Brewers Release Jonathan Lucroy Anti-Cardinals All-Star Game Ad, Matheny Isn’t Amused [VIDEO]
In a push to get their catcher Jonathan Lucroy into the MLB All-Star game, the Milwaukee Brewers released a politcal themed ad taking shots at their NL Central rival, the St. Louis Cardinals and their catcher Yadier Molina. It’s pretty hilarious.
Not to mention, Jonathan Lucroy doesn’t have neck tattoos and can round the bases in under 6 minutes.
The Brewers didn’t stop their political ads there. They made one for Carlos Gomez as well.
Of course, you probably assumed that the St. 1xbet arabic Louis Cardinals wouldn’t appreciate the Lucroy commercial. لعبة قمار للايفون Manager Mike Matheny spoke out about the commercial earlier today. The following quote comes via MLB.com:
“I think you have to take it in the nature in which it was meant and it was meant to be geared toward their fan base,” Matheny said. “It was just amazing that it was that much directed at our organization. I think that part probably caught me off-guard the most.
“Not saying that’s surprising. We’ve gone through this the last few years, especially last year with the Cardinal Way stuff getting blown way out of proportion. I think it can put a bad taste in a lot of peoples’ mouth. But in defense of the recognition that our guys have had — whether it’s having a number of guys on the All-Star team — that stuff isn’t just handed out. These guys have worked hard for that. They have deserved it, and they have earned it, and I don’t think that’s anything for us to apologize for.”
Why do the Cardinals put a bad taste in people’s mouths? Well, for one, they’re feel-good story killers. And, well, for two.
Mike Matheny is the manager for the National League All-Star team this season, so let’s all vote a million times each for Jonathan Lucroy just to create that awkward moment. اسرار لعبة البوكر
