Let's Go For the Split!

With a two game set in St. Louis starting Tuesday for the Brewers, you gotta be happy if they walk away with the split. So far this season, the Brewers are 9-4 against the Cardinals, and it's the difference in the Wild Card standings right now, with the Brewers 3 1/2 games up. Splitting the upcoming series will keep those standings in tact, and leave the Brewers in a good position as they move forward.

It's at a time like this when you realize how huge that four game sweep a month ago in St. Louis turned out to be. That sweep has allowed the Brewers a little breathing room as they try to make the playoffs for the first time in my lifetime. Just as the Cubs sweep of the Brew in Miller Park has given them some breathing room, and in prime position to win the NL Central.

Even though it's just two games, it's sure to be a great series. Tuesday night the Crew will send Ben Sheets out against Todd Wellemeyer, while Wednesday's game features Manny Parra vs. Adam Wainwright.

Pick up that split boys!

They should probably try for the sweep first.

Ha, yeah, that wouldn't be a bad idea either.

I thin the split has got to be the worst we hope for... sweep is still the best case scenario. Go Brewers!

wouldnt complain about a split, but it seems a little '05 brewerish to root for one. lets get em both.

If you look closely, that's a peace sign on the bowling ball.

if you look even closer and carefully count the pins, a guy in an ape costume walks across the cartoon.
