Ann Carroll, we hardly knew you.
But as a tribute, here’s a series preview, Carroll-style.
Welcome to FSN Wisconsin tonight as your first place Brewers host Barry Bonds and the San Francisco Giants. This series, of course, is a big one… for your Brewers, as they of course will see… Barry Bonds! Bonds homered twice yesterday against the Cubs to now stand just shy of Hank Aaron’s record. Bonds of course brings extra media coverage, but that’s something that Ned Yowst isn’t worried about concerning himself with.
Yowst is only worried about his Brewers team for the moment, and he says he won’t treat the games any differently. He’s more concerned with keeping the hot streak going, and how to turn around struggling players like veteran leader Jeff Suppan and second baseman Richie Weeks. Suppan was better his last time out, allowing just two runs over… six…. innings.
After yesterday’s day off, Corey Hart and J.J. Hardy are rested and rarin to go. The Brewers will need them if they are going to beat the pesky Giants tonight.
Well that’s all for now. Stay tuned to FSN Wisconsin tonight after the game for “Brewers Live!” with Craig… Coshznun and Davey Nelson. Until then, let’s send it down to Brian and… uh… (someone off-camera whispers “Bill”) Bill! Guys?
*stares robotically into camera*
Brian: Thanks Ann! Capuano and Sheets had groan injuries. Growin injuries. Groan.
Bill: Well, that’s tough to take with two strikes when you’re too dependent on the home run ball and don’t hit to the opposite field, in-knee pardner?
