The View From Wisconsin

Black Wednesday

So I wake up, turn on the 'puter, do a few clicky-linkys and find out that the Brewers have, in essence, thrown in the towel for 2009.

Bill Castro fired as pitching coach; J.J. Hardy sent down to Nashville; Bill Hall sent down "for assignment" (IOW, we're about to give him his unconditional release).

A face palm isn't adequate to describe these moves. This is close to "bang your head against the wall" level.

Good Lord, I do NOT want to have to wait 26 years before this team goes back to the post-season again.
