Easter Sunday inspiration

Somebody is providing the Brewers with some clubhouse inspiration this morning, looping video of the team’s famous 1987 Easter Sunday win over the Rangers at old County Stadium. Rob Deer and (current Brewers hitting coach) Dale Sveum hit back-to-back home runs to win that game and extend the team’s season-opening winning streak to 12.

Prince Fielder and Craig Counsell were hooting and hollering while my friend Josh Vernier of WSSP was trying to record a radio interview earlier this morning, and Kameron Loe was enjoying Bob Uecker’s call when I stopped in the clubhouse a moment ago.

Fans voted Sveum’s walk-off homer the second-best moment in Brewers history last season, when the club celebrated its 40th anniversary in Milwaukee. Here’s a Brewers.com story on that game from 2007, written by blast-from-the-past Kelvin Ang.

The Brewers play again today, and second baseman Rickie Weeks is back in the lineup after missing Saturday’s game with a sprained left pinkie finger. Outfielder Brandon Boggs, called-up from Triple-A Nashville on Thursday, gets his first Brewers start.

I heard Matt Reed talking about evhterying and anything on the radio other than what the county commissioners were voting on. Then his paper also failed to cover the real story. And according to Reed, it was the readers fault and the radio listeners fault that he didn’t do his job. Yup, and when I was a pilot, it was that darned fat guy in row 19 that made me do a lousy landing ! “Lincoln 64″

I have been playing this game for a few months now and have come up with these issues: The hitting is really really hard for someone who is not an excellent gamer. I have changed the gameplay difficulty sliders all around and they have done absolutely nothing. How realistic is someone hitting 15 foul balls in a row? I am constantly hitting fly outs behind home plate to the catcher. I have only been able to to put the ball in play 3 times while using the power swing. Every time I use it( I try a lot), I hit a foul ball. I have tried soo many different timings on the swing and the results are almost always the same. I know they are trying to be realistic, but from my experience, this is the WORST hitting for a baseball game EVER. Maybe it is me, but I have read a lot of people having the same problems. 95% of the articles I find, are of people trying to figure out how to hit on this game. I tried messing around for about 20 games with having the fielding errors and throwing errors of the cpu really high. The result in my 20 games of having it at 100%, 95%, and 90% are the same, the cpu has yet to make an error. Now that doesn’t seem right and I’ve slid it the other way and the same thing happens, no errors. What is the point of difficulty sliders if they do not work. I will say that the baserunning and field running sliders do work ok and the same with throwing strength. That is pretty much it. The only good thing on this game is the pitching. The way you pitch in this game is pretty good. For that reason this game gets 2 stars. I would give this game negative stars for the hitting and slider difficulty option. Overall, if you want a baseball game for xbox, your stuck with 2k sports. If you also have a ps3, buy the show. It is way better and alot more fun.

Awesome info. Since myson plays baseball, I’mbrown as a berry this year,even using surncseen faithfully.Thank you for all of thehard work you put into thispost in order to educate yourreaders. This one is very,very grateful : ) !!xx Suzanne
