Philly is shutting down the Braves again and the Brewers are losing.

Locke was flat out horrendous tonight.

I honestly think it would be better if they missed the playoffs this season. It might force the front office's hand to do more.

By the way, both rallies started with a walk. The second rally with two walks. There were three hits then that scored all five runs, three of those coming from the walks. And all the pain was inflicted by the 8 and 9 hitters.

Horrendous is being kind. Disgraceful might be a better word.

And Axford comes in and gives one right back. Idiots.

This is what happens when you constantly go to the scrap heap for players. Decided to rely on guys like Locke. He's terrible. He was a flash in the pan first half of last year. They should know that. Then their only pick up was Axford. Guys done. They've done a nice job with guys like Volquez and Worley, but a lot of luck is involved there as well. If you constantly go to that well, you will eventually drown.

There is probably not much of a book on him right now but - damn - Lambo's swing sure does look pretty at times.

Failure to advance runner could be costly here.

Lead off double, then the MVP has lousy at bat and doesn't advance runner. This offense seems to be HR or bust right now...

I'd feel a bit better chasing one rather than two.

And both of them lost, Milwaukee for the 7th straight game. So there is that...
