Milwaukee is... MEDIOCRE!


Honestly, I can't really remember the last time I was excited about Brewer baseball once the Green Bay Packers opened training camp-- but I am this year. With 50 games to go, the Brewers are actually at the .500 mark, and they just came off of back-to-back series wins on the road, defeating both the Mets and Phillies (both with winning records) 2 games to 1. Plus, the Brewers play 31 of those 50 remaining games at Miller Park, where they are currently 10 games above .500. And they are 14-10 since the All-Star break.

Heady numbers for a group that hasn't finished the season at or above .500 in 13 years. The road through September won't be a cakewalk, though-- the Brewers still play a lot of games against St. Louis (including a series starting today) and Houston. But hey, 81 wins or more looks doable-- and would bode well for next year, since the new owner is allowing at least some expansion of the salaries.

Go Brewers!

But I'm still ready for some football.
