WELL DONE, BEN
CREDIT WHERE IT'S DUE
Brewer pitcher Ben Sheets pitched a gem last night.
I'm as hard as anyone I know on Ben Sheets, but I like to think I'm fair. That's why it's important to praise the Brewer ace when he does well, and wow did he do well last night.
Ben Pitched a complete game in the Brewers 4-1 win. He's perhaps the only pitcher on our staff capable of throwing 7 innings, much less 9. Congratulations to Ben, and to the Brewer defense that stepped up behind him. Good pitching can inspire good fielding. It's contagious.
And somebody woke up the bats too!
Boy it all seems to be going right for the Crew when Ben is dealing.
That's why I guess I'm so hard on the guy. There's so much potential, and he's so important to the overall health of our ball club.
As my pal Craig Koplien is so fond of saying, "When Ben is right, he's un-hitable."
Ben was right. Hope he stays that way.
