El Super and Whatever is the Opposite of El Super
Captain Obvious has arrived with an El Super for Ryan Braun. In a week where he inked a big deal to remain a Brewer through 2020, Braun also batted .480 (12-for-25) with three home runs and nine RBI. During the week, Milwaukee posted a 4-2 record and improved to 11-10 on the season.
Tonight, I'm giving an Opposite of El Super to warning track power. In the first of three against the Reds, the Brewers hit six balls to the warning track and two more off the wall for doubles. Carlos Gomez was the chief offender hitting the ball to the warning track in the first, fifth, seventh and ninth innings. Braun was the only one who actually got the ball over the wall and his homer came in the bottom of the ninth with the Brewers trailing by six runs.
Some days you come up just short. And some days your team comes up four runs short. Sometimes it's on the same day.
Reds 9, Brewers 5
