1st inning, close to turning the channel again.

The Brewers smack the bucks around like a big bully smacking around the nerdy kid, and the Bucs' can't seem to stop it. Very discouraging.

Well, two HR's and up by four before there's even two outs. Safe to say this one is over. Four runs vs. Greinke isn't going to happen. I don't even think it happen against AAA pitching right now.

I agree, and yet at the end of the day the Bucs will be only 1 game behind the Brewers. Hard to believe.

I switched the tv to the indoor lacrosse championship on versus. Indoor lacrosse is awesome.

9 up, 9 down. Greinke might be on his way to a perfect game against this crew. :x :x :x

Looks like Correia has come back down to earth. This could be the beginning of the collapse of our pitching which means we are back to last year.

real ugly today. Our most reliable pitcher is terrible today and their guy is their guy. Boy is this shit depressing and I too hate the cocky brewers. This is staying on but I'll read most of the rest of this game. Who knows- maybe a no-no against us.

Yep, although I will keep the faith that Charlie Morton will turn it around (like he has so far) and have a good year.

Greinke so effortlessly destroyed our lineup the first go around. You can throw fastball after fastball to these guys and they can't do anything with them.

The only thing that impressed me so far was that throw by Cutch after he dropped the ball. He picked it back up and barely even set and made a strike to home plate.

They've got to get a little nasty, like a Candy Man or Bruce Kison. Braun doesn't get another hit, no matter what it takes. This is big boy baseball, you need a little mean streak. They don't seem to have it.

Hard to be mean to a team that 100% owns you. It'll just make you look like an idiot.

As bad as the offense has been, can't blame Neil Walker. Great at-bat to ruin the no-no and shutout.

Indeed, that was an excellent at bat. Probably the only time all night Greinke will be challenged like that.

Back in it. Lets see some of that bullpen we had the first month.

Okay, this is all on Clint Hurdle. There is no way Chris Resop should be in a game that is still in doubt either way. The guy has done nothing been get hammered his past nine appearances.

Sorry, Clint. YOU blew this one.

And suddenly what had become a competitive game . . . looks out of reach again. Thank you, Chris Resop.

Come on! After 5 run offensive inning, as a pitcher, you absolutely cannot give up more runs! This bullpen is officially pissing me off.
