Choose your words carefully Luc. World Series or BUST!!!

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything.  Sorry about that.  Been busy.  But I have been inspired today to write by none other than one of my favorite Brewers players, Jonathan Lucroy.  He is the best catcher in baseball right now in my opinion.  He is unbelievable at the plate and behind it.  But his words today on the Bill Michaels show…paraphrased here by 1250 WSSP on social media…”Jonathan Lucroy told Bill Michaels (paraphrasing) We’ll do our best, worry about what we can control, and if we make the playoffs, so be it. If not, so be it….

Carlos, McCann, and the Heat of the Moment

Kyle Lohse threw an 89 pitch complete-game shutout last night!  Against the NL East Champion Atlanta Braves no less!  It was breathtakingly amazing!

THAT should be the story of last night’s Brewers game.  Unfortunately what many fans and media are talking about today is not Kyle Lohse’s near perfect outing.  It is instead The Bench Clearing Brawl.  And though I’d much rather talk about Lohse’s diving sliders and sexy curves and gloriously movement-laden fastballs and perfectly placed changeups, I’ll add to the pile and give you my thoughts on The Bench Clearing Brawl – as a Brewers fan and as a baseball fan.

I do not defend the actions of Carlos…

3-2-1 LAUNCH!!

So here it is!  My new website.  All my old blogs from frontrowamy.net are here and I plan to add new entries on a regular basis.  The offseason is fast approaching, so my blogs may not always be Brewer related, but I’ll try to keep them interesting and will definitely ask for fan input on what you’d like me to write about.

Also featured on the site, as you can see, are lots of pictures.  I will be adding photos on a regular basis as well.

Many fans have asked if I have a Front Row Amy t-shirt.  I’m working on…

Glass Half Full

Before I begin, I just wanna say….Only 88 days until Opening Day!!!!!!!!!!

As the 2013 season approaches, we Brewers fans are not COMPLETELY sure what the team will look like on April 1st, though we have a pretty good idea.  Same offense – damn good.  Re-tooled bullpen – improved, in my opinion, with no Parra and no Loe (nothing personal of course).  And a young starting rotation with question marks.  So this season could either be surprisingly (I wouldn’t be surprised, but national media would) good, or horribly bad.  And a fan’s anticipation of the direction this team will take in 2013 probably depends a lot…

No Crying In Baseball

I have been fielding a lot of hate lately. Guess that’s par for the course. Some people criticizing me for not being a fan of the Brewers/baseball for years and years – since I was a little girl.  Well, I guess I’ll address that & also tell you how I feel now – crazy as it may be.  Some people are hateful and judgmental, but I’m an open book anyway. I hate the hate, but when I share my feelings, I guess I invite it. Oh well…so be it…here goes.

My Mom and Dad got divorced when I was two years old….

One of my faves :)

Brauny "flying around the bases. 9/25/08Ok I have to preface this with a smidge of an explanation.  I wrote this back in 2008.  I had a 20 game season seat package back then & I had purchased this single seat about a month before because I wanted to sit in the front row .   I did not own Seat 5, Row 1, Section 117  then.  I did not dream I would EVER own this seat back then.  But there I sat.  And part of the reason I decided to purchase the seat I…

Adam Greenberg

adam_greenberg_autograph2So as some of you know, I’ve adopted a cause. Adam Greenberg. He’s a cub, yes. But that shouldn’t matter. Take off your Brewers hats and put on your baseball caps.  He’s a baseball player!!  Adam Greenberg was hit by a pitch in his first at-bat with the Chicago Cubs. All these guys dream about their whole lives is to get to the Bigs. Here’s this guy who finally gets his chance and BAM! It’s over.  Probably the worst thing that could happen…happened.  He was hit by a pitch in the HEAD in his…

My Love

Everyone knows that I love the Brewers with an endless and undying passion. They are a part of me. When they’re here and I’m at the game, I’m so happy! When they’re on the road, I miss them terribly. And in the offseason, well, I don’t want to talk about that. The void is tremendous.

There are fans who understand this love for, not only the team, but also the players…well, most of the players anyway .  But some people, including my husband at times, do not understand the endless Brewerlove that consumes me. So I thought I’d TRY to explain it.  It’s going…

Top 10

148-copy3-198x300Hey! The Brewers swept the Reds! Isn’t that exciting?!  I’m excited! And I know many of you are excited as well! But I also know that some fans are ready to throw in the towel. The Brewers are 51-59, 4th in the Division, 14.5 games out of 1st place, AND Packers season officially begins tonight. ”Bring on football!” say these fairweather fans.  And to these fickle, fairweather, football-famished fans I could say, “Fine, good riddance, who needs ya”, but I won’t. Because I don’t WANT these fans to bail. I want to convince them to stay, to…

Dear Zack

It’s no secret to anyone how desperately I want Zack Greinke to remain a Brewer for years to come. I know not everyone agrees with me. Chances of signing him are slim, they say, so we may as well trade him and build for the future. Plus, they argue, paying that much for one player doesn’t make sense for a small market team like the Brewers. Valid points. Rational left-brain statements. I really can’t argue, so I won’t. My desire for Zack to stay is most definitely fueled by my love of great pitching, and love does not follow…
