So what's gonna happen?

The MLB board will become lively again when/if the Brewers crawl out of the cellar? Or do they need to get into Wild Card contention for all the bandwagon fans to return? [afro]



Am I a bandwagon fan because I chose not to post often when the team is not any good?

Perhaps, there just isn't that much to talk about outside of who they are going to trade off this season.

Just do a search of "It's Gonna Happen" on this message board and you should be all caught up....

I don't get what anybody sees in Khris Davis...he's a low-level journeyman OF.

Maybe it's because he was actually developed by the organization??? Which says a lot about the state of the Brewers.

If we are going to pull out individual at-bats, don't forget about the strikeout his first at-bat with two guys on after getting ahead in the count 3-1.... Had a chance to get a lead and get Uncle Mo back in the Brewers dugout, but failed.

I wasn't pulling out. I just pulled up the website and was reading and he hit it.

There's a ton more than that over the years.

I think "It's Gonna Happen" means I was going to lose the game thread. Oh well, it twas a good run, the best run this year.

Hahahaha ya search it. You will find me all over it because of a bunch of signs I saw at a Cubs game. The fans were stating "It's Gonna Happen" as in this is our year. When in fact, we all knew it wasn't going to be. I use It's Gonna Happen now to reference that we are not going to finish in last and that we won't be the worst team in baseball.

But ya, I use that phrase a lot, ever since seeing those signs everywhere. I don't remember which year, but it seemed like the entire franchise and fanbase adopted the saying.



That was the Shawon-O-Meter!
