Way to go Brewer fans!

Posted by Steve

I have to give you credit. It was a tough end to the season. I wouldn’t have blamed you if you took a couple months off to simmer. But like the loyal fans you are, you kept your nose to the grindstone. For you, there’s no such thing as an off-season. Instead, you persevered. You brought Dusty Baker back to the NL Central!

It’s a shame. That Homer Bailey had real promise. Fantasy owners, you’d better trade him soon. I also can’t wait until Adam Dunn is benched/traded for “clogging up the bases.”

I’ll end this post with some fantastic (and real) Dusty Baker quotes:

“I think walks are overrated unless you can run… If you get a walk and put the pitcher in a stretch, that helps. But the guy who walks and can’t run, most of the time they’re clogging up the bases for somebody who can run.”

“Who’s been the champions the last seven, eight years? …Have you ever heard the Yankees talk about on-base percentage and walks? Walks help. But you ain’t going to walk across the plate. You’re going to hit across the plate. That’s the school I come from.”

“It’s called hitting, and it ain’t called walking. Do you ever see the top 10 walking? You see top 10 batting average. A lot of those top 10 do walk. But the name of the game is to hit.”

“Sooner or later, somebody is going to get hurt, and then they are going to blow it all out of proportion… But go back and look at the overall picture. For a guy who is supposed to have run pitchers into the ground, look around and see our track record of how healthy our pitchers have stayed. Who has had healthier pitchers?”

“People [always] have been trying to bring me down. Very rarely do I hear what I have done. That’s OK, that’s how it is. Actually, that makes me stronger. It’s OK. What are you going to say when I kick somebody’s [rear]?”
