NOTHING TO SEE HERE, MOVE ALONG!
THE COP ON SOUTH PARK & THE CREW
For you South Park fans, you'll get this. For everyone else, I'll explain. On South Park, usually there are about 3 bodies laying in the streets, and the town's police chief always says "nothing to see here, move along."
Somehow, I feel like this is Ned Yost at about this point of the season. Especially after a homestand that's currently 2-7, with 24 runs scored in those 9 games. It's really troubling that the pinch hit 3-run homer in the 7th by Ray Durham could have been one of the plays of the year. And especially with the Cubs and Phillies losing, the Crew would have been 3.5 behind the Cubs, and 4 ahead of the Phillies. Now they're currently 3 up on Philly, as they get set for a huge 4 game set in the City of Brotherly Love starting on Thursday. Now it's just another emotional downer loss in 11 innings.
Rickie Weeks errors in the 8th and 9th innings didn't cost the Brewers a run. Alcides Escobar's base running gaffe might have. But as I mentioned weeks ago (on August 19th, check it out here http://www.todaystmj4.com/bloggers/lanceallan/27121039.html, good teams in the postseason don't make these mistakes routinely in the late innings.
Now that being said, the Brewers are still in control of their own destiny. And at 82-63 with 19 games to play, all the Brewers have to do is go 12-7 and they finish 94-68 and pretty much guarantee themselves their first postseason berth in 26 years.
But right now, that's looking tougher and tougher to do.
