One of the few benefits of my employment is that I'm generally free all day to monitor baseball-related activities. Trevor Hoffman just blew his fourth save of the season, and I'm jumping on Mikwaukee 8th inning disaster LaTroy Hawkins to possibly slide into the closer role. Best case scenario, I have my third closer. Worst case, Hawkins and Downs are basically the same awful pitcher at this point and I'm not losing anything.
In other Brewer news, Ryan Braun hasn't had an extra base hit in seven games. I don't think my team has so much as a double yet this week.
