Packers training camp couldn't have come at a better time for Wisconsin sports fans, because this Brewers team is getting tougher to watch every single day. I'm not sure how many of you took the time to actually watch their series against the Astros over the weekend, but if you did you sure did waste nine hours of your life. In a series that was taking place amongst the backdrop of the trade deadline, the Brewers showed everyone that they definitely are not going to be competitive this season, sellers or not.

It took Milwaukee three full days before they finally put up a run against this Astros team, and that wasn't until Corey Hart homered in the 6th inning of the matinee game on Sunday. That was about the only moment of joy this Brewers team had all weekend, however, as soon after that Randy Wolf was bounced from the game after he got hit with a line drive, and then the bullpen gave up a handful of runs to give the Astros the 5-2 victory.
There really were no other bright spots throughout the rest of the weekend for the Crew other than the one Hart home run. On Friday, it was the J.A. Happ show and the Brewers only collected four hits. On Saturday, Wandy Rodriquez through a gem through eight innings and the Brewers were left scoreless once again. Even on Sunday, some reliever named Wesley Wright got the start and shut down the Brewers as well. The three losses put the Brewers back down to ten games under .500, a mark where they have been hovering around all season.
At this point, I'm not sure how much interest we should be putting into the Brewers over the next two months. I guess we can look at the next eight weeks as the Prince Fielder farewell tour, but other than that I'm not sure. I went to a game last week against the Reds and the Brewers just got their asses handed to them so bad that it almost wasn't fun to be there. That being said, I'm apparently going to two games on this next homestand so we'll see how that goes. It's amazing how different of a game baseball can be when your team is contending versus when your team is doing anything but.
POTGs for the weekend - Casey McGehee, Chris Capuano, Corey Hart
