In the News (4/14)

- The Philadelphia Inquirer picked up on our "See Off Ge-Off" campaign. Not exactly a rave review... It seems the Inquirer and a few of the posters on the related post on aren't grasping the concept (though most of the BrewerFan posters are very supportive of Jenkins). It's not that Jenkins can't handle getting booed or that people won't boo him, it's that he deserves applause for a great career in Milwaukee. Anyway, look for more Jenkins-related posts in the coming days.

- Gallardo gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts in his last rehab start before joining the Brewers' rotation. He wasn't perfect, but he should be good to go this weekend for the Crew in Cincinnati. 

Adam McCalvy says Dave Bush is in danger of getting sent to the bullpen if he pitches poorly Tuesday. At this point, that appears to be a likely scenario for when Gallardo returns. He may be pitching for his job Tuesday.

- Gabe Kapler is the early-season surprise. Jason Kendall and Prince Fielder are also on the list.

- Tuesday is Jackie Robinson day. The Brewers, with five African Americans on their roster, have more black players than most rosters. The Journal-Sentinel article talks about the chemistry between the black players and the rest of the team.

- Andrew Wagner hits on all kinds of Brewers news in this OnMilwaukee story.

- Former Brewer Jose Capellan almost threw a no-hitter in the minors.

Just because Philly is full of ungrateful morons doesn't mean every other city needs to be. I'm all for showing our appreciation Geoff's 10 great years of service.

I wish I was going to be there Wednesday... but instead I will be taking an exam... or else I would totally skip that class.
