In the News (5/7)

Today's Game: Marlins 6, Brewers 2
Record: 16-17, fourth
Games Behind Cubs: 2.5

And the Brewers are under .500, but hey, at least they scored... And the Cardinals and Cubs lost too...

- A Marlin rookie making his sixth career start made the Brewers look foolish.

- Bill Hall tries to pull everything and it shows. He went 0-4 tonight and struck out three times. He's now batting .210 on the season. He was ninth in MLB in strikeouts before tonight, but is probably in the top five now.

- Bush was not good in his return to the rotation. He gave up six runs in six innings.

- The Brewers win when Fielder hits. I'd point out how foolish that is, but the numbers are actually pretty striking.

- Jim Powell checks in with some audio. And a Corey Hart interview HERE.

- BrewersNation takes a shot at predicting the 2011 Brewers' roster.

- The Brew Town Beat points out that no starter besides Ben Sheets has won a game since April 5. I know it hasn't always been the starters fault, but that is just pathetic...

- Anthony Witrado of the Journal-Sentinel answers fans' questions.

- The Bucky Channel takes a look at Telly Hughes, the part-time Brewers Live personality.

- Cole Gillespie was the Sports Bubbler Brewers' prospect of the week.

- So, this Nate McLouth guy on the Pirates is on pace for something like a 150 RBI, 150 run, 50 home run season. Should we start paying attention? In all seriousness, McLouth appears to be a legit player (though not THAT good). He's likely won a starting job for some time now.

The Marlins are actually a decent team this year, but the Brewers should be playing better than this. Yes, it's only May, and yes, we are only 2.5 back.

The Marlins ARE a good team. But is Houston? I don't think so. Not to mention being bent over in their own park by both of these teams.

It's going to get worse before it will get any better. We have the Cards and the Dodgers...oh and Boston next.

Simmons' is drafting up his gameplan right now as I type this.
