Brewers damage control: Fans offered $10 vouchers to show up


You think it's rough being a Twins fan?

It's piece of cake (Twinkies, preferably) compared to being a Brewer backer.

Item: Slugger Ryan Braun. Gone for the season for juicing.

Item: Milwaukee's record. It's 43-61, good for last place in the N.L. Central, fourth-worst in the majors.

Item: It's come to this. Fans who buy a ticket in August, will be given a $10 voucher good for food, drinks, merchandise and game tickets, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Brewers principal owner Mark Attanasio: "We wanted to do something meaningful."

The Brewers have 12 home games in August. The team is expected to give out more than $3.6 million worth of vouchers.
