Wittardo: Loved By All

Brewers season grades are out from the Journal Sentinel.

Seth McClung, RHP - Once again, McClung was versatile enough to pitch in relief and as a starter. But, unlike 2008 when that experiment worked, McClung wasn't nearly as successful. In two starts, he was 0-1 with a 12.27 ERA (10 runs in 7 1/3 innings) after going 4-4 with a 4.24 ERA as a starter last year. McClung had a nice relief stretch in May, pitching 15 1/3 innings and allowing three runs. But he couldn't duplicate those numbers afterward and fell out of favor. His season ended on a sour note with a sprained elbow ligament in July that sidelined him for more than a month, with sporadic work in the closing weeks. McClung finished 3-3 with a 4.94 ERA. GRADE: D-plus.

Why do we care about McClung's grade? Since Seth McClung is a Twitter guy, we get the benefit of his unedited reaction to this grade:

A D+ Grade? That must have been a Wittardo grade

Awesome. Not only does it confirm that the players think Witrado is a clown, but you better believe that he didn't mis-spell that name...that's what he calls Witrado, most likely to his face.


  1. If anyone doesn't like Twitter, this is the shining example why it just might be awesome. Let's see if we can coax TH into referring to him by that nickname too.

  2. Calling him a clown is an insult.

    It's good to have confirmation that WiTTrado is hated by the players as well.

    McClung is awesome. We need him back.

  3. Outstanding. also good to see of McClung's 26 twitter accounts he follows Ol Pal Matty LaPorta is on e along with Mark Cuban, Alyssa Milano and my favorite Shaq.

    Locally, WTMJ, WI Sports Network, and JSonline

    good times on twitter, solid moring procrastination. thanks Stryker

  4. wait let me add he follows "tom" that would be the big TH not Wittardo

  5. That's my bad clown. Poor choice of words.
