Sunday Funnies. You can't spell "HADER" without "HR".

Brewer's closer Josh Hader gave up 2 homers the other night in an extra inning loss to the Giants, which brings his 2019 total up to 9.
That's also how many he gave up all last year.
Just a crack in the Brewer armor.
A disturbance in the force.
One of those things that can live in Hader's head no matter how much he may try to forget.

Happy Sunday.

    Managerial change making a difference I think. Hopefully the changes to the amateur scouting department also bears fruit

    David Ross might be worthy of a little credit, especially sorting out the bullpen issues.

    this team is amazing.  i want more than 60 games of this.  darvish since mid-season last year has been great stuff.

    also, wick got to close.  kimbrel hasn't worked in quite a while.

    Ha! Hope Nico goes on a heater!

    "Not thrilled"...as if on cue, Nico leads off with a double and a later Schwarbsbomb.

    Updated Bullpen tiers:

    Tier 1 (Closer/Firemen)

    Wick and Jeffress (interchangeable)

    Tier 2 (Preferred Setup roles)

    Tepera, Sadler, Rea (!)

    Tier 3 (Face lefties exclusively if possible)

    Ryan (has to get that fastball out of mid-80s or head to South Bend)

    Winkler 

    Tier 4 (Long man innings eater)

    Underwood 

    Tier 10 (reserved for use when either up or down by 10+ runs)

    Kimbrel

    I think that covers it?

    Wait.  The bullpen can get worse?  That's unpossible.

     

  • Eric S 8 hours 19 min ago (view)

    Well, shoot.

    Here we go again: Nico, Rizzo, Javy, Willson, Schwarber (LF), Happ, Bote, Souza, Caratini

    Not thrilled with Nico leading off when the greatest leadoff hitter in baseball history was available but whatever

    bryant was supposedly gonna be in the lineup but he has left ring finger and wrist hurties.

    I really think they could play .500 from here and would take the division.

    But leave room for at least a week long slump due to bullpen implosion.

    Don't get too giddy but...

    One Quarter of the schedule is complete.

    Pace is for a 48-12 record which when extrapolated to 162 games is about 130 win season.

    Is it all downhill from here?

    Cardinals at White Sox game tomorrow is possibly canceled per Sun-Times reporting that Bob Nightengale of USA Today and Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported the postponement.

    Reds just lost in tough fashion to the Royals. Down 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, one out and rap into a 5-4-3 dp to end it.
