Coffey and donuts

With his two scoreless outings over the weekend in New York, Todd Coffey set a Brewers record.

He hasn’t allowed a run in his first 16 games as a Brewer, breaking the record set by former closer Francisco Cordero during the second half of the 2006 season. Coffey’s 16 streak includes nine appearances last September after the Brewers claimed him off waivers from the Reds, plus seven games this year.

He’s two innings away from setting another Brewers record for scoreless innings to begin a Brewers tenure. Here is that list:

Earl Stephenson:  18 2/3 innings (April 18-June 1, 1972)
Ray Newman:  18 innings (June 17, 1972 – April 29, 1973)
Coffey: 17 innings (Sept. 13, 2008 – present)

Let’s hope he can do that for your team tonight, or in the next series.
Considering some of the things that have gone a bit wrong for the Brewers, like Trevor Hoffman and Ryan Braun’s slow start, you are keeping the faith.
Just know that players get better, and people break out of slumps with hitting streaks most of the time.
The Brew Crew are far from being silent in 2009, and this series might be a good time to make a statement.
