The Milwaukee Brewers haven't posted a winning season for 11 years and haven't made the playoffs since 1982. They had a 68-94 record last season and considered it progress. But the last month has been as disastrous as any the team has experienced, on or off the field. By deciding to gut their payroll, the Brewers have incurred the wrath of fans and politicians alike. The franchise, controlled by the family of baseball commissioner Bud Selig, was supposed to have been saved with the opening of Miller Park in 2001.

At the urging of the media, manager Larry Bowa sat in the visiting clubhouse yesterday at Miller Park and contemplated some of the shortcomings that have kept the Phillies below .500 for all but six days of this season. The list was long, but it really couldn't compare to the many deficiencies of the Milwaukee Brewers, who must now also answer this question: What's in worse shape, the house that Bud built or the team that Bud bought? Bud, of course, is commissioner Bud Selig, who purchased the Brewers and moved them from Seattle in 1969, then pushed hard for Milwaukee to build a $400-million retractable-roof ballpark to help the small-market team compete with the big boys.

The San Francisco Giants have made an offer for Phillies second baseman Chase Utley, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Columnist Bruce Jenkins posted the news on Twitter Thursday night, quoting Giants general manager Bobby Evans as saying he was "just waiting to hear" from the Phillies. "He doubts a deal goes down tonight," Jenkins said. Several teams have made offers for Utley, sources told MLB.com, but no deal is imminent. The Giants expect all-star Joe Panik to return in the coming weeks from a back injury.

How's this for a visiting fan's nightmare? John and Meggan Peyton of West Chester flew in on Friday. Yesterday, they faithfully followed the rental car's GPS to Miller Park and arrived hours before the game. Midway through their Sam Adams, they noticed they were quite alone in a large crowd wearing the other colors. The GPS had marooned them in a parking lot hard for most out-of-towners to find and thus cherished by Milwaukeeans as exclusive, fervent tailgating territory. In Philly, this is the kind of thing that could ruin a Dallas fan's whole weekend.

MILWAUKEE - In an attempt to inject more energy into Miller Park, the Brewers wore special gold uniforms Saturday as part of a promotion for their fans to "Go Gold. " Of course, last Tuesday the team unveiled a new line of merchandise that just so happens to be all gold. All Brewers stadium employees wore the gold T-shirts. One of the more popular shirts is an ode to the eccentric Nyjer Morgan, who ends his TV interviews by saying, "Ahhhh . . . gotta go!" So that phrase was emblazoned on a T-shirt.

Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker said that his racial and ethnic comments in a magazine article made him sound like "a complete jerk. " In his first interview since the uproar began, the relief pitcher, 25, spoke to ESPN at his house in Macon, Ga., and again apologized and repeated that he was not a racist. He pointed out that several minority players stayed in his house while they were playing for the Braves' minor-league affiliate in Macon. "I'll reiterate again and apologize one more time to anybody I've offended," Rocker said.

Exton, a region known for its shopping malls and traffic jams, is about to add something new - a public park. On a vacant 21-acre piece of ground at the corner of Waterloo Boulevard and Miller Way, workers with heavy earth-moving equipment started carving out the Albert C. Miller Memorial Park. The new park is being built behind the Whiteland Towne Shopping Center and west of Route 100. It is the first new public park to be built using money from Chester County's open-space program, said county spokeswoman Joan E. Pitt.

As expected, righthander Dave Bush was named to start for the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 3 against the Phillies tomorrow at Miller Park. The former Conestoga High star was 9-10 with a 4.18 ERA this season. Dale Sveum, the Brewers' interim manager, said that since the all-star break, Bush had been Milwaukee's second-best pitcher, behind last night's starter, CC Sabathia. "He has been one of the top pitchers numbers-wise in the game over the last two months," Sveum said of Bush.

SIX MONTHS AGO, Jonathan Papelbon sat in his locker stall in the visiting clubhouse at Milwaukee's Miller Park and held court with reporters. The subject: the upcoming July 31 trade deadline. The summary of Papelbon's stance: Get me the heck out of here. Perhaps Papelbon finally will get his wish, and, coincidentally, find a new home in the city where he voiced his opinion last summer. Yahoo Sports reported early yesterday morning that the Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers have had "serious discussions" about a Papelbon trade.

CAME ACROSS a story that the Milwaukee Brewers were having a bobblehead night for Hank. Being a bobblehead collector, I naturally thought "Milwaukee . . . Hank . . . How cool is that? A bobblehead night for Hank Aaron. " Wrong! Hank is a dog that wandered into Maryvale Baseball Park, the Brewers' spring-training site in Phoenix, last month and soon after was taken to the vet by Brewers staff members. After Hank was treated for lacerations on his underside, staffers bought him a bed, set him up in the office and took turns taking him home at night.

WHENEVER anyone asks me to tell a Charlie Manuel story, this is the story I will tell: It was October 2008. The Phillies had just beaten the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Division Series. The Champagne spraying had ceased, for the most part. Manuel was hiding out in the visiting manager's office at Miller Park. I poked my head in. "Close the door," he said. We talked for about 10 minutes, give or take. The standard black phone sat on the standard metal desk and rang almost constantly, but Manuel ignored it. His own cellphone, one of those old clamshells, also was blowing up, vibrating and dancing across the desktop.

Even when he's not at Miller Park, disgraced Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is causing trouble. Take what happened to Milwaukee fan Karen Eidem on Wednesday night. She decided to show her frustration with the team and its star's cheating by wearing a Ryan Braun jersey she had modified to read: "FRAUD. " And just like that, security tapped her on the shoulder and told her the shirt violated the fan code of conduct and that she would have to change or leave the ballpark. Eidem turned the shirt inside out and stayed for the game.

BOSTON - The boos were meant for the closer in his New England homecoming, but they could have just as easily been directed to the manager in the visiting dugout at Fenway Park last night had they been sounded off by the healthy flock of Phillies fans in town. Jonathan Papelbon, who spent his first eight major league seasons in Boston, was called on by Charlie Manuel to take the ball in a two-run game in the ninth inning. Cliff Lee, who spent the first eight innings making the Red Sox bats look limp, was told to take a seat.

Maybe he doesn't like avocado, or prefers pizza with pepperoni instead of pineapple. But whatever the reason, first baseman Carlos Lee would not accept a trade from bottom-feeding Houston to the contending Los Angeles Dodgers. Lee has a limited no-trade clause and his permission was needed to complete the deal. ESPN The Magazine said Lee, who is the final season of a six-year contract, told the Astros on Sunday that he would not allow the trade. The injury-depleted Dodgers were shut out for the sixth time in 12 games on Saturday and have produced only two runs in their last 57 innings.

JOE MATHER'S two-run single with two outs in the ninth inning lifted the Chicago Cubs to a 3-2 comeback win over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. St. Louis closer Jason Motte (1-1) had the Cubs down to their final strike when Mather, a former Cardinal, grounded a 2-2 slider up the middle, scoring Bryan LaHair and Geovany Soto. LaHair battled Motte for 12 pitches before drawing a one-out walk. Motte then walked Soto, before Steve Clevenger's grounder moved the runners up to set the plate for Mather.

MILWAUKEE - Shaun Marcum thinks people really want to see two aces face off in Game 7 with the NL pennant on the line. He can go a long way to forcing that matchup with a strong effort Sunday. Marcum will get the ball for Milwaukee when it faces Edwin Jackson and St. Louis in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, with the Brewers trailing, three games to two, in the best-of-seven series. If the Brewers win, Yovani Gallardo would pitch against Chris Carpenter on Monday night.

MILWAUKEE - The Brewers are so hot in Milwaukee this fall that they've obscured the Super Bowl-champion Packers' 4-0 start. Their tickets are being scalped. Their hats and jerseys are ubiquitous. Their players can't go anywhere without being mobbed. Ron Roenicke doesn't have that problem. Thursday night, on the eve of one of the biggest games in franchise history, as the city buzzed with Brewers talk, Milwaukee's first-year manager stopped his car when, on his way home, he noticed a man fishing near the team's Miller Park parking lot. "I saw a guy fly-fishing out there," he said before his Brewers beat the Diamondbacks in Friday's Game 5 and advanced to the NL Championship Series.
