THINGS COULD BE WORSE BREWERS FANS
You could be a Cubs fan
More on that in a moment, but first Brewers fans are worried as the team arrives back in Milwaukee. Of the 28 teams that have gone up 2-0 in the Division Series, 21 have gone on to sweep the series.
I told my friends that the important thing for the Brewers this year was to make the postseason, but don't expect them to advance. For a young team, experience is important. But like Dale Sveum said to us yesterday, you don't want to be a one-hit wonder. Next year, expectations should be sky high.
That being said, 3 runs and 7 hits in 2 games just magnifies the Brewers all or nothing home run heavy offense. Last night after the game, Prince Fielder sat at his locker and stared at the wall for about 15 minutes.
And CC Sabathia is like the rest of the Brewers pitching staff...just running on fumes. How can you explain a 34 pitch 2nd inning, and pitcher Brett Myers working him for 19 of CC's 98 pitches? If you read CC's lips in the dugout, he said "I can't keep my pitches up," with a few expletives added that I took out.
But hey Brewers fans, at least you weren't the best team in the NL, that lost its first two games at home by more than 5 runs each. God bless Joe Torre for beating up on the Cubs. I'm trying to figure out if Cubs fans put an "L" flag out every time they lose that bad!
