Brewers win again

The Astros gave it a good shot but they fell in 11 innings thanks to a 3 run dinger by damian miller. I know we get our shot at them this weekend but it is a little disheartening that we have won our last 6, but only gained 1 game in that time. I don't know if anyone is paying attention yet, but we are 5.5 games out of the wild card and actually making ground up nearly every day. Some of you may say it's far too early to look at the wild card standings. For me it is never ever too early to be watching the standings. We need to go 6-4 to be 1 game over .500 at the all-star break. Now this is very doable and I will be quite dissappointed if they do not accomplish this. We need 2 out of 3 from the Brewers and then a winning road trip to keep this thing going.

That has been the most frustrating! We are playing what was expected of this team all along...and can't gain any ground. Earlier this year, the excuse "it's early" was used.... and now look how huge those losses are costing us now! There is still time, but jeez.... if we could turn back time.

The Brewers are playing great baseball. I think they are the best team in the NL. They are solid at every position on the field. They have veteran back ups that are all good players. Their bullpen is a shade under the Padres, but really close. Their starting pitching, with this guy we will see Friday, is good as well. The guy we are seeing Friday was rated as the top pitching prospect in all of baseball a few weeks ago. He has had 2 good starts so far. Sheets is an ace and Capuano, Suppan, Bush and Vargas are all good in their own right. I assume the new guy, Guardado, or Bush will go to the pen when Capuano gets back. They really have no holes, except defensively- Estrada, Fielder, and Hall in CF are very average.

They are not even the top 3 in the NL. Trust me I get all the Brewers games here and while they are good, they are very young team (that doesn't mean a whole lot to them right now ) that had a pretty darn bad slump for over a month. Also, I want everyone to check who's the best against the central. The Mets, Dodgers and Padres are all better teams than the Brewers (Not in record of course), I'm talking veteran teams that know how to play down the stretch in brutally hot weather and have a history of winning as a team. The Brewers have not made the playoffs since 1992.

I think the Cubs just need to keep playing with the same sense of urgency which they've displayed the last week or so. Not desperation, but urgency. I love the way the responded after blowing that lead Monday night. While blowing five run leads isn't something I want to see ever again, not many teams would have responded the way the Cubs did that night. And they carried it over into victories the next two games. We're starting to see the team we expected to see, so I think the ceiling is high. While it would have been great to pick up some more games on the Brewers, the Cubs have a great opportunity to do just that this weekend.

I hope your right Neifi, but in my opinion they have the best make up of any team. The Mets look better on paper but I think their starting pitching is suspect, not to mention Delgado and his start. The Padres and Dodgers do not have anywhere near the offense that the Brewers have. They are young - that is one thing going against them. They are short a LH in the pen. Thats it. No Holes anywhere. Every position- good player.

Looking at their rosters- Im not sure a Dodger can start for the Brewers- maybe Jeff Kent, maybe Pierre

Padres- Marcus Giles, and Brian Giles if healthy

And the Cubs haven't won the world series since 1908. Streaks, good or bad, come to an end (hopefully). Yes the Brewers are a young team, but they are a very good young team. Am I saying they are going to win the division? No. But they have a very good chance of it. They are 30-13 at home. No other team in the central is even at .500 at home. If they keep that trend up, they will be in the hunt until the end. And making the plyaoffs is all that matters. Like the Cards proved last year, you don't have to be the best team in the playoffs to win, you just have to get hot at the right time. I just hope the Brewers cool off.

Do you realize that the Brewers have 8 players with as many if not more HRs than DLee.
