What a run

Well, the Brewers were eliminated last night and while it was disappointing to see them blow a 8.5 game lead, this team has tons of youth and will be one of the favorites for the NL central next year.  It’s going to be a ton of fun to watch Weeks, Fielder, Braun, and Hart put up a ton of runs next season.  If they can figure out what they are going to do with their 7 or 8 starters and their bullpen, they should be one of the teams to beat in the NL next year.

Considering we hadn’t seen meaningful September baseball since 1992, this was quite a season to watch.

    What a run? I’d say “what a collapse”. Thank the Mets for overshadowing the small market Brew crew and their choke job. If the Mets had taken care of business and locked things up when they could have, all of the talk right now would be how ugly the Brewers were down the stretch.

    As for being one of the teams to beat in the NL next year, they barely finished over .500 and STILL haven’t seen postseason play in 25yrs. Favorite in the Central? Chicago will be the team to beat, and if the Cardinals can get some real pitching and stay healthy, I’d say the division will come down to the final weeks between 3+ teams like it did this season.

    Baby steps. The Brewers first need to win a division or at least the wildcard before any discussion of being the “team to beat” in the NL.

    Agreed. The “comedy central” will be about the same next year, but I’d say it’s still between the Cubs and Cardinals. Fortunately, mediocre is enough in this division.

    I guess time will tell. The Brewers have as much, if not more talent, than the Cubs do. If they can solve their bullpen issues, they will be a strong team.

    Come on Jon… They had an 8 game lead early in the year. It’s nothing compared to the lead that the Red Sox nearly blew or what the Mets did.

    Time will tell…
