About: BrewTownBoozer

I am crazy about the Brewers, so I started this blog as a way to get some of my thoughts on the record. I hope people enjoy the effort I take in sharing my opinions, that sometimes even come with facts. I hope to be the good luck charm that drives the Brew Crew to a division title in 2011.

A Simple Kind of Fan. The First Hitless Yuni Watch – 8.31.11

Ouch.  Yuni took the collar this week with an 0 x 19 performance.  You have to at least admire his consistency.  For the week he also managed to not walk, not score a run, or drive in an RBI.  His roller coaster season continues to... read more »
