So this guy pretty much sums up what it's been like to be a Brewer fan for the majority of the season. Hell even I turned off that 174-3 debacle of a loss in Pittsburgh last week. And I watched 99 percent of the games this franchise played from 1993-2005. So to say I have to be disgusted to look for something else on is an understatment. I once uttered the words "Welp, Turner Ward is up next inning, maybe he'll get things turned around." Yeah. Last week I was even spending more time on this page than brewers.com:
That's right. Looking at Bucks season ticket packages in July before the trading deadline. Welcome to the Twlight Zone.
But this team is starting to look like a bizarro world Brewers team. One that sucks in the first half and actually gets better as the season goes on. Normally we're 54-2 through April and May and then don't win again till the next April and May. But maybe this season is a reverse? 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. And 4-0 since Uecker came back to the booth. Some would call that a bizarre coincidence. I'm superstitious. There are no coincidences. In 2008 I grew out a beard at the beginning of the season and they went to the playoffs. I haven't been beardless since. Last summer when the Brewers were down 10-0 in Cleveland I went outside to grill out some brats. They came back to win 12-10 after a Prince grand slam. Guess what? Brats everyday for the next 3 10 weeks. So when you tell me this team is undefeated in Uecker's return it's not happenstance, it's science.
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? Here's hoping Doug Melvin reads this blog, it is the number one source for Brewers information/psychotic ramblings on ALL of b93radio.com. So Doug if you're out there, time to hit up the comment section and let my mom know what's going on. Because at the moment this team is starting to look like it's in hour 1, minute 35 of a two hour Rocky film. That's right baby! Come back work out montage!
