Bullpen Melts Down, Dumatrait is Garbage, Brewers take last two of the series
While the author has repeatedly stated a preference towards the Brewers, or anyone else, other than the Cubs winning the Central, the losses the last couple of days don't seem all that great. On Saturday, Harang left with a lead but the normally reliable units of the bullpen gave it up, then picked up the loss in the 9th. Burton was subtastic and Weathers may just be too fat this late in the season. A boiler like really takes a toll over the course of 162 games.
Today, Dumatrait entered his name into the recordbooks for crappiness. He allowed the first five men to reach but the best part is that the first three, Rickie Weeks, J.J. Hardy, and Ryan Braun, all hit home runs. The author feels that if anyone is going to set a record for being generally shity on the mound, Phil Dumatrait is as qualified as anyone else. Nice work Phil. We got to see the whole gang today, Saarloos, Guardado, McBeth, Coffey. Those guys give me something to look forward to for the rest of the season.
