Jason Kidd was
introduced to the Wisconsin media in a short
press conference on Wednesday afternoon. 
Kidd and Bucks ownership were pretty coy in talking about how he
actually ended up leaving the Nets and in Milwaukee.  Kidd reiterated that he was hired in Milwaukee to be the head coach and not a more significant
role in the organization as he allegedly asked for in Brooklyn.  The Bucks owners did admit they make a few
mistakes in the process of getting Kidd to the Bucks.


Encarnacion’s mammoth three run homer in the bottom of the 9th off
Brandon Kintzler provided a walk-off 7-4 win for the Blue Jays over the
Brewers  on Wednesday afternoon in  Toronto.  Will Smith took the loss for Milwaukee.  Ryan Braun drove in a pair in the loss.  Neither manager saw the end of the two game
sweep for the Jays as both managers were ejected in the 8th inning
for arguing calls.  The Brewers take
today off and open up a three game holiday weekend series in Cincinnati on Friday night.
