Braves 5 Brewers 4: Pain. Utter Pain. Good Season, Brewers.
Milwaukee Brewers’ season is finished. It’s over. Just like that. We do not have the Milwaukee Brewers anymore to root for or get excited about. Bart Winkler of 1250 The Fan pointed out how the season ends so quickly compared to the other sports. He’s right. We did not even get a week to bask in the playoffs. Instead, it was five days and done for the year. The Atlanta Braves played in a weak NL East but made so many good moves through the season that set them up to be in the National League Championship Series for the second straight year and the 13th time overall. The sadness from last night covered nothing going right, Craig Counsell’s decision-making, and much more.

At the end of the day, this was a good season. People can say ‘We had a championship pitching staff’, but sometimes, baseball fucks you. This was not supposed to be a series that the Brewers lost. But they couldn’t catch any breaks from start to finish. Even though Milwaukee’s offense got them by in the regular season, it is evident that the Brewers need a power bat in this lineup. Whether that is Kyle Schwarber, Matt Olsen, or Nick Castellanos (Sidenote: I do not like him one bit, but he would be perfect so we all make sacrifices), they need to add some power to this lineup that is feared.
The two things that I hope from this series… One that Christian Yelich figures out whatever is wrong with him. My dad thinks he’s still hurt. I hope that’s the case. Two, Counsell assesses the job he did and finds what can be tweaked for next season. I still love this team and had so much fun this season.
