Brewers Win The National League Central!!
Milwaukee Brewers took a while to do it, but they finally got it done. After losing five straight games during the week, Milwaukee turned it around and swept the New York Mets to win the National League Central on Sunday afternoon. Conspiracy theorists might say that the Brewers tanked this week, so, they could clinch on Ryan Braun day. Whatever it is was, I’m glad that the Brewers got it done this weekend in front of the fans at American Family Field. It’s been a truly special year and it’s only the beginning.

I am truly ready for an amazing Fall for the Brewers. It’s looking like it will be the Brewers against the Atlanta Braves which would be pretty damn cool in a year where both teams are honoring Hank Aaron. It could still be the Philadelphia Phillies which would be a rematch of the 2008 NL Divisional Series where the Brewers didn’t have a fucking shot. The Brewers and Braves would be a helluva matchup while I do think Brewers/Phillies would be more of a mismatch on paper yet Phillies have a lot of dudes that scare me.
The next week will all be about staying healthy and not having anything dumb happening. I’ll be honest with you that I want to see the Brewers end St. Louis’ fucking streak and make them clinch a playoff spot against somebody else. My guess is we will not see Corbin Burnes, Brandon Woodruff, or Freddy Peralta this week. At least Burnes and Peralta, and they will sparingly use Josh Hader and Devin Williams. It would be cool if they called up Ethan Small to see what he could do in a big-league outing.
Love this team and am ready to be the city of champions.
