Brew Crew got swept by the hapless Buccos over the weekend. Pirates have only 7 wins on the season, 4 of them against the Brewers. After owning the Pirates for 15 years the tables have turned and that is one team Milwaukee can't beat. Think it was 2017, the Brewers lost 5 games to the Pirates in 4 days, losing both ends of a doubleheader. Then missed the playoffs by 1 game.

Brewers have 8 games left and are in a 3 way tie for the second wild card with the Giants and Reds. One game behind Cards for 2nd in division. Crew plays the Reds and Cards to finish the season so they control their own fate. Just win!

Brewers backed into the playoffs with the Giants and Philles both losing yesterday. Dodgers in round 1! Not saying it's likely but giving them a little payback for 2018 would be nice. If the could steal game 1 with Woodruff on the hill they have a shot.

Saw the end of the Giants game yesterday and thought of you GBdad. The home plate ump was lost. Ladt strike was pretty low and he called it strike 3. The batter flipped his helmet but said nothing. Oh well.

Yeah....that last strike in the Giants game was brutal. But I'll take it!

For some reason the Brewers are going with Brent Suter in Game 1 instead of Brandon Woodruff. Suter has had a good year and is that "crafty lefty" type rather than the fireballer that Woodruff is. Suppose the thinking is Suter can keep them off balance and if you can somehow steal game 1 with Suter on the mound you can close it out in game 2 Woodruff.

Update.......Since my initial post I found out that Devin Williams is not on the WC series roster because of a shoulder issue. Think The Crew should reconsider and pitch Woodruff tonight. Need game 1. Think they were hoping to have a lead after 5 innings with Suter, then run out Williams and Hader, two innings each to finish it out. Need more innings from your starter given that Williams can't go. In case you don't know, Williams should be a Rookie of the Year candidate: went 4-1 with a 0.33 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 27 innings this season.

That Dodgers/Padres game was wild last night! I can't stand that punk Manny Machado. He hits a home run and whips his bat toward the dugout. Okay. I've made my peace with "bat flipping." Later in the game Bellinger robs a home run to end the inning and the pitcher whips his glove toward the dugout and Machado starts yelling at him "f--k you!" Graterol blows him a kiss. Both benches start jawing. Machado is a typical spoiled child. I can do it to you, but you don't dare do it to me.
