Wink WHY THE BREWCREW WILL FAIL

It's quite obvious after the 2 games that they're defense sucks. They ain't going far with that sieve. You can have the best pitching in the world but you have to have guys that can field if you want to go to the dance.

Yep

You can't kick the ball around as much as they do and not be in trouble. It was nice to be able to relax and enjoy the game last night. As much as the night before seemed out of control this one was smooth sailing. thanks Big Z!

They are definitely bad defensively, but I'm sure if we put our heads together, we could come up with an equally poor defensive team that went deep into the playoffs.

definately agree about their defense being an issue-

i also look at 3 of their key starters hitting below .230
Hall, Weeks and Cameron. that's not going to get it done.

they would be smart to talk to Tornoto about Scott Rolen. He's a better option than Hall or Branyan at 3B.

i also see why we didn't keep Kendall. he's really on the decline.

I don't think you all saw what really happened in those two games .The Brewers are not as bad as we made them look . The Cubs forced those errors and exploited the weakness of the Brewers . The scouting on this team was excellent , whoever did the scouting needs to be in charge the playoff schedule . We were very prepared for this series and may explain or losses last week . I suspect we have been working towards this series for some time .

mmmmmmm ,,,,,,,,,, hotdogs

I love Chiliman Hotdog Sauce on mine and I'd be damned if they don't make it any more , or at least I can't find it .

I even went so far as to e-mail the company and , of coarse I never heard back from them

I wonder if this thread would have been made 2 days ago. Lets play some more games before we start declaring that the Brewers will fail. They still have a better offense then the Cubs. And every week they will be throwing Sheets and Sabathia on the mound. Long way to go here people.
