to take a deep breath and try again tomorrow.  That’s what I’m going to do.  The Round ’em Up is going to be a little short today, as there is not too much out there.  Here’s what I have:

  • You want to know why I’m upset?  Read this.
  • Should Derrick Turnbow be released?  Tom Haudricourt seems to think it is only a matter of time before Derrick gets let go by the Crew.  I must admit…Derrick has looked absolutely lost on the mound his last two outings.  He does, however, also have flashes of brilliance.  Granted, it is a guessing game with Derrick.  Like Ned Yost said yesterday, you never know if you’re going to get three strikeouts in an inning, or three walks and three hits.  I would much rather send Derrick to the minors and see if he can straighten himself out.
  • The Hardball Times right a little about the insanity of carrying 14 pitchers.  I must admit, when you have to have a pitcher bat late in the game because you do not have any position players left, that is a little ridiculous.  I hope that the Brewers do not have to resort to that again, as it did affect our offense.
  • The Baseball Analysts go over all the stats from April.  The only Brewer to make any of the lists is Ben Sheets.  The offense needs to pick it up.
