This is a weird feeling that I'm getting when regards to the Brewers lately. It's a feeling of supreme confidence, that's really all it is, but a feeling I've never had when regarding the Milwaukee Brewers. They win and it's expected. They lose, and it's not a big deal, because they'll just probably win tomorrow. Even if they scuffle for awhile, they are so far in front in the NL Central (currently 10 1/2 games) that they are most likely capable of overcoming a losing streak. Now as I say that, enter the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Brewers face the Cardinals in six of the next nine games, a stretch which could either give the Cardinals a fighting chance in this thing or wrap up the Central for the Brewers once and for all. In that stretch, the Brewers have three other games against the Astros, a series you would like to see the Brewers sweep. The Cardinals have those other three games against the Reds, so hopefully we'll see Milwaukee a lot closer to a playoff birth come ten days from now.
I know that I'm being shitty about recaps lately - as the blog usually is the first thing to be sacrificed when my personal life is beyond busy. But if I could sum up what I've missed this week in one sentence for you to realize how good this Brewers team is.... Zack Greinke stole a base on Sunday.
POTGs from the week: Chris Narveson, Corey Hart, Nyjer Morgan, Shaun Marcum, Corey Hart, Zack Greinke
