I know it's a little unfair to blame a 1-0 loss on just one guy, but if there is any silver lining in the Brewers loss to the Cubs on Monday, it's the fact that maybe, just maybe, Ron Roenicke will finally remove Kameron Loe from the eighth inning set up spot. Even though the offense was non-existent with just four hits in the ballgame, Loe can easily be named as the scapegoat largely due to the struggles that he's had in his role recently. He did give up just the one run, but it was the game's only run, and the feeling of being confident when Loe enters the game with everything on the line has disappeared.
It shouldn't be a surprise that Roenicke has been stubborn about keeping Loe in the set up role, every Brewers manager in recent history has always had a few things they've been stubborn about. Ned Yost was a big fan of leaving pitchers in too long and batting Jason Kendall in the nine hole with little success. Ken Macha had a thing against letting batters steal bases and also had an indifference towards whether the team won or lost. For Ron Roenicke, his first point of stubbornness does appear to revolve around Loe.
Perhaps I'm making too much out of nothing, as the Brewers had to lose sometime after their triumphant series sweep against the Cardinals. It's a shame that Milwaukee wasn't able to continue their success against another rival in the Chicago Cubs, but hopefully the Brewers can at least split this series when all is said and done. It's going to be a tough couple of weeks with having to visit the Red Sox, Yankees, and hosting the Rays, so you'd like to see Milwaukee pick up some victories against Chicago while that team continues to struggle. It's sad to waste an effort like the one that Randy Wolf had on Monday (seven innings, six hits, zero runs, seven strikeouts), but the Brewers still remain in first place and as long as we're in the top spot or within striking distance I can't find reason to complain too much. For now.
Hungry like the Wolf
Easy headline can't apply
Because Kam Loe sucks
POTG: Randy Wolf
