Just saw this

Tyler Cravy didn't make the Brewers' Opening Day roster.
He was steaming mad about it, saying he'd rather work a "9 to 5 job where I'm treated like a human." The Brewers were hoping Cravy would accept an assignment to Triple-A Colorado Springs but that doesn't seem likely at the moment. Maybe Cravy just needs a day or two to cool off. He pitched well this spring, contributing a 2.11 ERA over 11 relief outings.

My guess is he doesn't know what the real work world is like. Let him go do that for a month or 2 and he will realize how good he truly has it.

I was WAY to inebriated to post anything on Opening Day.

14 strikeouts in each of the first two games for Brewer batters. That has got to change. Sometimes you just need a productive out once in a while.

For the most part they aren't striking out on 0-3 counts, a lot of them have been taking the counts full or close to that. Still early and anything can change.

I'm glad Jonathan Villar hit a bomb yesteday but other than that AB his approach has been awful.

On the flip side - Eric Thames singled after the Villar AB. Something you would not have seen out of Chris Carter. Also homered in the game. Pleased so far with Thames.

Sloppy game tonight, Bandy had issues blocking balls the whole game. Pitchers handed out walks left and right. Could have been a lot worse as the Cubs left about 9 guys on base. On the bright side, Broxton got his first hit and I got a chance to watch Almora play and have a great game going 3-4.

Nelson continues to look good. Brewers at .500.

Lets hope last year was a fluke for Nelson and Peralta and they continue to pitch well. We know this team can hit and if they can get some decent pitching they can win a good amount of games. Get more butts in the seats at home and build up that revenue so they can eventually turn that into some great free agents when the time is right.

Looks like this team might actually have good chemistry. Really like the way they are playing.

I wonder how's Keon Broxton doing? Your thoughts on him?

He's struggling right now but he'll find his groove. Just needs a couple good games to get him going.

It's amazing. I had soooo many arguments on social media with people who thought it was foolish to let Carter walk in favor of Thames.

If Thames keeps this up marginally, he would be great trade bait!

If they keep winning no one is going to be trade bait, not even Braun. They will be buying at the all star break.

I would love nothing more than a series win against the Cardinals this weekend.

Thames is unreal. Another win yesterday. Zach davies got the win but still didn't look that great. I think peralta is on the mound today
