When Your Weatherman Leaves Town...

You know you're in trouble if you stayed behind, and you know you're in good hands if you're heading in the same direction he is! Well that was the case for me on Thursday as WTMJ's Paul Joseph decided that he and his wife had enough of Wisconsin's weather as well and headed down to Phoenix along with all of us pasty kids.

Thankfully for the next week the outlook looks simply beautiful! With a low around 85, I think I'll be able to handle the change in climate.

Today I was able to check out the Brewers as they took on the KC Royals, or as my fiancee says,
"the most pathetic franchise in sports." While they look like they're heading in the right direction, today was not KC's day.

Prince looked incredible, he seems to be recovered from the quad pull, getting three huge hits, and legged out a double as well as went from first to third without any problem. He's hitting .800, and I think if he keeps that up for the rest of the year, it will be some kind of record. Capuano looked really good, especially in the second and third innings when he went three up three down with a couple of k's.

JJ Hardy and Rickie Weeks also looked pretty good today, no problems in the field, and while they didn't get any hits, they both hit the ball on the screws.

The one guy who was really impressive was Laynce Nix, he took one deep, but the most impressive thing was his three outstanding catches in the field. Laynce won't hit for the Crew, but they need his glove as a 4th outfielder.

Overall the team looked good, and getting the win by scoring two runs with two outs in the bottom of the 9th off old Brewer Wayne Franklin (remember how grateful we were when he was on the Brewers), who showed why he should have retired last year. Franklin's ERA is currently 19.29, which if you ask me, might just be about a run higher than even the Royals can accept.

By the way, the beer is very cold, and the weather is very hot.
