So, About Those Brewers...

See these guys? Do you have any idea who they are? If you can't already tell, these are your 2009 NL Central champions. Anyone who thinks otherwise is beyond foolish, at this point.

Supporting the Brewers at this point is one thing, but believing in them is a whole different story. The Brewers season ended weeks ago, but unfortunately I feel that some of you may have been thinking, "well, if the Brewers sweep the Cardinals here.... then sweep them the next time we play them... maybe get hot down the stretch...." Please, if that's you, don't waste your time. There's a whole other world out there waiting for you.

If you follow this blog even remotely, you already know that I've soured on the Brewers this season, which may or may not be due to the fact that I lost some money because they won't be making the playoffs this season. But that's neither here nor there. You may also notice, however, that I haven't really updated this site in a while, for whatever reason. But I can tell you it wasn't because I was busy watching Brewers games. I actually think the last game that I saw a little bit of was when they came back in the 9th inning against the Reds last week, only to lose in extra innings. I'm not bragging or anything, that's just the state of the team at this point.

But if you are one of those people that never says die until we are mathematically eliminated, I suppose it has been an interesting couple of days. The Brewers swept the Pirates at home to make it 20 straight wins against them at Miller Park. They lost to the Cardinals last night, but that's nothing new. Oh, and Chris Smith and J.J. Hardy were the only two September call-ups, even though Hardy is being a whiny little turd that can't deal with the reality check that he's just not a very good hitter. There's going to be a lot of sad little girls when Hardy gets traded in three months.

So that's pretty much where I stand with the Brewers at this point. Now that I think about it, maybe not posting anything for the last three days was a good thing. Because instead of three different articles where I act like a whiny little turd about the Brewers, there is only the one.

Anyways, as far as the last three Player of the Game awards are concerned, McGehee gets them for Sunday and Monday, while Escobar earns one for Saturday. No actual box score links, but here's the next reference for the Box Score Contest:

Y'all go ahead, I think I'm gonna kick it with my girl today.

And, hold the phone for one minute here, are you seriously telling me that more than 40,000 people showed up for JEFF SUPPAN bobblehead day on Sunday? How much can that thing be worth?
