The Brewers really took one (or twelve) to the chin last night. I’m not sure why everyone is/was so keen on Dave Bush; I’ve never seen him as anything other than mediocre. His fastball is slow, he works slowly, and he regularly gets roughed up for a bunch of runs (particularly early). Good ol’ Ned is high on the kid, though, so that means he’ll be pitching (and losing) for the rest of the season. Early in the game things looked good. It was in the fifth that the Reds really broke the door open and streamed through. Say lah vee.
In the ‘April Showers Bring May Flowers’ equation, we’re firmly in the ‘showers’ part. Rain two days ago, rain yesterday, rain today, thunderstorms tomorrow. The grass is starting to turn from brown to green, which is heartening and I was able to jog to the gym yesterday. I just gotta wait out the next week; then it’s off to California from the 20th to the 26th, followed by a Las Vegas vacation.
I decided to start writing about the housing crash and my opinions on it, but I haven’t posted anything yet because I’m unsure where to start and because, when dealing with a contentious topic such as this, I really hem and haw when discussing it. I need to make sure I present my views correctly. I hope those posts will be more thought out and edited than the dreck I currently serve to you, my adoring friends.
