"Because right now this squad actually looks like it might have figured something out. 5 in a row. 7 straight at home. 11 of their last 15."
"I guess my question at this point is what happens if this team reels off 3 or 4 more games in a row before the Saturday trade deadline? Like do we become buyers then? For the last month all the trade rumors have been about the Crew getting rid of Prince, or Corey or Dave Bush, but if you can get to within 6 or 7 games by the weekend does that change"
Direct quotes from some jerk off blogger after the Brewers gave false hope to their fan base by putting together a modest 5 game winning streak. Too cute.
So what does that make me on predictions so far on this blog?
1. Brewers win World Series
2. Packers win Super Bowl
3. Bucks win title
4. LeBron stays in Cleveland
5. Bob Uecker is awesome.
I guess 1 out of 5 isn't bad.
Well now that I've returned from my trip to fantasy land I guess the only interesting thing about the next 3 days will be to see whether or not Melvin pulls the trigger on a Prince or Corey deal. Sounds like the Rangers and Angels have interest in Prince but I'm not sure any more details have come out since 42 seconds ago when I clicked 'refresh' on mlbtraderumors.com. I'm honestly driving revenue at that site right now with the amount of page visits they're getting from from my IP address. You're welcome mlbtraderumors, you're welcome. They should seriously consider releasing all Brewers rumors word by word on their site to guarantee 21234323 page hits by the end of the day.
So I think at this point I can finally admit that the season is a wash/they could still rip off a 15 game winning streak and get back in it. And while you may think I'm insane to type the second part of that sentence, you should understand that being able to even type the first part is progress for me. I'm an eternal sports optimist. Like if I were a Cubs fan I'd truly believe every year they could be 'the' year. Now excuse me while I clean up the vomit on my keyboard after typing "if I were a Cubs fan..."
PS: If the Rocky workout montage video can't save the season than nothing can. I thought it was a good parallel on Tueday, but after the last two games it would be as if Rocky trained his ass off only to get KO-ed by Drago in the 1st round, who would then proceed to steal Adrian from him after the fight while drinking vodka shots with Paulie at a bar across the arena. Acutally if Rocky IV would have ended that way then Rocky V would never have existed. Advantage: alternative ending.
