Still tied

1-1 heading into the eighth. Edwin Encarnacion popped out to center field, and Paul Bako and Aaron Harang struck out to end the seventh inning.

It's very disappointing that Dusty did not PH for Cory with Hopper in the 8th versus LH Stetter to lead off the inning!

It's obvious that this team is NOT going to hit. Period. Waiting around for this team to "break out" is foolish and ignorant on Dusty's part.

Our hitters simply look overmatched. Today we faced the Brewers #7 pitcher (Sheets injured, Capuano injured) and yet we make him look like a Cy Young candidate. Edwin's home run on a fat fastball is the only reason the game is tied.

The offense is a huge problem. Dunn, our slugger, looks baffled. Griffey is in his twilight years yet being asked to bat in the heart of the order. Phillips may have had a career year last season. Edwin only hits fastballs over the plate. Our best hitter is now on the bench (Hatteberg). I could go on and on. Blow it up that's all I can say. I fully expect them to lose another close one today.

Not tied with EE playing. When are they going to realize that he is too much of a liability to put on the field.
