I'll give one guess at the party affiliation of the dude complaining the eclipse will not be seen by enough black people.

They are a parody of themselves.

8/20/2017 03:30:00 AM

(8/20/2017 12:30:00 AM) - Al

One must admit, they are a bunch of negative nellies.

Why do those on the left fail to see that the public wonders why they refuse to admit their "peaceful protests" are full of violence.

When only Trump points out both sides, many see this as the fact Trump is right, and the others seem to be hiding something. 

8/19/2017 11:59:00 PM

(8/19/2017 11:00:00 PM) - Al

Peaceful protesters do not wear masks, or call for the death of law enforcement.

When they look like a thug and act like a thug...the odds are outstanding they are thugs.

8/19/2017 11:00:00 PM

(8/19/2017 10:54:00 PM) - Al

Well, to be fair, they don't bother keeping track of balls and strikes anymore, so they have plenty of time on their hands.

8/19/2017 10:54:00 PM

(8/19/2017 10:29:00 PM) - Al

Probably see an Anderson for Woodruff roster swap after the game, as Brandon won't be needed for a while due to the days off.

8/19/2017 10:29:00 PM

(8/19/2017 09:24:00 PM) - Al

Dems on the fence, not sure how to proceed.

Remember, if you will, Obama's first year in office, if you said you disagreed with his policy, you were a racist and the worst person in the world.

Funny how that works. Consistency is not their strong suit.

8/19/2017 09:24:00 PM

(8/19/2017 06:00:00 PM) - Al

Boston thugs and criminals go out of their way to make Trump's remarks last week are 100% accurate.

The old media won't be as outraged or loud...but the public will see right through it.

8/19/2017 06:00:00 PM

(8/19/2017 04:00:00 PM) - Al

This was discussed months ago.

When they make fun of Trump, the public realizes they are really making fun of them.

8/19/2017 04:00:00 PM

(8/19/2017 03:00:00 PM) - Al

Facts? Don't be silly.

Trump won awards for his diversity...until he became a Republican. Just a coincidence, I'm sure.

8/19/2017 03:00:00 PM

(8/19/2017 02:42:00 PM) - Al

They do not understand...if everyone is a racist, then no one is a racist.

Just like when they called McCain and Romney Hitler. They never learn.

8/19/2017 02:42:00 PM

(8/19/2017 02:16:00 PM) - Al

Granderson ends up with the Dodgers. They must have offered a better PTBNL or to cover more of his salary.

8/19/2017 02:16:00 PM

(8/19/2017 02:15:00 PM) - Al

Brewers sign speedster OF, likely for SEP and possible postseason PR duties.

Berry is a Charles Emerson Winchester of baseball...he does one thing, and he does it very well. His major league numbers include 27 stolen bases versus only one caught stealing...a mind boggling 96% success rate, plus 5 out of 5 in the postseason.

His minor league stats include 387 steals at an 80% rate. Since 2010, he has 208 SB's with an 83% positive outcome.

If you are thinking the Brewers had someone like this before, you are right, they signed minor league veteran Mel Stocker to steal and run in 2007-8.

8/19/2017 02:15:00 PM

(8/19/2017 04:30:00 AM) - Al

They don't just despise the Constitution, but their arguments are so stupid, they only appeal to the Marxist, goofball left.

8/19/2017 04:30:00 AM

(8/18/2017 10:30:00 PM) - Al

Wait, I was told Trump was 100% incorrect!

8/18/2017 10:30:00 PM

(8/18/2017 09:00:00 PM) - Al

Apparently, being a highly paid professional does not include being able to count to 4. I'd suggest replacing them with untrained chimpanzees, but I wouldn't want to offend untrained primates.

Help me Rhonda. Oof. 

8/18/2017 09:00:00 PM

(8/18/2017 07:38:00 PM) - Al

It's almost as if criminals don't really care what property of others they vandalize.

Told ya so.

8/18/2017 07:38:00 PM

(8/18/2017 07:36:00 PM) - Al

The old media misjudges the public often.

The Dems misjudge the public often.

But, I repeat myself.

8/18/2017 07:36:00 PM

(8/18/2017 07:26:00 PM) - Al

I say it all the time, but it remains true...whenever you see a huge drop off in production from one year to the next, the cause is almost always injury.

And still, they continue to "fight through it."

8/18/2017 07:26:00 PM

(8/18/2017 05:58:00 PM) - Al

BUMP due to edit.

Reports have Corbin Burnes on his way to AAA Colorado Springs. Has dominated at high A and AA. Will not be added to the 40 unless he's added to the 25 man roster, as he was just drafted last year.

EDIT: The JS is reporting those "reports" were false. 

8/18/2017 05:58:00 PM

(8/18/2017 03:22:00 PM) - Al

Vogt activated, Susac to disabled list.

Would not be surprised to see Susac moved to the 60 day or outrighted to make room for an addition to the 40 man in SEP. Seems like a capable backup, but health concerns and getting older have minimized his ceiling.

8/18/2017 03:22:00 PM

(8/18/2017 01:49:00 PM) - Al

The irony here is, this is a surprise to many people.

If you have ever noticed, unless the dictator had secret police which kidnapped people in the night never to be heard from again, countries cherish their history.

You'll note, this is why one party is so intent on erasing and rewriting theirs. I'm glad they aren't on my side.

8/18/2017 01:49:00 PM

(8/18/2017 01:30:00 PM) - Al

I realize this is on the team site, so positivity is a prerequisite, but the Crew is far more likely to have a 2-7 road trip than a 7-2 one.

Never mind the Rockies have the biggest home field advantage in sports and the Dodgers are the best team since the 90something Mariners, traveling west is always difficult due to time zones and the like.

8/18/2017 01:30:00 PM

(8/18/2017 01:06:00 PM) - Al

Lefty says free speech only applies to things he agrees with.

And yes, he is too shortsighted to understand what could possibly be wrong with that. Whenever their first idea is to ignore the Constitution, they have a bad idea.

8/18/2017 01:06:00 PM

(8/18/2017 12:56:00 PM) - Al

Just got home from lunch with the Rambling family, as they are off to the inlaw's vacation compound in NW WI for a long weekend. I decided to take a cheat day since I made it back down to my previous low.

For those of you that don't know, cheat day is just about the greatest day ever. You just eat know, like 95% of people do every single day of their lives.

The only way today could be any better was if Hillary was not president...never mind.

8/18/2017 12:56:00 PM

(8/18/2017 11:00:00 AM) - Al

The truth is, if she was a Republican, this would be serious.

8/18/2017 11:00:00 AM

(8/18/2017 10:00:00 AM) - Al

Well, to be fair, he's right.

8/18/2017 10:00:00 AM

(8/18/2017 09:00:00 AM) - Al

The facts are painful.

Luckily, they are ignored, because shut up.

8/18/2017 09:00:00 AM

(8/18/2017 06:00:00 AM) - Al

The Dems fought the Civil Rights Act every second because they needed votes from the South.

Now that Southerners have abandoned the party, they are incredibly quick to forget this nugget of fact. No group is more mocked and despised now...because they vote Republican. As Toby Keith has said often, he never left the Dems, the Dems left him.

They are now just as centered on the pro abortion, illegal immigration, and LGBGT groups. Don't think for a second they won't be left behind as well.

8/18/2017 06:00:00 AM

(8/18/2017 03:00:00 AM) - Al

Consistency is not a hallmark of the left.

When you change your mind with the breeze, you learn to be rather open minded about things.

8/18/2017 03:00:00 AM

(8/18/2017 01:30:00 AM) - Al

I told you so.

(8/17/2017 10:30:00 PM) - Al

I'm so old, I remember when something like this would be roundly condemned by both sides immediately.

That sound you hear from the left? Hypocrisy.

Because shut up.

8/17/2017 10:30:00 PM

(8/17/2017 09:41:00 PM) - Al

Word is the Brewers continue to try and work out a Granderson swap.

8/17/2017 09:41:00 PM

(8/17/2017 08:30:00 PM) - Al

Scott Adams is doing some really, really good work.

His description of mass hysteria is near perfect. The complete realization that folks had/are having that they had completely misread the situation is obvious to most of us, who were surprised, but looked at the facts, and the exit polls, and understood what had happened. Others...did not.

They began blaming racism (my personal favorite, as the ignorance that a white man defeating the same white woman a black man had defeated was racist remains the epitome of stupidity), every other ism under the sun, and most of all, started saying how stupid everyone was other than themselves.

8/17/2017 08:30:00 PM

(8/17/2017 02:10:00 PM) - Al

Heyman says the Mets are trying hard to unload their remaining veterans, including Granderson, and possibly Jerry Blevins.

Both would fit with the Crew's needs.

8/17/2017 02:10:00 PM

(8/17/2017 01:31:00 PM) - Al

Woodruff pitches Saturday, then Brewers won't need a 5th starter again until Sept. 2. Could option him, bring him back when rosters expand.--Adam,

Always a way to maximize your roster. The irony is, the casuals never understand it, nor have any desire to. Susac will be optioned when Vogt returns (and may well be outrighted when Bandy is healthy).

8/17/2017 01:31:00 PM

(8/17/2017 01:11:00 PM) - Al

An army marches on its stomach.--Napoleon

ISIS is being starved out. Amazingly, what's defeating them was not folk songs or holding hands. Good old fashioned military might.

8/17/2017 01:11:00 PM

If any of you are looking for a healthy summer snack, and I'm sure many of you have a whole bunch of zucchini either from your garden or from a friend that has a garden; slice them thin, put on any spices you enjoy (I like salt/pepper/garlic/parm cheese).

400 degrees, 15-30 minutes, depending on if you like them a bit moist like me, or really crunchy and dry, like a real potato chip.

And if you think you don't like zucchini, they basically have no flavor, especially if you bale them half an hour. They just take on the flavor of the add ons.

8/17/2017 11:30:00 AM

The Rambling wife is going back to college online. She started last night.

1. I always wanted to say I am married to a college woman.

2. I did not expect her to be 42, however.

8/17/2017 09:30:00 AM

(8/17/2017 06:30:00 AM) - Al


Peaceful protests are rarely peaceful.

8/17/2017 06:30:00 AM

(8/17/2017 03:00:00 AM) - Al

No, I do not know why we call the old media fake news.

8/17/2017 03:00:00 AM

Whatever strikes me as interesting, and serious Milwaukee Brewers thoughts. If you are a believer in respecting OBP, throwing strikes, and keeping the ball in the park, you may have found the place you've been searching for. I believe in low taxes, small government, and am not afraid to be labeled patriotic. If you are interested in sausage race results, walk up music, or professional wrestling, you may wish to click elsewhere.

The Ramblings' manifesto can be found here.

I'm happy to pay taxes to help the helpless. I don't like paying taxes to help the clueless. Look at the Occupy movement...I'm forced to pay taxes to help those whose plight I delight in.--Dennis Miller

If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, and your life will be brief.--President Trump

Never have lives less lived been more chronicled.--Dennis Miller

I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.--Mad Dog Mattis

I have never understood why it is "greed" to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money.--Thomas Sowell
