I actually saw a Brewers game in person for the 1st time this season on Memorial Day. And seeing this team live, I realize how bad they really are.
As in my previous blog, I questioned the timing of why Craig Counsell was hired back in early May. The same team is making the same mistakes.
I watch quite a bit of baseball and even someone who does not watch much can tell how bad this team is! All you really need to see is the box score of the game Monday 5/25 vs San Francisco in the Top of the 6th.
And Carlos Gomez, I really like you as a player but how do you not know fundamental baseball and how to throw it to the cutoff man from the outfield after all these years in the league? His two errors did not help that inning at all as each player scored on his error!
That is why nobody should be safe when the Brewers hopefully start making a fire sale a month from now. This team needs to be broken up as the problems run deeper than any manager that can fix it.
Here is the box score from the Top of the 6th Memorial Day below.
