Scuba's NASCAR Pick 3: Week 22 Results

Monday, Aug, 11 2014



Our NASCAR Pick 3 is going strong!  Scuba’s Bar and Grill in Appleton is on board this season challenging you to beat the experts!

Every week, on WSCO, Alex Hayden of MRN Radio & Ben Brust of the Badgers join Justin Hull to talk NASCAR.  At the end the conversation, one listener will be chosen to call in and pick 3 drivers for the Sprint Cup Race that weekend.  After that, our expert panel of Alex, Ben, Justin and Justin’s Dad will pick their 3 for the race.

It’s golf style scoring so the lower the scorer, the better.  You get points for whatever position each of your drivers finish.  If you pick the winning driver, we subtract 5-points from your total.  If the listener beats 3 of 4 or sweeps the panel, it’s a $25 Gift Card to Scuba’s.  If you beat just one, it’s a $10 Gift Card to Scuba’s.

Will the Brewers make a move? #HullYes or #HullNo

Thursday, Jul, 31 2014

Jon Lester on June 29, 2009

You have to think that with the recent struggles the Brewers have gone through the urgency is there for them to do something before Thursday’s 3PM cst trade deadline, right?

Names like Jon Lester and David Price have been tossed out in the rumor mill, but let’s be honest…starting pitching is not the biggest need for this team and do the Brewers have the pieces to give up to acquire one of these guys?  With that said, I would welcome either to the rotation but my expectations are low!

That moves the attention moves to first base.  Well, that was the thought before Mark Reynolds got hot once again.  Remember in 2011 when the Brewers had issues at SS then Yuni B. got hot and the Brewers held on to him?  I see the same thing happening with Reynolds.

The bullpen?  Absolutely they need some help!  Will Smith and Francisco Rodriguez have looked pedestrian the last few weeks after amazing starts.  Outside of Zack Duke, there is not a lot of confidence in the Brewers pen.  This remains the most likely spot for the Brewers to go after.

The flip side of all of this is who are the teams willing to sell?  A few of the middle-of-the-pack teams have inched their way back in the “false hope” category so they may become buyers instead of sellers.  With a limited market, price tags will likely go up adding to the decision process.

My prediction…#HullNo.  For some reason, I just don’t see things falling in place of an impact deal at the moment.  That doesn’t mean something will happen after the deadline.  Don’t expect to be doing cartwheels on your front lawn at 3:01.
