SparkPeople Milwaukee Brewers Team Messageboard Go Brewers Go SparkPeople Milwaukee Brewers Team Messageboard Brewers Fan from Manty town Hey everyone. I found this team and just had to be a part of it. I must admit that I have only recently become a Brewers fan. Once I retired, I thought I would start watching baseball again. Since I'm from Wisconsin, the Brewers were a natural choice. I wish they were doing better but I tune in to watch them almost every night. Looking forward to being in this group. Go Brew Crew. Sat, 20 Jun 2015 15:12:55 EST Tosha Good morning and have a outstanding day. Mon, 13 Oct 2014 10:02:50 EST Slow Start The Crew is starting the season out slow. Hopefully Corey Hart's bat will stay hot! What is everyone's predictions for the season?? GO BREWERS!!! Tue, 10 Apr 2012 06:26:51 EST 2012, It's On! Attended Brewer Fest yesterday. Just the thing to get the enthusiasm going for the start of the 2012 season. Loved the games and interaction among the players - new and old. I am very glad to see Craig Counsell staying with the team in the front office. Here's to a great 2012 season!!! <em>300</em> Mon, 30 Jan 2012 13:36:42 EST Holidays I wanted to wish the team a Merry Christmas! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday, however you celebrate. I was sorry to hear about Braun, and hope that he is able to clear himself of the charges he is facing. I will also miss Casey M., but I think we got a good trade. Sorry I haven't been here posting, but hope that I can check in more regular! Mon, 26 Dec 2011 07:56:08 EST On a roll The Crew is on a roll. Let's hope they can continue their good hitting and pitching on the road trip! Go Brewers! Thu, 4 Aug 2011 12:27:15 EST What's up? Long time Brewers fan here. <BR> <BR> Joined Sparkpeople a couple of months ago due to too many tailgates at Miller Park. <BR> <BR> Thu, 7 Jul 2011 14:47:36 EST Hello! Hey everybody. <BR> Can I just say that I love that I found this team? Amazing. <BR> So obviously....I love the Brewers. Boyyyy do I love them. <BR> I go to college in Minnesota, so unfortunately I'm stuck there for a few months of the season with no way to watch games. Definitely didn't enjoy that. <BR> <BR> Hooray for fellow weight-losing Brewer fans :) Fri, 27 May 2011 01:31:17 EST Die hard Brewers fans in Crestview, FL... Hello everyone! I am new to SparkPeople, but am making great strides in my weight loss. We recently went to Atlanta and watched the Brewers kick some Brave butt. Mon, 30 Aug 2010 21:03:58 EST WE NEED TO GET OUT OF THIS SLUMP!!! What is happening to the Crew????? We better start winning some games!!! <BR> <BR> I thought they might pull off a win against the Twins yesterday, but couldn't get it done. There were some great plays, like Hart's catch late in the game! GO BREWERS!!! Sun, 23 May 2010 08:51:13 EST Gerut Hits for the Cycle!!!!!! Gerut gets it: Outfielder hits for cycle <BR> Jody Gerut becomes the sixth Brewer to complete the cycle <BR> <BR> Jody Gerut picked up a single, triple and homer during the first five innings vs. the D-backs, before completing the cycle with a double in the ninth as the Brewers won 17-3 on Saturday. <BR> <BR> Gerut became the sixth Brewers player, and the first since Chad Moeller in 2004, to hit for the cycle with his ninth-inning double on Saturday night. <BR> Mon, 10 May 2010 06:38:26 EST Wishes for a Speedy Recovery! I got this in an email from the Brewers, and hope that Bob mends quickly! I love hearing him announcing the games! <BR> <BR> Milwaukee Brewers radio broadcaster Bob Uecker underwent successful heart surgery today at Milwaukee's Froedtert Hospital. The six-hour surgery was performed by Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin Cardiothoracic Surgeon Alfred C. Nicolosi, MD. <BR> <BR> It is expected that Uecker will remain hospitalized at Froedtert for approximately five to seven days, wit... Sat, 1 May 2010 06:31:36 EST First Series Is Ours!!! <em>244</em> The Crew did it! The first series is ours! I loved hearing "Hell's Bells" again for the first time this season! <em>250</em> Wed, 7 Apr 2010 19:19:52 EST Well at least.... we can be thankful that we aren't Cubs fans today! <BR> <BR> Mon, 5 Apr 2010 20:54:55 EST Can't wait til Monday!! The boys are back in town tonite! Yay!! Only 3 days til the home opener.... anyone going to the game? Fri, 2 Apr 2010 22:16:46 EST Brewers License Plates I saw that they are about to issue (or maybe they already have) Milwaukee Brewers license plates. You can order them just like the current Packer ones. Is anyone planning to get them? I am seriously considering it. Tue, 30 Mar 2010 14:28:48 EST newbie! hey im Sarah, new to the group. im so glad there was a brewer group on here! i love the crew and cant wait to look great @ miller park. GO BREW CREW Sat, 20 Mar 2010 22:41:19 EST Bycotting Miller Park I can't trust myself at Miller Park this year. The smell of the yummy candy coated nuts and hot dogs may just do me in... i guess i will be watching FSN from my treadmill. ((sigh)) Wed, 3 Mar 2010 21:00:17 EST 2010 Team Changes! Thought it would be great to keep up with the changes in the Brewer's Team for 2010! Post any new players or changes in the team here, so we can all stay up to date on our Crew! <BR> <BR> Doug Davis, who pitched for the Brewers from 2003-06, has officially agreed to terms to come back to the club on a one-year deal with an option for 2011. <BR> <BR> I liked Doug when he was with the Brewers before, glad to have him back! <em>345</em> Sat, 23 Jan 2010 08:00:40 EST Hey All! I'm a mother of 4 ages ranging from 16-19. Being avid Brewer fans that live 5 hours away from Miller park, my husband, kids and I attend a couple of games every year. I look forward to being a team member! Tue, 19 Jan 2010 12:20:38 EST Hi All Hi, my name is Jeff. I am 47 and a father of 2 girls ages 4 & 1(I know, that's young for my age). If I want to be around when they get married and have kids, I need to something about my weight, and I need to do it now. For 12 and a half years I've been in a very sedentary job. I currently weigh 267 lbs and am looking at 190 lbs as my goal weight. My goal date is August 8th, my mom's birthday. She died a year ago the day after Thanksgiving. She died of heart failure and diabetes. She never ha... Sat, 2 Jan 2010 22:48:01 EST Hi All Hi, my name is Jeff. I am 47 and a father of 2 girls ages 4 & 1(I know, that's young for my age).

I keep hearing that Hardy probably won't be back. Too bad he went into such a slump. <BR> Just thought I would start a thread where we could talk about and post any changes that are, and will be going on with the team. <BR> Fri, 18 Sep 2009 06:03:09 EST Time to give up for this year? I am getting very disappointed watching night after night (and day) and seeing the team lose. The bats are not producing hits, but the pitchers are giving them away. <BR> <BR> What do you think the team needs to do in order to get to the playoffs -- or do you think it's too late? Wed, 19 Aug 2009 13:39:52 EST Brewer Fan in Florida My first ball game was Brewers vs Detroit in Detroit in the year the Brewers went to the world series. Make no mistake, I'm pulling for the Tampa Bay Rays, but when we go to Wi, the old country, we try to get to Miller Park if the team is in town (usually June). All time favorite player is Robin Yount. Tue, 4 Aug 2009 23:16:41 EST The Crew is getting some help! <BR> The Milwaukee Brewers acquired second baseman Felipe Lopez from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for minor-league outfielder Cole Gillespie and RHP Roque Mercedes. Lopez, 29, hit .305 with six home runs, 25 RBIs and six stolen bases in 84 games with Arizona this season. He was second in the National League with a .372 on-base percentage from the top spot in the batting order. Lopez owns a career batting average of .266 with 77 HR, 359 RBI and 115 stolen bases in 957 games during nin... Mon, 20 Jul 2009 06:23:59 EST ALL STAR GAME Anyone excited about the all star game? I was happy that Braun and Fielder are both going to be there! I voted for all the Crew. Too bad Weeks won't be there with them, he was having such a good start this season. Hope he can come back strong next year! Sun, 12 Jul 2009 05:27:11 EST Most Helpful Tool We have all struggled in one way or another to lose some weight, to become healthier. What is the one thing that has been the most help for you so far? <BR> <BR> For me, I guess it would have to be tracking my calories. I never realized how many calories I was actually getting in a day! Once I joined Spark, and used the nurtition info, I had a huge wake up call! Tue, 9 Jun 2009 12:14:02 EST Did you get lost? Where are all the Brewer Fans??? Is anyone out there???? The Crew is having a good year, come post and give your thoughts on the players and games. Fri, 5 Jun 2009 06:47:37 EST Corey's new look So, how does everyone like Corey with dark hair??? I had to look twice when I first saw his new look. Still not too sure if I like it. It is quite a change from being blonde! Sun, 26 Apr 2009 08:22:46 EST Whos your favorite Brewer?! LEts hear it folks! Whos your favorite Brewer and why?! <BR> Mine is Coreyyyyyyy Hart! <BR> I think hes a talented young player and hes a great outfielder and super fast runner, just gotta hit a few more balls there Corey!! <BR> <BR> <em>67</em> Thu, 23 Apr 2009 17:48:57 EST HELLO Fellow Brewer fans! Hi there all, <BR> Names Mary, I live in Elkhorn and I've been a member of the site for 2 days now, and I honestly love it! Its so easy to use and a great tool for my weight lose journey! <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> Thu, 23 Apr 2009 17:44:05 EST Post Season news.... It was great to hear that CC won the Clutch player of the year award! I keep hoping the Brewers will find enough money to keep him next year! I've been hearing that Sheets won't be back for the Brewers next year. It will be exciting to see who the new manager will be. <BR> I have been watching a little of the world series. I hope the Rays beat the pants off Philly! Fri, 24 Oct 2008 06:23:30 EST End of the 2008 Season! Well, it had to happen, the season is over! It was great to see the Brewers make it to post-season this year. Next year will be even better! <BR> I have been trying to think of something we can work on, till next season. I was wondering if everyone would like to set a specific goal, and track/report our progress here? Let me know what you all think, and if you would like to join me. Each person could set their own goals, and we could help to support and encourage each other along the way.
