Brewers 5, Royals 2

The next time the Brewers take the field, it will count in the standings. I've been waiting a long six months to be able to say that again, haven't you? The Crew end their spring season today with a 5-2 victory over the Royals today at Miller Park. It was an impressive Spring for the Brewers, who now head into the 2008 season with their highest expectations in years. Remember five years ago when the Brewers were starting to turn things around, and we all said, "Dude, the Brewers will be good in like 2008 or 2009, just wait." Well we waited, and that time is here. And I, for one, couldn't be more ready to go along for the ride.

As for today's contest, Dave Bush went 6 innings given up 2 runs, but it was Brian Shouse that was the pitcher of record. Tony Gwynn Jr. had two hits and plated two runs. Gabe Gross and Craig Counsell also chipped in an RBI each.

As I write this, we're just 38 hours away from Opening Day! (which is another day you should be taking off work from, by the way)

Box Score.

TBC's Player of the Game: Tony Gwynn Jr.

A couple of other things that I thought were noteworthy. According to, Mark Attanasio and the Crew have made long-term offers to Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder. Everyone assumes they will be Yankees in three years, so we need to lock them up while we can.

Also, thought this was cool, the Dodgers and Red Sox played in front of more than 100,000 people in the same arena where Jack Bauer and Sherry Palmer nearly died in season two of 24!

And, is anyone else aware that the MLS regular season started today?
