Last night was not a good night to be a Milwaukee Brewers fan after falling Game 1 to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The offensive disaster was the worst issue that sat with the fans after leaving 11 runners on base during the game last night and not scoring from the second inning on when they had tons of opportunities.
After watching the first four innings of last night’s game it was clear to everyone that Brewers Ace Pitcher Corbin Burnes was not on his A-Game, giving up three home runs and four Earned Runs, and on the side of that only pitched four innings, let’s just say last nights game was a whole disaster in it’s own.
The Sellout Issue
During Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series, it was clear to anyone at the game that it was not a sellout, even know most reporters said it was it could not have been. First of all, looking up in the 400 section there were plenty of seats open that could have been bought but nobody was occupying those seats.
The Tampa Bay Rays were the absolute embarrassment of the MLB yesterday first of all they lost their first game at home but second, they only brought 19,704 fans to that game and then continued by using the excuse that it was a 3:08PMEDT start, but MLB fans do not buy that excuse seeing that in Minnesota they had no problem drawing fans for the exact same time drawing 38,450 people to the game.
MLB Owner Caught Leaving Game While Team Was Still In Reach:
In Milwaukee last night one Twitter user who was sitting near the Brewers dugout caught a video of Milwaukee Brewers owner Mark Attanasio leaving Game 1 of the NL Wild Card early when the score was still 4-3. We will have the fan reactions below but, obviously, some of the defense was maybe he was heading to the clubhouse or somewhere not home but that remains to be known.
Just witnessed owner Attanasio leaving a PLAYOFF game still in reach. Straight disrespect to the ballclub & fans. Need someone committed to the team, not his entourage @Brewers pic.twitter.com/16jRZzdBZG

This comes at the heated moment of time on the Stadium Funding issue in the State of Wisconsin and that was brought up several times in the comment section as well, as he is asking taxpayers to help fund improvements to American Family Field.
Another major thing that was brought up was his Soccer team or his relocation of the Milwaukee Brewers process, as he is leading the committee of the relocation of the Oakland Athletics and that does not sit well with Brewers fans at all.
Barstool Sports Blogger Calls Out Mark Attanasio in August
Chris Klemmer of Barstool Sports in New York called out Mark Attanasio when talking about the Milwaukee Brewers’ World Series chances back in August, mainly blaming Attanasio for distracting the Brewers from winning a World Series and “Scamming” the State of Wisconsin by asking for stadium funding from taxpayers as he has seen this done by many other owners before as well.
(WARNING STRONG LANGUAGE COULD BE USED BUT IS BLEEPED)
We asked @ChrisKlemmer if the Brewers can win the World Series
His answer is “No” and a lot of hate towards ownership pic.twitter.com/I4r95PLxGs

The reason why I bring up this video right now is because it is gaining lots of attention after the Milwaukee Brewers loss on Tuesday Night after one fan reshared it in response to the Mark Attanasio leaving early video which can be seen at the beginning of this article.
Klemmer also brought up how “Cheap” Attanasio has been over the years with acquiring talent to come to the City of Milwaukee and that’s part of what is hurting them from winning a World Series. Chris Klemmer is a fan of the New York Mets as well.
FANS REACT TO MARK ATTANASIO LEAVING EARLY:
He had to take real care of his soccer team
— Aaron Moldenhauer (@AaronMoldenhau1) October 4, 2023
Clearly he was headed straight for his car and nowhere else in the stadium.

He probably has to wake up early for soccer game
— Tom (@TomShambeau) October 4, 2023
He did what he’s always set out to do. Make the playoffs. He doesn’t care if the team wins as long as they are in the hunt or make the playoffs barely. We paid $35 for parking tonight. That was the “general” prices. He’s good trust me. He doesn’t care.

Has to make sure the moving vans are ready to take the team to Charlotte or Nashville
— Thornton Melon (@URaRa_Wisconsin) October 4, 2023
Maybe he’s going to the box, locker room, or doing something else Brewers related?

You know…as owner of the team, he prolly has a suite. Or a place elsewhere in the stadium.
