Hot! Sunny Side Up

It ‘s all about eggs and rabbits today, bad pastel colors, big ears and fluffy bunny feet. So what does any of this Hallmark nonsense have to do with baseball you ask? Absolutely nothing, unless you’re a Milwaukee Brewer fan, which means Easter Sunday brings back fond memories of Dale Sveum’s heroic home run way back on April 19th, 1987, a walk-off shot in the bottom of the ninth at County Stadium that gave the Brewers their 12th win in a row, a 6-4 win over the Texas Rangers. To some Brewer fans, that stands as the most memorable game in the team’s less than memorable games played history.

Sveum is now the skipper of the hapless Chicago Cubs, off to 0-2 start and well on their way to battling for the basement title in the NL Comedy Cnetral. The Blew-Ha’s, on the other hand, bounced back from an embarrassing home opener to level their record at 1-1 behind the bat of Corey All-Amish Hart and a stellar pitching performance from their real ace, Zach Greinke.

Today they’re slight dogs against the Red Birds in the rubber game of the three game series at $8 Miller Park. Randy Wolf takes to the mound for what should be an entertaining afteronon, as thousands of fans will undoubtedly keep their eyes on Phil Mickelson and his attempt to win a fourth green jacket at the Masters,,,a tradition unlike any other.

It’s the pitching that is supposed to carry this team in 2012, but with two blowouts on the books already we have yet to see the Ax Man make an appearance out of the bull pen. Perhaps today will mark his first appearance, along ewwith his string of 43 straight regular season saves.

Nothing is ever easy against St. Loses it seems, and today won’t be any different. However, I’ll say the bunny of Easter past brings his basket of colored eggs to $8 Miller Park and the Screw-Ha’s walk away winners, 5-4.

Meanwhile, down in Chicago, Dale sveum is probably wondering how he wound up in the Cub’s dugout 25 years later after that memeorable Easter Sunday at County Stadium. And he’s probably already trying to figure out how in the world he’s gonna get out of there.

And For What

  1. Am I rating the Brewers or the take? If I’m rating the take, I give it 5 stars. F the Sewers.
