Signs of Optimism, Signs of Worry

I'm taking a new stance on the Brewers season. I'm not optimistic about their chances, but then again I'm not doubting them either. Right now, I guess my attitude towards the Brewers is non-existent. I love them, I will watch every game possible, and I will talk about them constantly, but I'm not going to get caught up in changing my mind about the season after every single game. It's just too stressful.

On Friday night, I think at one point I actually said, "Season is over". On Saturday afternoon, I became more optimistic, and on Saturday night I was making plans for the playoffs. Now, it's Sunday afternoon and I'm bummed about another loss. The Brewers are not playing good baseball right now, as they haven't won a series or even back-to-back games all month. But, even though they are .500, they are only 2.5 games back of the NL Central lead. And there's still plenty of baseball left to play.

The Brewers don't have much more time to hang out in this purgatory though. The trading deadline is less than a week away, and the Brewers need to make a move to stay competitive. The Cardinals, Cubs, and Astros aren't going to keep giving away games for us forever. And with Dave Bush sidelined now until at least mid-August, something needs to be done quickly. So while I'm pretending not to get caught up in the panic of being .500, if the Brewers are still playing this poorly one week from now, then it's going to be awfully hard not to throw up the white flag.

Saturday - Brewers 4, Braves 0

Player of the Game: Yovani Gallardo.

Sunday - Braves 10, Brewers 2

Player of the Game: Corey Hart.
