I just got done watching the Brewers lose to the Reds by a score of 5-4. Quick correction, I just got done watching TREVOR HOFFMAN lose to the Reds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's time to get rid of him or at the very least bench him. He has now blown 5 saves and he isn't even close to being the old Hoffman. Get rid of him now!
Manny Parra pitched well, 4 innings with only 1 run scored. Then Marco Estrada making his Brewers debut goes 4 innings with only 1 run scored and he was cruising having only thrown 55 pitches. Estrada was fooling all of the Reds hitters (except for Joey Votto who hit a monster HR) and then Macha brought in Hoffman in the 9th. Hoffman gave up a single, HR, double, walk and a double. The Reds are extremely hot right now but there is no excuse for Hoffman getting crushed again. Each time he comes out of the bullpen I get sick to my stomach. I'm still sick to my stomach.
Message to Macha, if you have a pitcher who can't save a game then DON'T KEEP PUTTING HIM OUT THERE!!!!!!!!! If you have a pitcher who is pitching very well and fooling the opponent, LEAVE HIM IN THE GAME!!!!!!!! Just because you have a pitcher who has the letters CL (closer) behind his name, doesn't mean that you have to go to him no matter what. Use your freaking head and go with your gut. Or maybe your gut told you that Hoffman was the right move in that situation. If that's what you truly believed, then you should get the hell out of Milwaukee too.
