Dear Milwaukee Brewers (aka the winningest team in baseball, winners of nine straight games before April 14),
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
I love the pitching staff, specifically Lohse's arm and his steady concentration as he fans nine batters.
I love Gomez's amazing ability to smack the ball with men on base.
I love Segura's swift double-step as he gets set to throw to first.
I love both Braun's and Overbay's ability to drive the ball and slide into second.
I love Ramirez's strength.
I love Ron Roenecke's calm, steady leadership and his patient responses to reporters' questions.
Most of all, I am crazy about this year's win/loss record 10-3, as of April 15!
I confess I love boasting about my Brewers!
