The story of this game is simple. Todd Coffey couldn’t shut the door against a terrible Astros team. Yes, Casey McGehee made an error, but it was possibly the hardest hit error that I’ve seen all year – Coffey’s not completely off the hook there. He’s simply not a shut down reliever – and never really has been – but unfortunately, Parra’s short, if decent, start put us in a bad situation.

Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart continued to hit, but Prince Fielder had a poor game, going hitless against the myriad of Astros pitchers the Brewers saw tonight.

This loss really hurts, as both the Cardinals and the Reds won tonight.

    Is it just me, or has Prince been incredibly non-clutch this season? I can’t help but think all the K’s with men on base won’t be helping his trade value (for the Brewers) or salary negotiations (for Prince).

      He’s been pretty brutal with RISP – if you check the FanGraphs player pages, they have splits for low, medium and high leverage too, and he’s been poor in high leverage situations. I don’t think it’s predictive – no reason to assume it’ll continue, as far as I can tell – but you’re right, it certainly doesn’t help the Brewers in any way.
