I'm done. I made it to mid-September.
brew-crew is in... care to retract?
Yes. Yes I do.
What happens every September is I swear off baseball and then return a couple times for a little more abuse. MLB is my personal Ike Turner.
What happens every 26 years is the BREWERS MAKE THE PLAYOFFS!
I had seven heart attacks yesterday.
Though this team is not what I thought it was in late July--not so much an offensive beast with a few holes in its starting rotation and bullpen--but much more vulnerable, this is all I really wanted (okay, I really want to see a playoff game with my Pop).
I told myself I would just enjoy today and tomorrow. And call in sick Wednesday. But if I can hope for a second. If CC gets five seconds rest, Ben Sheets pumps himself full of drugs, and the Crew wins enough games to fall into a normal roation of Sabbathia, Sheets, Gallardo, and Bush, then they have a chance in Hell.
I like Sveum. I like that his lineup rewards guys with a respectable .OBP. So what if Craig Counsell is batting .037? He doesn't swing at pitches that land ten feet in front of home plate (Corey Hart needs to sit).
Next year, when I'm at Wrigley acting like a complete jackass, you Cubs fans can't use that 26 years line anymore. Then again, I may not be able to chant, "Century!"
