Let's Turn Things Around Tonight

Despite the fact that the Brewers fell to .500 with a 9-4 loss against the Braves last night, despite the fact that the Cardinals are now the favorite to win the NL Central for the next 30 years because of one trade, and despite the many problems with the Brewers lineup in general, I still feel alright about this season.

But, we have to turn it around soon. The post All-Star break run in July was something we were looking forward to for a longtime now, because of all these teams we are playing that are under .500. But the problem is, unless we get our act together, the Brewers are going to be under .500 as well.

I don't see that happening though. I really feel like the Brewers are going to make a couple of trades (minor, yet effective ala Felipe Lopez) and that Macha has what it takes to make a contender out of these guys yet. Surprisingly, I'm not panicking at the .500 mark, which is new (although if we lose tonight, I'll probably write a post tomorrow about how the season is over).

Last night was a disappointment, yes (POTG: Ryan Braun), but let's band together and finish this series on a high note. The lineup for tonight:

2B Felipe Lopez
3B Craig Counsell
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
CF Mike Cameron
RF Frank Catalanotto
SS JJ Hardy
C Jason Kendall
RHP Yovani Gallardo

If I ever catch up with you, I'm gonna love you for the rest of my life.
