Many are calling for Brewer manager Ken Macha to be fired since the Brewers are in a big slump and have the worst home record in the majors. I've never been the biggest Macha fan...I think mainly because he's so bland and uninspiring when you listen to his daily quotes. Could a change help the Brewers at this point? Maybe...but there is no guarantee...just like there is no guarantee that this team won't reel off six or seven in a row starting today. In a 162 game season there are ebbs and flows. Now I'm not saying the Brewers are not a flawed team....they certainly are. The bullpen has been a mess...the starters can't go deep in games...and the offense with the exception of Casey McGehee has been hit or miss. How patient will Doug Melvin and Mark Attanasio be? If the team doesnt put a few wins on the board on this road trip it wouldnt be surprising if they make the move and have Willie Randolph run the team the rest of this season. A change of managers doesnt mean the team will play better...it mostly appeases the fans who believe it will.
Trevon Hughes worked out for the Bucks yesterday. Milwaukee has 3 picks in the upcoming draft and a backup point guard maybe a good choice for one of those second rounders.
It's Wausau East at Wausau West in high school baseball action today. I'll have the game live on Foxsports1390 WRIG at 4:15
It's Gregg Allman and his band tonight at the Grand Theater in Wausau. It's a 7:30 show and I believe you'll be able to get tickets at the door. Don't miss this chance to see a legendary Rock & Roller ply his craft tonight! The more support shows like this get....the more they will bring.
Songs of the Day (from My I-pod)
Come & Go Blues- Allman Brothers Band (1973) originally recorded on the Lp "Brothers & Sisters", the first record after the death of his brother Duane...Gregg also recorded this on his 1977 solo Lp "Playin Up A Storm" Here is a solo acoustic version from a few years ago.
Midnight Rider-Gregg Allman (1972) another tune originally done by the Brothers but redone by Allman himself with horns on his first solo Lp "Laid Back". It's become a concert staple.
