Brewers Inching Closer to .500

Due to not only my lack of Brewers coverage, but also some recent comments I've made in my real life, some people have been whispering that I'm growing into a bandwagon Brewers fan. While that couldn't be farther from the truth, I will admit that I could be doing a better job finding time to watch the Crew. However, 90% of the reason I haven't been watching Milwaukee is because I'm playing Madden obsessively, so that give me some leeway.

But I am still invested in this team, and I do still want to care even though the playoffs are a distant dream. The Brewers have been playing better baseball lately, led by the home run smashing Prince Fielder, the ever improving Jody Gerut, and the rookie of the year candidate in Casey McGehee. So there is definitely still reason to watch these guys, one of those being that after a sweep of Houston they they are now 74-75, one game back of .500.

Surely, .500 isn't what it used to be, especially with the Brewers tasting the playoffs last season. But watching them try to pull together another winning season is something certainly worth making the time for, and hopefully they can use these last couple of weeks to build some momentum heading into next year.

Unless I'm busy playing Madden, of course.

POTG's: Casey McGehee, Jeff Suppan, Jody Gerut.
