Thats the word Prince Fielder used to describe the Brewer offensive woes. The Brewers had a day off in Southern California yesterday to regroup from their pathetic offensive output of the past few days. Except for the 17 runs they scored against Pittsburgh last Monday the team has only scored one-and-a-half runs a game in their previous nine. They have dropped 8-of-10 and have fallen seven games behind first place St. Louis in the Central. Chris Narveson goes tonight against the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine.
A little bragging....Northland Lutheran/Wisconsin Valley Lutheran won their first baseball game of the season yesterday beating Auburndale 9-3. My son Cory pitched a complete game and drove in 3 with a bases loaded 2 out double. Congrats to the boys on the first one...let's get a few more.
Wausau Newman pounded out 17 hits including grand slams from Brad Knoblock and Luke Prososki in a 22-7 pounding of Edgar yesterday...and Port Edwards upset Rosholt (ranked #1) 17-16 after being down 9 runs.
You can hear doubleheader baseball action on Foxsports1390 WRIG today (weather permitting)...first up DC Everest at Marshfield at 4:15...I'll then have the call of Stevens Point at Wausau East to follow.
Songs Of The Day (from My-Ipod)
The First Cut Is The Deepest-Many Artists...written and re-corded by Cat Stevens in 1967 it was also a hit for Rod Stewart in 1977 and Sheryl Crow in 2003. Here is a 1973 concert video of Linda Ronstadt doing it.
The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face-Robert Flack (1969/1972) this tune has an interesting history. Written by folk-singer Ewan McColl for his soon-to-be-wife Peggy Seeger back in 1957 it was recorded by many different artists including Elvis. McColl reportedly hated all of them. I wonder if he liked the royalty checks? Flack recorded it on her first Lp in 1969 but it wasnt until Clint Eastwood used it in the 1971 movie 'Play Misty For Me" that Columbia released it to radio and it became a hit.
